Facelift technique continues to evolve. There are many ways to do a facelift, and the chosen method can depend on a person’s particular anatomy as well as surgeon preference and experience. Improvements and refinements in facelift technique continue to develop. Compared to some older facelift techniques, modern facelifts can involve less surgical dissection, with less swelling, bruising, and down time, with even better results than in the past. Facelift surgery can dramatically improve jowls, midface sagging, and neck laxity. Ideally you should be a non-smoker and be in good health before having a facelift.
