The facelift is still the supreme discipline of plastic and aesthetic surgery and the procedure by which all others must be measured. It requires a high level of expertise. Used correctly, it turns the clock back ten to fifteen years: the condition, i.e. the appearance, is restored to the state it was in at the time. This aesthetic gain is permanent.
What happens when you are no longer 20? Then the tissue starts to sag, following the force of gravity. This also happens to the forehead: it sinks, and with it the brows. This changes the whole face and appearance.
