What Is A Neck Lift? What Is A Mini-Facelift?

The full facelift/necklift, or medically cervicofacialplasty, works to shape and position the cheek, eliminate jowls, sharpen the jawline and clear hanging skin and vertical muscle banding in the neck.  More limited procedures focus on one or more of these areas while performing the same techniques in those areas as the full lift.  

This means the outcomes of the procedure in terms of degree of correction and durability of correction generally matches that of a full facelift/necklift only in a more limited area.  Incisions may be shorter and recovery time modestly reduced compared to a full facelift/necklift.

Who Is A Candidate For Neck Lift And Mini-Facelift?

The full facelift/necklift has more focused incisions and dissection than historic facelifts while producing more complete correction.  This is the right choice for most patients who have significant aging changes and are decades past their youthful facial appearance.  Still, many patients, earlier in the aging process, show noticeable aging changes in a portion of the face or neck which are not responding to non-surgical treatments.  

Other patients have previously undergone a facelift/necklift but now years have passed and noticeable aging changes are re-emerging but only in a portion of the face or neck.  In these circumstances, the best option may be a more limited procedure focusing on just a neck lift or just a mini-facelift to address the feature that shows most prominently.

The Power Of One™

Even with a full facelift/neck lift, there are aging features that the surgery does not address. As an experienced plastic surgeon, Dr. Bass understands that a neck lift or mini-facelift on its own will not yield a completely rejuvenated appearance. Other features that you express concern with are often helped with non-surgical options which can be included in your care on your schedule and at your convenience. Sometimes this is built into the plan for the surgery day and other times, these features are addressed separately at a preferred time of your choosing.  

The option is yours and Dr. Bass and his team will work with you to provide facial aesthetic treatments like Botox, laser, and medical-grade skincare routines to help you preserve a beautiful, vibrant look. Dr. Bass builds customized roadmaps that help patients maintain a youthful look over time. His approach is called ‘The Power of One’, to illustrate that patients can be confident in his expertise for all their facial aesthetic needs. Too often, patients seek aesthetic care from a variety of providers leading to a fragmented rather than an optimized appearance.
