AMARILLA, Jesus; ALDANA, Celso  and  SANDOVAL, José. Classic rhythodoplasty: a current technique. An. Fac. Cienc. Méd. (Asunción) [online]. 2021, vol.54, n.3, pp.167-172. ISSN 1816-8949.

Corrective surgery for facial aging has more than a century of documented history. Cultural changes have increased the number of operations. In Latin America it has also increased, and the region has been active in making contributions in complementary concepts, techniques, and procedures. In addition to quantitative growth, the understanding of facial anatomical planes, changes with age and the ways to correct them have been very useful. Our cervical-facial lifting technique presents advantages such as safety in the dissection plane, absence of scar traction and capillary respect, providing a natural final result according to the request of the patients.
