This an important question to know everything that will make the surgeon in your face. Some doctors choose to do facelift surgery with general anesthesia and others use local anesthesia. Facelift in a simple, an incision is made in one side of the face, usually from the temple to one side of the ear and then behind it.
The doctor then carefully removed the skin and tissue under the skin (subcutaneous tissue) and removes excess fat and tissue. Then, the remaining skin is pulled back and sewn in place. The same is done on the other side of the face. There are other more complicated facelifts that require more work at a deeper level of the muscles and tissues.
Likewise, to stretch the front, an incision is made near where the body begins to remove hair and jowls, an incision under the chin.
Thanks to advances in technology, now has tools that allow facelift can be done through very small incisions.
