Facelift & Neck Lift to Improve Signs of Aging

POSTED ON FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 22, 2019 AT 10:54 AM by Dr. Mokhtar Asaadi

The loss of elasticity in the skin and youthful contours in the face are natural signs of aging, but certain factors such as sun damage and stress, can make these symptoms worse or make us feel as if our appearance doesn’t match how we feel internally.

Facelift surgery and neck lift surgery can improve visible signs of aging, creating a more youthful profile and taking years off your appearance.

What Is A Facelift?

A facelift, also known as a rhytidectomy, is a cosmetic surgery procedure designed to give a more youthful facial appearance.

During a facelift, incisions begin in the hairline at the temples and extend down around the ear, ending at the lower hairline. The facial skin is repositioned, and excess fat may be removed or redistributed to sculpt and improve facial contours.  

Dr. Asaadi will also ask his facelift patients to bring a photo of themselves when they were younger, so he can work with you achieve your desired results.

What Is A Neck Lift?

Facelift surgery is often paired with a neck lift, designed to address sagging jowls, loose neck skin, and pockets of fat around the neck and underneath the chin.

With a neck lift, an incision is made below the chin, and like facelift surgery, excess skin and fat is removed or repositioned. The platysma bands in the neck may also be corrected to create a smoother-looking neck.

Who Should Get Facelift/Neck Lift Surgery?

Ideal candidates for facelift and neck lift surgery are those looking to improve sagging around the face and neck. A facelift and neck lift can reduce facial wrinkles, skin laxity, and fine lines, creating long-lasting improvements to the facial profile. Although these procedures are not designed to stop the natural aging process, the results from facelift and neck lift surgery can be long-lasting when performed by a skilled plastic surgeon.

Facial Rejuvenation for a Youthful-Looking You This Summer!

POSTED ON WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 13, 2016 AT 11:23 AM by Dr. Mokhtar Asaadi

Opting for facial rejuvenation during the winter months can result in a beautiful look come summertime. Many patients take advantage of the long winter by undergoing plastic surgery in preparation for the warmer months. Patients often choose to combine different facial rejuvenation techniques for youthful-looking, balanced results. At Asaadi Plastic Surgery, we offer a variety of facial surgery options at our New Jersey office, as well as at our new location in New York City! Below are some commonly-requested procedures that can achieve a younger-looking you.

Facelift & Necklift

Combining a facelift and necklift can ensure a youthful facial profile. Facelift surgery can improve the most visible signs of aging by removing excess fat, tightening underlying muscles, and correcting loose or sagging facial skin. While facelift surgery can achieve a younger-looking appearance, an aged neck can continue to lead to an older, worn facial profile. Undergoing necklift surgery targets troublesome neck bands and lax neck skin to promote a contoured neckline. Your plastic surgeon can also tighten underlying muscles and lift loose skin to a more youthful position with a necklift.

Forehead Lift & Blepharoplasty

Patients undergoing a forehead lift can target drooping brows and excess forehead skin that results in an older-looking, furrowed appearance. Horizontal forehead lines can be improved by repositioning forehead tissues and removing loose skin. Patients can also opt for blepharoplasty, also known as eyelid surgery, to target the puffy under-eye bags or drooping eyelids. Correcting these conditions can improve the appearance of tired eyes for a refreshed look.

Facial Implants For The Cheeks, Jaw, & Chin

A variety of facial implants can be utilized to improve facial definition and symmetry. Correct gaunt cheek hollows and provide fullness to the midface with cheek implants, or add long-lasting contours to the jawline and chin with chin implants. These implants come in different sizes and shapes to complement your individual profile. Your plastic surgeon can help you determine what is best for your individual procedure goals and desires.


In some cases, simply correcting nose asymmetries can lead to an enhanced facial profile. Nose surgery can improve nostril size, smooth bumps around the nose bridge, and correct the angle of your nose. Rhinoplasty is also utilized to correct breathing issues, such as a deviated septum. Patients often choose rhinoplasty to correct nose imbalances, bringing the nose into balance with the rest of the facial profile.
