PS Snippets: Facelift

A facelift, or rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure that improves visible signs of aging in the face and neck, such as relaxation of the skin of the face causing sagging, deepening of the fold lines between the nose and corner of the mouth, jowls developing in the cheeks and jaw and loose skin and excess fat of the neck that can appear as a double chin or turkey neck.
