Lower Facelift in Manhattan, NYC
Is your lower face starting to show the tell-tale signs of aging before the rest of your face? A lower facelift can help you get that youthful look back, and it’s performed by board-certified Manhattan plastic surgeon and general surgeon Richard W. Swift, Jr., M.D., F.A.C.S.
What Is a Lower Facelift?
A lower facelift can help improve loose skin around the neck, jaw line, deep wrinkles, and wrinkles around the corner of the mouth. It does not affect other areas of the face such as the eyes or eyelids, nose, or forehead. More appropriate surgical options such as a brow lift, eyelid surgery, or nose surgery may be a better choice in those cases.
Benefits of a Lower Facelift
People who undergo a lower facelift are thrilled by the results and tell us that, as a result, they feel the following benefits:
- A more youthful, renewed appearance.
- Greater self-confidence and self-esteem.
- Enhanced self-image and appreciation.

Keep in mind that each individual is different and that you’ll learn more about the outcome you can expect from your specific surgery or treatment at your consultation with Dr. Swift.
Preparing for a Lower Facelift
A lower facelift takes approximately 1-2 hours, and general anesthesia or sedation can be used to make you feel more comfortable throughout the procedure. A small incision is made near the ear, and the facial muscles and deep tissue are repositioned while excess skin is trimmed. Remaining skin is then lifted and tightened to give a smoother, softer appearance.
Lower Facelift Recovery
It’s common to experience swelling and bruising during the first weeks after your procedure. Your face will be bandaged for several days, and you should be able to return to work within 7-10 days. Prescription pain medication can be prescribed to alleviate any discomfort, which is usually minimal. Full post-operative instructions will be given to you at your consultation.
Is a Lower Facelift Right for Me?
If you’re bothered by the appearance of your lower face, including sagging, drooping skin, or deep wrinkles around your nose, mouth, or chin, a lower facelift can help give years back to your face. Only Dr. Swift can determine if you’re an appropriate candidate for a lower facelift, but many of the people he has consulted with feel that a lower facelift is a great way to restore a youthful appearance and add greater vitality and volume to the skin.
How Much Does a Lower Facelift Cost?
Costs for your lower facelift will vary depending on the extent of surgery or the number of treatments needed to achieve your desired result. Most insurance plans do not cover plastic surgery or specific cosmetic treatments. Dr. Swift accepts payment via cash, check, or credit card, as well as Prosper Healthcare Lending as a financing option.
