face lift or rhytidectomy or surgery for removal of facial wrinkles is perhaps the oldest cosmetic surgery procedure performed.
As one ages, the effects of gravity, exposure to the sun, and the stresses of daily life can be seen in the faces. Skin sags down, deep creases start to appear on cheeks, between the nose and mouth; the jaw line grows slack and jowls appear. Folds and fat deposits appear around the neck and double chin forms. A facelift can make you look younger and fresher, and it may enhance your self- confidence. This surgery is commonly performed after the age of 40 years and there is no upper age limit.
