A Facelift is an aesthetic surgery to tighten the muscles and remove loose facial skin, which restores the contours of the face to make it look younger.
Facelifting is also the basis for all other aesthetic surgeries on the face and can be combined with other surgical procedures in that region.
Face lift and neck lift surgeries are most often performed together, under general or locally potentiated anesthesia.
The duration of the operation is about three hours. The procedure involves tightening of the subcutaneous muscle-apneurotic layer of the face and neck (tightening of the SMAS and platysma) and excision of the excess skin of the face and neck.
