Lifting and reducing heavy neck skin and fat can have a dramatic effect on the overall facial profile.  Scars are perfectly hidden behind the ears and along natural creases.

The Basics

Facelift surgery, or rhytidectomy, is a cosmetic procedure designed to rejuvenate the face by tightening sagging skin, reducing wrinkles, and smoothing deep creases. It addresses the visible signs of aging that occur as skin loses its elasticity and muscles begin to weaken. By removing excess skin and lifting underlying tissues, a facelift creates a more youthful and refreshed appearance, helping people look as young as they feel.

Who is a good candidate?

Good candidates for facelift surgery are those who are experiencing visible signs of aging and wish to reduce wrinkles, sagging, and deep facial lines. These individuals often notice a loss of skin elasticity, particularly around the cheeks, jawline, and neck. A facelift can help reverse these effects, providing a smoother, more youthful appearance and restoring a sense of vitality.
