Face & Neck Lift
With the natural aging process, your skin loses elasticity, which can result in wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging. While you may have energy and feel youthful, your aged appearance may tell a different story. Many women and men elect to have a neck lift combined with a face lift in our Michigan practice for complete rejuvenation of the lower face and neck. If you're looking for facial rejuvenation options, visit the experienced surgeons at Partners in Plastic Surgery of West Michigan.
Our plastic surgeons understand that every case is different and strive to give each patient a unique, one-of-a-kind experience. We have extensive experience with this procedure, have board-certified anesthesiologists on staff, and perform surgeries in our fully accredited facility.

Face & Neck Lift Procedure
A face and neck lift is performed by the surgeon removing any excess skin and fat. From there, the underlying facial and neck muscles are tightened. Then, the skin is repositioned to provide a firmer and tighter appearance. The incisions for a face and neck lift are concealed in the hairline and natural creases of your face and neck.
Some people may benefit from a mini face lift performed by one of our surgeons. This procedure provides facial rejuvenation like a traditional facelift, with the exception that it is less invasive and requires fewer incisions. It is ideal for patients who are starting to see signs of aging.
Recovery time for a face and neck lift is about 10 to 14 days. A shorter recover time is possible for patients choosing a mini face lift. While light activity may be resumed after about 2 weeks, it is important that strenuous exercise or activity be avoided until your surgeon approves.
Other surgical procedures you may want to consider for a complete freshening of your facial features include a brow lift or eyelid surgery. For women and men who are not quite ready for a facial plastic surgery procedure in Michigan, we have several nonsurgical options to choose from, including BOTOX® and injectable fillers.
