A loss of skin tone can be attributed to a variety of factors, including gravity, heredity, stress, and environmental conditions. Regardless of why your face may no longer look as youthful as it once did, a facelift can help to restore the contours of your face and eliminate lines and wrinkles.
Note: A facelift is considered a type of restorative procedure. As such, it will not alter your fundamental appearance. It is important to understand that while a facelift can give you a more youthful appearance, it cannot stop the aging process and eventually those tell-tale signs will start to reappear.

The incisions made in a facelift will often vary based on the areas to be targeted and the desired outcome. Once the incisions have been made, the surgeon will start to separate the skin of the neck and face from the tissues and muscles deep within the skin, making it possible to redrape the neck and facial skin. The deeper layers of the face will then be lifted.
Next, your surgeon will raise the skin from the cheeks, temples, and neck, as well as lift and reposition the connective tissue. Any excess skin and fat will also be removed. Depending on the goals of the procedure, facial implants may also be used. This is usually done to increase chin or cheek volume.
At the end of the procedure, the physician will redrape the skin and close the incisions using small metal clips and/or stitches. Drainage tubes may also be inserted.
Depending on your precise goals, the procedure may take up to four hours.
