Wondering about facial rejuvenation procedures? One extremely effective facial revitalization option is a surgical facelift. Though we’ve all heard of facelifts, most of us don’t know what they actually consist of or how they work.

During a facelift, excess skin is trimmed away from the neck and the mid and lower face areas. The muscles and fat tissue are often resculpted. The remaining skin is then stretched to make it more taught and youthful-looking. The incisions are closed using sutures, medical tape, or staples.

After an appropriate healing period, the sutures, tape, or staples will be removed, and the healing process will continue. Once the swelling has gone down, you’ll be able to appreciate your new face.
