Through careful evaluation of your aging features, Dr. Few can produce a very natural restoration of the midface, eliminate jowls and enhance the neck during your facelift in Chicago.

Deep furrows and expression lines are smoothed, natural curves are restored, the jaw and neckline are defined, and a younger, relaxed and energized face is revealed. Results are effortlessly natural, thanks to a conservative approach that has earned Dr. Few a reputation as among the best facelift surgeons in Chicago.

Lift and tighten

Whether you have early or advanced signs of aging, Dr. Few has expertise with a full spectrum of solutions to make you look your best – from a full facelift with neck lift to a mini facelift combined with ultrasound energy. During your consultation, Dr. Few will evaluate your face to determine the level of skin laxity and which kind of facelift you need to meet your goals.

A variety of other procedures may be combined with your Chicago facelift surgery procedure to enhance your outcome, including facial implants, soft tissue fillers, resurfacing techniques, and botulinum toxin injections.

Am I a good candidate for a facelift?

If you are sick and tired of looking in the mirror and not loving what you see, perhaps it is time to consider a surgical intervention.

A facelift is ideal for those who are experiencing sagging jowls, deflation of the midface, wrinkling in the temples and brow and an overall tired-looking aesthetic. As with any surgery, ideal candidates are in good health, both mentally and physically, with no major medical issues, and have realistic expectation for improvement rather than perfection.

Procedural Steps


Dr. Few will use either oral, IV or general anesthesia so that you remain comfortable during your procedure. Oral anesthesia procedures are performed on-site at The Few Institute in Chicago, in a fully certified procedure room.

Incisions and repositioning

Placement and extent of the incision area can differ based on the type of lift you have.

  • A traditional facelift incision begins in the hairline at the temple, continues around the ear and ends in the lower scalp.
  • A mini facelift has an even shorter incision around the ear. This is the least invasive surgical facelift and limited to pulling up the muscle and tissue under the skin.

In both cases, fat may be sculpted or redistributed from the face, jowls and neck; underlying tissue repositioned; and deeper layers of the face and neck lifted, to result in improvement of the lower 2/3 of the face.

  • A neck lift is often part of a facelift procedure. A neck lift can also be a stand-alone procedure for the right person. This involves an incision placed under the chin and/or behind the ears to tighten the underlying muscles of the neck and reposition sagging skin. This approach does not typically produce the same level of result as a facelift, but it can be a nice alternative for the patient with moderate aging changes.
  • A mid facelift, or cheek lift, lifts the falling lower lid and cheek junction to improve the lower eyelid, remove fat bags, and restore volume to the central portion of the face.

Closing the incisions

Dr. Few closes his incisions with sutures, skin adhesives or surgical clips. Once healed, your incision line will be well concealed within the hairline and in the natural contours of the face.

Your results

The visible improvements of your procedure will appear as the bruising and swelling subside. The healing process depends on the type of procedure or combination of procedures you have and your individual ability to heal. Dr. Few is happy to answer any questions you have about the healing process. He is always striving to provide the best facelift Chicago can offer.
