Facelift (product)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

A facelift is the revival of a product through cosmetic means, for example by changing its appearance while leaving its underlying engineering or design intact.

It is commonly applied to automobiles to keep models competitive during a model's product life cycle. Web sites and magazines may also be facelifted, for instance when their titles appear dated.

The term probably comes from the same term used in plastic surgery.
