As people age, the effects can be seen on the face. Creases begin to appear on the face, and the jaw goes slack while folds and fat form around the neck. A facelift can help to restore youth, vigor, and health to your overall appearance. Facelift surgery is a procedure that involves removing excess skin and fat from the face, tightening underlying muscle tissue, and re-draping the skin to produce a smoother and more youthful contour to the face and neck areas.
The Facelift Procedure
During the facelift procedure, an incision is made above the hairline, and the skin is separated from the underlying tissue. Excess skin and fat are removed, and the muscles beneath are tightened. The skin is then re-draped into a smoother and more youthful appearance.
The facelift procedure is usually performed on an outpatient basis under monitored intravenous sedation and generally takes several hours to complete. Most facelift patients are up and about in a day or two, but should plan on taking it easy for about a week. Stitches are generally removed approximately five days after the facelift operation. For optimal results, other procedures such as eyelid surgery and rhinoplasty are often performed in conjunction with facelift surgery.
This facial plastic surgery procedure entails a minimally invasive approach to the removal of fat from the face and neck.
Facial liposculpture is an excellent alternative for patients seeking cosmetic improvement without the invasiveness and substantial recovery period associated with full facelift, neck lift, or blepharoplasty. This facial plastic surgery procedure entails a minimally invasive approach to the removal of fat from the face and neck. Facial liposculpture can enhance the appearance of an aged face for a more slender and youthful appearance.
The Facial Liposculpture Procedure
The facial liposculpture procedure is performed through small incisions on areas of the face and neck that are in need of contouring. A thin tube called a cannula is inserted into these areas to suction out excess fat and sculpt the face and neck to improve the facial contour.
The facial liposculpture procedure takes less than an hour and is performed under local anesthesia. Because it is minimally invasive, patients are able to return to everyday activities very soon after the procedure. For more information on facial liposculpture, please contact Dr. Jon Turk today.

JawLine NeckLift (JLNL)
The Jawline Necklift or JLNL was developed by Dr. Turk to address patient’s concerns of early aging in the lower face and neck. Typically, signs of aging, including skin laxity, fat accumulation and muscle “bands”, begin in the early 50’s and are not easily treated with injections or lasers. Conversely, cosmetic injectables such as Botox, Voluma and Belotero can address many of the early signs of aging in the upper and mid-face so that aggressive full face lifting is rarely indicated any longer. In patients who are not candidates for minimally invasive facial rejuvenation (e.g. FaceTite), the JLNL is an excellent option with shorter operative times, faster healing and lower cost. The procedure takes about 2 hours to perform, can be performed under sedation anesthesia and allows return to normal activities at 7-10 days. The results are natural, subtle and long lasting and can be maintained with minimally or non-invasive technologies avoiding, in most cases, the need for additional surgery. This has encouraged patients to elect a smaller surgical procedure at a younger age (when they and their skin are healthiest) and without the pulled and “done” looks of facelifts past.
