What is a Rhytidectomy?
In recent years’ plastic surgery has grown in popularity with face lifts amongst some of the most popular. A rhytidectomy, more commonly recognised as a facelift is an elective cosmetic procedure with the outcome of lifting and tightening the face to provide a more youthful appearance. The procedure includes reducing wrinkles and the excess saggy skin to improve the appearance of the face, patients have the option to either undergo a full facelift or to target certain key areas which mostly include the lower face area, brow region or around the neck.
