Face Lift (Rhytidectomy)

Facelift (Rhytidectomy)

A facelift is a surgical procedure to improve signs of aging in the face and neck caused by stress, over-exposure to the sun, and the natural aging process.  Areas that can be addressed include:

  • Sagging of the face and jowl area
  • Deep creases between the nose and mouth
  • Fat that has fallen or is displaced
  • Loss of muscle tone in the lower face
  • Loose skin and excess fatty deposits under the chin and jaw

Someone considering a facelift might also be a good candidate for other facial rejuvenation procedures including brow lift, to correct a sagging or deeply furrowed brow, and eyelid surgery to refresh and rejuvenate tired looking or aging eyes, or a laser procedure to further reduce or minimize lines on the face that cannot be eliminated by a facelift procedure alone.
