how it’s done: Under a general anesthetic, the surgeon makes incisions in and around the ear to work at eliminating the jowl area and lifting up the folds of fat around the nose. The procedure “airbrushes away the marionette lines around the mouth as well “says L.A plastic surgeon Randal Haworth M.D.

younger and rejuvenated, and the overall effects is just as dramatic as a
regular facelift but simpler to perform.
cons: Temporary swelling, numbness and bruising.
recovery: One to two weeks.
staying power: seven to 12 years
cost: 10,000 to 14,000.
