Face & Neck Lift

Dr. Van Pelt and Dr. Kath perform face and neck lifts by removing excess skin and fat. From there, they tighten the underlying facial and neck muscles. Then, they reposition the skin 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 either Dr. Van Pelt or Dr. Kath. We have extensive experience with this procedure, have board-certified anesthesiologists on staff, and perform surgeries in our fully accredited facility. To learn more about face and neck lift surgery, request a consultation online or call us at (616) 464-4420.

Face & Neck Lift Procedure

Dr. Van Pelt and Dr. Kath perform face and neck lifts by removing excess skin and fat. From there, they tighten the underlying facial and neck muscles. Then, they reposition the skin 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 recovery 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.
