Reshaping of the face is a choice that in current age and time is being opted by a host of candidates with varying needs. The face reshaping procedure is actually also termed as simply a facelift. The technical term though a bit tough on the tongue is rhytidectomy. It is classified as a surgical procedure to remove excess facial fat and skin, tighten the facial muscles, and hence repositioning the skin on the face as well as the neck. This procedure is done to have the possible signs of aging reduced, resulting in a more youthful appearance.
