A facelift is a surgica l procedure of the face that removes excess skin that is caused by aging or significant weight loss. The skin usually loosens which results in a loss of muscle tone and firmness. Therefore a facelift is performed to eliminate excess skin achieving a younger looking and well-rested face. This surgery could be done in congestion with neck lift, brow lift and/or blepharoplasty (eyelid lift) to achieve optimal results.
