The term facelift can be confusing. It can generally mean lifting anything from the brow and cheeks to the neck. However, most surgeons now differentiate the terms used for lifting regions of the face into brow lifts, cheek or midface lifts and facelifts which is synonymous with what we refer to as a lower facelift. A facelift in our practice therefore is focused on the lower 1/3 of the face. This includes everything on or below a line from the corner of the mouth to the upper part of the ear. This includes the jawline, jowls, marionette lines and neck. A facelift is performed through variations of incisions placed around the ear and hair and sometimes under the chin. There are many different degrees of facelifting that can be performed and each patient receives a detailed consultation to determine which degree of lift is appropriate for them.
