The facelift helps to tighten the skin and remove some wrinkles. However, there is not a single facelift but several types of facelifts.

It can give a real boost and a lasting good-looking effect by redrawing the contours of the face. The cervicofacial lift: performed on the lower face and neck. It redefines the oval of the face and retains the skin of the neck; if necessary, it can be completed by a facelift.
The different facelifts

Lifting of the temporal region: concerns the corner of the eye, the temples, the external eyelids and the cheekbones.
Cervico-facial lifting: Concerns the neck, cheeks, jowls and nasolabial folds (wrinkles of the wings of the nose at the corner of the lips).
The mini facelift: This is the light version of the cervicofacial lift. It is less extensive and corrects the oval of the face in its first signs of slackening.
Front lift: Concerns the front.
