As we grow older, our faces show signs of aging that can cause some women and men to feel self-conscious about their appearance.

A facelift removes excess tissue and tightens loose skin, giving your face a rested and rejuvenated look.

Dr. Steven Wiener has helped many patients achieve natural-looking results at his Scottsdale, AZ, cosmetic surgery center.

How a Facelift Works

Before and after facelift surgery

A facelift is performed to lift and tighten drooping skin around the mid-face and cheek area. A plastic surgeon works through small incisions along the hairline and ears to make the necessary adjustments.

We Offer Several Types of Facelifts

In addition to traditional facelift surgery, Dr. Wiener also performs these variations on the procedure:

  • Mini Facelift - Less invasive than a traditional facelift, a mini facelift uses smaller incisions and less surgical revision of underlying facial tissue.
  • Deep Plane Facelift - This form of surgery lifts the face without pulling the skin or muscles too tightly, for a remarkably natural appearance.
  • SMAS Facelift - Targeting the lower two-thirds of the face, this lower face lift can address the jowls as well as excess skin around the neck.

Sedation and Anesthetic

A facelift begins with anesthesia and sedation to help you remain comfortable throughout treatment. The surgical procedure can be completed with oral or IV sedation.

Facelift Incisions

A traditional facelift involves an incision beginning in the hairline near the temples, continuing around the ears, and ending in the lower scalp. Since we use endoscopic tools, incisions will be small and discreet.

Sculpting Facial Tissues

Dr. Wiener will then remove, redistribute, or sculpt underlying fatty tissue. He may also lift and reposition the muscle tissue underneath. The skin is draped over the newly created contours of your face, and any excess skin is trimmed away.

Closing Incisions

The incision is then closed with sutures or adhesives. Thanks to our endoscopic surgery techniques, scarring is minimal and will be difficult to detect.


The precise duration of your recovery will depend on the extent of your treatment. Dr. Wiener will provide instructions for limiting physical activity as well as recommendations for medications to reduce pain and aid in healing.
