A facelift (technically known as rhytidectomy) can't stop this aging process. What it can do is "set back the clock," improving the most visible signs of aging by removing excess fat, tightening underlying muscles, and redraping the skin of your face and neck.
A facelift can be done alone, or in conjunction with other procedures such as a forehead lift, eyelid surgery, or nose reshaping. This a surgical procedure to improve sagging facial skin, jowls and neck skin by removing excess fat, tightening muscles, redraping skin. This procedure is most often done on women and men over 40.
