As people get older the signs of aging is first noticed in the appearance of the face. The sagging of the face with deep creases below the lower eyelids becomes apparent. Fat in the cheeks begins to show the affects of gravity and with the loss of muscle tone and structure forms the sagging jowls on the face. The loose skin and excess fat deposits under the jaw and chin can even make a thin person appear to have a double chin. If you are bothered by these signs of aging, a facelift may be right for you. The surgical procedure to improve the appearance of the face and neck is called a rhytidectomy.
