Clinically known as rhytidectomy, is a procedure used to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles and other telltale signs of aging, with the goal of improving the overall appearance of the face and jaw. Facelift surgery can help to reverse the harmful effects of time, stress, and exposure to the elements. To perform this procedure Dr. Pecino, plastic surgeon at Clinica La Siesta, will lift and tighten the underlying muscles of the face to create more aesthetically pleasing contours appearance and rejuvenate the facial structure. Then he will remove excess pockets of fat and skin that can contribute to an aged, tired appearance.

Clinica La Siesta’s experienced, skilled plastic surgeon will perform this procedure with an artistic eye and extraordinary attention to detail so that patients will be left with negligible scarring and beautiful, natural-looking results. In addition to traditional full facelifts, there are several other variations of the procedure to address specific areas of the face. Our plastic surgeon use advanced minimally invasive techniques to minimize discomfort and downtime. For qualified patients, facelift surgery can be an excellent investment, providing a fresher, more youthful appearance for years to come


Facelift surgery can be an effective way to improve appearance and boost self-confidence, but it is not for everyone. Some patients might find that they can achieve their cosmetic goals with a non-invasive procedure, such as a chemical peel or microdermabrasion (also available at Clinica La Siesta). Others may be happier with their results if they combine facelift surgery with other procedures, such as a neck lift or forehead lift (also available). Patients who understand both the possibilities and limitations of facelift surgery tend to be more pleased with their results.

Facelift Surgery for Men

Facelift surgery isn’t just for women. Men can also turn to rhytidectomy to erase the signs of aging and achieve a younger, rejuvenated look. The steps of the procedure are typically the same for both sexes, and both men and women can enjoy outstanding cosmetic results.

Are There Age Restrictions for Facelift Surgery?

Age is not the most important factor in determining candidacy for facelift surgery; skin elasticity and overall health have far more bearing on a patient’s ability to undergo this procedure. Most patients who undergo rhytidectomy are between the ages of 40 and 70 years old. However, people older than 70 can benefit from the surgery, as well. A qualified plastic surgeon can further evaluate each patient’s skin texture and condition to make individual judgments and recommendations regarding candidacy.

Facelifts for Seniors

More people over the age of 50 are turning to cosmetic surgery to improve their appearance. Seniors are lining up for facelifts, laser skin resurfacingBOTOX® treatment, and blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery)*. Clinia La Siesta will take into account each person’s particular circumstances, including age, before approving cosmetic surgery. Seniors undergoing surgery should understand that they will not look 20 years younger, although they will certainly look more youthful.
