What is a lower facelift?

A lower facelift is a procedure that rejuvenates everything below the corners of the mouth, lifting and tightening the face’s underlying structures that have weakened with age. It removes excess loose skin to smooth deep wrinkles, refine the jawline, and eliminate jowls.

Can a lower facelift be combined with a neck lift?

You can combine a lower facelift with a neck lift to achieve the best results. It is rare for surgeons to do a lower facelift without a neck lift.

The platysma muscle covers the neck and extends to the lower face. This broad sheet of muscle sags over time, and tightening it as one unit provides a more balanced and comprehensive result. A neck lift smooths sagging neck skin, removes excess fat to eliminate a double chin, and corrects a “turkey neck.” Addressing these signs of aging with a lower facelift and neck lift gives the entire neck and jawline a more youthful appearance.

How much does a lower facelift in New York City cost?

A lower facelift procedure in New York City costs about $6,000 to $8,000, but the price can vary depending on your surgeon’s experience, the severity of your skin laxity, and other factors.

*Prices reflect the average cost of the procedure in the area. For an actual quote, please contact Dr. Miller directly.

  • Deep wrinkles
  • Nasolabial folds

  • Sagging facial skin
  • Turkey neck
  • Neck banding
  • Downturned corners of the mouth

What does a lower facelift involve?

Dr. Miller performs the lower facelift in his in-office surgical suite and can often complete the procedure in less than 90 minutes using local anesthesia.  

Dr. Miller makes a small incision near the ear to allow access to the tissues and muscles underneath the skin. He lifts and pulls underlying tissues while removing excess fat and skin and tightening the muscles to restore a smoother, fresher, and more youthful appearance.

Who is a candidate for a lower facelift?

Candidates for lower facelift surgery typically have early signs of aging, such as facial sagging, deep nasolabial folds, and jowl formation. You may be a candidate if you’re in your late 30s or early 40s and want to refresh your appearance without undergoing a full facelift.

Does a lower facelift hurt?

Results from a lower facelift can last for up to 10 years or more.

Will I have scars after a lower facelift?

Scars from a lower facelift are usually hidden in the crease in the front of the ear during a lower facelift, hiding any scarring. t scars are minimal and nearly invisible once they heal fully.

What are the risks of a lower facelift?

Complications are rare when an experienced surgeon like Dr. Miller performs the procedure, but risks can include:

  • Infection
  • Bleeding
  • Asymmetry
  • Nerve damage
  • Delayed wound healing
