Facial lifting, also known as facial stretching or rhytidectomy, is an aesthetic surgery designed to soften the face, reducing evident signs of aging in the neck and face.
Facelifts are one of the most common procedures for reducing signs of aging. This surgery lifts the sagging skin tissue on the face, allowing the jawline to show.
There are various fascial stretching procedures used on younger people, known as mini facelifts, that can begin at age 35.
It is important to understand that a facelift will not improve eyelids, eyebrows, forehead or wrinkles around the mouth. Many times, a facelift is combined with other surgeries to obtain best results. It can also be done alone or along with other treatments or interventions.
