Facelift & Neck Lift

The facial aging process is a complex interplay of external and internal factors including sun exposure and genetics causing unwanted sagging of the skin, fine lines, deep wrinkles, jowling and uneven volume deflation.

Before and After Photos

A facelift, also called rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure designed to correct these cosmetic concerns. An expanding understanding of the intricate anatomy of the face has led to the evolution of various techniques. The skin-only approach has mostly been abandoned on account of its poor longevity. Modern techniques achieve improved rejuvenation of the face by recognizing and utilizing the superficial musculoaponeurotic system layer. This pivotal connective tissue overlies the facial muscles of the face and when manipulated in a SMAS LIft or undermined as in the Deep Plane facelift technique allows for profound long-lasting results. Incisions are meticulously planned to hide along natural creases along the ear, earlobe and onto the hairline as indicated and are virtually imperceptible. 

Facial rejuvenation is a passionate topic of our surgeons, who approach each patient with an emphasis on providing a bespoke surgical plan to provide a natural looking rejuvenated appearance. Based on a comprehensive analysis this may involve combining various procedures or employing adjuncts such as fat grafting. 

  • Blepharoplasty 
  • Browlift
  • Buccal fat pad removal 
  • Chin Augmentation
  • Lip Lift 
  • Necklift 
  • Facial Fat Grafting 

Facial fat grafting refers to the harvesting of fat from one region of the body and transferring to the face to restore/enhance volume, smooth contour related wrinkles, and establish more youthful facial contours. Meticulous harvest and injection of the fat to the face affords enduring effective volume enhancement, beyond that provided by dermal fillers. Dr. Rosenberg and Dr. Pathak regularly assess a patient’s candidacy for this versatile technique during their consultation as part of their facial analysis. 

Facelift FAQ

“Reveal your timeless radiance, embrace the new you!”

Am I a good candidate for a facelift?

Good candidates for facelifts are generally healthy individuals who have noticeable signs of facial aging, such as sagging skin, deep wrinkles, and loss of facial volume. It’s important to have realistic expectations and be prepared for the recovery process.

How long does a facelift procedure take?

The duration of a facelift procedure can vary depending on the complexity of the case and the specific techniques used. On average, it can take anywhere from two to five hours to complete.

Will a facelift completely remove all wrinkles and signs of aging?

While a facelift can significantly improve the appearance of wrinkles and sagging skin, it cannot halt the natural aging process. However, the results of a facelift can last for several years, making you appear more youthful and rejuvenated.

What is the recovery period like after a facelift?

The recovery period after a facelift varies for each individual, but generally, you can expect some swelling, bruising, and discomfort for the first week or two. Most people are able to resume normal activities within two to three weeks, although strenuous exercise should be avoided for a longer period.

Will a facelift make me look “plastic” or unnatural?

When performed by a qualified plastic surgeon, a facelift should not make you look unnatural or “plastic.” The goal is to achieve a natural-looking rejuvenation that enhances your features and preserves your unique facial characteristics.

Can a facelift be combined with other procedures?

Yes, a facelift can be combined with other cosmetic procedures to address specific concerns. Common complementary procedures include eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty), brow lift, neck lift, and facial fat grafting.

Neck Lift FAQ

“Elevate your grace, redefine your neck of confidence!”

Who is a good candidate for a neck lift?

Good candidates for a neck lift are individuals who have loose or sagging skin in the neck area, excess fat deposits, or prominent neck bands. It is important to have realistic expectations and be in overall good health.

How is a neck lift performed?

A neck lift is typically performed through incisions made behind the ears and sometimes under the chin. The surgeon will remove excess skin, tighten underlying muscles, and reposition or remove fat as necessary to enhance the neck’s contour.

Can non-surgical treatments provide similar results to a neck lift?

Non-surgical treatments like injectables and skin tightening procedures may provide temporary improvements, but for more significant and long-lasting changes, a neck lift surgery is often the most effective option.
