A facelift (rhytidectomy) can restore an individual’s face to its former contours, providing a more toned and firm face and neck and an overall fresher, younger appearance. The results of a facelift may be dramatic or subtle, in accord with the patient’s needs. A facelift can also be combined with another procedure such as eyelid surgery or a brow lift. The following facial problems can be corrected with a facelift:

  • Jowls
  • Fat deposits
  • Deep wrinkles and creases in facial skin
  • Creases between the nose and corners of the mouth
  • “Marionette lines” that go from corners of the mouth downward
  • Sagging neckline
  • Soft jaw line
  • Overall facial skin sagging
