Introduction to Neck Lift

Gravity pulling your facial and neck skin down, and changing your look?  We can help!
Look young again with a neck lift, or lower face lift! Get rid of brow lines, crows feet, smile lines, laugh lines, lip lines, and baggy eyes!
The concept of facelifting has changed dramatically in the last ten years. The old concept of over-tightening the skin to achieve a young look is way behind us.
Much more sophisticated concepts have come into play which involve repositioning deeper tissues to a higher position and even filling hollowed areas with fat such as the upper cheeks, lower eyelids, and around the mouth. There is much less need to pull skin tight.
These surgeries provide dramatic improvement in the appearance and shape of the face, which can make someone look 20 years younger. 

Am I a Good Candidate?

  • Deep brow lines


  • Deep smile and laugh lines


  • Sagging cheeks and neck

Why Choose Dr. Friedlander?

We have replaced the big open incisions with much smaller separate incisions in key locations. This approach minimizes visible scars, allows faster healing, and gives an opportunity to reposition tissues in multiple directions to allow natural draping.
This procedure can be performed in our office under local anesthesia.

Will I have to wear a compression garment on my neck?

Yes, for the first 2 weeks, a garment is very helpful in reducing swelling.

Swelling improved greatly over the first 2 weeks, but it can take up to several months for the complete healing to occur
What is the recovery Process Like?
The recovery for these procedures is normally 10-12 days, for swelling and bruising to subside.
