A facelift is a common type of cosmetic surgery that involves improving visual signs of aging in your face and neck.
People usually get facelifts to improve signs of aging and have a more youthful appearance. This may help increase your confidence and self-esteem.
Facelifts generally involve repositioning and/or removing facial skin and/or fat and tightening facial muscles. Depending on the type of facelift you’re getting, your surgeon may just do one of these actions or all of them. You and your surgeon will discuss the process in detail before your surgery.
