Rhytidectomy or facelift aims to remove excess skin and reposition the muscles and fatty tissues of the middle and lower thirds of the face by repositioning these tissues in the appropriate places, fixing them in deep planes and giving adequate support, modeling the structures anatomical, returning the firmness, beauty and youth to the face.
