The Biltmore Lift
The Biltmore Lift is a minimally invasive facelift and necklift procedure that is performed comfortably in the office setting under local anesthesia without putting the patient to sleep. The procedure is perfect for individuals who can’t afford much time away from their busy schedules, but desire a fresh, rejuvenated appearance.
The Biltmore Lift offers the benefits of a traditional facelift at a fraction of the cost and with much less down time. The procedure itself is easier to tolerate than most dental procedures, and can be performed in approximately two hours. Patients never suffer from the “pulled” or “windswept” appearance after the Biltmore Lift.

Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, can be performed at the same time as the Biltmore Lift. This procedure eliminates the tired appearance and gives a more rested and youthful look.

Short and Inconspicuous Incisions (Click to Enlarge)Many people hesitate to undergo face and neck lifting procedures because of potential scarring. With the Biltmore Lift, a “short scar” technique can usually be employed, which is currently the most inconspicuous of facelift scars.
These close-up photographs demonstrate a six week postoperative scar from one of our patients. You will notice that the scar lines are found along the curves and shadows of the ear, at the boundary between the ear skin and the cheek skin, which makes them very difficult to detect.
The price for a face and neck lift, which includes muscle tightening and skin lifting in both the cheeks and the neck, as well as any necessary fat removal from the jowls and upper neck, is $7,500. If a patient desires tightening of the facial tissues only (i.e. there would be no surgical work performed beneath the chin) the cost is $6,400. A $1,000 deposit is paid at the time of scheduling the procedure, with the remainder of the balance due on the day of surgery. By filling out the form below, you will be invited to our office for a consultation with Dr. Harley, and he will go over the procedure and exact cost with you.
