Facelift North Jersey

One of the most common aesthetic enhancement procedures available at our North Jersey practice is also one of the most effective: the facelift. Facelift surgery addresses a number of issues one may have with how they look, including deep folds, wrinkles, and other signs of aging and exhaustion that are too significant to treat with non-surgical skin tightening techniques like Ultherapy®. Facelift procedures available from our board-certified plastic surgeons in North Jersey can take years off the face and give your skin a smoother, more youthful, more refreshed appearance. Luis A. Zapiach, MD and John T. Cozzone, MD all offer a variety of facelift techniques that can create natural-looking, beautiful results without giving away the fact that you’ve had plastic surgery.

How Much Does a Facelift Cost and What Are the Benefits of a Facelift?

Answering the question of how much a facelift costs in Bergen County, NJ, will really depend on your needs and wants. If you Google “how much does a facelift cost in Bergen County, NJ,” you will discover that the American Board of Plastic Surgeons notes that costs vary for a multitude of reasons.

Having facelift surgery at our North Jersey practice will offer numerous benefits to individuals seeking to minimize signs of aging for a rejuvenated and revitalized facial appearance. Based on your specific needs and goals, this popular procedure can be individually tailored to help:

  • Reduce notable lines, wrinkles, folds, and creases

Who is a Good Candidate for a Facelift Without Surgery?

Good candidates for a facelift without surgery typically include women and men who desire a more extensive, longer-lasting solution than non-surgical treatments can provide for one or more of the following aesthetic facial concerns:

  • Moderate to deep facial lines, wrinkles, creases, and/or folds
  • Stubborn accumulations of excess fat
  • Lax, sagging skin, and/or jowling
  • Loss of volume in the temples and midface

It is important to note that a facelift without surgery will only address these concerns if they are located in the lower two-thirds of the face. If your cosmetic issues also pertain to the eyes and/or forehead region, you may want to also consider a brow lift and/or blepharoplasty at our North Jersey office.

How is the Facelift Procedure Performed?

At Art Plastic Surgery, Dr. Cozzone and Dr. Zapiach all offer a full facelift and mid-facelift, both of which are outlined below. The most appropriate option for your unique needs and goals can be determined at the time of the consultation.

A traditional facelift typically begins with incisions made at the temples, above the hairline. The incisions will extend to the front of the ear or inside the front-ear cartilage going to the back of the earlobe. Typically, any scarring from a traditional facelift is well hidden under the hairline. Our plastic surgeons will separate facial skin and fat from underlying muscles and then tighten the muscles. The excess skin is removed, and the remaining skin is tightened for a smoother, less wrinkled appearance. The incisions are closed, and the procedure is then complete. Most facelift surgeries take about two to three hours to perform, depending on the extent of the procedure. Facelift surgery can be performed on an outpatient basis.

Recovery from a facelift procedure will entail some bruising and swelling after surgery; however, any pain and discomfort can be managed with medication. Our surgeons will advise you to keep the head elevated for a few days following surgery, and patients will often be required to wear bandages on the face for a few days while the face heals. Most patients can resume normal daily routines about 10 days after facelift surgery, though more strenuous activities will need to be avoided for a bit longer to help ensure proper healing.


While it is certainly the most comprehensive facial procedure available, facelift surgery will only address the lower two-thirds of the face. As a result, individuals bothered by signs of aging in the upper third of the face (essentially the eyes and forehead region) will benefit most from combining their facelift with eyelid surgery and/or brow lift if they wish to rejuvenate these areas as well.

Due to factors such as heredity, lifestyle habits, environmental elements, and more, there is not a specific age that is considered “best” for a facelift. Our plastic surgeons have performed facelift surgery for patients of many different ages, all of whom were considered good candidates based on their specific needs and desires at the time. If our doctors determine that facelift surgery is not right for you during your consultation, they will recommend a more appropriate treatment option.

Incisions for facelift surgery are usually made above/behind the hairline, which means any scarring is often concealed by one’s hair. As an added benefit, the appearance of any potential scarring tends to improve over time with proper care and strict adherence to postoperative restrictions throughout the healing process. In the majority of cases, the only people who will know you have received a facelift will be you, your surgeon, and anyone you choose to tell.

Our plastic surgeons take great care to minimize tissue trauma throughout the facelift procedure, which ultimately helps reduce any pain that may be experienced after surgery. At our practice, most patients report experiencing nothing more than mild to moderate discomfort that can be effectively alleviated with medicine.

Facelift results tend to last an average of about seven to ten years for most patients, though this can vary based on factors such as tissue elasticity, lifestyle habits, postoperative skin care, genetics, and much more. When results do eventually start to diminish, patients will still appear younger than they would if they never received a facelift.
