  • Modern Day Facelift

    The stigma around facelifts has changed drastically over the past decades. 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.

In some cases, the sagging skin around the eyes can begin to obstruct your vision, especially the upper and outer parts of your field of vision.
