Face & Neck Lift

The face is the most identifiable part of a person, and unfortunately is particularly susceptible to the aging process. This is evident in the development of jowls, folds and creases across the face, and banding along the neck that leads to a tired, sad, or worried look. To reverse these we provide the best facelift in Somerset County, New Jersey.

What are my facelift options?

What are the types of face and neck lifts?

Full Facelift

A full facelift, or deep-plane facelift, reverses age-related changes on the midface, cheeks, jawline, and neck by lifting the underlying muscles and fat of the face without stretching the skin unnaturally. Dr. Ramesh makes strategic incisions around the ears and along the hairline to trim away excess skin, remove unwanted fat tissues, and lift and tighten the underlying SMAS layer, which connects the muscles in the face. As such, a full facelift makes your skin look smoother, tighter, and younger, rolling back the clock by a decade or more.

Mini Facelift

A mini facelift is a modified version of the traditional deep-plane facelift, suitable for patients with early signs of aging or those desiring a minimal recovery period. This procedure also lifts and trims away excess skin and fat tissues, focusing primarily on the mid-face and lower face regions without including the lower neck. The surgeon makes artfully concealed incisions around the ear to lift the sagging facial muscles and fat and trim excess skin. With this technique, the patient can be ready for social events much faster after their facelift in Somerset County, New Jersey.

Endoscopic Facelift

An endoscopic facelift is an advanced surgical technique that allows surgeons to perform the facelift without major incisions and extended recovery periods. The surgeon makes three extremely small incisions along the hairline. One of the incisions serves as an entry point for an endoscope, a special device with lights that allows the surgeon to work under the patient’s skin without larger incisions. Using the endoscope, the surgeon can tighten the forehead and sculpt the muscles between the brows, reducing forehead lines and frown lines.

Neck Lift

A neck lift is a surgical procedure wherein Dr. Ramesh removes excess skin and unwanted fat pockets from the neck and tightens the underlying muscles. He makes small incisions behind the ears and under the chin to trim away excess skin and repair the underlying muscles. This neck lift is also in the deep plane, providing long-lasting results without unnatural stretching of the skin. This restores the upper neck and jawline, taking years off your face. A neck lift is suitable for patients with excessive neck bands and droopy skin tissues under the chin, also known as a “turkey wattle.”

What is facelift recovery like?

A facelift in Somerset County, New Jersey takes between 3 – 5 hours, and patients can go home afterwards with a dressing over their face. Typically, we do not use drains. Usually, patients have bruising and swelling around the eyes for 1 – 2 weeks, with swelling in the face for up to 1 month. Pain is minimal and controlled with oral medication. Most patients are ready for social events in 3-4 weeks, and “wedding-ready” by 3 months. Strenuous activities must be limited for 2 weeks, and patients may return to normal exercise and other activities after 14 days.

We are typically able to perform these delicate facelift surgeries under IV sedation, or twilight anesthesia. This avoids the risks of general anesthesia and being put to sleep completely, while still preventing you from feeling any pain during your facelift.

Facelift FAQs

How long does the recovery process take after a facelift?

The recovery period following a facelift in Somerset County, New Jersey typically ranges from 1 to 2 weeks. Swelling and bruising are common, but they gradually subside over a few weeks, and most patients can resume their normal activities after about a week or two. However, strenuous workouts should be avoided for four to six weeks.

Can a facelift be combined with other cosmetic procedures?

Yes, facelifts can be combined with other cosmetic procedures, such as eyelid surgery or a neck lift, for a more comprehensive facial rejuvenation. Please discuss your aesthetic goals with our plastic surgeons to identify the appropriate combination of procedures for your needs.

How long before I can see the final results of my facelift?

It takes several months for the final results of a facelift to fully emerge as swelling continues to decrease and tissues settle. Patients typically start seeing noticeable improvements within a few weeks, with optimal results becoming apparent around six months post-surgery.

Can non-surgical options provide similar results to a facelift?

Non-surgical options like Botox, fillers, and laser treatments can offer some rejuvenation, but they often provide temporary results compared to a surgical facelift in Somerset County, New Jersey. The choice depends on individual goals and the degree of improvement desired.

Can I expect visible scarring after a facelift?

While facelift surgery does leave scars, they are typically well-concealed within the hairline and natural facial contours. Skilled surgeons aim to minimize scarring, and over time, scars tend to fade and become less noticeable, allowing for a more discreet and natural-looking outcome.
