The Rhytidectomy (also called a facelift) is a surgical procedure that is designed to rejuvenate the appearance of the lower portion of the face and neck. Rhytidectomy can reverse these common signs of aging: sagging in the middle portion of the face, lines and deep creases from the nose to the corner of the mouth, loss of elasticity in the jowls, loose skin and/or fatty deposits in the lower face and neck. There are a number of factors that can contribute to the rate at which we age from genetics to lifestyle and environmental conditions. The Rhytidectomy procedure may be performed on its own or in combination with other facial rejuvenation procedure such as a brow lift, eyelid lift or dermal fillers for a more comprehensive rejuvenation.
