The Facelift procedure is commonly chosen by male to female transgender patients to create a more feminine appearance, as well as simply for it’s anti-aging, facial rejuvenation benefits. As we get older and our skin loses elasticity, wrinkles, lines and sagging can create a more hollowed out, or sunken in appearance that tends to look more masculine. The facelift surgery, also called Rhytidectomy, is performed through tiny, hidden incisions that allow the plastic surgeon to ease up sagging and smooth out wrinkles in the lower portion of the face.
In some cases the facelift procedure may be performed in combination with other facial rejuvenation procedures to create a more all-over, comprehensive rejuvenation. Most commonly paired with the facelift are procedures such as forehead correction, blepharoplasty (eyelid lift), nose correction, chin contouring, fat grafting, chin liposuction or augmentation.
