Technically termed as ‘rhytidectomy’, facelift surgery is a cosmetic surgery procedure used for giving a youthful appearance to your face by improving aging signs on your neck and face. It is done by removing excess skin, tightening underlying muscles and tissues, and re-draping skin on the affected areas. So, if you have midface sagging, jowls, double chin or marionette lines, you can have them corrected through a facelift surgery.
