rhytidectomy, facelift or facial rejuvenation surgery is aimed at removing excess facial skin and correct the facial angles can be found harmed by the effects of gravity or both skin aging and bone.
Over the years the skin of the face is relaxed due to loss of elasticity, sun exposure, the effect of gravity and the effect of some gestures repetitive facial expression. This creates an excess of skin that is loose, enhancing the folds or wrinkles and lost facial contour angles. On the other hand, also note reabsorption of facial bones to spend on the jaw and cheekbones less prominent and encouraging the sloughing.
The facelift does not seek to stop the facial aging process, just pretend disguise to understand the elements of aging. Maybe needed to remove excess skin, refine lines (wrinkles) to tighten skin and muscles of the face and recreate again right angles to the face. Since there may be bone resorption also may be required facial fillers, osteotomy (modifying the shape of the bone) or stent placement in areas like the chin.

The Facelift Procedure
A facelift (technically known as a rhytidectomy) will help reduce some of the most visible signs of aging. Tightening underlying muscles and redraping the skin helps reduce the appearance of the deep creases between the nose and mouth, and tightens the lax skin of the jawline and neck. In addition, excess fat in the neck is removed.
A facelift can be performed alone or in conjunction with other procedures such as a forehead lift, eyelid surgery, or rhinoplasty.
