Restore outer beauty to
match your inner youthfulness
As we age, our faces and necks naturally start to sag, the skin stretches, and our skeletons shrink. Face and neck lifts can achieve significant improvement in the appearance of sagging skin. Both Dr. Eric Carniol and Dr. Paul Carniol are double board-certified facial plastic surgeons who bring tremendous experience and expertise to performing facelifts and neck lifts in Summit, NJ.
Combat Signs of Aging
A facelift is a surgical procedure that is performed to improve the appearance of sagging skin on the face and neck. The procedure involves making incisions in front of the ear (hidden in a little crease), the scalp, and behind the ears. Dr. Carniol then lifts and repositions the underlying tissues, removes excess skin, and tightens the muscles.
A neck lift is a surgical procedure that is performed to improve the appearance of sagging skin on the neck. The procedure involves making an incision under the chin and along the sides of the neck. The surgeon then removes excess skin and tightens the underlying muscles.
Facelifts and neck lifts can be performed together or separately, depending on the individual’s needs.
What to Expect
The procedures are typically performed under general anesthesia and can take several hours to complete. Patients can usually go home the same day as the procedure, but they will need to wear a compression garment for several weeks.
Facelifts and neck lifts can provide significant improvement in the appearance of sagging skin. However, it is important to remember that these procedures are not a cure for aging. The results of a facelift or neck lift will not last forever, and the skin will continue to age over time.
If you are considering a facelift or neck lift, it is important to discuss the procedure with a qualified plastic surgeon. The surgeon will be able to assess your individual needs and goals and will help you decide if a facelift or neck lift is right for you.
A facelift or neck lift may be a good option for people who are bothered by the appearance of sagging skin on their face and neck. The procedure may also be a good option for people who have lost volume in their face and neck due to aging.
The risks of a facelift or neck lift include bleeding, infection, and scarring. In rare cases, the procedure can also lead to more serious complications, such as nerve damage and facial asymmetry.
The recovery time for a facelift or neck lift is typically two to four weeks. During the recovery period, patients will need to wear a compression garment and avoid strenuous activity.
The cost of a facelift or neck lift varies depending on the surgeon’s fees and the complexity of the procedure. The procedure typically costs several thousand dollars.
