Facelift surgery is done to lift and firm sagging facial tissues, remove wrinkles and restore one’s youthful appearance. Excess sagging skin is removed, underlying tissues and muscles are tightened, and deep folds are smoothed. It can correct jowls, double chins, midface sagging and marionette lines.

Anaesthesia is generally used during the surgery. Following the procedure, patients generally return to normal activity after two weeks, though strenuous exercise can be done after four. Bruising and swelling are common immediately following a facelift.

A facelift can efficiently recontour the neck and jawline, last ten or more years and make a patient appear ten to fifteen years younger.
