Facelifts range in size from “mini” to “standard” depending on the location and the extent of skin laxity. A facelift usually takes several hours. Incisions are made within the hairline (or along the hair margin) above the ear, extending down around the ear lobe and ending in or below the hairline behind the ear. The subcutaneous layers and neck muscles are tightened, fat may be trimmed or repositioned, facial skin is re-draped and lifted, and excess skin is removed. A facelift can smooth out wrinkles, improve facial and neck contours and give a more rested and youthful appearance. Having a facelift does not “stop the clock,” as your face will continue to age with time. However, you will realistically look 5 to 10 years younger.
