Facelift or Rhytidectomy is an operation designed to address the effects of ageing by repositioning deeper tissues to the original anatomic location and removing any excess skin, giving the face a fresher, more youthful appearance.
Key areas this treatment targets include:
- Deep wrinkles under and around the eye area
- Facial sagging
- Deep wrinkles between the nose and mouth (nasolabial folds)
- Loose fat areas
- Loose skin and fat under the chin
A full face lift involves the removal of excess skin from the neck and cheek areas whilst at the same time tightening the tissue underneath.
It is very common for this procedure to be performed in conjunction with Blepharoplasty, a brow lift or a neck lift to balance and complement the newly rejuvenated face.
