Facial cosmetic surgery may include a forehead lift. In this procedure, a hairline incision is made, the forehead skin is pulled-up and excess skin tissue is removed. In an eyelid lift (blepharoplasty), creases and wrinkles around the eyes can be minimized by removing excess fat and skin from the upper and lower eyelids. A facelift usually consists of an incision along or above the hairline and in front of the ears. Excess fat and skin is removed and facial muscles may be tightened.
