Vancouver Facelift Surgery Clinic offering Services & Treatments – Before and After Facelift Pictures
None of us can escape the ravages of time. Inevitably, gravity, personal habits, heredity and sun exposure can influence the aging process. As your skin begins losing its elasticity and muscles and other soft tissues weaken, jowls form along your jaw line. Smile lines become permanent, creases develop around your mouth and chin and vertical folds may appear at the front of the neck.
In the past, many people were inclined to accept such changes as the cost of growing older. Today, a growing number of women and men are taking the attitude that there’s no good reason to look older than you feel.

Facelift Surgery (Rhytidectomy)
Signs of aging, such as jowls, sagging skin in the mid-facial area, and excessive wrinkles, can all be addressed through facial cosmetic surgery. The medical term for a facelift is rhytidectomy. This refers to a procedure where the excess skin of the face is removed and a deeper layer of stronger tissue, referred to as the SMAS, is tightened. In certain cases, men may have a more limited procedure referred to as necklift.
An important trend to note is the move towards having the procedures done at an earlier age. Not only does it seem to be that the benefits appear to last longer, the change in appearance is less pronounced. A typical facelift will usually result in an appearance 5 to 7 younger than your actual age.
