A facelift is a surgical procedure that restores youthfulness to the face by correcting visible signs of aging such as sagging skin and wrinkles. Discreet incisions are made in the hairline and in front of the ear in order to gently lift the skin on the cheek and neck and place it in a higher position. The underlying supporting tissues are also tightened. It’s really the “true correction” of the loosening skin – the true replacing of the tissues to the position where they used to be. A facelift is designed to restore balance and harmony to your face and to allow you to look your most beautiful at any age.
Combine with laser resurfacing to increase skin texture or blepharoplasty to improve the appearance of the eyelids.
