Face Lift surgery, also called Rhytidectomy, is a procedure performed to rejuvenate the appearance of the lower portion of the face and reduce the effects of aging. The face lift procedure is primarily used remove excess, sagging skin in the lower face and neck, lift fallen fat, smooth out deep folds and creases in the nose and corner of the mouth, reduce the appearance of jowls, and improve the overall contour of the face. The face lift procedure may be performed on its own or in combination with other facial rejuvenation procedures such as an eyelid lift or brow lift, or paired with non-surgical facial rejuvenation procedures such as botox or fillers for a more comprehensive rejuvenation for the whole face. It is important to note that the face lift procedure will not altogether halt the aging process, and incision scars, while hidden in the hairline and natural creases of the head will be permanent.

Patients who wish to achieves the results of a face lift procedure without undergoing a surgical procedure have non-surgical options, however, they cannot accomplish the same results as the face lift procedure. Particularly when it comes to the issue of excess, sagging skin there is as yet no alternative option for reducing this sagging appearance without surgical intervention.
