Facelift and Neck Lift

The sun, the air, and even gravity all take their toll on your face, leading to an aged appearance with loose skin, fat deposits, neck lines, wrinkles, and jowls. It’s a natural progression, but that doesn’t mean you are powerless to keep yourself looking young. A facelift and neck lift can tighten facial contours and address your specific concerns. Residents of Santa Rosa and throughout Sonoma County turn to board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Victor Lacombe for facelift and neck lift services for his years of experience and attention to detail.

Facelift Basics

Most facelift patients are between their forties and their sixties, although the procedure has been successful for older patients (even those in their seventies or eighties) as well. Patients who still have some skin elasticity see the best results. Although a facelift and a neck lift are often combined, some people may find that their only area of concern is their neck. When this is the case, a facelift is not necessary and a neck lift alone will suffice. Some facelift patients choose to grow out their hair prior to surgery to hide incisions as they heal. Dr. Lacombe will discuss the location and size of incisions with you during your initial consultation.

The Procedure

For your facelift, Santa Rosa facial plastic surgeon Dr. Lacombe will create a personalized treatment plan based on your unique needs and goals. Depending upon the areas to be treated, incisions can be made behind the hairline at the temples, around the natural contour of the ears, and possibly under the chin. With these incisions, excess skin will be removed, fat deposits will be readjusted, and muscles will be lifted. Immediately after surgery, your face will be swollen and may feel stiff. You may experience some discomfort and bruising, but these will dissipate over the course of about 2 to 3 weeks. The same day or, at the longest, within 2 weeks, you should be able to return to your normal routine. Following Dr. Lacombe’s instructions during your recovery will ensure optimal surgical results.


Dr. Lacombe could definitely be considered a “facelift specialist.” This means that you don’t need to worry about looking overly tight or “worked-on” after your facelift and neck lift surgery with Dr. Lacombe. His many years of face-focused experience have helped hone his skills so that he can provide beautiful, natural-looking results.

You Have Options

If you’re not ready for surgery, Dr. Lacombe also offers non-invasive procedures that can provide beautiful results. He teaches other physicians across the U.S. and in Santa Rosa about BOTOX® Cosmetic and injectable fillers such as Restylane, Restylane Lyft, Restylane SilkJUVÉDERMJUVÉDERM VOLUMA and Sculptra Aesthetic–he uses these fillers to reduce the signs of aging without surgery. If you aren’t just concerned about your lower face and you are seeing drooping in your brow or eyelids, you may want to consider eyelid surgery or a brow lift. Dr. Lacombe will discuss the possibility of combined procedures with you during your initial consultation.

Roderic Wallace Trusts Dr. Victor Lacombe

“Probably one of Dr. Lacombe’s greatest assets is his intuitive understanding of what it takes to create a very natural yet aesthetically pleasing result. In my case, a brow lift opened up my eyes, a subtle lift to the tip of my drooping nose dealt with the negative effects of gravity, a small chin implant balanced a newly sculpted neck and stronger jaw line… yes, a number of procedures done at one time, but oh so worth it in the long run. I can enthusiastically endorse Victor as one of the finest plastic surgeons around.*”
