Face Lift Surgery


The facelift, also called rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure designed to improve the visible signs of aging on the face and neck. As the individual ages, the skin and muscles of the face and neck region begin to lose their tone. Although the facelift cannot stop the aging process, it can improve the most visible signs of it by tightening and repositioning the deep and superficial facial layers and structures of the face and neck. This procedure may be combined with others, such as brow lift (aimed at raising eyebrows to open the sight), forehead lift (to permanently remove forehead wrinkles) or suture techniques and resuspension platysma muscle of the neck (in cases where the "chin" is the main problem of the patient). Although each facial plastic surgeon prints a personal technique for each patient, the techniques used in the past yielded flats faces and a feeling of "I have operated" have evolved over the years. It is very important that the results should be previously agreed by both the patient and the surgeon, and that is very important to maintain the naturalness of facial expression. There is no age limit for an operation of a facelift, but most cases are often women and men aged 45-50 years and above. It is very important for smokers that it can increase the chance of complication of this procedure.
