Every year, facelifts top the list of the most common plastic surgeries in the United States. Most facelift patients fall into the 40-70 age range, and are looking to restore a fresh, smooth look to the sagging or drooping skin on their face and neck region. Facelifts offer only a moderate amount of downtime, and can achieve stunning results in turning back the clock, making patients look up to ten or more years younger.
Sun, stress, age and heredity all play a factor in skin elasticity and the aging process. Dr. Thomas Loeb, a leading plastic surgeon in NYC, will sit down with you for a private consultation to examine your skin and discuss your medical history and desired outcomes, all in an effort to evaluate whether a face or neck lift procedure is right for you. Both procedures help reduce or eliminate loose skin, make creases or fine lines disappear, and repair loss of muscle tone. To combat deeper wrinkles, a surgical lift may also be combined with non-surgical procedures like Botox, dermal fillers, and similar methods.
A neck lift can sometimes go hand-in-hand with a facelift procedure, extending the rejuvenating benefits down through the jowls and neck. These surgeries may be combined or performed separately. Dr. Loeb performs both with local anesthesia with sedation, and is an expert at minimizing scarring and maximizing results.
The recovery process for both procedures may involve mild swelling and bruising that can persist for up to three weeks. Some numbness may also be experienced. After the procedure, patients can return to work or other normal activities within 10-14 days.
