Procedures You Can Combine With a Facelift

The facelift is one of the world’s best-known plastic surgery procedures, and a favorite among people who want to look younger and restore a youthful vibrance to their face.

And while the procedure can have outstanding stand-alone results, many patients are realizing the benefits that come with combining the facelift with other procedures.

Here, Dr. Josh Waltzman in Long Beach, CA, discusses some of the best procedures you can combine with a facelift to enjoy more profound, stunning results.

Go for Minimally Invasive Procedures

Because the facelift is a surgical procedure, you’ll need to plan for downtime to recover from the operation.

For this reason, we recommend avoiding other surgical operations when looking to combine procedures with a facelift. Such non-invasive procedures include dermal fillers, plasma pen, chemical peels, and CoolSculpting®.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are an ideal complementary procedure for a facelift.

Whereas the facelift can stretch the skin and remove fine lines and wrinkles, dermal fillers can provide volume and contour to otherwise sunken facial   without adding any extra recovery time.

Plasma Pen

Much like microneedling, the plasma pen creates painless, superficial wounds to stimulate the body’s healing processes. This helps to regenerate healthy, new tissue where old skin cells once were. In the process, the plasma pen also boosts natural collagen production to replenish volume and make the skin appear more vibrant and youthful.

Chemical Peels

During a chemical peel, our specialists apply a chemical solution on your skin to remove the top layers of dull skin, revealing a smoother, fresher layer underneath. We offer a variety of state-of-the-art peels from AlphaRet, Vitalize, VI, and ZO.


CoolSculpting is a procedure enjoying massive growth in popularity.

Focusing on almost any area of the body, CoolSculpting uses super-cooling technology to freeze and kill excess fatty tissue in problem areas, particularly the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, lower back and upper arms.

Treating your body and your face simultaneously with a facelift and CoolSculpting can give you a wholly revamped appearance.
