Tighten loose skin, remove wrinkles to create a more youthful appearance.

The facelift (rhytidectomy) is performed by surgically lifting (tightening) facial and neck skin and underlying muscle as well as removing excess fat. This cosmetic procedure is one of the most popular and satisfying. Over 100,000 Americans between their 20s and 90s will reverse some of the effects of sun exposure, gravity, aging and stress with a facelift this year. If you are ready to "turn back the clock", you can appear more rested, healthier and vigorous.

A facelift can be done alone, or in conjunction with other procedures such as a forehead lift, brow lift, eyelid contouring or nose shaping. Your final look should not be tight or expressionless and it should not be obvious that you have had a procedure. Together, you and your surgeon can determine the best procedures and timing to create your rejuvenated new look.
