A facelift, or rhytidectomy, is a surgical operation which is used to improve the visible signs of aging on a person’s neck and face. Facial signs which are treated with a facelift include:
- Deep creases below lower eyelids
- Loss of skin tone in lower face
- Fat which has fallen or disappeared
- Sagging in middle of face
- Deep creases along nose extending to corner of the mouth
- Loose skin and excess fatty deposits under the jaw and chin
These issues can be caused by a variety of factors which includes gravity, environmental concerns, heredity, and stress. Typically, a brow lift and eyelid surgery are also performed during a facelift and can help to correct a sagging or furrowed brow and rejuvenate eyes which appear to have aged. It is important to remember that a facelift won’t change the way your face looks at its core.
