What is a Facelift?

A facelift is a procedure that works specifically with the skin on the face with the aim of reducing wrinkles and giving the patient a more youthful appearance. The technique aims to remove excess skin from the face and then stretch the existing skin to cover that area, in turn the wrinkles are essentially stretched out and disappear from the face. Small incisions are made in front of the ear and under the hairline to keep visible scarring to a minimum.
