Among the surgeries done by Plastic Surgeons, the Rhytidectomy or facelift is of the ones that present more challenges to us because besides hiding the scars we have to deal with facial aging. For this is necessary to modify the nasiofold area, replace and lift deep structures that with time and gravity help descend from their original place. It is also challenging the way that the placements for these structures are made in a subtle form, in a way that no facial expressions are compromised and also to maintain face symmetry. The scars are located in face shadowy regions like the edge of the ear, below the earlobe and upper ear region to the scalp. Recovery time goes from 8 to 12 days and bandages and drainages are to be used at all time. The stitches removal can go from 15 to 20 days
