Facelift & Neck Lift

Has your neck started to sag? Are you noticing jowls starting to form around your face and neck? While non-surgical treatments have certainly come a long way, there is no substitute for the gold standard facelift.

Dr. Eric Carniol performs a deep-plane facelift and neck lift. This is not a “pulling” procedure. Instead, this procedure repositions those sagging cheeks, jowls, and neck tissue back to its previous, youthful location. The face and neck lift provides natural youthful volume, while also getting rid of that saggy skin. It is a beautiful, natural result.

Facelift & Neck Lift FAQs

At Carniol Plastic Surgery, we understand that deciding on a facelift or neck lift to address the signs of aging creates a lot of questions. Explore our FAQs about our facelift procedures below, and make sure to contact us to schedule your initial consultation to learn if this procedure is the right option to achieve your desired look.

In the cheek area, drooping tissues can be repositioned, restoring a youthful cheekbone structure. Along the jawline, that jowl can be smoothed and the contour of the jawline restored. Finally, in the neck, the sagging tissues are improved by fat liposuction and contouring, muscle trimming and tightening, and skin removal. Each facelift and neck lift is modified to a patient’s individual issues.

Facelift and neck lift give permanent, durable results. The procedure restores youthfulness. As you continue to age, you will continue to look good for your age.

The facelift scars are almost all concealed and heal beautifully. Under the chin, Dr. Carniol makes a small incision where about 1/3 of people have a scar from an accident as a child. From there, he trims and contours the neck fat and neck muscles to be smoother. By the ear, Dr. Carniol places the incisions within the hair line when possible. The scar also comes into the wrinkle just in front of the ear. Most patients feel comfortable with their hair up in a pony tail in a few weeks. Concerned about the scar? See our blog post on Facelift scars.

While Dr. Carniol loves performing fat grafting, he finds that this can be largely unnecessary for most of his facelift patients. As we age, the volume in our face drops. By repositioning that volume, we can give the appearance of youth without this extra procedure.
