A facelift, or rhytidectomy, is a corrective surgery to create a more youthful appearance in your face. As you age, the skin on your face loses some of its natural collagen and elastin. As a result, it starts to sag and crease around the cheek, jawline and neck areas. Additionally, the nasolabial folds and nose-to-mouth lines deepen. A facelift will correct this sagging, creasing and pronounced folds, leading to a smoother, more youthful-looking face.
There are many variations to a facelift operation. Additionally, a facelift is often combined with other procedures such as eye lift (blepharoplasty) and lip lift. The main types of facelifts are highlighted below.
