A facelift is an in-office cosmetic surgical procedure designed to address and correct many of these changes particularly in the neck and cheeks. A well done facelift restores the neck contour by tightening and elevating the skin of the neck. It lifts the lower cheeks substantially reducing the jowls and improving the jaw line. The 'squared-off' look, caused by the descent of the cheeks and jowls, disappears giving the face a more youthful oval contour. Often the harsh lines between the nose and the corner of the mouth soften and the upper cheeks appear fuller and younger looking.

For some people, the sagging skin of the neck is their only concern and they do not want a full facelift. A necklift is really a modified facelift, limited to the neck where only the skin of the neck is tightened and pulled up, and not the cheeks and jowls. Incisions are smaller, but as with the facelift around the ears and under the chin. If the necklift patient has noticeable vertical bands in the front of the neck, known as platysmal bands, these are reduced as part of the procedure. The surgery itself is less extensive than that of a full facelift and recovery about the same. Necklifts are particularly useful for those who have undergone previous facelifts and have a recurrence of sagging neck skin. As we do in almost all our facelifts, prior to lifting the skin of the neck, we liposuction the neck area to remove any excess fat there.

For younger patients with full necks, often we can make a dramatic change with just liposuction or liposuction with Cool Lipo alone and no cutting.
