Facelift & Neck Lift

Every year that passes takes a toll on your skin. Sun exposure, severe weather, and gravity can all contribute to noticeable signs of aging on your face and neck. Surgical facelift and neck lift are effective ways to help you restore and rejuvenate your youthful appearance.

A face lift can improve your facial appearance by eliminating or significantly reducing:

  • Sagging skin around your mid-face
  • Excess skin and fat beneath your chin
  • Jowls along your jaw
  • Deep folds that extend from the corners of your mouth to your nose

Facelift and Neck Lift in Nanaimo and Victoria

Facelift and neck lift can be standalone procedures and they may also be combined and performed at the same time for a more comprehensive rejuvenation. Combined facelift and neck lift are recommended for those with significant signs of aging in the face and neck, such as sagging skin, deep wrinkles, and jowls.

  • Facelift
    Removes excess skin, tightens underlying muscles, and re-drapes the skin to smooth wrinkles and sagging. Facelift on its own is suitable for those with good skin elasticity and mild to moderate signs of aging in the face.
  • Neck lift
    Removes excess skin and fat, tightens underlying muscles, and contours the jawline and neck.

Questions & Answers

Who is a good candidate for a facelift or neck lift?

Ideal candidates for a facelift or neck lift are individuals who have visible signs of aging, such as sagging skin, deep wrinkles, or loose skin in the neck or jowls. Candidates should be in good overall health and have realistic expectations about the results of the surgery.

How is a facelift or neck lift performed?

During a facelift or neck lift procedure, incisions are made in discreet areas, and excess skin and fat are removed or repositioned. The underlying muscles may also be tightened, and the remaining skin is lifted and re-draped to achieve a more youthful appearance.

What is the recovery process like for a facelift or neck lift?

Recovery time varies for each patient, but most individuals can return to work and normal activities after 1-2 weeks. Swelling and bruising are common, but these should subside within a few weeks.

How long do the results of a facelift or neck lift last?

The results of a facelift or neck lift can last anywhere from 5-10 years, depending on factors such as the patient’s age, skin quality, and lifestyle habits. However, it is important to note that the aging process will continue after the surgery, and maintenance procedures may be needed to maintain the results.
