When someone interacts with you, the first thing they see is your face. Your skin goes through so many changes as you age because of sun damage, hormonal changes, and volume loss, which can have a detrimental effect on how you show yourself to the world. 

Facelift surgery, on the other hand, efficiently tightens drooping or sagging skin and facial muscles, improving the fullness of your face and reducing wrinkles.

Less invasive facelifts are also available now in the cosmetics market. If you have been considering this procedure for some time, but are undecided, here’s what you should know.

What Is Facelift Surgery?

A facelift is an invasive, cosmetic procedure conducted under general anesthesia where plastic surgeons will perform facial plastic surgery to reposition muscle tissue and move fat around. This will help remove unwanted skin, tighten loose skin, and lift the skin to give you a more youthful appearance.

The facelift procedure incisions begin at your temples in your hairline, so you won’t have any scars on your face.

Non-surgical facelifts are also an option for those who are afraid of going under the knife. These are conducted by a board-certified plastic surgeon or medical aesthetician. As a less invasive procedure, it can provide a noticeable “lifting” effect and help ensure minimal skin sagging, with less downtime, and impressive results that can last up to a year.
