Facelift & Neck Lift
In and around Vancouver, facelift and neck lift procedures help women and men alleviate signs of aging, including sagging skin, jowls, deep creases around the nose and mouth, and general wrinkling and laxity in this area that obscures the contours of the neck and jaw. Dr. Mathew Mosher performs these facial plastic surgery procedures to give the lower portion of the face a firmer, more youthful appearance.
Dr. Mosher had the privilege of completing a prestigious fellowship in Aesthetic Facial Surgery, through which he learned many advanced techniques in facelift surgery. This allows him to tailor your facial rejuvenation procedure to your unique needs, and create results that are natural looking and balanced, yet noticeable. When it comes to your face, be sure to find a plastic surgeon who is a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada with extensive training and experience, such as Dr. Mosher.

If you live in or around Vancouver and a face lift or neck lift is something you are considering, request a consultation with Dr. Mosher at YES Medspa & Cosmetic Surgery Centre in Langley. He and his experienced staff will discuss all of your surgical and non-surgical options with you, and recommend a satisfying approach to achieving the look you want.
Your British Columbia Facelift Options
In years past, facelift surgery involved simply lifting and tightening the skin of the lower face, which could result in a pulled or “worked on” appearance. Newer techniques allow for much more natural results, which look better and may last longer than with previous approaches.
During your facelift procedure, Dr. Mosher will make very fine incisions in front of and around the ear, which are concealed within the hair line. He will separate the skin from the subcutaneous layers, and tighten the deeper facial tissues for improved tone. He will reposition underlying fat and tissue to a more youthful placement, then re-drape the remaining skin and trim away the excess.
Endoscopic Midface Lift
This approach, also called a cheek lift, can lift sagging cheeks, smooth out nasolabial folds or marionette lines, and elevate the corners of your mouth. It is performed using a tiny fiber optic lens inserted through half-inch incisions placed inconspicuously in your mouth and temple. Dr. Mosher will carefully reposition the sagging fat pads to their more youthful placement on the cheekbones, resulting in a subtle lift to the face. Endoscopic technology allows for minimal visible scarring, and a shorter, more comfortable recovery.
Mini or Short Scar Facelift
This is a more limited version of the traditional facelift, which smoothes and tightens the nasolabial folds, jowls and neck through a smaller incision. This approach is good for women with some laxity in the lower face, whose skin is still somewhat elastic and does not display excessive sagging. Through the smaller incision in the temple area, Dr. Mosher lifts the skin and repositions and tightens the underlying tissues. The surgical and recovery time with this procedure is somewhat shorter than with traditional facelift surgery.
If sagging and laxity are limited to the neck area, a neck lift may be all that is required. This procedure involves an incision under the chin, through which the excess fat is removed and the neck muscles are tightened. Excess skin also may be trimmed away to create a smoother, more youthful appearance. A neck lift can be performed alone or in conjunction with facelift or other facial rejuvenation procedures.

Can Facelift Surgery Be Combined With Other Procedures?
Patients who desire a total facial rejuvenation often have facelift surgery performed along with other procedures. Frequently chosen options include:
- Brow lift
- Eyelid surgery
- Facial fat grafting (fat transfer) or dermal fillers
- Morpheus8 RF microneedling
Recovery and Results
Recovery varies from patient to patient, and depends on the extent of the face lift procedure you choose. After your outpatient procedure, you will leave our surgery centre with your head and neck lightly wrapped in dressings, which are usually removed the next day. Most patients find that their discomfort is easily managed with oral medications. You will have some swelling and bruising, and sutures that will be removed approximately 10 days after surgery.
Most patients take 10 to 14 days off before returning to work or regular social activities, but sometimes less with the more limited face lift approaches. Your final results will be apparent after approximately 6 weeks, with subtle changes continuing for several months. At this time, many patients choose Medspa services at YES Medspa to enhance their results and maintain optimal skin quality after surgery.
Is facelift surgery safe?
Dr. Mosher has advanced training and extensive experience performing facial plastic surgery. He carefully screens all patients to ensure they are physically and mentally healthy enough for surgery. He performs the procedures in his state-of-the-art on-site surgical facility. Together, these considerations maximize safety and lead to satisfying outcomes for his facelift patients.
How many years younger will I look after the procedure?
After a traditional facelift, Dr. Mosher’s patients typically look 8 to 10 years younger. While the aging process continues, patients continue to look younger than if they had never had the surgery.
Will my scars be noticeable?
Dr. Mosher places facelift incisions within the hairline and natural creases to ensure the resulting scars are not noticeable.
Will anyone be able to tell I’ve had the surgery?
People will likely notice that you look refreshed and more vibrant after your surgery, but the majority will not know why. Dr. Mosher uses advanced facelift techniques that provide very natural-looking results instead of the “windblown” look of many years ago.
