There are several types of facelift techniques designed to minimize aging signs, their action can either be localized or more extended. The face and neck lift has become the most requested type of facelift because it addresses aging signs in the middle and lower third of the face as well as the neck.

The procedure aims at treating skin and muscle laxity in the face and neck areas. The face and neck lift is not designed to change the shape or the appearance of the face, instead, it restores the different structures of the face and neck (skin, muscles, fat) to their previous, or younger state (position, tension, etc.). The muscles can be tightened and the fat may be repositioned to allow the skin to be draped over the improved facial contours with a normal tension (not excessive).


This double action offers a natural result because the skin is not ‘pulled’. The result is also durable thanks to the muscular tissue layer being tightened. The recovery after a facelift surgery in Tunisia is fairly simple. The skin is less traumatized with the modern facelift technique therefore bruising may be minimal.

Excess fat can be treated with liposuction if necessary. On the other hand, if the patient’s face is gaunt, this can be corrected during the same procedure with fat transfer. The neck and face are rejuvenated this way. The incisions are largely hidden by hair in the temporal area, the neck and around the ears. The face and neck lift can be performed as soon as aging signs are clearly there, which usually occur between 35 and 45 years old.

The face and neck lift procedure can be combined with other facial procedures such as the eyelid lift (blepharoplasty) and the forehead lift to smoothen deep wrinkles. Non-invasive treatments can also complement the face and neck lift well: mesotherapy, chemical peels, fillers and Botox injections.
