- Facelift surgery is medically known as Rhytidectomy. A facelift is a cosmetic surgical procedure that removes excess facial skin to make the face appear younger. Earlier the facelift surgery just tightened the face but nowadays facelift surgery does more by repositioning muscle, skin, and fat. This procedure can also tighten the underlying tissues, during the facelift procedure a flap skin of each side is pulled back and tissue below your skin is surgically altered to contour the face and get the youthful shape. Aging face not only losses the skin elasticity but also losses muscle fat. To achieve the perfect result additional procedure may be necessary which includes: neck lift, eyelid surgery, liposuction, autologous fat injection, removal of cheek fat pad, forehead lift, browlift, chemical or laser peel, and cheek or chin implants.
