Face Lifts in NYC
Facelift is a surgical procedure that removes excess facial skin to make the face appear younger. However, the aging face does not only lose skin elasticity and develops looser skin, but also loses much facial fat and the muscle of the face become stiffer and shorter. Additional procedures that may be necessary to achieve the best results include: neck lift, blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery), neck liposuction, autologous fat injections, forehead lift, brow lifting, chemical or laser peel, cheek augmentation, chin augmentation or reduction.
How is a facelift performed?
A traditional facelift procedure is performed through an incision starting in the hair or hairline above and in front of the ear The incision is run downward in front or inside of the ear, comes under the ear and then upward behind the ear ending in the hair or hairline behind the ear. The skin is lifted off the underlying muscle. The underlying muscle and fascia can be tightened with stitches if it is necessary. The skin is pulled back and upward and the excess skin removed. The skin is approximated with sutures and skin staples in the hairline. Bandage wrap is applied.
In Dr. Grossman’s opinion face lifting should be performed only in individuals who have lost significant amount of weight or individuals with very poor skin tone. This group of patients will require excess skin removal in the face and neck. This results in a tighter appearance of the face and neck area. For best results patients must have a combined procedure of a Face Lifting and Fat Grafting (Fat Transfer)so that the patients can look as good as when they were much younger. Face lifts alone do not make patients look like themselves, even though they might look tighter.
In healthy and active individuals who have maintained their weight throughout life, Dr. Grossman recommends Fat Grafting alone, since it is the only way to make the person look like they used to at a much younger age in addition all the risks of the face lift are avoided.
Dr. Grossman has been performing facial rejuvenation surgery primarily though Fat Grafting Technique since 1993, which has allowed him to create much younger looking patients with permanent and natural looking results, without the risks of a face lift or the scars associated with extensive facial surgery.
Our patients can generally go out in to the real world the day after facial rejuvenation without the scars or bruising.
Ever since 1993 Dr. Grossman has performed thousands of Fat Transfer procedures with much higher satisfaction rate as compared to the patients who have had face lifts alone.
