A facelift, which is also referred to as a rhytidectomy, is a cosmetic surgery that can restore a youthful appearance by improving the signs of aging in the face. The procedure will reshape the lower portion of the face and remove excess facial skin. In addition, it can tighten jowls and remove fat under the neck. It is a popular procedure in the United States. In 2016, there were 107,261 women and 13,702 men who had the procedure administered. In addition, it is the fifth most popular aesthetic surgical procedure among men.
How to Prepare
When you are preparing for a facelift, you will undergo a medical evaluation to see if you are an ideal candidate for the procedure. You may also be asked to apply certain products to your face before the procedure, and it is also important that you stop taking certain medications that can increase the likelihood of any issues. It is also important to stop smoking for a set amount of time before and after a facelift.
