A facelift is a cosmetic surgery that lifts and tightens facial tissue to improve the signs of aging and create a refreshed, youthful look. If you look in the mirror and see wrinkles, sagging, or lax skin on your face and neck, a facelift is a comprehensive, long-lasting facial rejuvenation procedure.

Over time, your skin loses its elasticity, resulting in wrinkles, deep lines, folds, and sagging. In a facelift, facial tissue is tightened, and excess skin is removed, giving you a smoother, tighter, younger-looking face and neck. The procedure focuses on reshaping and lifting the bottom two-thirds of your face. It may be combined with other procedures such as a brow lift or forehead lift, depending on your goals and wishes.
Am I a candidate for a facelift?
Dr. Shafa always personalizes facelifts to target the precise areas of your face to achieve the desired results. Every face is different, and facelifts require great skill and artistry from a plastic surgeon to give you classic, natural-looking results that look refreshed and natural, not pulled or overly tight. If Dr. Shafa believes your goals can be achieved with a less invasive alternative, he will recommend another rejuvenation procedure, such as dermal fillers or microneedling. He does not perform facial surgery unless he believes it your best option. You may be a good candidate for a facelift if you:
- Are in your 40s or above
- Are in good physical and mental health
- Have sagging skin and creases on your face
- Have drooping cheeks around your jawline (jowls)
- Have deeply-etched smile lines or chin wrinkles
- Have loose skin and fat on your neck
