Rhytidectomy or “Facelift” is a surgical procedure carried out to remove lax skin. These laxities can be related to age, hereditary or environmental factors. Not everyone ages at the same rate. A great deal of the aging process relates to your tissues and what you do to care for them. There is no magical age to make the decision to have a facelift.
Contrary to some non-medical reports, it is not possible to remove all the folds and eliminate all the wrinkles of the face, regardless of the treatment applied. You must accept your cosmetic surgeon’s judgment and realize that he will only remove the skin of the face that can be done safely and suitable for your particular facial contour. The facelift procedure can improve wrinkled skin, but skin type and patient age are important factors in the final result. The smaller wrinkles can be improved with special Dr Shamloo’s skin kit.
