Beauty requires sacrifices, especially for women. For most of us, aging is a scary topic, as we try to stop time and even reverse it using anti-aging cosmetic products and facial treatments.

During facelift surgery, the skin on every side of the face is pulled back, which gives the face a more youthful shape. There are more types of facelifts, depending on your needs: mini-facelift, mid-facelift, deep plane Rhytidectomy, silhouette install ft, and neck liposuction.
