As we age, the process begins to show on our body, especially our face. There are several common features that can be seen in everyone:
Facial fat loss that protrudes the cheekbones
A downward, inner movement of the cheek tissue
Flattening of the upper cheeks
Deepening of the Nasolabial fold creases
Hanging of skin and fat around the jaw line, called jowls
Loose skin around the neck and the formation of bands of fat
These changes are from a loss of the elasticity in soft tissues and skin of the face and gravity. A facelift procedure, called a Rhytidectomy in medical terms, is a plastic surgery procedure which is intended to correct the features of an aging face. In the procedure, skin and soft tissues are repositioned to their natural location in an up and back direction, tightening excess skin, repairing the underlying muscle.
