Many reasons such as aging, the effect of gravity, intense exposure to sunlight, unhealthy diet can cause loss of facial elasticity and facial sagging. With genetic factors such as environmental factors, signs of aging can be seen on the face over time and a solution such as face lift surgery may be needed. When the skin loses its elasticity, it becomes looser and facial sagging becomes inevitable. Another reason that leads to facial aesthetics is the occurrence of depressions due to the decrease in fat in some parts of the face or the deterioration of symmetry with its increase. This imbalance in the adipose tissue is corrected during facelift surgery.
