The surgical removal of wrinkles
(Tıp, İlaç) A facelift, technically known as a rhytidectomy (literally, surgical removal of wrinkles), is a cosmetic surgery procedure used to give a more youthful appearance. It usually involves the removal of excess facial skin, with or without the tightening of underlying tissues, and the redraping the skin on the patient's face and neck. The first facelift was performed in Berlin in 1901 by Eugene Hollander. In 2004, the facelift was the fifth most popular cosmetic surgery performed after liposuction, rhinoplasty, breast augmentation and blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery)
