Sagging skin and deep wrinkles are caused by genetics, gravity, sun exposure, and stress. These unwanted developments alter the shape of your face and contribute to a prematurely aged and tired facial complexion.
If time and the elements have caused your facial skin to sag, facelift with a neck lift from Gallas Plastic Surgery can help reverse the effects and restore a more youthful and refreshed face and neck.Schedule A Consultation
Am I A Candidate for A Facelift With Neck Lift?
Facelift with neck lift is performed to tighten loose facial skin in order to rejuvenate and restore a younger appearance. These techniques reduce wrinkles and sagging skin on the face and neck, including jowls, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, neck banding, and hollowed features.
Facelift with neck lift surgery is ideal for individuals who do not smoke, are in good health, have no medical conditions that can affect healing, retain skin elasticity, and have realistic expectations of their results.
There is no designated age for a facelift with neck lift. Patients range from their 30s to their 70s.
Combining facelift with neck lift surgery:
- Maintains the balance between the face and neck
- Restores a refreshed, rested, and more youthful complexion
- Improves the lower two-thirds of the face and neck
- Is ideal for both men and women

How Is Facelift With Neck Lift Performed?
Facelift with neck lift surgery is an outpatient procedure performed under general anesthesia. Patients will be able to return home shortly after their surgery.
Dr. Gallas performs the most advanced, state-of-the-art facial plastic surgery techniques to tighten and tone the skin in a harmonious and natural-looking way.
Incisions for a facelift with neck lift run around the ear and extend into the hairline at the temples. Occasionally, an additional incision is made beneath the chin to address laxity on the neck. These incisions are placed in the natural folds of the skin or within the hairline to minimize post-surgical scarring.
The deep, underlying connective tissues of the face (SMAS layer) are gently tightened, restoring neck muscles and facial fat to their proper placement and elevation. Excess skin is trimmed along the incision lines, and the incisions are closed.
This surgical procedure addresses tissue laxity on the lower two-thirds of the face—from the cheeks to the jawline—and the neck.
Liposuction of the neck can be used in addition to facelift with neck lift surgery to remove fat deposits on the neck and under the chin for a sleeker, more slender appearance. Additionally, fat grafting can be used to replenish fullness and restore contour to the face.
What Will My Facelift With Neck Lift Recovery Be Like?
Your incisions will be wrapped after your facelift for protection and to facilitate the healing process. Patients will experience bruising, swelling, tenderness, and soreness that will peak between the second and third day of your facelift recovery.
You should rest and sleep with your head in an upright position, and you can shower and wash your hair the day after surgery.
Most patients return to work and their regular activities within one to two weeks, but vigorous exercise should be avoided for four to six weeks.
How Much Does Facelift Surgery Cost?
Facelift surgery is customized to you, and the cost of the procedure will reflect that personalization. Dr. Gallas will provide you with a cost estimate during your consultation once he has finalized your surgical plan. This estimate will include anesthesia and facility fees, as well as surgeon’s fees and includes all post-operative follow up.
When Will I See My Facelift With Neck Lift Results?
You will begin to see tighter, more youthful skin immediately following your facelift with neck lift, and the results will continue to improve over the following weeks and months as the bruising and swelling subside.
The results of your facelift will be long lasting, but this procedure will not stop the aging process. While you will eventually display additional signs of aging, you will always look more youthful than if you did not have the surgery.
You can help prolong the quality of your facelift results by staying out of the sun, wearing a broad-spectrum SPF sunscreen, applying moisturizers, following a healthy lifestyle, and maintaining a stable weight. It is always a good idea to follow a healthy skin care program to optimize your surgical results.
