Fat is lost during the aging process, leaving the cheeks looking hollow. Jowls come about as a result of fat and muscle tissue shifting and drooping. Facelift surgery can be employed to correct these facial issues, causing the face to look more youthful.

As part of facelift surgery, fat is sometimes shifted to new areas, and excess fat can be removed using liposuction. Jowls can be corrected through this process, as can hollow cheek areas. Additionally, facelifts can be used to trim away excess skin, removing facial creases.

These additional techniques are a far cry from the outdated “skin-only” approach to facelifts and provide more natural-looking and longer-lasting results.
