Face Lift & Neck Lift
We all want to look our best. Having a youthful face is often the key to an attractive appearance -but time, gravity, stress, and the elements are constantly working against us. The results can be seen on your face in the form of wrinkles, sagging skin, jowls, or a "turkey wattle" neck. It's so easy to improve these flaws with a neck or face lift in New York.
Women and men all over the Tarrytown, Goshen, and Tri-State areas have discovered that facelift from the New York Group for Plastic Surgery can help them look as good as they feel.

Improvements from Neck and Face Lift in New York
Facelift cosmetic surgery, technically called rhytidectomy, improves the lower face by tightening facial muscles and removing fat tissue and excess skin, while a neck lift defines the jaw line and smoothes the neck. Our New York face lift patients, usually in their 40s to 60s, choose facial enhancement for many personal reasons, which often include:
- Correcting deep wrinkles in the cheeks
- Smoothing deep marionette lines (the fold of skin that runs from the nose to the corner of the mouth)
- Tightening loose skin and muscles, and removing excess fat from the neck
- Achieving a well-defined jaw line
These procedures are usually performed together, but some patients can achieve their desired results with only a neck or face lift. Your surgeon will help you decide what is best for you at your personal consultation in our New York office. Be sure to review our gallery of before-and-after photos to see the results of some of our actual face lift and neck lift patients.
Only the Beginning
Our patients often combine neck lift and facelift in our New York offices with other facial surgery procedures like eyelid surgery and brow lift for a more comprehensive facial enhancement. Some patients also choose facial implants to build up an area of their face, such as receding chin or to define their cheekbones. They also choose from non-surgical procedures such as injectable fillers and resurfacing options.
For less severe cases of loose, sagging skin your surgeon might recommend you try BOTOX® Cosmetic injections or facial fillers such as Restylane®, Radiesse®, or JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel from our on-site medical spa. New York women and men have delayed cosmetic surgery for years with these effective, temporary non-surgical solutions.
What to Expect
Your facelift and neck lift surgery is performed - either under heavy sedation or general anesthesia - in our on-site, outpatient facility. Because this procedure requires extreme precision, it can take your surgeon several hours to complete. Additional procedures will increase the length of your surgery. You will need someone to drive you home and help you out for a few days afterwards.
Your recovery time will depend on the extent of your surgery. You should expect to have bruising, swelling, and stiff facial movements for the first few weeks, after which your improvements should gradually be revealed. Most patients are able to return to light activity, including work, after about 2 weeks, and resume more strenuous activity a few weeks later. To promote proper healing, you should limit sun exposure for several months.
The improvements from face lift surgery are long lasting, from 5 to 10 years. However, it can't stop the aging process or affect contributing factors. When approached with realistic expectations about the improvements face lift and neck lift surgery can provide, our New York patients are usually quite pleased with their results. Our surgeons are proud to produce natural-looking results. The only thing your friends will notice is a more youthful, refreshed looking you.
