A facelift is a surgical procedure that removes excess fat, tightens the skin and muscles and decreases sagging around the chin and jowls. It can also repair the deep lines that appear between the mouth and nose as the individual ages. Some people choose to have a facelift done at the same time as another facial procedure, such as a nose job or forehead lift. This can often save recovery time and money. The Facelift Doctor may provide discounts on surgical fees for multiple procedures done at the same time.
Most facelifts use an incision made around the hairline, in front of the ears and ending in the hairline. This allows the doctor to lift the skin, remove excess fat and tighten the skin and underlying tissues. Some people only need a mini-facelift, which uses smaller incisions and can correct smaller problems. Surgical complications are rare, and most incisions heal nicely with very little scarring. However, some patients will notice some initial bruising and may have hair loss around the incision.
