As people grow older, the skin of the face and neck begin to wrinkle and sag and a growing number are taking the step to rejuvenate and enhance their appearance by having a facelift or necklift. Sun exposure, smoking and genetic influences can all contribute to the aging process. A facelift / necklift can correct these conditions and give men and women a more youthful appearance by removing excess skin and fat, tightening muscles and re-draping skin with discreet scarring. Rejuvenating the face is not about pulling it tight but restoring the anatomy and replacing the natural volume that is lost through ageing.
