For those seeking physical enhancement and a younger looking appearance, a facelift can dramatically improve sagging or loose facial skin. Factors such as overexposure to the sun, gravity, smoking and aging can all affect your facial and neck appearance. A facelift can help improve your facial features by removing excess skin and tightening the underlying facial muscles.
