Facelift Case #461
Facelift is technically known as a rhytidectomy and is a type of cosmetic surgery procedure used to give a more youthful facial appearance. There are multiple surgical techniques. It usually involves the removal of excess facial skin, with or without the tightening of underlying tissues, and the redraping of the skin on the patient’s face and neck. Facelifts are effectively combined with eyelid surgery and other facial procedures and are typically performed under general anesthesia or deep twilight sleep.
A facelift is performed to rejuvenate the appearance of the face. Aging of the face is most shown by a change in position of the deep anatomical structures, which are the platysma muscle, cheek fat and the orbicularis oculi muscle. These lead up to three landmarks namely, an appearance of the jowl, increased redundancy of the nasolabial fold and the increased distance from the ciliary margin to the inferior-most point of the orbicularis oculi muscle.
