It is easy to see why facelifts, technically known as a rhytidectomy, are one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries. Facelifts offers solutions to common signs of aging. There are multiple styles of facelifts that offer different strategies, all involving tightening facial tissue that has lost elasticity over time. Typically, the patient is asleep during the surgery, and the process is completed within a couple of hours.
If you are unsatisfied with signs of aging such as sagging in the mid-face area (the space between the cheeks), deep creases below the lower eyelids, creases along the nose, loose muscle tone that creates jowls (sagging cheeks dropping below the chin) or fatty deposits under the chin that appear to be a double chin, a facelift could be the solution you are looking for.
The only way to really know is to consult with an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Fred Bressler, who will consider your goals and guide you in your decision-making.
