Face Lift is a cosmetic surgery procedure that is performed to rejuvenate the face when more severe signs of aging have set in such as skin sagging and deep creases and wrinkles in the lower portion of the face. The Face Lift, also called Rhytidectomy, may be performed on its own or in combination with other facial rejuvenation procedures such as a brow lift, eyelid lift, or facial implants. The face lift procedure is performed through an incision in the hairline around the temples, ear and lower scalp region. The muscles and underlying tissue of the region may be lifted and repositioned, excess skin removed, and fat may be redistributed before the remaining skin is redraped and closed to create a smoother, more youthful, yet still natural looking result.
