We want you to get the most out of your consultation. If at all possible, it is best to make arrangements for small children to stay home rather than having them join us for your appointments.

Aging impacts each face differently, making it impossible for a single facelift solution to meet every need. Phoenix facelift surgeons are pleased to offer men and women in our area a variety of options, allowing them to tailor your procedure to meet your specific needs.


A mid-facelift focuses on the eyes, nose, and mouth. With a mid-facelift, our surgeons can remove bags from underneath the eyes, address hollowness in the cheeks, and eliminate nasal folds. As the name indicates, a mid-facelift is performed on the midsection of your face and is not intended to address issues with the jawline or neck.

Mini Facelift

A mini facelift, also known as a “weekend lift,” is intended to address issues with the cheeks, jawline, and neck. Unlike a mid-facelift, the mini lift does not focus on the area around the eyes, but it is a minimally invasive and incredibly effective way to reduce subtle signs of aging.

Everyone has different needs. During your initial consultation with one of our surgeons, they will be happy to listen to your concerns, assess your facial features, and help you decide which facelift option is best for you.

If you live in the Scottsdale or Phoenix areas of Arizona and would like more information on your facelift options, please contact Gawley Plastic Surgery to schedule an initial consultation.
