Face Lift

How is a Facelift Performed?

During a facelift, the skin and muscles are tightened to improve the appearance of the eyes, cheeks, jowl, and neck. These improvements are achieved by first placing inconspicuous incisions around the ear and hairline. The skin and facial muscles are then lifted and tightened to restore the natural contours that contribute to a more youthful appearance. Excess skin can be removed around the incision lines as needed to help smooth out your facial skin. If the neck needs tightening, a small incision may also be made under the chin, and excess fat may be removed. The incisions typically heal as inconspicuous hairline scars. A facelift is most frequently performed using general or twilight anesthesia.
