Facelifts have been the gold standard in facial rejuvenation for many years. With well-performed facelifts helping people look up to 10-15 years younger, it’s no surprise they remain one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures for both men and women alike. In fact, 123,685 facelifts were performed in 2019 alone.
A facelift, also known as a rhytidectomy, significantly reduces visible signs of aging in the face, correcting deep wrinkles, folds, jowls, and laxity to restore a firmer, tighter, more youthful appearance. If you’re like most people considering the procedure, you’re probably wondering, “How do you know if you need a facelift, and do I need one?”
