A facelift, also known as meloplasty, is a cosmetic plastic surgery procedure aimed at rejuvenating the face, cheeks, and jowls.
Facelifts can be combined with other procedures such as eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty), brow lifts, and neck lifts. It all depends on what a patient needs to produce full facial rejuvenation and improve signs of ageing on the neck and face.
As we age, the face undergoes several changes – nobody can escape the natural ageing process. These include the loss of volume in the upper and mid-face and descent of the soft tissues of the face.
