The facelift , also known as facial rejuvenation surgery, or rhytidectomy, is a procedure that aims at reducing neck and facial sagging. Fat and facial muscles affected by the passage of time and gravity, lose their original tension.
The facelift achieves facial rejuvenation by extracting excess fat, tensing underlying muscle and tightening face and neck skin to improve the most visible signs of aging.
The best candidates for a facelift are those who show signs of sagging but have a certain skin elasticity and strong well defined bone structure.
Most patients are between 50 and 70, but this can be performed successfully in older people.
