What is facelift surgery? A facelift surgery is technically known as rhytidectomy. It is a cosmetic surgery that is fundamentally used to transform a facial appearance from one that has signs of aging to one that has a more youthful look. It improves noticeable signs of aging from the face and neck. A facelift surgery usually involves multiple techniques. These rejuvenation techniques are usually performed along with other surgeries for effective results.
An aging face tends to lose elasticity which results in looser and droopy skin. Apart from this the aging process causes a loss in both muscle tone and fat. A facelift surgery will usually involve the removal of excess skin and even tightening of underlying tissue. It is important to understand that facelift surgery is only a restorative procedure and will not bring about a change in the fundamental appearance of a person. Also, it will not stop the natural aging process.
