As we age, our skin loses its elasticity and becomes saggy. Facelifts were created to provide a way for patients to achieve a tighter and more youthful appearance. At Schaffer Plastic Surgery in Birmingham, AL, we can help you achieve your cosmetic goals. Here are some frequently asked questions about facelifts.
What Does a Facelift Do?
This is an outpatient procedure that is used to make men and women look younger and more rejuvenated.
