In brief: Less common now
With the advent of neurotoxins, fillers, and lasers the frequency of face lift surgery has decreased.
It is still a very common aesthetic procedure.

Facelift is a very common procedure.
It is even becoming more common in younger patients (after 40) as a mini-facelift to prevent further aging.

Facelifts are still done quite frequently.
While there is Botox and filler treatments, if what is needed is resuspension of the soft tissues, a facelift can be very powerful. Make sure you seek out a well trained and experienced surgeon.

Although there is a lot of reporting on the rising trend of non-surgical facial rejuvenation techniques in the news, surgical facelifts remain quite routine and are still performed frequently.

It is in my practice.
We perform several facelift procedures a week. Facelifts of the past were sometimes artificial looking, but today, facelifts are safer, less invasive, and require less healing time. They can be performed in an office setting and are often performed for maitenance at younger ages, rather than correction.

I do not agree the commonality of facelifting operations are more unusual even today. Also BOARDED Plastic Surgeons and Facial Plastic Surgeons offer these options!

In brief: Facelifts are common
Facelift surgery addresses loose skin in the face and neck.
There are many other procedures that can also enhance facial appearance (surgically and nonsurgically). Facelifts are common surgical procedures and are safe in the hands of a plastic surgeon.

A facelift is a very common procedure, and in my practice it is one of the more common ones that i perform. A facelift can include rejuvenation of the eyes, brow, neck and skin as well.
The best option for you is what you and your experienced plastic surgeon will agree upon. Be well and good luck.
