Face and Neck Lift

Age, gravity, heredity, stress, and environmental exposures can affect one’s appearance over time.  With the skin’s loss of elasticity, wrinkles and sagging of the face may occur.  A facelift, or rhytidectomy, is performed to improve one’s appearance and restore youthful contours.  Excess skin and sagging of the mid and lower face, as well as deep creases are addressed.  This procedure is often combined with a neck lift, which targets the excess fat under the chin, jowling, neck skin laxity, and the bothersome “turkey wattle.”  A facelift and/or neck lift can help one’s outward appearance match their inner youth.

At your personalized consultation, Dr. Belz will help you determine which type of facial rejuvenation procedure best suits your needs.  Incisions for a face and neck lift are typically disguised in the hairline or along the natural creases of your face and neck.

Facelift and neck lifts are performed under general anesthesia.  Swelling and bruising are common and most patients return to work two to three weeks after surgery.  It is very important to avoid strenuous activity and exercise until released by Dr. Belz.
