Mechanics of a Face Lift

Via Boing Boing, Blogger at Modern Mechanixs found this advertisement for a face lift mask from 1933:

A NEW facial harness now on the market lays claim to the ability to improve milady’s beauty. How the device is worn is illustrated in the photo at the left. Sagging chins are lifted and unbecoming wrinkles are smoothed out around the lips, cheeks and forehead, manufacturers claim. It is worn overnight, removed in morning.
Times haven't changed; we see the same propoganda but with knives and a "doctor" working the magic.
