Face Lifts are usually performed in an accredited office facility, outpatient surgical facility or in the hospital. They may be performed under local anesthesia with or without oral sedation, conscious sedation, and general anesthesia. The surgeon usually makes incisions in front and behind the ear.

The face-lift treatment would be smart option for Men and women with jowl formation (the lower cheeks and jaw line are saggy), poorly defined jaw line and wrinkled saggy and fatty neck. Skin of the face and neck lose elasticity as one ages. Underlying muscles also lose tone. This is magnified through sun exposure, weight gain or loss, gravity and stress. These factors may act together and accentuate the appearance of wrinkles, creating a tired look.
