What is a rhytidectomy?

A rhytidectomy, or facelift, is a procedure performed to tighten the skin and deeper tissues around the face and neck.

One can ignore the signs of aging as long as they choose but the effects are inevitable; skin begins to sag, deep creases form, and fat and volume are lost.  There comes a point in our lives when time and gravity begin to win the game of youth against topical tricks.  At times simply tightening the facial skin and underlying structures will not replace the volume that is lost, and because of that, fat grafting can often be performed in conjunction with the facelift. Through fat grafting, fat cells can be transferred from unwanted areas to areas of the face that are deficient.

How the facelift procedure has changed over the years

Over the years, the facelift procedure has changed from simple skin lifting and tightening to more complex techniques where we address more of the underlying issues such as tissue support and volume replacement.  The procedure results in a reversal of the effects of gravity and aging to restore a more youthful contour to the face!
