The face lift surgery can be designed to correct problems in the neck, under the jaw and/or chin and in the cheeks. Though singular in name, “facelift” actually referrs to a set of surgeries to rejuvenate the face by lifting tissues into a more youthful contour, and removing excess skin to give a more vibrant look.
A common area of concern are the jowls, which are well addressed with a mini facelift. This is a smaller variant of the face lift, with a shorter surgery and recovery time. Aimed at tightening the jawline, the mini facelift is a sought after procedure for men and women as early as their 40s. Less surgery usually translates to a faster recovery, with most patients looking non-surgical to the outside world in 2 weeks or so.
Patients with more advanced facial aging requiring more extensive work to address the descent of the cheeks, jawline, and neckline can be candidates for a deep plane facelift, which is uses a multi-layered technique to reposition the deep tissues of the face and neck. The mid-facelift, which addresses sagging in the cheek or middle third of the face, tends to be more common with younger patients, while patients with more facial aging often require a full facelift to address aging in the lower two-thirds of the face.
Facelifts are always tailored to individual patients’ anatomy and areas of concern, and can be combined with other facial rejuvenation procedures such as the eyelid lift (blepharoplasty), chin implants to further contour the jawline, fat transfer to restore facial volume, and laser resurfacing to improve skin quality and tone.
How to determine the appropriate facelift procedure:
Today more women and men are considering a facelift or mini facelift to help restore their face to a more youthful appearance. No longer do you have to worry about a facelift giving you a “plastic” or pulled look. Dr. Kundaria’s facelift patients tell us that their family and friends say that they look just like themselves, just more youthful, refreshed, and vibrant. Facelift surgery restores a more pleasing contour to your face and neck. A facelift can be done alone, or in conjunction with other procedures such as a forehead lift, eyelid surgery, or nose reshaping. At your consultation visit, Dr. Kundaria will discuss these procedure options.
Are you a facelift candidate?
Facelifts have been successfully performed on patients as young as 40 years old and as old as 80. If your face and neck have started to sag, you may be a good candidate. Dr. Kundaria can assess your skin’s elasticity and help you determine the appropriate procedure for you.

“I had erbium laser resurfacing done by Dr. Kundaria five days ago and I am amazed by how quickly I am healing. The whole experience has been amazing! Dr. Kundaria has an excellent bedside manner, extremely attentive to my questions and any concerns I might have. He even called several times after the procedure to check on me at home. I feel very confident in any procedure he performs on me and would recommend him to everyone!!!”
“I had such an amazing experience with Dr. Kundaria!! Him and his staff were so incredibly helpful and made me feel so comfortable from the minute I walked in. I told him what my area of concern was and we made a plan based on my condition and concerns with keeping in mind my price point. He really cares and wants the patient to walk out with the best result possible. I can’t wait to see my final result after my series of laser treatments.”
“A wonderful find. Dr. Kundaria has a top notch, professional approach. There is no pressure or excess. Cindy Roberts did my laser hair removal and she, along with Noelle, answered every question and set my mind at ease explaining everything in detail. The office is clean and simply yet professional and comforting. I highly recommend Nuance and their staff. I am actually looking forward to my next treatment and future procedures.”
“I went for a consultation with Dr. Kundaria. After some significant time, he recommended an upper blepharoplasty. I had my procedure done a few weeks ago, and I am so pleased with everything. I look and feel like a million bucks. He called me the night of my procedure. He checked up on me during the long weekend. I didn’t have any pain, and the results are phenomenal. I highly recommend him to anyone. He is just awesome.”
“I recently went to Nuance Facial Plastics where I met Dr Kundaria. I met with him one on one and he took the time with me to answer all my questions and concerns. My initial thought was for me to come back and get my treatments but he took me right away to start the process. Everything he told me that would happen, did. He is very knowledgeable with all the procedures and was very thorough during the procedure. I’m excited for my next visit and I will not go to anyone else. Best doctor I have ever interacted with.”
“I initially visited Dr. Kundaria for a consultation. Dr. Kundaria answered all my questions thoroughly and took the time to explain treatments and procedures. After a thoughtful recommendation, I decided on Dysport and a facial laser treatment that day (my first experience with both treatments). Very happy with the results! I will definitely be returning and highly recommended Nuance Facial Plastics!”
