I am a 57 year old woman from Waco and I have been reading a lot about facelifts. I’m confused because I’ve heard that a traditional facelift and lower facelift are the same thing. Does this mean that the traditional facelift only treats the lower portion of the face and neck? What traditionally does the facelift address?
Facelift terminology can be very confusing. A traditional facelift does not necessarily refer to the particular procedure. A lower facelift is usually a term used to treat the jawline and neck. We usually utilize the terms cheek lift or mid-facelift for the middle portion of the face and brow lift or forehead lift for the upper portion of the face.
