If you notice your jaw and chin losing definition and your facial skin starting to sag, you might consider a facelift to improve these issues. When your face consistently looks drawn, saggy, and tired, your self-esteem can falter, making you uncomfortable in social situations.

A facelift improves these issues, and unlike some nonsurgical rejuvenation procedures, your results will last for many years. A facelift primarily addresses laxity in the mid and lower face. Still, it can also be combined with eyelid surgery, a brow lift, and other facial procedures to comprehensively rejuvenate your appearance.

Let’s take a look at some of our patients’ facelift before and after photos, so you can get an idea of the type of results that are possible—both as a standalone surgery and in combination with other rejuvenation procedures.

Facelift Before & After Case 190

This patient needed a revision facelift to keep her face looking smooth and vibrant. We also performed CO2 laser skin resurfacing as the skin on her face and neck had a crepey appearance. After her facelift, her skin looks taut with more definition along her jaw. Her neck area also got a reset, with firmer skin and fewer wrinkles. She looks several years younger—but still like herself!—after her facelift procedure.

Facelift Before & After Case 191

This lovely patient has a youthful energy but was experiencing skin laxity and sagging in her mid-face. After her facelift, her face looks more alert and lively. We also performed blepharoplasty (eyelid lift) and CO2 laser skin resurfacing, making her lovely eyes more prominent and her skin more robust to emphasize her renewed vitality.

This lovely lady was unhappy with the sagging skin on her cheeks, jowls, and neck. Her facelift improved that skin laxity, making her face look more youthful and emphasizing her delicate features.

Facelift Before & After Case 345

Our patient wanted to look more rested and improve the sagging skin around her eyes and forehead. Her facelift, combined with blepharoplasty, forehead lift, and CO2 laser skin resurfacing, rejuvenated her face to make her look more naturally alert, vital, and more like she did a decade earlier.
