Facial Lifting or rhytidectomy is a surgical procedure performed to improve the visible signs of the face and neck aging. Facial lifting is the right option if the signs of aging in your face and neck bother you.
As we get on years the skin and muscles of the face begin to lose tone and firmness. Both gravity and diminished volume result in the facial features of aging. Facial lifting cannot stop the genetic clock but can improve the signs of aging.
Complete lifting is associated with frontal, facial and neck lifting. With this technique we can correct, with only one intervention, all the effects of ageing and reach a spectacular result.
The incisions are those of all the other techniques, they all remain perfectly hidden and are hardly visible.
