Face lift surgery gives the face a more youthful appearance. It provides one of the most dramatic improvements in the area of facial rejuvenation. It reshapes the mid and lower face and neck by removing extra facial skin and by repositioning deeper tissues in the face and neck. This restores the shape and balance of a youthful face.
The surgeon makes an incision around the ear. The surgeon then lifts the skin off the deeper facial muscles and fat. The skin is gently pulled into a more youthful position. Extra skin is removed. The deeper tissues of the face are also tightened. Fat from the patient can also be injected in strategic areas to round and soften certain parts of the face that have lost volume and shape.
