There are nowadays several types of facelifts that enable patient to improve the aging look of the face and neck either in a localized or in a more extensive way. Face surgery is used to correct sagging skin and loosening muscles in the face and neck (temples and eyebrows, cheeks, jowls, jawline, lip,…) but also the lack or excess of fat deposits.
The goal of these procedures is not to change the shape or the aspect of the face. On the contrary, it works at readjusting facial tissues that have slipped down due to aging and gravity. The restoration of the different anatomical structures of the face and neck (skin, muscle, fat) enables the patient to get a more youthful appearance, taking years off. The aim is to rejuvenate the face in a natural way, avoiding the tight faces that could be seen in the past.
