Although we cannot stop the effects of aging, many individuals choose to rejuvenate their appearance by having a facelift. This procedure, medically called rhytidectomy, is among the most commonly performed plastic surgery procedures in the world. Conveniently located in Jacksonville, Garcia Facial Plastic Surgery, led by double board-certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Phillip Garcia, offers facelifts for men and women living in Ponte Vedra Beach, Orange Park, Lakeside and nearby areas in North Florida.
What Is A Facelift?
Facelift (or rhytidectomy) surgery is meant to address the signs of facial aging, particularly in the lower cheek and neck. These signs of aging include the jowls in the lower cheek and the excess skin of the neck. If these signs of aging are concerns of yours when you look in the mirror, the solution may be a facelift.

How Much Does a Facelift Cost in Jacksonville?
Cosmetic surgery of the face varies an immense amount in terms of cost. Depending on what conditions one is trying to improve, the cost of a facelift can range from that of skin care products to a more involved procedure. The truth is that while not as expensive as once thought, making an investment in the way you look and more importantly the way you perceive yourself is well worth it.
On the issue of the price of facelift surgery, think about this. You may have invested several thousands of dollars into the automobile of your dreams. You care for it, you clean it, put good gasoline in the engine.
Now you are faced with making a much smaller financial commitment in yourself. This will be the look of your dreams. You’ve already cared for your face, kept it out of the sun, eaten well, exercised, etc.
Garcia Facial Plastic Surgery makes facial surgery procedures available and affordable for everyone by providing easy financing options and accepting flexible payment options, such as cash, major credit cards and personal checks for a facelift.
Can a Facelift Reverse Effects of Aging?
As the face ages, jowls, which is Latin for “broken jawline”, begin to develop as a result of the cheek losing its strength with the deeper underlying musculature. As the muscle sags, it takes the more superficial fat and skin with it creating the appearance of a “jowl” along the jawline.
The neck ages in a different manner when the superficial muscle of the neck, called the platysma falls in a downward direction and splays apart in the middle under the chin. This “shifting” of the muscle takes the more superficial fat and skin with it and causes the appearance of aging.
Facelift Patient Testimonial
“I had a facelift with Dr. Garcia three and a half months ago and could not be any happier. His results are so natural, and the incisions aren’t even noticeable. He makes you feel like one of the family when you walk into the office, and that is so important when having cosmetic facial surgery. I highly recommend Dr. Garcia to anyone. We are very grateful and thankful to him and his staff.” — C.K.
Who Is The Ideal Candidate For A Facelift?
Almost any adult may be a good candidate for a facelift as long as they are healthy and have recently begun to show signs of aging. If you are considering a facelift, you should also have realistic expectations. While a facelift may help you look younger, it will not stop the aging process, and proper skin care will be required after the procedure to protect your skin and maintain results as long as possible.
What Should I Expect On The Day Of My Facelift?
Upon admission to the center, your vital signs will be checked, and you will be asked to put on a gown. Your face will be marked with a marker.
