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.

63 Years Old and Delighted - Bethesda, MD

I highly recommend Dr Jabs. When I was 50, I looked carefully for a plastic surgeon to give me a facelift and nose tip revision. Unlike other doctors I talked with, he was very pleasant, attentive, caring, and he never pressured me to do anything. He really listened. Dr. Jabs told me what... READ MORE

Very Happy with my Fresh New Look! - Roseville, CA

I am turning 65 this year and noticed how much older I was looking, I hated my neck especially. I heard of Dr Arnold Almonte through a friend who had a facelift by him.

60th Birthday Gift to Me! Thank You Dr. Shah - Chicago, IL

I don't like getting older, and I certainly didn't like looking older. For me, 60 sounds old, but I love it now when people are stunned by my age.
