As a restorative surgery, a facelift does not change your fundamental appearance and cannot stop the aging process. A facelift can only be performed surgically. Where a non-surgical rejuvenation treatment cannot achieve the same results it may help delay the time at which a facelift becomes appropriate and complement the results of surgery.

Medications are administered for your comfort during the procedure. Your choices include intravenous sedation and general anesthesia.
- Incision often begins in the hairline at the temples, continues around the ear and ends in the lower scalp. Fat may be sculpted or redistributed from the face, jowls and neck, and underlying tissue is re-positioned, commonly the deeper layers of the face and the muscles are also lifted. Skin is re-draped over the uplifted contours and excess skin is trimmed away.
- Limited incision: An alternative to a traditional facelift uses shorter incisions at the temples, continuing around the ear and possibly within the lower eyelids.
- Neck lift incision: Sagging jowls, loose neck skin and fat accumulation under the chin may be corrected with a neck lift. A neck lift incision often begins in front of the ear lobe and wraps around behind the ear ending in the lower scalp.
