Where in the past faces were just lifted or pulled, nowadays we look at facelifting as sculpting and restoring lost volume. The term lifting is misleading and should instead better be called facial skin redraping.

The aim must be to reverse the anatomic effects of ageing by repositioning of the SMAS layer underneath the skin.

Some excess skin is removed but it is crucial not to remove too much as this will result in more noticeable wide and uglier scars and the tell-tale sign of a pulled fake look.

Duration: 4 Hours
