(better known as “facelift surgery“) is a procedure that will help turn back the clock on the aging process. While facelift surgery will not permanently stop the aging process, it will help improve the visible signs of aging on a person’s face by removing unwanted, excess fat, and tightening the underlying muscles for a more flattering, youthful look. Many patients look 15 years younger after this procedure!
