As we age the skin on our face and neck begins to sag from a loss of muscle tone. A facelift is an operation to tighten the skin on the face, producing a firmer and smoother appearance. A facelift can correct signs of ageing in a number of places including:
- the sagging turkey neck
- the jowls of excess skin along the jawline
- the fold from the nose to the corner of the mouth (the ‘nasolabial fold’)
- the fold from the mouth to the jowl (the ‘marionette line’.
A facelift operation can reverse years of ageing by smoothing out excess skin of the neck, under the chin, along the jawline and across the cheek. Fat is removed from below the jawline and under the chin where it is unwanted but preserved and repositioned from the jowl to the cheek to restore volume where it has been lost. It leaves only faintly visible fine lines so that others will not know the reason that you ‘look so well’.
