Abstract

The primary purpose of the facelift is to restore the shape, volume, and contours of the youthful face. Facelift surgery has evolved over the years into multiple techniques to accomplish the same results. This article discusses the common controversies in facelift surgery and evaluates the best available evidence to guide surgical decision-making. In regard to the salient question of whether there is a “best” technique, the literature suggests that the options are generally equal in efficacy. This highlights the need for high-quality research with standardized preoperative assessment and evaluation of postoperative results to better assess outcomes.
