Rhytidectomy is more commonly referred to as a facelift. The fundamental urge to remain young is a major factor propelling the worldwide rhytidectomy market.

The rhytidectomy market is extremely sensitive to various social and cultural issues, as well as the media's and the fashion industry's impact, peer pressure for attractiveness, and shifting definitions of beauty, amongst many others. The market is driven by the rise in elderly people, particularly the baby boomer generation. A skin flap on each face side is pulled back during a rhytidectomy or facelift. In addition to removing extra skin, tissues beneath the skin are changed. This shapes the face to look younger.

Frequently, a facelift includes a neck lift. On the neck, it minimizes fat and sagging skin. As people age, their faces alter in appearance and structure. Skin starts to sag and doesn't recover as quickly. Some parts of the face's fat deposits decrease, while others see an increase. Some common age-related changes that can be addressed with a facelift include cheeks that appear to be sagging, the lower jawline's extra skin, and deep skin folds extending from the mouth’s corners to the nose’s sides.

Most of the demand for rhytidectomy arises in nations that are majorly known for medical tourism. Therefore, the tourism industry has a share that is out of proportion to its size. For instance, due to their robust tourism industries, tourist hotspots like Miami, Pattaya, Bangkok, and Venezuela perform disproportionately high facelift operations. More FDA approvals are fueling the growth and expansion of the rhytidectomy market. Additionally, the U.S. FDA's approval of fibrin sealants and the appearance of healing creams have further bolstered demand.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

As a result, the number of facelift procedures grew in 2021, according to a report by the Aesthetic Plastic Surgery National Data Bank. The average time spent on video conference calls increased due to remote employment. As a result, individuals focused far too much on their outward looks, because of which the market saw a boom, and this trend is anticipated to continue for some time. In addition, demand for aesthetic procedures emerged in developing nations due to the rising health and well-being consciousness. Therefore, the pandemic had a positive impact on the rhytidectomy market.

Market Growth Factors

Increasing use of advanced technology in hospitals and clinics

Increasing numbers of hospitals and clinics can now perform cosmetic operations owing to technological advancements in advanced diagnostic imaging technology. The demand for facelifts is anticipated to be driven by the development of computer-generated figures, which provide a quick perspective of the procedure on the patients. Technological developments, including magnetic resonance imaging, computed tomography, and others, simplify the surgery process. In addition, the creation of computer-generated models gives patients a quick glimpse of the procedure's results.

Social networking and the fashionable world's growing influence

The adoption of social media by youngsters is commonplace worldwide. People aim to look appealing on social networking as well as dating websites. Also, many people have had cosmetic surgery due to social media influence. Many single and divorced women and men have been choosing cosmetic surgery over the past few years. Women need to seem beautiful and are prepared to spend money to do so, especially those who are part of elite circles. In addition, some people find themselves captivated by the extravagant lifestyles of famous people and want to live like them. These elements are therefore anticipated to fuel the expansion of the rhytidectomy market during the upcoming years.

Market Restraining Factor

Occurrence of severe complications after surgery

Complications from a facelift operation are possible. While uncommon, long-term or permanent issues might alter a person's look. The most frequent facelift consequence is a hematoma or accumulation of blood under the skin. Swelling and pressure are symptoms of a hematoma. During a day of surgery, it typically forms. A facelift's incision scars are irreversible. However, the hairline and the normal outlines of the face and ear usually conceal them. As a result, incisions can occasionally leave elevated scars. Scars may look better after receiving doses of a corticosteroid drug or after undergoing other procedures.

Type Outlook

Based on type, the rhytidectomy market is categorized into full facelift and mini facelift. The mini facelift segment procured a considerable growth rate in the rhytidectomy market in 2021. The neck and lower face are lifted during mini-facelift operations. Compared to other facelift procedures, it is less time-consuming and intrusive. As a result, doctors frequently advice mini facelifts when a patient is younger and just shows mild signs of facial sagging. The procedure's effectiveness, quick recovery time, and cost-efficiency are credited for expanding the segment.

Age Group Outlook

Since face aging is more prevalent in this age group, the 55 to 69 years segment undergo facelift surgeries the most.
