A Facelift is a surgical procedure for correcting the visible signs of facial and neck aging. Its purpose is to reposition underlying soft-tissues to help tighten and smoothen the skin of the lower face area, giving it a new refreshing look.
A part of the aging process, having a saggy and loose skin in the facial area, is very natural. A patient may struggle to adapt to these facial changes in older adult life, so therefore this gives them another chance of obtaining a youthful appearance and improves self-confidence.
The purpose of a facelift is to give a youthful appearance to someone who is aging quicker than expected. In this procedure, not only the skin but also the fascia tissue between the skin and the muscles, which is known as SMAS, is extended and raised what guarantees a constant stretching result.
A facelift involves an incision along the front side of the ear that extends around the back of the ear through the edge of the earlobe, creating a scar that can't be noticeable at a distance. Not only the face but also the neck and the temples are elevated too.
