How Is a Facelift Accomplished?

Published on December 2, 2016

A facelift is perfect for restoring the taut and youthful appearance of the face. There are several ways a facelift can be performed in order to achieve the desired results.

The traditional technique for a facelift is performed by making an incision around the hairline by each ear, removing the excess fat and skin, and tightening the skin to reduce wrinkles and sagging. In many cases, the muscles are internally sutured in order to produce a tighter look.

Another facelift technique uses smaller incisions along the hairline. The fat and skin are removed, and the skin is pulled back and lifted to give the face a more youthful appearance. The post-surgical marks are concealed by the natural creases of the face.
