Rhytidectomy, commonly known as a facelift, involves many areas of facial aesthetics. The surgical technique is extremely comprehensive in addressing multiple areas of the aging face. It assists in giving the face a more youthful appearance by helping in the treatment of wrinkles and sagging skin.
By having a facelift, you can expect a longer lasting result for facial rejuvenation. A facelift can be broken down into its several areas of interest depending on the individual desire. Each patient will have a different need as such the surgery will be tailored to individual desires.
The components of a facelift may include upper and/or lower blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery), sections of the face (upper, mid or lower face), or full face and/or neck lift.
A facelift can considerably reduce these signs of aging by removing excess fat, tightening the underlying muscles, and re-draping the skin around the neck and face. If your problem areas are limited to the neck, a more conservative approach, known as a "neck lift" may be the procedure needed to achieve a more defined jawline.
