Rhytidectomy (Facelift)

A Rhytidectomy also known as a facelift, is a procedure in cosmetic surgery that gives a more rested and youthful appearance to the face. This procedure is aimed at improving the lower half of the face by removing excess sagging skin and tightening the underlying structures. Therefore, eliminating the area known as “jowls” that can develop with aging, and gives the patient a more defined jawline. It also helps improve the severity of deep creases around the lateral mouth and nose, giving the face a smoother more defined appearance.
