While non-surgical solutions like Botox and injectable dermal fillers are a good way to help fight and prevent facial lines and wrinkles, as your face continues to age, a more invasive solution may be needed to restore the youthful look that you are seeking. When the jowls and deep wrinkles start putting up more of a fight, a facelift with NYC plastic surgeon, Dr. Scheinman, can help take years off of your appearance.
Is a Facelift Right for You?
The facelift can help you if you are looking to improve signs of aging. It can help you treat common problems with the mid to lower face, such as:
- Jowls and sagging skin
- Moderate to severe lines and wrinkles
- Nasolabial folds
- Excess facial fat (can be removed during your facelift using liposuction)
A facelift is most common with men and women in their forties, fifties, and sixties. However, Dr. Scheinman can also perform the surgery on patients in their seventies if they are healthy enough and right for the procedure. Studies by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) have shown that a facelift can provide the longest lasting results to maintain a person's appearance when done before the age of 50.
You may also improve the results of your facelift by pairing it with other facial procedures, such as a brow lift, to address other parts of the face as well.
How Your Facelift Will Be Performed
You will sleep through the entire surgery under the use of general anesthesia. Dr. Scheinman will then begin your facelift procedure by making an incision within your hairline, beginning at the temples, traveling around your ear and ending near the lower part of your scalp. Fat is then either removed with liposuction or sculpted, and the underlying tissue is reshaped to provide an improved contour. Dr. Scheinman will then pull the skin tight back over your face and close your incisions to give you a natural and youthful look.
Recovering from Your Facelift
You should expect to spend a couple of days recovering after your surgery. Patients do not often experience much pain from their procedure, but Dr. Scheinman can provide you with medications to help with any discomfort. In about three weeks, bruising and swelling will fade and your face will appear much younger and brighter.
