What is Facelift?
Facial rejuvenation or facelift is a procedure that involves tightening the face. The face with aging, droops and people develop jowls and wrinkle especially in the lower part of the face and the neck.
As the tissues sag typically for people in their 40s 50s and 60's this creates excess skin and also distorts the jawline and makes patients look older. By rejuvenation we basically tighten all these tissues that sag, and so facelift is what we do.
How long does a facelift last?
These facelifts last between 8-10 years. It is a procedure that involves both tightening of the muscle as well as the skin.
Are there other techniques for facelifts?
