A rhytidectomy or facelift is a procedure to tighten and lift the skin of the lower face. As we age a number of changes take place with our face. The face, in particular the cheeks, begin to lose volume. The main bulk of the cheek volume also moves downwards with gravity. The skin loses its elasticity and so becomes more loose and sags more.
Consequently, the nasolablial folds (nose to mouth lines), marionette lines (angle of mouth lines), and jowls begin to appear. Most patients undergoing this procedure will be between 40 to 60 years of age. They will have started to experience sagging of the skin around the lower face and neck.
