A face lift is a cosmetic surgery procedure used to improve the appearance of aging facial skin. It is one of the most frequently performed cosmetic treatments. Face lifts are most popular among people in their forties to sixties; however, they are also appropriate for people in their seventies and eighties. A face lift is used to create a younger-looking, refreshed, and healthy face. A face lift may be performed at the same time as a forehead lift, eyelid lift, nose reshaping, and skin resurfacing treatments.
A face lift removes excess fat and sagging skin which has lost elasticity from the lower portion of the face, jaw line, and neck. It improves the appearance of wrinkles or excess skin located on the cheeks, neck, or that run from the corner of the nose to the corner of the mouth. A face lift removes or softens jowls and sagging skin on the cheeks and neck to create an angular well-defined jaw line.
