What is a Z Facelift?

Patricia Villate | May 3, 2024 | Posted in Facelift

A Z facelift may include a combination of techniques, such as targeted lifting and strategic volume addition, which together can create a natural, refreshed appearance without the need for a full facelift. Intended to re-contour the jawline by eliminating jowls and correcting loose neck skin, a Z lift is minimally invasive and requires less downtime than traditional facelift surgery. 

Dr. Loeb’s plastic surgery practice encompasses a wide range of facial rejuvenation procedures, including non-invasive treatments and facelifts. Known for achieving natural-looking results, Dr. Loeb crafts customized treatment plans to meet his patients’ goals and exceed their expectations. Schedule a consultation today. 

Why Get a Z Facelift?

Our skin loses collagen and elastin as we age, leading to decreased firmness and elasticity. In addition, facial fat redistribution and bone density reduction alter the face’s structure, resulting in pronounced nasolabial folds, jowls, and sagging neck skin. The Z Facelift is particularly effective for correcting these concerns.  

Many patients turn to this treatment after finding that injectables provide little to no improvement for a loss of definition in the jawline and jowls. The Z-Lift rejuvenates the jawline into a more youthful, heart-shaped contour and addresses sagging skin on the neck.  

Additionally, the Z Facelift can be combined with other treatments to smooth fine lines around the eyes, forehead, or mouth. 

Who Should Get a Z Facelift?

This procedure is not a one-size-fits-all. It can be adjusted to suit the specific aesthetic concerns of the patient, whether they’re looking for subtle enhancements or more dramatic results. A Z-facelift is ideal for individuals experiencing moderate to significant signs of aging and who desire a more youthful and sculpted appearance.  

For individuals with busy schedules, the Z-facelift is an effective alternative to a traditional facelift because it delivers noticeable improvements without the need for extensive downtime. Consult with Dr. Loeb to determine if a Z-facelift is appropriate based on your goals and facial anatomy.  

Benefits of Z Facelift 

The Z Facelift offers targeted enhancements to specific facial zones, providing significant aesthetic improvements with less discomfort. The benefits include:  

  • Shorter recovery times than traditional facelift surgery 
  • Reduced risk of complications 
  • Can be combined with other treatments, such as fillers or laser therapies
