Facial Cosmetic Surgery
A facelift, or rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure that can help to reduce the effects of aging caused by sun exposure, gravity, and many other factors. The facelift procedure helps eliminate fatty deposits around the neck and tighten the skin around the jawline. While a facelift will not stop the aging process, it will reduce the signs of aging and help you to look younger and feel better.
What Our Patients Are Saying
Dr. Downs is a great plastic surgeon. I have had four procedures and plan on another within a year or two. The staff is friendly and helpful. I think pricing, especially for patients who have had multiple procedures over the years could be more competitive.
The Dr nurses and staff were great. My face is healing nicely, I have no complaints.
The staff was extremely friendly and always willing to answer any questions or concerns thoroughly. The doctor and his staff were quick to respond and help.
In addition, The Centre, P.C. uses a platelet gel derived from the patient’s own blood to promote faster healing, minimizes bruising, and decreases post-operative pain.
A facelift will not slow the aging process. It will, however, tighten and firm the skin giving you a more youthful, refreshed look that will last for years. In fact, most facelift patients find a new sense of self-confidence after surgery.
Due to the varying effects that the aging process has on each individual, the best candidate for a facelift can be anywhere between the ages of 40 and 80. Candidates for a facelifts are experiencing a sagging appearance in the face and neck, but still have a fair amount of skin elasticity.

If you have sagging in your neck area and beneath your chin, a necklift may be the answer. Necklifts are ideal for people with excess skin in the anterior, or the front part of the neck, beneath the chin.
The necklift procedure is done on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia. A necklift requires an incision under the chin, behind the ears and along the hairline. Muscles are tightened and the excess skin is removed.
Patients are able to return home the same day as the necklift procedure is performed. The patient will have their chin and neck wrapped in dressing or in an elastic neck sling. The most visible signs of surgery should fade within three weeks with the final result being evident in one to three months.
Minor swelling and bruising can be concealed with camouflage makeup. Patients may feel a bit tired immediately following a necklift, but their energy level will increase and they will begin to look and feel better just days after the procedure!
