The Facelift Operation
Foreheads, Cheeks and Necks
Rhytidectomy is the medical term for the operation designed to remove or lift wrinkles and sagging tissues from the forehead, face, and neck. The term “facelift” is often used incorrectly to describe a total facial rejuvenation, which, in reality, consists of eyelid surgery, facelift and perhaps skin resurfacing.
The goal of the facelift operation is to reduce the sagging and wrinkling caused by loose skin and to lift or reposition both the muscles and fatty tissues of the face and neck which tend to sag with advancing years or premature aging. Facelifting does not correct problems in the upper or lower eyelids, or the wrinkles or creases in the lips-other procedures (blepharoplasty or skin resurfacing) are required for these conditions, but can be performed at the same time.
