Is a Face and Neck Lift Right for You?

Although minimally invasive techniques such as BOTOX® Cosmetic and dermal filler injections can be highly effective in enhancing facial contours, some patients will have relaxation of the soft tissues of the face and neck that will not be adequately addressed with these techniques. For more dramatic rejuvenation and enhancement of relaxed facial soft tissues, such as jowls and relaxed neck and jaw line contours, a face and neck lift may be considered by our patients from Gatineau, Kingston, Cornwall, and beyond. Dr. Silverman and Dr. Boyd strive to achieve a relaxed, natural look in their patients, using contemporary and current techniques in facial surgery to achieve these results.

Face and Neck Lift Procedures

After he makes the incisions, your surgeon removes excess skin and tightens the underlying muscles.
