Producing a Natural Looking Facelift

Producing a Natural Looking Facelift

A facelift (also known as rhytidectomy) is the most comprehensive approach to treating facial wrinkles and sagging caused by aging. The surgery varies in a range from minimally invasive ‘lunchtime lifts’ to more extensive, sophisticated surgery. A facelift removes excess skin, tightens underlying tissues and muscle and redrapes skin on the face and neck. It can correct midface sagging, marionette lines, jowls and a double chin, maintaining its reputation as the ‘gold standard’ for facial rejuvenation. Every year, thousands of people undergo successful facelift surgery and are pleased with the results. In this Smart Beauty Guide Exclusive, board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Christopher Chang based in Washington, D.C., explains how to produce a natural looking facelift.
