Rejuvenate Your Youthful Look

Unlike the plastic surgery treatments of the past, the modern neck and face lift techniques we utilize at the Phoenix-based Arizona Eye Institute & Cosmetic Laser Center can restore and rejuvenate your face without resulting in a "pulled" or "plastic" appearance. An expert face lift (rhytidectomy) performed by Dr. Emilio Justo will improve the visible signs of aging on your neck and face, giving you a healthier, more youthful appearance.

Although a neck and face lift will help define your jaw line and aesthetically enhance the contours of your face, it cannot reverse years of skin damage, particularly the extensive damage that may have occurred from Arizona's sun and dry climate. A face lift won't address any fine wrinkles either unless paired with additional skin treatment, which is available at the Arizona Eye Institute & Cosmetic Laser Center. Specific areas, such as the skin around the eyes, might require an additional procedure like blepharoplasty. Dr. Justo will discuss other treatments that may help enhance the benefits of your neck and face lift in initial consultations.

You can look years younger and look as good as you feel. To schedule a consultation for a neck and face lift, contact our facilities near the Phoenix area from our Sun City, Sun City West, and Wickenburg locations. With our help, you can regain your confidence and competitive edge!

Andrea after a Facelift

Satisfied facelift patient Andrea describes her great, long-term experience with Dr. Emilio Justo. She felt it was the best thing she could’ve ever done for herself. She believes that Dr. Justo and his staff answer your questions and treat you like family.

Benefits of a Face Lift and Neck Lift

Dr. Emilio Justo's patients who are desirous of improving their facial appearance by undergoing a face and neck lift to:

  • Tighten sagging facial skin and muscles
  • Remove excess skin and fat
  • Correct deep creases between the nose and mouth
  • Return firmness to the face and neck
  • Restore a more youthful, vibrant appearance

After the recuperation period many of our patients say, "I wish I'd done it sooner." In fact, read what Michalina of Surprise, Arizona has to say,

"It seemed crazy to my friends that I would at the young age of 81, decide to have my wrinkles removed. I certainly do not regret it. Now when I look in the mirror, I no longer see a wrinkled prune face. I am deliriously happy that my wrinkles have completely disappeared. The laser procedure I had performed seems to have improved my health and energy level - - because I am young again. Thank you, thank you, Dr. Justo for devoting your life to help people with your chosen profession. And many, many thanks also to your very professional and courteous staff. You indeed are a great team."

Face Lift and Neck Lift Surgery and Recovery

During a face lift, also known as rhytidectomy, Dr. Emilio Justo will carefully remove excess skin and fatty tissue around the jaw and neck, tighten the underlying muscles and precisely re-drape the skin of your face and neck to restore a more youthful appearance. Depending on your goals, a face lift can be performed either by itself or in conjunction with other treatments.

There are numerous surgical approaches that can be used in performing a face lift. Dr. Emilio Justo typically uses a traditional approach of starting the incisions above the hairlines right around the temples. The incision continues in front of the ear and downward behind the earlobe to the lower part of the scalp. If you have decided to improve the sagging skin on your neck and remove excess skin and fat, a small incision can be made under the chin.

The removal of excess skin, tightening, and re-draping of the skin is done precisely so that you have natural looking results. There is no need to worry as Dr. Justo will conceal the incisions naturally in the skin folds and your hairline.

Patients who undergo surgery are usually 40 to 70 years old, but older clients may be interested in receiving the treatment as well. It is important to note, however, that patients who still have strong facial bones and fairly elastic skin will achieve the best results. Dr. Justo will review your medical history and discuss your cosmetic facial enhancement options with you.

To prepare for the operation and avoid complications, we highly recommend that you not smoke for about a month before and a month after the surgery. Anti-inflammatory drugs such as aspirin should also be avoided because of their blood-thinning qualities, which can lead to excessive bleeding during the procedure and possible hematomas afterwards.

Dr. Justo performs face lifts in his accredited outpatient surgical center, and you will be given detailed instructions for post-operative care. Patients are allowed to resume wearing makeup after a few days, and swelling and bruising usually fade away after a couple weeks. Our aesthetic professionals and Certified Permanent Cosmetic Professional can advise you on skin care services and makeup tips. During your recovery, we will call you to see how you are feeling as we will be with you every step of the way.

The results of face lift surgery usually last from five to fifteen years, but other treatments can be used to keep you looking great for even longer.
