A facelift is one of the most iconic plastic surgery procedures. Moreover, the tightening of sagging skin is one of the most desired aesthetic treatments in the world. In this article we will take you through the basics of the surgery and the different types of lifting with a special focus on Korean plastic surgery at ID Hospital.
What happens during a facelift?
The basic facelift improves the appearance of deep wrinkles by removing sagging tissue. This is usually done through incisions in front of the ears. The effects of lifting are permanent so it’s a popular procedure among older women and men.
Who benefits from a facelift?
Primarily, anyone who has sagging facial skin, deep wrinkles or both will get the most out of any kind of lifting. And you’d be surprised how many types of facelift are on offer.

What kinds of facelift are there?
– V3 Lifting
V3 lifting is a new type of lifting surgery developed here at ID Hospital. Its purpose is to restore the V-line of the chin and jaw. As we age the muscle and skin on our cheeks and neck can begin to sag, creating a double chin or sunken jowls. Therefore, ID Hospital’s V3 lifting focuses on these areas of the middle and lower face to restore a petite and beautiful jawline. You can read more about V3 lifting here.
– Full Facelift
This surgery targets signs of aging on the whole face, from the smile lines to the jowls to neck wrinkles. The incision site is in front of the ear to minimize visual scaring. This is a permanent procedure with a strong lifting effect. Overnight hospitalization is not required. You can read more about full facelift here.
– Volume Mini Facelift
The volume mini facelift may be for you if you’re worried about scarring or recovery time. With this surgery an incision is made behind the tragus of the ear, hiding the vast majority of surgical scarring. In addition, to create a tight jawline, we treat the jaw with mini liposuction.
