A facelift is a surgical procedure designed to eliminate face and neck wrinkles simultaneously, thereby rejuvenating the skin and restoring a youthful appearance. Exposure to the sun, weight fluctuation and the natural aging process makes skin loosen and sag, resulting in wrinkles and jowls. The muscles on the neck can slacken and cause one to look years older than they are. A facelift procedure can provide fresh, taut skin making you look decades younger.
A facelift begins with incisions along the hairline, by the ear, on the chin, or along the earlobe. These carefully placed incisions leave no visible scars. Next, excess skin is lifted and removed. The remaining skin is then smoothened, tightened and secured.
Side effects may include swelling, numbness, bruising, and tightness, but most patients report little pain and only minor discomfort.
