Facelift, or facial rejuvenation surgery, is a procedure that corrects the most visible signs of ageing of the face, by tightening the facial muscles, reducing fat, redistributing skin and removing excess tissue. A full facelift reduces sagging and restructures the damaged areas of the face. This operation is usually performed through incisions inside the hairline and behind the earlobe, continuing to the neck if necessary, so that scars are hidden. Depending on the areas of the face that you wish to treat, there are several types of facelift: forehead lift, which raises drooping eyebrows and eliminates forehead wrinkles, medium lift, which removes the accumulated fat in the cheeks and raises the cheeks; and a lift which reduces the fat around the jaw and neck (e.g double chin).
A facelift is one of the most common types of cosmetic surgery, performed to restore a youthful appearance to the face. It is typically performed on the lower third of the face by surgically removing excess skin, smoothing skin, improving the line of the jaw, and removing deep wrinkles.
