Face lift
and neck lift

Face lift and neck lift

facelift, or rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure that improves visible signs of aging in the face and neck.

It will improve skin sagging on face and neck, reduce the fold lines between the nose and corner of the mouth, reduce loose skin and excess fat of the neck that can appear as a double chin, reduce jowls developing in the cheeks and jaw and restore youth facial fat volume.

The loss of youthful contours in the face can be due to variety of factors, including thinning of the skin, loss of facial fat, gravity, sun damage, smoking, as well as heredity and stress. Aging is different in every person. A detailed and individual analysis of your face is essential for planning your surgery.

It can be performed to treat the face, the neck or more frequently both simultaneously. Brow lift and eyelid surgery can be done in conjunction with a facelift. Fat transfer or fillers may be used to replace the lost fatty volume. Skin treatments such as dermabrasion or peels may be used to improve the quality and texture of the skin, reduce fine wrinkles and skin stains.
