The face and neck lift (technically called rhytidectomy) is the most comprehensive and profound approach to the correction of the sagging and falling tissues of the face and neck. It does not “stop the clock”, but it can delay it by a few years, improving the most visible signs of aging. It allows the correction of the fallen “cheeks”, the grooves around the nose and chin and the “double chin”. It can be complemented with other procedures and techniques, such as eyebrow repositioning, eyelid surgery, chemical peeling, amongst others. Surgery can range from a minimally invasive procedure to a more extensive, sophisticated one, depending on the patient's characteristics. Preserving the patient's individuality, facial traits and expressions is mandatory in this surgery, which does not intend to transform the face, only to rejuvenate it. Despite its complexity, this is one of the most rewarding interventions in the world of plastic, aesthetic and reconstructive surgery.
