As people age, the effects of gravity, exposure to the sun, and the stress of daily life can be seen in their faces.
A facelift, or rhytidectomy, can't stop this aging process but it can "set back the clock" by improving the most visible signs of aging by removing excess fat, tightening underlying muscles and redraping the skin of your face and neck. A facelift can be done alone or in conjunction with other procedures such as a forehead lift, eyelid surgery or nose reshaping.
The best candidates are men or women whose faces have begun to sag, but whose skin still has some elasticity and whose bone structure is strong and well-defined. Most patients are in their 40s to 60s, but facelifts can be done successfully on people in their 70s and 80s as well.
While a facelift can't give you a totally different look, it can make you look younger and fresher and may enhance your self-confidence in the process.
