Seamless & Superior Facial Rejuvenation

dramatic procedures

A Miami facelift and necklift are the most dramatic procedures to rejuvenate the face and neck, smooth out wrinkles, and define the jawline – with results that will last for years! This outpatient procedure involves incisions that are hidden along the hairline and behind the ears.

Dr. White's approach to facelift surgery in Miami can restore a more youthful yet natural appearance by focusing on tightening the underlying SMAS tissue (tissue covering the deeper structures of the cheek area), adding volume if needed, and laying skin back down gently without pulling it too tightly. This helps to prevent a "windblown" look that you might have seen in a facelift that was performed with less advanced facelift procedures or by a surgeon who lacks the necessary artistry and skill. If you have minimal skin laxity, you may be a candidate for Dr. White's mini facelift, which means far less bruising and much shorter downtime. Come see if possibly the best facelift Miami has to offer is right for you!

What is a Facelift?

The Ultimate in Facial Rejuvenation

Facelift surgery is a popular plastic surgery procedure that will reduce the appearance of wrinkles, creases, and folds on the face that make it look old and tired. Also known as rhytidectomy, the overall goal of such a procedure is to restore a more youthful look to the face and jaw area. Whether it was time or stress that formed the lines and creases on your face, surgery is one option to remove the unsightly signs of aging, and rejuvenate and restore the facial skin.

The right Miami plastic surgeon can perform the entire procedure with skill and focus upon creating a balanced, beautiful outcome that is more youthful, natural-looking, and refreshed. In some cases, the surgeon will focus on a specific portion of the face, allowing their time to be spent restoring one facial area rather than procedures on the whole face. Although this may require multiple surgeries to complete, the appearance achieved is often far better, as more focus and attention to detail is possible for each individual area.

Understanding the Procedure

At our offices in Miami and Ft. Lauderdale facelift surgery is a customized procedure. After a comprehensive evaluation, a surgical plan is crafted for you. The surgery involves placing hidden incisions around the ears and in some cases, beneath the chin, through which the underlying facial structure tightened, and excess skin removed for a very natural, refreshed look.

What are the benefits of a Facelift?

The Most Effective Treatment for Aging in the Face

A facelift is a highly customizable procedure, offering various focuses and depths, with the potential to deliver the most comprehensive and substantial rejuvenating results. Depending on the details of your personalized procedure, your facelift may involve removing excess skin, lifting underlying facial structures to their more youthful positions, and rejuvenating the neck for a look that is subtly but significantly younger-looking.

Benefits of a facelife include:

  • An excellent option for patients of all ages and genders with concerns about the appearance of age in their face
  • Discreet incisions
  • Natural-looking results
  • Reduced facial wrinkles
  • Tighten sagging facial skin
  • Eliminate the appearance of jowls

Types of Facelifts

Designing Your Personalized Facelift Procedure

Full Facelift

A traditional facelift is a good option for those who have more extensive corrections needed to restore the facial appearance. With a full facelift, incisions will be placed around the ears and into the hairline. Excess fat and skin are removed for smoother skin, a redefined, youthful jawline, and jowls and under chin fat removed.

Mini Facelift

The mini facelift is a procedure similar to a full facelift, but the incisions are smaller, and recovery time is shorter. Mini-lifts are great for those who would like to refresh their look but are only experiencing the earlier signs wrinkling and sagging. It’s often called a “weekend facelift,” because you can have the procedure on Friday and return to work on the following Monday.

Lower Facelift

A lower facelift addresses the signs of facial aging on the neck from the ear to the mouth and down. If you have loose skin or have developed jowls, or have lost significant elasticity and the skin around your neck moves or sags, a lower facelift can address these concerns. Targeting excess fat from the jowl and neck region will help you regain a refreshed, far more youthful facial appearance.

SMAS Facelift

An SMAS facelift, or in medical terms, a rhytidectomy, targets the muscles that are layered deep under the skin’s surface. SMAS is a good option for those who are looking to restore a more youthful appearance by lifting the underlying facial muscles to create a very natural look, as not only the excess skin and fat are removed. This advanced surgical technique requires superior skills, and resolves midface sagging, hollow cheeks, smile lines, jowls, sagging fat and skin, and the loose skin and fat that develop beneath the chin and at the jawline.

Facelift Recovery

What to Expect After Surgery

The post-op period following cosmetic surgery, like a Miami facelift, totally depends on your plastic surgeon and the results they can achieve. Highly-experienced and talented plastic surgeons that are respected in the field of facial surgery can create lasting results that look natural, and restore a refreshed, healthy, youthful appearance to the face.

The recovery may include some level of pain, swelling and bruising, and for a few weeks, will limit your ability to drive, exercise, and socialize. The pain associated with a facelift is typically mild, easily managed with a painkiller such as Tylenol. Driving on painkillers is never advised, and you should wait until there is no need for medication to get back on the road. You may experience some stiffness in the face and neck, hindering your ability to turn your head normally during the period of recovery.

Socially, you will want to wait about two weeks, unless you want to be peppered with questions about your surgery, why you did it, and so on. Those who want to be more discreet, and arrive at your social occasion looking particularly youthful and refreshed, should wait two weeks before scheduling a social get-together. If you are planning to attend a reunion and want to look your best, schedule your facelift surgery several months prior to the event so you look your absolute best. To avoid infection, be sure to follow all post-op instructions regarding incision care from Dr. Jeremy White.

