A facelift reduces wrinkles and sagging skin on the face and neck caused by aging or weight loss. The procedure removes excess skin, tightens the underlying muscles, and redrapes the skin in a higher position. The results go beyond what can be expected from wrinkle-fighting injections like Botox. Different types of lifts, such as cheek lifts or mini lifts, address specific concerns.

I Said "Never" but at 66, Am Having a Biltmore Lift - Asheville, NC

Wonderful Facelift with Dr. Koelliker and Beautiful Memories of San Miguel De Allende with FaceliftMexico. Celaya, MX

In a nutshell: Do this! I couldn’t be happier with the quality and value of my facelift with Dr. Koelliker and with the full concierge care package offered through Casa Marino. I would have paid twice as much at home and I can’t believe my experience would have been as comfortable and safe. My... READ MORE

58 Year Old Lecturer, Unhappy with Jowls and Saggy Neck

After a significant weight loss, when I had never felt so fit, well and happy with my figure and the joy of buying a new wardrobe, I found it was somewhat overshadowed by the toll the change had made on my face. I used to look young for my age and I now looked 58 and a tired one at that! It... READ MORE

63 and not happy with my turkey neck and droopy face

My recovery is going really well. Did not have any issues post-op, very, very little bruising, just swelling which is except for this type of surgery. I felt comfortable going out in public about 2-2.5 weeks after the surgery. I work from home so was able to go back to work after about 10... READ MORE

An Affordable ($3416 total) Exceptional Facelift - Mount Sinai Hospital, NYC

I knew I couldn't afford $30,000-$40,000 for a facelift and my surgeon who had done liposuction and upper lid blepharoplasty retired.
