A facelift, or rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure to improve visible signs of aging in the face and neck.
The scars are hidden in the hairline and natural skin folds or curves.
Care is taken to avoid an unnatural appearance of the ears or earlobe after a facelift.
A neck lift is typically performed at the same time as a facelift.
Contouring of the neck to remove extra fat is done by liposuction and as needed through a hidden incision under the chin.
Your individual needs are what determines the type of procedure that is done.
