Facelift (or Rhytidectomy) surgery is meant to address the signs of facial aging particularly in the lower cheek and neck. These signs of aging include the jowls in the lower cheek and the excess skin of the neck. If these signs of aging are concerns when one looks in the mirror, the solution is the facelift.
