A Facelift or rhytidectomy is a surgical procedure that can rejuvenate the appearance of your face and neck. The procedure removes excess skin and fat, and tightens muscles and skin. This can restore more youthful contours of the face. Aging is a natural process that will cause the loss of youthfulness in the face. Other factors that can contribute to this process include sun exposure, genetics, gravity and stress.
