It depends on the structure which is under the skin, such as muscle fat and bone. All these things will be going to affect the appearance of your skin. Fatty tissue becomes thin during aging, and the indecision of muscles drops, and the bone density decreases. For changing the process of aging, a serious effort has been made by cosmetic surgeons to create a natural-looking and long-lasting look to the face.

There can be three options for the facelift procedure, depending upon the level of change required. They are a popular facelift, limited incision facelift, or a neck lift.
For a traditional facelift, the incision begins in the hairline at temples, goes around-ear, and ends in the lower scalp. The fat and underlying tissue are redistributed, whereas a lower layer of tissue and muscles are lifted. Skin is dressed over the uplifted shapes, and excess skin is shaved away. A second incision under the jaw may be required to improve an aging neck moreover. Stitchings or skin adhesives join the incisions.
If the incision is used at the temples, continued around the ear, and perhaps within the below eyelids or beneath the upper lip, it’s described as a limited incision facelift.
Neck Lift may correct sagging jowls, loose neck skin, and fat accumulation under the chin with a neck lift. The incision in the neck lift operation occurs in front of the ear lobe, and bandages around the back of the ear finishing in the lower scalp.