Facelift Results

The Most Advanced Techniques for the Most Beautiful Outcome

Dr. Jeremy White employs the most advanced techniques to enhance results and minimize healing time. Dr. White incorporates the following into his facelift procedures for the best overall patient experience:

  • Tumescent solution to aid in the removal of excess fat
  • The meticulous cauterization of blood vessels to minimize bleeding and bruising, and promote healing
  • The use of TXA (Tranexamic acid) to further control bleeding

A surgical facelift offers the most substantial facial rejuvenation with the greatest longevity. As your face heals and the tissues settle, you will gradually realize the full extent of your results. You can expect to look naturally rejuvenated, with no telltale signs of surgery. Your facelift results will last years into the future. You can extend the longevity of your results with regular non-surgical skin treatments, such as Chemical Peels, FaceTite, Facial Fillers, Botox, and at-home Skincare.

I am only one month post op and can already attest that I made the right decision to choose Dr. White for my neck lift and blepharoplasty. He and his team are top notch professionals but they are also very caring and attentive. Laurie was my first and main contact and she kept saying "no question is too small, so call or text anytime". She was always responsive and Dr. White provided his input when needed. During the whole process Dr. White took his time to discuss surgical options, the procedure, expectations and results. When I went in the hospital, the nursing team instantly offered up that I had made the right choice, and that he is considered one of the most respected surgeons in the field, which was very reassuring. Afterwards, I can now agree. I was nervous, and hoped for good results of course, but Dr. White and his team exceeded my expectations. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a plastic surgeon.

I am a 69 year old female. Generally aging well. My reason for going to Dr. White was to have the saggy skin on the sides of my mouth fixed. Dr. White explained how he could help me to achieve the look I wanted. I am 8 days post surgery today. I LOVE my results. I look amazing. The hospital experience was so comfortable. Argentina was my nurse. She is so caring. Dr. White has incredible knowledge and vision. He loves what he does and explains everything in detail. His staff is so caring and competent. Any surgery will have some pain, but I can say that mine was minimal. It is more of a discomfort. My bruising was also minimal. So pleased that I did this. If I every need any more plastic surgery, Dr. White will be my only choice. I trust his ability and judgment. In my opinion, he is the BEST!
-Terri Schulte

What an amazing experience with Dr. White. I am turning 48 in a few months and decided to have a mini face lift with neck lift and lipo to bilateral arms. From the beginning of the first consultation, I had the opportunity to meet Laurie (his assistant). She is available anytime of the day; whether it's to answer questions to even just lessen your anxiety about surgery. On surgical day, Dr. White and the hospital staff gave me the tools to not only feel confident about my decision but also treated me like family. The postop process was smooth, without complications, and Laurie as well as Dr. WHITE have been a blessing. I'm at post op day 6 and see already the outcome will be impressive. Thank you thank you for all you do for your patients. Yoly
-Yolexis Viera

When I went to Dr Jeremy White's office to discuss options for my 'pelican-like neck', I had not considered a neck lift. After a long discussion with Dr White about my options: the neck lift (and a lower face lift) seemed to offer me the results I was looking for. Dr. White answered all my questions and concerns. I went home and checked out many videos (You Tube) to see how others had fared - I had prepared myself for some pain and bruising. I was surprised that I required no pain pills and the bruising was minimum. Dr White called me after I was released and saw me everyday for the first week to assure I was okay. He was extremely professional and I would recommend him to anyone. It has been two weeks since I had the lifts and I am very pleased with the results.
-Barbara Dodge

I had a necklift with Dr White 9 months ago. I was scared to do it at first but he helped me through it. I still can't believe how amazing I look. Great helpers in the office too. Highly recommend!

In the world of cosmetic surgery, most patients are women seeking to restore a more youthful appearance to the face. However, men are having these procedures in higher numbers every year. Many men choose to get facial procedures to improve their appearance and present a healthier, more youthful face to the world.

The most common procedures for men include eyelid rejuvenation, nose surgery, chin augmentation, and liposuction performed on various areas of the body, including the face if unwanted fat deposits are creating a saggy, older appearance. Eyelid rejuvenation tends to be the most common form of surgery men choose. Just like women, men show signs of aging particularly in the eye area. Loose hanging skin, lateral brows, and fat pads begin to arrive as the years pass. These troublesome features can be dramatically improved during a facelift.

Through facelift surgery, men have the opportunity to turn back the clock and regain the clean facial lines associated with youth. Surgery makes it possible to have a fresh, vibrant look once again.

While many consumers are programmed to seek the “very best deal,” plastic surgery is one field where paying the price for a fully professional procedure is well worth the investment. A discount plastic surgeon often uses cookie-cutter techniques, whereas a licensed, professional plastic surgeon will customize the treatment plan, and take all the time needed to create a natural, more youthful appearance. The cost will be higher but as the area being restored is your face, it is well worth the cost in the long run. You want a result that you are proud of and happy with – not a disaster.

When it comes to a facelift, one can expect to pay all together anywhere from $7,000 to $50,000 nationally, depending upon the extent of the surgical techniques needed and the length of the operation. Measured against the cost of a neck lift--at an average of $4,300--a facelift is a more complex and difficult procedure. The reason is that performing a neck lift requires much less planning and surgical technique than a facelift, requiring less effort, operating time, or recuperation time. The facelift and necklift are typically performed at the same time since the face and neck tend to age together.

As we grow older, the facial features begin to sag and droop, wrinkles and creases appear, and the face can develop jowls as gravity takes its toll. As the face ages, many people, both men and women, feel less self-confidence, and are unhappy that the face appears far older than how they feel. A facelift is an option for some patients, but the cost may make the procedure out of reach. There are other options that are non-surgical to rejuvenate portions of the face and surrounding skin.

One procedure, known as volume replacement, includes the use of fillers or fat to restore and reshape face volume in targeted areas and fill in lines and wrinkles to create a younger look. Resurfacing procedures, another option, consist of using different types of chemical peels, dermabrasion, or lasers to rejuvenate and restore the skin tissue for a fully refreshed appearance.
