Well there are many procedures; the main procedure is SMAS (Superficial Musculoaponeurotic System). First of all you are given anaesthetic sedation, may be local or general, so as to prevent you from pain of the scissors.
Incisions are made near your ears and the skin is lifted to smoothen the underlying muscle tissues. The surgeon may need to fix them with sutures, if he feels it to be needed. Also some fat tissues may be removed, by liposuction technique, to give a fine and good look.
Then the lifted skin is again draped on the face and is pulled backward and upward, behind the ears and finally it is stitched along the hairline. And it is done!! There is no worry about the stiches as they will go deeper inside the skin and may disappear. Sometimes the surgeon may leave some gap between the stiches to release some blood, but after wards it will heal off soon.
