Male Voice: There are different types of facelifts and there is one called a short scar mini facelift and that is just the excision right on the ear. That takes care of jowls only and that doesn't take very long to do. That maybe a woman or a man say in their early 40s for instance who just wants a little kind of touch up and that type of facelift is less than a week of downtime.

A longer facelift which also involves the neck, that's the longer one and the bigger one, but that's usually someone who is in their 50s per say, but everyone is different and everyone's age is different. So if they have a fair amount of jowling or sagging and they look kind of sad and they have neck bands, then a full lower facelift would be the correct procedure for them.
