Lower facelift surgery involves raising and repositioning the skin and soft tissue of the face. It gives the best outcomes if your face and neck have started to sag but your skin still has some elasticity and your bone structure is solid and well defined.
Sometimes only the skin above the neck is lifted (a facelift only).
Sometimes the neck muscle and the skin over it is just tightened by stitching them together (a neck lift only).
Sometimes the neck muscle and the skin over and above it are tightened and then lifted and stitched tightly to the solid structures in front of and behind the ear (a facelift and neck lift).
Excess skin is then eliminated, and the remaining skin is sewn into position.
The standard facelift helps the lower half of the face, but adjustments of the procedure can improve the upper face by lifting the outer angle of the eye and diminishing crow’s feet (also known as laughter lines).
