The operation is designed to treat sagging skin and muscles of the neck and face (forehead, eyebrows, cheeks, jowls and jawline). Undermining of the skin through incisions will allow exposure and tightening of the muscles. The skin is then redraped on the new curves without excessive traction. Any excess fat can be treated by liposuction. The necessary skin incisions are for the most part hidden in the hair and around the ears. The scar is almost completely hidden.
