(also known as rhytidectomy)....
Some of the most visible signs of aging first appear on the
face. Although the changes appear gradually, there may come
a day when you look in the mirror and decide that the face you
see doesnt reflect the way you feel about yourself. If
youd like to look as good as you feel, a facelift can
help. Also known as rhytidectomy, a facelift smooths the loose
skin on your face and neck, tightens underlying tissues and
removes excess fat. As a result, your face will appear firmer
Facelifts are most commonly performed on patients in the 40-60
age range. However, the procedure can produce good results for
people in their 60s, 70s and 80s as well. You may be a good
candidate for a facelift if you have any of the following types
a deep line that runs from the corner of your nose to
the corner of your mouth
loss of a well-defined jawline
deep wrinkles in the cheeks and sagging skin near the
loose skin, wrinkles or excess fatty tissue in the neck.
