There are numerous types of facelifts, all of which focus on correcting different parts of the face. In general terms, a facelift can correct any areas in which you have wrinkles and lines or loose, drooping skin. The most common improvements are usually done to the forehead, eyelids, cheeks, neck, and chin.
The goal of a facelift is to achieve an overall more youthful look that appears both natural and aesthetically pleasing. Facelift surgery can be personalized to the areas you are primarily concerned about and customized to address your particular signs of aging. It is important to note that age is not always a factor in patients undergoing a facelift procedure. Other concerns, such as excess or drooping skin, can occur at any age and be corrected with these operations.
