Excess, saggy skin on the neck or ‘turkey neck’ can make you feel self-conscious. A facelift can help to improve the appearance of sagging neck skin and more. 

What is a Facelift? 

Dr. Stein performs over 100 facelifts to correct sagging skin and wrinkles each year. A facelift can help you appear years younger than before the procedure.

How Does a Facelift Work? 

You will be put under general anesthesia during your facelift for your comfort. Dr. Stein will then make small, precise incisions around the ear or hairline. After making the incisions, Dr. Stein will lift and remove excess skin on the face. He will also lift the muscles under the skin, tightening the appearance for a more youthful look. The technique he uses will minimize downtime and scarring. 

Add a Neck Lift for Best Results!

To help better the appearance of a ‘turkey neck,’ Dr. Stein can perform a neck lift simultaneously as a facelift for an even more rejuvenated appearance. The neck lift can help sculpt the neck and remove the sagging appearance. 

What is a Facelift Recovery Like? 

After a facelift, the first few days will involve some swelling and pain. Dr. Stein will recommend two weeks of downtime from work or strenuous activities to maximize recovery fully. A specific diet is also recommended for a full recovery, as chewing can aggravate results.

What Results Will I See From a Facelift? 

Your results will develop over the course of six months. Over time, you will see your face change in its appearance and start to see the difference a facelift can give you. With a face lift and additional neck lift, you will notice the look of wrinkles begin to disappear. Your overall neck and face will appear more youthful. 

Am I a Good Candidate for a Facelift? 

If you have a ‘turkey neck’ that you want to improve the appearance of, a face and neck lift may be suitable for you. Ideal candidates should be non-smokers because smoking can prolong the healing process. 

Dr. Stein provided excellent outcomes. The resulted look natural and are consistent with what was explained before the surgery. I recommend Dr. Stein to everyone.
