To attain facial rejuvenation, individuals regularly turn to plastic surgery, such as a facelift or a brow lift. Although both of these procedures can restore a youthful look, they focus on completely different areas of the face.


Facelift surgery is one of the most common cosmetic procedures in plastic surgery for those 55 years and older, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS). A standard facelift corrects signs of aging to the cheeks, jowls, and neck. It is performed by excising excess skin and fat from the face and tightening the remaining skin to attain natural-looking results. This method of treatment addresses the lower third of the face to lift the cheeks to a higher position, smooth the jaw line, and contour the neck.

Brow Lift

Brow lift surgery is another popular procedure that many individuals in their 40s to 60s undergo every year. The surgeon removes drooping skin and fat deposits from the upper eye area, which provides patients with a more youthful and “alert” appearance. A brow lift is intended to elevate the brow, reduce frown lines, and improve horizontal forehead wrinkles.
