A rhytidectomy, or facelift, is a plastic surgery procedure designed to make people look younger. It is often performed in conjunction with blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery. Different types of facelifts exist, mostly due to the type of incision and what area of the face is being treated. A consultation with your doctor will determine what kind of rhytidectomy is right for you.
