As people age, the effects of gravity, exposure to the sun, and the stresses of daily life can be seen in their faces. Deep creases form between the nose and mouth; the jawline grows slack and jowly; folds and fat deposits appear around the neck.
A facelift is a surgical procedure that removes excess fat, tightening the underlying muscles, and redraping the skin of your face and neck. A facelift can be performed alone, or in conjunction with other procedures (forehead lift, eyelid surgery, nose reshaping). The facelift can improve the most visible signs of aging, making one look fresher and younger.
