What is a Facelift and How Can You Benefit From One?

A facelift also known as a rhytidectomy is a surgical procedure that is performed to rejuvenate and improve the signs of aging in the face and neck.  A facelift is designed to correct sagging in the midface, repair loss of muscle tone in the lower face that creates the appearance of jowls, remove loose skin and excess fat, improve deep creases between the nose and mouth and reposition fat that has fallen or is displaced.

  • Each year more than 150,000 men and women undergo a facelift to address concerns in the lower 2/3 of the face.
  •  This procedure which gives a rested, more youthful appearance is often combined with other procedures including a necklift, eyelid surgery, browlift, and other rejuvenation techniques. 
  • A facelift will not change your fundamental appearance and does not stop the aging process, but can be a great way to achieve your rejuvenation goals.
