Face Lift / Rhytidectomy
A face lift, or rhytidectomy, can "turn back time" by adjusting the fat, muscle and skin on your face to create a smoother and more youthful appearance. For best results face lift surgery is often performed alongside eyelid surgery or a neck lift. Because the face is a strong indicator of a person's age, many men and women consider visiting a face lift surgeon to remove wrinkles around the eyes, nose, and mouth, as well as improve the appearance of sagging skin around the chin and neck to improve self confidence or gain an advantage in the workplace. Although it is recommended to maintain a daily skin care regimen and seek non-surgical face lift treatments to prolong the time before undergoing a face lift, surgery is the only way to tighten deep tissues and remove excess skin.
Regardless of whether you are a man or woman, getting a face lift can help boost your self-confidence by rejuvenating your face and giving you a more youthful appearance. Although face lifts are most commonly performed on patients in their forties to sixties, individuals in their seventies and eighties can still have a successful face lift. The key to a successful facelift is having skin that, while it may be sagging around the face or neck, still possesses some elasticity. Having a bone structure that is well-defined and strong is the other important factor for being able to undergo a successful face lift.
