A facelift, officially called a rhytidectomy, is a procedure to tighten and lift the skin of the lower face.
As we age a number of changes take place with our face: there are changes in skin quality and elasticity, loosening of ligaments, volume loss and displacement of fat and glands. As a result, we develop wrinkles, get hollowness in the temple and cheeks and under eyes and the main bulk of the cheek volume also moves downwards with gravity.
Consequently, the nasolablial folds (nose to mouth lines), marionette lines (angle of mouth lines), and jowls begin to appear.
