Face Lifts

Do you find yourself dissatisfied when you notice the signs of aging on your face? Is makeup no longer sufficient for you to cover up wrinkles or age spots? If this is the case, pursuing a facelift could be an excellent choice for you to enhance your appearance. People who have had facelifts report that the procedure not only allows them to look more youthful and refreshed, but it gives them more confidence in their daily lives.

At Jim Brantner M.D. Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, we pride ourselves on providing customized face procedures to meet every patient’s needs. We offer a variety of face procedures, including basic facelifts, S-lifts, mid-face lifts, brow lifts, and neck lifts.

What Types of Face Lifts Are There?

At Jim Brantner M.D. Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, we perform several different kinds of facelifts to meet our patients’ diverse aesthetic needs.

The face procedures we offer include:



An S-lift is sometimes called a “mini-facelift.” The surgery’s name is based on the shape of the small incision the doctor makes. The incision starts at the temple and then swoops around the ear on each side of the face. An S-lift can reduce wrinkles and signs of aging and is a shorter and less intense procedure than a traditional facelift.


Midface Lift

The midface lift targets specific areas of the face, especially your lower eyelid area, cheek, mouth, and jawline. A midface lift can remove loose skin and fat from these parts of the face to improve contouring and definition.

Please contact us today at (423) 328-9000 to set up an appointment for a consultation with a cosmetic​ surgeon from our team.

Brow Lift


It is common for people to develop wrinkles near the eyebrow area due to the combination of facial expressions and gravity. Stress and anxiety can also cause deep wrinkles in the forehead. A brow lift can eliminate wrinkles and relieve the stress and tension that many of us hold in the forehead, creating overall smoother skin.

We offer both eyelid surgeries and brow lifts at Jim Brantner M.D. Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery. If you are looking specifically to reduce sagging in the upper eyelid area, eyelid surgery may be the better choice for you. Some patients also choose to combine eyelid surgery and a brow lift for maximum results.


Neck Lift

One of our patients’ most common insecurities is noticeable signs of aging in the neck and jawline area. A neck lift targets these areas in a way that improves skin smoothness and adds definition.

A neck lift can sharpen the jawline, remove excess fat and skin from the jaw or neck, or minimize the appearance of a double chin.


Combining Procedures

For some aesthetic goals, the best results can be achieved by combining multiple procedures. We will collaborate with you at your consultation and beyond to determine if that could be the best choice. At the initial consultation, we consider your wants and needs to create a personalized treatment plan.


Who Is a Good Candidate for a Face Lift?


Your age, lifestyle, and the status of your skin will help you decide how effective a facelift would be for you. One misconception about facelifts is that people need to be in their 50s or 60s to get the procedure performed. Although facelifts are indeed most popular for women in their 50s, any adult of any gender who notices sagging skin and deep creases on their face could be a great candidate for a face procedure.



What Is the Recovery Process from a Face Lift?


All of our facelift options have relatively speedy recovery periods.  For example, recovery from a brow lift is typically 10 to 14 days, and recovery from an S-lift is often about 3 to 5 days. This means that after just 1 or 2 weeks, individuals will not have any visible signs of surgery.

In the immediate period after the surgery, we suggest that you take specific steps to help in the healing process, including keeping your head elevated when resting, applying ice to the treated area, and taking recommended pain medications.
