With a facelift, an incision is made in the hair area of the temple extending in front of and continuing behind the ear. A small incision is also made under the chin. The skin is lifted of the face and neck, the deeper muscles are tightened, and the skin is redraped to a higher position.
This gives a more youthful appearance to the face and neck area.
Many times additional procedures such as a browlift, eyelid surgery, chemical peel, or a new skin care regimen may be desired to obtain maximum outcome.
