The most prominent feature of the human body is the face. However, due to over-exposure to the sun, fluctuations in weight, age, genetics and several other factors, our facial skin loosens. Wrinkles and furrows develop and the muscles of the neck, jowls and forehead weaken. A facelift can help attain a more youthful appearance by tightening facial skin and muscles and by removing excess skin.

While facelift surgery cannot stop the aging process, it may deter and offset some of its effects. It is also a way to address the effects of heredity, sun exposure and environmental issues on our faces. Used in conjunction with other procedures, a facelift can "turn back the clock," firming up muscle tone, smoothing the skin, and restoring an attractive facial contour.
