Dr. Anurag Agarwal, member of the Society of Aesthetic plastic Surgery, believes that facial cosmetic surgery including face lift, is one of the best suggested methods to increase the attractivity of the face and to get rid of wrinkles developed due to aging and that Iran is one of the best countries in the world to have skin cosmetic surgery. Face lift or Rhytidectomy is done through surgical and non-surgical methods and for treating the skin of those whom their skin has become loose and hanging severely due to aging though surgical method is more popular since that Rhytidectomy surgery has more effects and its effects last more. Rhytidectomy (face lift) can make one look up to 10 years younger and prettier. This procedure is usually done for those between the ages of 40-60. Extra facial fat is removed in the face lift, and the doctor reduces the wrinkles through tightening the facial and neck muscles and increasing their strength.
What factors affect the outcome of face lift?

However, it can be expected that there will be no need for reoperation until 10 years after having face lift surgery.

The procedure of face lift surgery
Face lift surgery can be performed under local or general anaesthesia.The duration of this surgery is 1-3 hours. In this procedure, the surgeon makes a tiny incision in the temple area and near the ears, lifting the facial skin and removing excess fat by a suction device and therefore repairs the loose areas of the face then pulls back the wrinkled and hanging parts of the skin to their previous position and tightens the subcutaneous muscles in different areas of the face in case they are loose. Eventually, the skin is returned to its previous and original position and sutured with absorbable and small suture threads, including monocryl,in other words, the wrinkled facial skin will be pulled close to the ear. About the incisions in face lift surgery, we should mention that the surgeon makes the incisions around and close to the ear to be hidden among the hair which means that the incision made in the front part of the ear goes down and warps around the auricle and ends behind the ear.
