How much younger will I look after a facelift?

A facelift or face and neck lift is a procedure that treats the lower half of the face and neck. It improves contour of the jawline improving jowling, submental fullness, lax skin, and face/neck wrinkles.

If you are wondering how many years younger you may look after a facelift, the answer is that it depends. The type of facelift performed may provide a more youthful appearance and it also depends what age you are and your anatomy at the time of the facelift.

Studies have shown and my clinical experience confirms that the majority of the time, you will appear on average about 12 years more youthful after a facelift.
