How does a facelift in Rochester Work?

A facelift in Rochester is more than just pulling back your skin. Surgical facelifts at Envision Aesthetics involve making small incisions around your hairline and behind your ear. With those incisions, we remove excess skin and re-suspend your tissues. Facelifts are used on the mid to lower face to tighten the cheeks, jawline, and jowls. The result is a more youthful look with fewer lines, minimal wrinkles, and no sagging.

Neck lift or facelift?

Neck lifts are commonly used alongside facelifts because of the areas that both treat. During your consultation, your specialist will talk with you about your options. If you’re noticing looser, drooping skin around the neck, you might be a great candidate for a neck lift!


Facelifts and neck lifts are often the biggest procedures that patients focus on, but as you talk with a specialist, they may recommend pairing your facelift with other procedures. Because of our expertise, Envision Aesthetics offers brow lifts, blepharoplasty, lip lifts, and more procedures to help your natural beauty shine brightest.

Benefits of a Facelift in Rochester

Smoother Skin

We’ve been told that wrinkles are a part of life. Some wear their wrinkles like rings on a tree. But for those that have had their 30th birthday multiple times, we don’t like to show our age. Tightening your skin with a facelift erases wrinkles and helps your credibility when you tell people your “real” age.

Less excess skin

Gravity has been an enemy since the apple hit Issac Newton’s head. And it’s been an enemy to skin even longer. Over time, skin loses its elasticity. Eventually, this stretches the skin to create extra skin that can add years to your face. During your facelift in Rochester, we remove any excess skin to turn back the hands of time and give you the best-looking results.

Increased Volume

The key to more youthful-looking skin is volume. As we age, we naturally lose volume in our cheeks, and mid to lower face. This often results in a flushed, or tired look. To solve this, a facelift tightens the skin to use the natural volume in your face and maintain a natural look.

The Right Place for Your Facelift

There are a lot of great specialists out there who can give you the same procedure that any facial surgeon can. But when considering a facelift in Rochester, you should always consider the surgeon performing your procedure.

Dr. Katherine Whipple, our cosmetic and reconstructive oculofacial plastic surgeon is one of the most recommended surgeons in upstate New York. Not only because of her years of experience as a board-certified ophthalmologist, and meticulous training in oculofacial plastic surgery. But because she brings a caring hand to every patient she touches. Our success is based on a simple philosophy. If you treat each patient as you would a loved one, you cannot go wrong.
