As people age, the effects of gravity, exposure to the sun, and the stresses of everyday life are seen on the face. Some of the effects include deep creases between the nose and mouth, jowl-like jawline, slack skin, and/or extra fat on the neck. A facelift can help turn back the clock on these effects by removing excess fat, tightening the underlying muscles, and re-draping the skin of the face and neck.
Mini Facelift Surgery – Rhytidectomy is the name for a group of operations to restore the effects of aging. Time and gravity take their tolls on our facial beauty. Tissues lose their youthful tone and sag. Sun and the environment set the lines of time into the surface of the face with wrinkles and lines. For some cultures, these effects represent the earned years of wisdom and respect. For other cultures, the aging process is a loss of youth and a possible competitive edge.
