Facelift & Neck Lift


Signs of aging in the face and neck, such as loose skin and jowls, can distort your youthful facial contours, giving an aged appearance. A facelift and neck lift with Dr. Renee Burke repositions loose or sagging skin and underlying tissue to restore a more youthful appearance that enhances your natural features. By combining a facelift and neck lift, patients from Barrington, Arlington Heights, Schaumburg, Crystal Lake, and Algonquin, IL, can enjoy more comprehensive results.

Your Facelift and Neck Lift Consultation

Dr. Burke understands that no two patients are alike, so she will customize your procedure to your specific needs. Your individual consultation with Dr. Burke will reveal which combination of techniques she will use to achieve your optimal results. It is recommended to bring a photograph of yourself from 10 to 15 years ago to assist with obtaining results that reflect your individual features. Contact the practice at (847) 382-4400 or request a consultation online to learn more.

Nonsurgical Facelift Options

Some patients will benefit from nonsurgical treatments, such as BOTOX® Cosmetic, fat grafting, or dermal fillers. These nonsurgical options alone may refresh your appearance or delay the signs of aging. They can also be used to complement a facelift and refine natural-looking outcomes or to help you maintain your more youthful appearance.

Your Facelift and Neck Lift Procedure

Dr. Burke customizes the procedure to your specific needs and may perform a combination of techniques to achieve your desired outcome. Surgical rejuvenation may address the mid-face, the cheeks and jowls, and the neck through incisions inconspicuously placed around and behind the ears.

Our facelifts and neck lifts are most commonly performed under general anesthesia and may include an overnight stay. In some cases, our patients may opt for PrecisionTX ®, a nonsurgical skin tightening treatment to improve the appearance of their necks.

Facelift and Neck Lift Surgery Recovery

Recovery depends on the extent of your facelift, neck lift, and any accompanying procedures. During the 2 weeks before surgery, Dr. Burke will have you start utilizing the Alastin Skin Care Tri-Hex Transition Duo to prep your skin for surgery and aid in healing after surgery.

Generally, you may engage in light activity the day after your surgery. A return to more normal activity may take 1 to 2 weeks. Your appearance will gradually refine to a complete result over the following 6 to 8 weeks. Proper skin care and sun protection are essential during healing to maintain your appearance.

Results should last several years; however, natural aging will continue after your face and neck lift, and weight gain or loss may influence the results over time.

LightStim® LED Light Therapy

LED Light Therapy

Dr. Burke uses LED (light-emitting diode) therapy on facelift patients after their surgeries to enhance the healing process and minimize scarring. LightStim is a soothing, effective treatment that is also used to diminish fine lines and wrinkles. LED therapy works in much the same way sunlight nourishes plants. LightStim emits UV-free, beneficial light rays that energize cells and stimulate the body’s natural healing process. It prompts the production of collagen to create smoother, more elastic skin. Studies show that using LED therapy after cosmetic surgery helps incisions heal more quickly.
