During your cosmetic consultation at The Landings Surgical Centre in Halifax, NS, also serving Prince Edward Island, one of our doctors will explore the benefits of a facelift. Before undergoing any extensive plastic surgery, patients should be aware of cosmetic treatment alternatives. Our plastic surgery center offers potential facelift alternatives that include neck lift, eyelid surgery, brow lift, and injectables.

Should I Consider an Alternative to a Facelift?

Exploring potential alternatives to a comprehensive surgical procedure is a normal part of any cosmetic consultation. Patients should take the time to ask questions and educate themselves on potential alternative cosmetic procedures.

You can rely on Dr. Richard Bendor-Samuel or Dr. Louis Boileau to give sound medical advice when recommending a suitable cosmetic procedure to help you reach your cosmetic goals. Candidates for an alternative procedure often have specific cosmetic issues, such as loose neck skin or sagging eye brows, that can be addressed with the appropriate surgical procedure.

Alternatives to Facelift

Alternatives to facelift include any procedures that address skin laxity or other cosmetic issues related to the face and neck.

Neck Lift

Often, the neck is one of the first areas of the body to show visible signs of aging. As the skin around the neck loses firmness, it can begin to droop. A neck lift can be performed in conjunction with a facelift or by itself. Patients who have had a facelift in the past can often benefit from a neck lift years later.

Under the sedative effects of general anesthesia, one of our doctors will make incisions under the chin and behind each ear. Excess neck skin will be removed and the underlying neck muscles will be repositioned if needed.

Eyelid Surgery

Sagging eyelids can leave you looking tired and advanced in age. Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) can remove skin and fat around the eyes to leave you looking younger and refreshed. The procedure can be performed on the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both. Some patients find that combining eyelid surgery with dermal fillers dramatically improves their cosmetic results.

Brow Lift

A brow lift (sometimes called a forehead lift) restores the eyebrows to a more youthful position. Our office offers minimally invasive endoscopic brow lift. Some patients benefit from combining a facelift with BOTOX® injections to eliminate the appearance of wrinkles.


Injectable cosmetic treatments offer a non-invasive option for enhancing facial features or eliminating wrinkles. Our office offers BOTOX® injections and dermal fillers. Depending on your needs, one of our doctors can administer the injections to eliminate wrinkles or to restore lost volume in specific areas of the face.
