As bodies get older, the effects of aging start to accumulate. Sagging skin, jowls, wrinkles, neck bands, and more start developing, and all of a sudden, the vibrancy of youth slips away. Fortunately, there are options available that can restore your toned and youthful facial features, leaving you rejuvenated, refreshed, and confident.
The ARC Lift, also known as the Aesthetic Rejuvenation and Contouring Lift, is an innovative procedure that can help you look years younger. This combination procedure is exclusive to ARC Plastic Surgery, specifically tailored to give our patients the exact care they need to reach their aesthetic goals. It is a non-surgical procedure that combines the use of permanent thread lifts to reposition sagging neck muscles, radiofrequency energy skin tightening, facial resurfacing, and minimally invasive liposuction to reduce signs of facial aging. At ARC Plastic Surgery in Miami, FL, our experienced team can help you achieve a more youthful appearance with the ARC Lift.
With an ARC Lift Miami patients can benefit from the advanced and innovative procedure. This minimally invasive technique is performed by our highly experienced board-certified plastic surgeon, dedicated to providing the highest quality of care and results.
The ARC Lift provides superior results in facial rejuvenation. It is a minimally invasive procedure designed to lift the skin and underlying fat while reducing wrinkles or creases. The technique is ideal for patients that want to restore a more youthful appearance without major surgery or downtime. This procedure can also treat the jowls, cheeks, neck, and brow. The technology used in the ARC Lift is advanced and precise, making it an excellent choice for those seeking subtle yet effective results.
The technique is broken down into four main steps to address each area of concern.
FaceTite, a revolutionary radio-frequency technology, powers the ARC Lift. FaceTite uses heated radiofrequency energy to target and tighten the underlying tissue while simultaneously melting fat cells and tightening skin. It’s a minimally invasive yet highly effective procedure that can produce long-lasting results.
Morpheus8 is a highly advanced radiofrequency microneedling technology. This can be used in a controlled and customized manner at multiple skin depths to rebuild your body’s collagen and rejuvenate your skin. We usually recommend an additional two treatments of Morpheus8 microneedling after the ARC Lift procedure for maximal results.
MyEllevate Neck Lift
MyEllevate neck lift is a precise muscle-tightening technique used to improve neck and jawline contours. It uses a permanent suture guided under the skin with a special cannula to sever platysma bands and cinch the jawline. When people say “snatched,” this is what they are looking for!
Neck liposuction is a safe and effective way to remove stubborn fat from the neck area. The procedure uses small hollow tubes to remove stubborn areas of fat from the neck via tiny entry points through the skin. Neck liposuction helps to smoothen the jawline, reduce the bottom of the jowls, and sculpt the elegant neck contours.
The ARC Lift offers a variety of benefits to those who choose it, including:
The ARC Lift is ideal for those wanting to achieve a more youthful look. Candidates should be generally healthy, without underlying medical conditions that would make them ineligible. Some of the concerns that can be addressed with an ARC Lift include:
If you’re interested in the ARC Lift, you should consult with a highly experienced provider. During your consultation, your doctor will assess your concerns and help you determine if the ARC Lift is right for you. During this time, it’s important to be upfront about your medical history, including any medications or supplements you may be taking.
Once the decision to proceed with the ARC Lift is made, we will provide detailed instructions on preparing for the procedure. This may include avoiding certain medications, stopping smoking, and avoiding blood thinners.
The ARC Lift procedure typically takes around 2 hours, depending on the complexity of the case.
First, a numbing agent is applied to the area being treated to ensure the patient is comfortable throughout the procedure. Next, small incisions are made around the ear and neck, through which radiofrequency energy is introduced to the deep structures, followed by focal liposuction. Then a permanent thread is inserted to lift the skin and platysma muscle. This thread creates an immediate tightening of the jawline and neck contours. The exact placement of the threads will depend on the individual’s needs and desired outcome. Once the skin has been repositioned and secured in place, incisions can be closed. Finally, morpheus8 radiofrequency microneedling is performed at multiple different skin depths along the face and neck.
At the end of the procedure, a compression garment is applied to help reduce swelling and promote healing. We recommend the use of a soft collar full-time for five days and another week at night after that.
Immediately after the procedure, our Miami ARC Lift patients may experience some bruising and swelling. This is a normal part of the healing process and should subside over several weeks. Patients should avoid strenuous activities for the first week after the procedure and can expect to return to their regular daily routine within a few days.
It is essential to follow all post-procedure instructions provided by your healthcare provider, including wearing a compression garment for the recommended amount of time, avoiding strenuous activities and heavy lifting, and keeping your incisions clean and dry.
Results from the ARC Lift are typically visible within 4 to 6 weeks and can last up to 5 years. Patients may also need follow-up treatments to maintain the results of their procedure.
At ARC Plastic Surgery, we are dedicated to helping our patients look and feel their best. Our facility utilizes the latest technology and innovative techniques to ensure the best possible results for our patients.

The ARC Lift is not a painful procedure. A numbing agent will be injected and applied topically during the procedure to ensure you are comfortable throughout the treatment.
As with any surgical procedure, there are certain risks involved with an ARC Lift. These include infection, scarring, and numbness. That is why it is vital to seek the counsel of a fully trained professional when beginning treatment.
The results of an ARC Lift are not permanent, but they can last up to five years with proper aftercare.
The best age for an ARC Lift can vary depending on individual goals and desired results. Generally, the optimal age range for this procedure is between 40-60.
The cost of an ARC Lift varies depending on the complexity and extent of treatment needed.
