Rhytidectomy is generally called as “face lift”. It is a type of cosmetic surgery used to give young facial appearance. It involves the removal of excess facial skin, by with or without the tightening of the skin on the patient's face and neck. Facelifts are effectively combined with eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) and are typically performed under general deep twilight sleep or anaesthicia.
It is a plastic surgery for the removal of wrinkles, done to make an aging face as younger.
