As we age, our facial skin loosens and forms jowls or folds, and the muscles of the neck may sag as well. Skin type, ethnic background, basic bone structure, and lifestyle all help to determine the degree of change and at what age. A facelift (rhytidectomy) can address these problems by firming and tightening the skin of the face and neck all in one step. While a facelift cannot stop aging, what it can do is help your face look its best and give you a look of health and a more youthful appearance.

Additional therapies such as laser resurfacing can be used in combination with a facelift to improve and smooth wrinkles and skin texture. Also, since most people lose facial fat as part of the aging process, they may need to add volume using fillers, implants or fat in conjunction with their face lift for best results. And certain patients may require liposuction to remove excess fatty deposits.

Oftentimes, an upper face lift such as a forehead lift or eyelid surgery would be best to create overall balance for total facial rejuvenation.
