No matter how well you care for your skin, natural aging processes, environmental conditions, hormonal changes, weight changes, stress, gravity, and heredity can cause facial skin to lose its elasticity and firmness. Over time, your face loses its tone, your cheeks and jaw sags, and deep creases form around the nose and mouth. Facial fillers and topical creams can improve many of these issues, but dramatic results require a facelift surgery.
A facelift, also called a rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure that gives your face a more youthful look. This restorative surgery can correct sagging skin, deep creases around the nose, lift jowls, and create a more defined jawline. The procedure can also enhance the facial skin, define facial structures, and reduce wrinkles.
