A facelift is a cosmetic surgery procedure that lifts and tightens the skin to make the face smoother. Patients request this type of surgery to tighten loose skin in the cheeks, jawline and the neck which happens as a result of ageing when facial skin loses its elasticity and volume in the soft tissues. Over time visible creases and lines begin to appear and sagging skin appears around the jowls and neck.

A facelift should never be considered as a 'one size fits all' procedure, because facial ageing affects everyone differently. It needs to be tailored as each person may require a different facelift technique.
