A surgeon performs a face and neck lift

Face and neck lifts are the surgical tighening of the skin to remove wrinkles. The technical name, rhytidectomy, actually means "wrinkle removal." There were 118,414 facelifts performed in the U.S. in 2007, down 12 percent from 2000. Photo: David McNew/Getty Images David McNew/Getty Images
