This surgery helps your face look younger. It reduces the sagging skin and wrinkles that develop as part of the aging process. It gives your face a tighter, slimmer look.


To begin, you're given medicine to make you feel numb and relaxed. Or, you are put to sleep. There are a few options for facelift incisions. Your surgeon will use a technique that's right for your needs.


The surgeon carefully adjusts the structure of your face. Loose tissue and muscles may be tightened. Extra fat and skin may be trimmed away.

End of procedure

When the surgery is done, the incisions are closed. Your face is bandaged. You are watched for a brief time in a recovery room before going home. Follow your surgeon's instructions for a safe recovery.
