A facelift (technically known as rhytidectomy) can't stop the aging process. What it can do is "set back the clock," improving the most visible signs of aging by removing excess fat, tightening underlying muscles, and redraping the skin of your face and neck.
You'll have some scars from your facelift, but they're usually hidden by your hair or in the natural creases of your face and ears. In any case, they'll fade within time and should be scarcely visible.
Facial implants help change the basic structure of the face to give a fuller, more balanced look.
Always consult the doctor regarding the specific medications that you are taking, including aspirin.
Some of the implant materials are made of a solid silicone. Currently, there is no scientific evidence that this is a harmful substance.
