What is a Facelift?
A facelift, also known as rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure able to provide the face with a healthy, more youthful appearance by treating the signs of aging in the lower half of the face. A facelift can treat sagging facial skin, jowls and loose neck skin by removing excess fat, tightening muscles and redraping the skin. Good candidates for a facelift include men and women ranging in age from their thirties to their eighties who are looking to improve the appearance of facial aging and are in good general health and realistic in their expectations. Dr. Boyce informs patients to be aware that a facelift will not stop the aging process.
