Facelift or Face Lift (Rhytidectomy)

Over time, the effects of ageing, gravity and sun cause our skin and muscles to sag, making the appearance of wrinkles and excess skin on our faces more obvious. To counteract these effects, many women are electing to have facelifts.

A facelift is a surgical procedure that rejuvenates the appearance of the ageing face through the removal of excess fat, tightening of the facial muscles and re-draping of the skin on the face and neck.

Facelifts are often combined with other surgical procedures, such as eyelid surgery, a brow lift and nose surgery. A facelift is medically referred to as a rhytidectomy.

Facelifts are in equal demand globally and in Australia, ranked amongst the top five most popular cosmetic surgical procedures in 2009. In the US market for which 2010 data is available, the number of facelifts increased by over 35 percent from 2009, becoming the seventh most sought-after cosmetic surgery procedure in that year.
