The modern facelift has changed significantly from that performed in the 1960′s. The facelift with a “windblown” look and that needs to be “redone” every few years is a thing of the past.

A SMAS facelift works well to give a more defined jawline and eliminate jowls. It is often combined with a brow lift to rejuvenate the eyebrows and forehead, with submental (under the chin) liposuction to improve the angle under the chin or with a midface lift.

The facelift is performed through an incision that begins in the scalp of the temple, wraps around the front of the ear, behind the earlobe, along the back surface of the ear and then sometimes extends into the scalp behind the ear.
