Your face is the first part of your appearance that people see, and it’s the first thing you see when you look in the mirror. Having a face you want to show off can improve your confidence and overall quality of life. At Plastic Surgery Vegas in Las Vegas, NV, Dr. Andrew G. Silver & Dr. Terry Higgins, help patients achieve a slimmer, more appealing face with facelift surgery. By tightening skin and smoothing wrinkles, facelift surgery can help you get the slimmer look you desire and feel refreshed, youthful, and proud of how you look.

What is facelift surgery?

You may have tried creams, serums, and makeup blending techniques to get rid of your wrinkles – only to realize they have little to no effect.


Facelift surgery tightens loose skin and wrinkles. This efficient and effective procedure will create a more youthful appearance by smoothing out wrinkles near the eyes, mid-face area, cheeks, and bottom portion of the face, including the jowls and neck. It will also provide a slimmer overall appearance.


Depending on your goals, Dr. Silver or Dr. Higgins will recommend one of four types of facelifts:

  1. Full facelift, which addresses advanced signs of aging on the entire face

  2. Mid-facelift, which improves the middle to lower region of the face (including the jowls)

  3. Lower facelift, which corrects the neck and chin area (and sometimes the jowls)

  4. Mini facelift, which creates subtle improvements in the mouth, jawline, and jowls


Some facelifts are more invasive than others. Dr. Silver & Dr. Higgins will guide you in understanding which facelift surgery will provide you with the most natural, confidence-boosting look. It’s also common for patients to have other procedures to further enhance their appearances, such as an eyelid lift, brow lift, or wrinkle-relaxing injections.

Will my face look slimmer after facelift surgery?

The benefits of facelift surgery are vast. Our patients in Las Vegas, NV can achieve a smoother, refreshed look, helping them feel more confident in their appearances.


Your face will look slimmer after a facelift because facelift surgery tightens loose, sagging skin, leading to a more defined jawline and chin. It can also get rid of a double chin, making you look slimmer and more toned.


Other benefits from facelift surgery include:

  • Addresses severe wrinkles and facial lines

  • Recontours the neckline

  • Reduces sagging jowls

  • Targets many signs of aging at the same time


What’s more, results from a facelift are dramatic and long-lasting, and scars are minimal and virtually invisible.
