Facelift has always been a very popular plastic surgery procedure, and has been steadily growing in popularity among men. A facelift mostly affects the lower portion of the face from the cheeks and jowls to the neck. Incisions are typically made behind the ears and under the chin to remove skin and fat deposits and to tight certain muscles creating youthful contours and taught skin.

Incisions are usually made behind the hairline to reduce visible scarring. It is very important to avoid direct sun exposure for many months after surgery and to use sunscreen at all times.
