Will a facelift make me look younger?

The face can be a very visible reminder that we are getting older: gravity, sun damage, lifestyle factors all combine to blur the definition and contours we associate with youth. Facial rejuvenation surgery can be an effective way of taking a few years off; it can reset, rather than stop, the clock.

What does a facelift do?

There are a variety of facelift types and techniques. One of the most popular is the mid facelift which restores volume to the cheeks by repositioning drooping muscles. This can also lessen the appearance of the nasolabial crease, and lift the jowls; the latter are further improved by a tightening of the skin and, where appropriate, liposuction. People often opt to combine a mid facelift with a blepharoplasty; also known as eyelid surgery, this procedure addresses laxity in both upper and lower lids, reducing the hooded effect. By restoring youthful volume and definition, and improving the tautness of the facial skin, a facelift can replace a tired and world-weary look with a revitalised, brighter one.
