A facelift reduces wrinkles and sagging skin on the face and neck caused by aging or weight loss. The procedure removes excess skin, tightens the underlying muscles, and redrapes the skin in a higher position. The results go beyond what can be expected from wrinkle-fighting injections like Botox. Different types of lifts, such as cheek lifts or mini lifts, address specific concerns.

Fabulous, Fantastic Facelift at 51 - Pittsburgh, PA

I had a "lifestyle lift" four years ago at age 47. I had very little improvement in my sagging jowls and laxed skin. I was very disappointed with the results.
