8 Types of Facelift Procedures

Are your wrinkles making you look tired, angry, annoyed or older? If so, consider getting a facelift.

Collagen production decreases as we age, causing our skin to lose its elasticity. When this happens, the skin on our face will start to sag and develop fine lines, wrinkles and age spots. Fortunately, there are various facelift procedures, both surgical and non-surgical, that can help you regain a naturally youthful appearance.


Whether you have mild to severe signs of aging, a facelift can make you look years younger by tightening the sagging skin and muscle layer of your face and neck. If you want to get a facelift, below are some procedures you should know about. Remember that each type of facelift targets a different part of your facial structure.

Brow Lift

People with forehead wrinkles and sagging eyebrows can benefit significantly from a brow lift, also called a forehead lift. The procedure removes the appearance of forehead wrinkles, improves frown lines and lifts the upper eyelids, giving you a more youthful-looking eyebrow arch and eyes.


A mid-facelift is an excellent option for people who want to restore sagging cheeks and mid-face volume loss caused by aging. The procedure diminishes nasolabial folds and lifts the cheeks, resulting in prominent cheekbones. However, it is ineffective for treating sagging skin, neck, jowls or severe wrinkles elsewhere.

Mini Facelift

A Mini Facelift is becoming increasingly popular because of its discreet incisions, rejuvenating results, minimal downtime and overall smoother recovery. It is ideal for people dealing with minor to moderate aging signs, primarily in the middle and lower face. In addition, a mini facelift improves facial wrinkles, sagging cheeks, droopy jowls, marionette lines and loose skin in the upper part of the neck.

Deep Plane Facelift

A deep plane facelift rejuvenates the face by simultaneously releasing and repositioning the SMAS (the underlying facial muscles) along with fat and skin. This cutting-edge procedure addresses most facial features, including the neck and midface. Deep plane facelifts are well known for delivering the most revitalized, natural-looking and long-lasting facelift outcomes. In contrast to a deep plane facelift, an “extended deep plane facelift” involves more extensive neck lifting.

The KalosLift Facelift

The most advanced surgical facelift currently available is the KalosLift Facelift, developed by Dr. Benjamin Stong. It combines Dr. Stong’s cutting-edge methods with the deep plane and extended deep plane facelift treatments.
