Face Lift Surgery
The face shows some of the most visible signs of ageing. Children and young adults have smooth, good textured skin with well defined facial contours due to even distribution of fat and natural attachment of muscles. Over the time, skin begins to wrinkle and sag as a result of age, sun exposure and genetics, giving a much older appearance than you are.
To rejuvenate the appearance of face by tightening the skin and muscles of face, chin and neck, thus correcting the wrinkles, lower face bags (jowls) and chin folds. The resultant changes give you pleasing and younger look.
Face lift or Rhytidectomy is a scientifically planned operation to restore the vectors of the skin & underlying muscles. Done with minimal possible incisions in the temple, in front of ear and around ear lobe, the skin is elevated and underlying sagging muscle layer is anchored in natural position. Newer techniques allow us to perform this procedure with hidden mini incisions using endoscopic instruments. A face lift is frequently performed in combination with other procedures like blepharoplasty, fat grafting, brow lift, chin liposuction / chin augmentation – to achieve overall rejuvenation of face.
