A rhytidectomy, also known as a facelift is a cosmetic procedure that removes sagging skin to reshape the structure of your face. A facelift can have a powerful impact in creating a more youthful and refreshed looking version of yourself.
As a person continues to age their facial tissue becomes less elastic and they continue to lose facial volume. Wrinkles begin to develop on the forehead and around the eyes. A person’s eyebrows begin to sag. The skin and fat around the eyes themselves begins to droop. The lines around the mouth become more prominent, especially in people who are smokers or who have spent considerable amounts of time in the sun. The tissue around the jaw line also sags to the point that “jowling” and a “turkey-neck” may develop.
