Facial Lifting in Djerba, Tunisia by Dr. Ahlem Beltaief
Facial Lifting in Djerba, Tunisia by Dr. Ahlem Beltaief: A facelift, also known as a rhytidectomy or facial rejuvenation, refers to a surgical procedure aimed at correcting skin sagging, typically due to aging. The technique involves lifting the skin and tightening it. The face is most often the target of the rejuvenation. This surgical technique can be performed by surgeons specialized in maxillofacial surgery, plastic surgery, ENT, and dentistry.
The causes of skin sagging are attributed to both gravity and intrinsic and extrinsic factors. Recent analysis of facial aging mechanisms shows that all structures are involved: bone loss, fat loss, shifting of fibrous and muscular structures, uneven fat tissue storage in the neck and jowls.
