A facelift is popular among patients where the aging process has lead to the formation of face fine lines and wrinkles. Through a facelift the motion vector of the face will be directed towards the cheek bone and the ear area and will no longer be pulled downwards through gravitational forces. The incision of the face lift surgery are therefore made and hidden in front of and behind the ear. During this procedure, sagged muscles are tightened and re-suspended in front of the ear and on the cheek bone, leading to a stable and long term effect and result. Alternatively, when the neck and areas beneath the chin are not affected, and the target areas are only those around the nose, eyes and corners of the mouth, the surgeon can perform a mid face lift. This procedure can be combined with a lower eyelid lift since the surgical incisions are simple, small and with no considerable scar formation risk. It is of great importance that the performing surgeon has received a microsurgical training. The surgeon should also have experience concerning nerve reconstruction procedures after nerve damage and paralysis so that the patient is protected during the operation from possible nerve damage and trauma. The nerves of the face are responsible for the mimic and face expressions which through a face lift are emphasized.
