Sun exposure, gravity, and natural deterioration in skin quality cause your face to lose its youthful tone and definition as you get older. 

Although there are many options to treat signs of aging, a facelift remains the most effective choice for comprehensive facial rejuvenation.

With the help of New York, NY, plastic surgeon Jon B. Turk, you can look years younger and feel more confident than ever.

Rejuvenate Your Appearance Through Facelift Surgery

A facelift (medically known as a rhytidectomy) is a cosmetic procedure designed to reverse the signs of aging that develop in the face. It is one of the most effective methods of facial rejuvenation, gently elevating and tightening the skin as well as the underlying soft tissues. 

A facelift accomplishes what no procedure can achieve. By targeting several layers of your facial anatomy, a facelift creates dramatic improvements and gives you more permanent results than non-surgical alternatives. 

Facelifts Are Incredibly Popular


In America, approximately 500,000 facelifts were performed from the start of 2019 to the end of 2020. So many patients seek out facelift surgery because it has the ability to powerfully combat unwanted signs of aging and provide results that typically last for over a decade.

A Stunning Transformation

Before and after facelift and blepharoplasty
Dr. Turk performed facelift surgery to flatten this New York patient's jowls and remove her excess skin to provide a rejuvenated appearance.  

Effects of A Facelift Reversing Three Major Elements of Aging 


As we age, our bodies produce less collagen, causing the skin to become thinner, looser, and less elastic. Fine lines and wrinkles will appear, especially in areas with frequent muscle contraction.

Gravity also takes a toll, causing jowls and excess skin to accumulate on the lower half of the face. During a facelift, the skin is lifted and pulled smooth, and the excess is trimmed away. 


Facial muscles can get weaker over time. The loss of muscle tone combined with looser skin can give you a droopy appearance in the cheeks and jawline. During a facelift, the muscles are tightened to reduce sagging and banding around the jawline.


The fat pads that give your cheeks definition can shift and diminish as you get older. Meanwhile, fat deposits under the chin tend to grow, creating extra fullness in the lower half of the face.

While a facelift can remove some excess fat, we often integrate liposuction and/or fat grafting into the procedure to restore definition to the cheeks and jawline.

Candidates For Facelift Surgery

Your plastic surgeon will first meet with you for a consultation at our New York City practice to determine if a facelift is right for you. To be a good candidate, you should be a non-smoker in good overall health. While there is no age limit for facelift patients, individuals with good skin elasticity tend to have the most success with the procedure.

We will also discuss your goals for treatment to ensure a facelift can realistically meet your expectations. If not, we can recommend alternative options that might be better for your needs.

Personalized Enhancement

Combining & Customizing Surgical Techniques

It is important to understand that plastic surgery is a customized process. The right facelift technique is different for each patient depending on their unique features, facial structure, and overall cosmetic goals. Your doctor will carefully assess your needs during the consultation process and develop a treatment plan that will achieve the most satisfactory results. 

In many cases, our custom facelifts include additional surgical techniques. We often combine eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty), liposuction, neck lifts, and rhinoplasty with a facelift to address other areas that might need supplementary enhancement. The goal is to achieve well-balanced results and harmony among all the aspects of your appearance. 

A Closer Look at the Procedure

Facelifts are generally performed on an outpatient basis at our New York City surgical center. The length of the facelift procedure can vary based on your custom treatment plan, but it usually takes a minimum of two to four hours. Here's what to expect:

Most of our facelift patients are placed under IV anesthesia for the procedure. You will be carefully monitored throughout the operation to ensure your safety. 


Your plastic surgeon will carefully make an incision along your hairline that extends down towards your ears. The precise length of the incision will depend on the facelift technique we have chosen for you as well as your unique facial anatomy. 

Aesthetic Modifications

Next, we'll lift the skin and tighten the underlying muscles and soft tissues. The fat pads of your cheeks will be elevated, and excess fat will be removed from your jawline. The skin will be redraped over your face, and the excess will be trimmed away. 

Neck lifts are often performed in conjunction at this step to tighten the skin around the neck.

Closing the Incisions

Once the contouring is complete, we'll close the incisions with stitches or sutures and bandage the area. We will continue to monitor you as the anesthesia wears off and then discharge you to recover in the comfort of your home. 

We Also Perform Thread Lifts To Turn Back the Clock Without Surgery

During a PDO thread lift, Dr. Turk uses dissolvable sutures to achieve the skin rejuvenation and lifting that many patients desire from facelifts. This procedure promotes the development of new collagen that helps preserve a youthful appearance. Our thread lifts are more affordable and less invasive than facelifts; however, many patients opt for facelifts due to their more transformative results. 

Facelift improvements are also significantly longer-lasting. Facelift results can be expected to last from 10 to 15 years while thread lift results last approximately eight to 12 months. Patients who do opt for a thread lift will need to repeat the procedure periodically to maintain its effects. At an in-person consultation, Dr. Turk can recommend whichever of his many procedures is the best for you.
