What is Face Lift?
Facelift or rhytidectomy is a cosmetic procedure that is aimed at giving a younger face appearance. The surgery may decrease skin sagging or folds on the cheeks and jawline and other changes that happen with age in the form of the face. During a face-lift, skin flaps are taken down on either side of the face and tissues under the skin are modified surgically to restore the contour to a younger form. Excess skin is removed prior to suturing the flap.

Face Lift Procedure
In general, face-lift means that the skin is elevated and muscles tightened. Fat may be sculpted, removed or redistributed in the face and neck. The face skin is then re-draped and the wound tied or stitched to a close over the newly positioned face contours. Excess skin is removed. The incisions rely on the techniques used:
- A traditional face-lift incision – A traditional facial lift begins in the hairline temples, proceeds downwards and around the ears and finishes in the reduced scalp, behind the ears. Under the chin, an incision can be created to enhance the neck appearance.
- A limited incision – A limited incision is a smaller incision that starts above the ear in the hairline and wrapped around the front of the ear.
- Neck lift incision – It begins in front of the earlobe and proceeds to the lower scalp around the ear. There’s also a small incision under the chin.
