Sun exposure, gravity, and natural deterioration in skin quality cause your face to lose its youthful tone and definition as you get older. 

Although there are many options to treat signs of aging, a facelift remains the most effective choice for comprehensive facial rejuvenation.

With the help of New York, NY, plastic surgeon Jon B. Turk, you can look up to 10 years younger and feel more confident than ever.

Rejuvenate Your Appearance Through Facelift Surgery

A facelift (medically known as a rhytidectomy) is a cosmetic procedure designed to reverse the signs of aging that develop in the face. It is one of the most effective methods of facial rejuvenation, gently elevating and tightening the skin as well as the underlying soft tissues. 

A facelift accomplishes what no procedure can achieve. By targeting several layers of your facial anatomy, a facelift creates dramatic improvement and gives you more permanent results than non-surgical alternatives.

Effects of A Facelift Reversing 3 Major Elements of Aging 

Skin

As we age, our bodies produce less collagen, causing the skin to become thinner, looser, and less elastic. Fine lines and wrinkles will appear, especially in areas with frequent muscle contraction.

Gravity also takes a toll, causing jowls and excess skin to accumulate on the lower half of the face. During a facelift, the skin is lifted and pulled smooth and the excess trimmed away. 

Muscles

Facial muscles can get weaker over time. The loss of muscle tone combined with looser skin can give you a droopy appearance in the cheeks and jawline. During a facelift, the muscles are tightened to reduce sagging and banding around the jawline.

Fat 

The fat pads that give your cheeks definition can shift and diminish as you get older. Meanwhile, fat deposits under the chin tend to grow, creating extra fullness in the lower half of the face.

While a facelift can remove some excess fat, we often integrate liposuction and/or fat grafting into the procedure to restore definition to the cheeks and jawline. 

Candidates For Facelift Surgery

Our plastic surgeons will first meet with you for a consultation at our New York City practice to determine if a facelift is right for you. To be a good candidate, you should be a non-smoker in good overall health. While there is no age limit for facelift patients, individuals with good skin elasticity tend to have the most success with the procedure.

We will also discuss your goals for treatment to ensure a facelift can realistically meet your expectations. If not, we can recommend alternative options that might be better for your needs.

Combining & Customizing Surgical Techniques

It is important to understand that plastic surgery is a customized process. The right facelift technique is different for each patient depending on their unique features, facial structure, and overall cosmetic goals. Our doctors will carefully assess your needs during the consultation process and develop a treatment plan that will achieve the most satisfactory results. 

In many cases our custom facelifts include additional surgical techniques. We often combine eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty), liposuction, neck lifts, and rhinoplasty with the facelift to address other areas that might need supplementary enhancement. The goal is to achieve well-balanced results and harmony among all the aspects of your appearance. 

A Closer Look at the Procedure

Facelifts are generally performed on an outpatient basis at our New York City surgical center. The length of the facelift procedure can vary based on your custom treatment plan but usually take a minimum of two to four hours. Here are the steps you can expect:

Anesthesia

Most of our facelift patients are placed under IV anesthesia for the procedure. You will be carefully monitored throughout the operation to ensure your safety. 

Incisions

Your plastic surgeon will carefully make an incision along the hairline that extends down towards the ears. The precise length of the incision will depend on the facelift technique we have chosen for you as well as your unique facial anatomy. 

Aesthetic Modifications

Next, we lift the skin and tighten the underlying muscles and soft tissues. The fat pads of the cheeks are elevated, and excess fat is removed from the jawline. Neck lifts are often performed in conjunction to tighten the skin around the neck. The skin is redraped over the face, and the excess is trimmed away. 

Stitches

Once the contouring is complete, we close the incisions with stitches or sutures and bandage the area. We will continue to monitor you as the anesthesia wears off and then discharge you to recover in the comfort of your home.
