Facelifts are performed to minimize prominent folds of skin near the chin, jaw line or neck. The procedures involve tightening (and, in some cases, removing excess) facial skin and muscles. In some procedures, fat deposits beneath the chin and neck are reduced, allowing the skin to reposition itself.
