A facelift is a facial plastic surgery procedure where a doctor removes excess facial fat, tightens facial muscles, and redrapes the skin of the face. These treatments result in a more youthful appearance. As we age, our skin becomes less elastic, particularly around and on the face. When loose skin on the neck or sagging skin around the jaw line becomes too unflattering or noticeable, a facelift can help. A facelift can dramatically smooth out the facial skin and improve our appearance.
