How Much Younger Could a Facelift Help You Look?

If Father Time has graced you with lines, wrinkles and sagging skin that you’d rather not have, it might be time to consider a facelift to restore a more youthful, energized and alert appearance. But just how much younger could a facelift make you look? Researchers seem to have pinpointed the answer.
