What can a facelift accomplish?

A facelift in NYC with Dr. Halaas contours and defines the facial features, lifting the tissues into a more youthful appearance. A facelift can achieve the following improvements:

  • Overall facial rejuventation
  • Tighter skin
  • Lifted, contoured, and defined features
  • Smoothed wrinkles and creases
  • Eliminated jowls and double chin
  • Sculpted jawline
  • Many signs of age disappear in only one procedure.
  • As many as ten years are taken off the face

Types of facelifts

Dr. Halaas performs different types of facelifts in NYC to achieve your aesthetic needs and goals.

Mini facelift

This less invasive facelift is performed under local anesthesia and targets more precise areas, requiring smaller incisions. Small “S” shaped incisions are made near the hairline by the ears. Using these incisions, the mid and lower areas of the face (the cheeks and jawline) are lifted and sculpted. There is less surgical trauma with a mini facelift, resulting in a shorter recovery period. Because it has a shorter procedure time and faster recovery, the mini facelift is often called by the nickname, “the weekend lift.” 

Deep plane facelift

A deep plane facelift is performed with general anesthesia and addresses the underlying structure of the skin–muscle and connective tissue called the SMAS (Superficial Musculoaponeurotic System). This network of tissue lies over the facial muscles, forming the framework and structure of the face. Dr. Halaas will make incisions around the ear, then use these to tighten and lift the SMAS, working in a wider range of tissue than other facelifts to achieve more dramatic improvements. The four ligaments that anchor the facial muscles downward are released to beautifully lift the facial features.


The SMAS facelift is similar to a deep plane facelift. It addresses and tightens the SMAS (Superficial Musculoaponeurotic System). This network of muscle and connective tissue lies beneath the skin and above the facial muscles. Incisions will be made around the ear and used to lift, tighten and address the SMAS, focusing on the muscles in the jaw area that have loosened and caused sagging. Excess skin and fat are removed to achieve a more youthful appearance.

Local Lift

Dr. Halaas created the Local Lift®, a facelift procedure less traumatic than a full facelift that achieves excellent results. The Local Lift has fewer risks and is customized for each patient. This procedure can lift sagging cheeks, reduce lines and wrinkles, and tighten the neck muscles.

About neck lift surgery

For those with a double chin, a “turkey wattle”, or other issues concerning this area, a neck lift is an excellent option for tightening up the skin and restoring definition. A neck lift corrects issues that can cause a great deal of frustration and embarrassment for many people. Whether you’ve lost weight and have excess skin on the neck or are simply looking to tighten it up, a neck lift has the ability to truly transform this area, achieving beautiful definition and giving you back your profile.

What Dr. Halaas’s Neck Lift Can Do

A neck lift is often done alongside a facelift, but it doesn’t necessarily have to be. Those who only need to address aesthetic neck issues can have the procedure done on its own.

A neck lift can:

  • Improve the appearance of a double chin
  • Define the chin, neck, and jawline
  • Tighten sagging neck skin
  • Soften neck wrinkles
  • Sculpt the chin, neck, and jawline/jowls
  • Achieve a more contoured and youthful neck
  • Address signs of aging
  • Boost self-esteem and confidence
