As one ages, wrinkles, jowls and skin laxity in the face and neck become increasingly prominent. A facelift elevates the soft tissues of the lower half of the face and neck. This surgery is performed in the office operating suite or as an outpatient in a hospital facility. Keep in mind a facelift does not address your forehead or your eyes. Separate procedures, which if necessary may be performed at the same time, are required to improve the eyes and/or forehead.
