Over time, the long-term effects of gravity, exposure to sun, dry air, and general stress takes its toll on our faces. Deep creases appear beside the mouth, the jaw line loses contour, and folds and fat deposits appear on the neck. A facelift can considerably reduce these signs of aging by removing excess fat, tightening the underlying muscles, and redraping the skin around the neck and face.
Facelifts can be done as a single procedure, or frequently performed in conjunction with another procedure such as a browlift, upper and lower eyelid surgery, midface lift and fat grafting.

Upper lid surgery can be performed in the office and usually takes only about 1 hour.
Lower Eyelid surgery is more complex surgery and can be done in a surgical setting, taking about 90 minutes. Blepharoplasty can be done as a single procedure, or in conjunction with other facial surgery such as a facelift or a browlift.
