FACELIFT SURGERY* It is a pretty common saying that life begins at 40. Well, many people have proven this to be true as somehow they find a new outburst of enthusiasm in life during their forties. The other side of the coin, however, is that you may be starting to accumulate facial skin issues at the age of 40 or older. For instance, you may be having sagging and excess skin all over your face, jaw line and neck. These facial maladies are generally caused by a combination of factors, such as ageing, natural elements, and stress. At some point, you may be able to delay their occurrence, but gradually and eventually they will make their presence felt on your face. In most cases, your best remedy to these facial skin concerns is to undergo a surgical procedure known as facelift surgery or technically known as rhytidectomy. A rhytidectomy surgery involves contracting and realigning the facial and neck skin to make it smoother, firmer and much more youthful in appearance. Typically, the procedure includes the removal of excess fat deposits from the face to the neck area. Understandably so, a facelift can also treat skin problems involving sagging jawline, crease lines along with the mouth and chin, and fine facial lines and folds. You should bear in mind thus that you may be subjected to different rhytidectomy techniques as it all depends on your particular and the extent of your facial skin problems.
