The Facelift Procedure
Facial surgery is performed in our accredited Staten Island, NYC surgery suite under either IV sedation or general anesthesia. Every effort is made to make the procedure undetectable.
The incision is started in the hairline and when it comes down toward the ear, it goes inside the ear a little bit.
This allows there to be no incision seen on the cheek. As it goes behind the ear, the incision stays in the crease and gently courses back into the hairline so it is hidden.
After the skin is lifted, the muscle and fatty tissue is significantly tightened. In the middle of the neck, excess fat is removed and the muscles are tightly sutured together. This treats the band that many patients have in their neck. Then, the excess skin is trimmed, while putting no tension on the skin.
Since there is no tension, the resulting incision lines should practically disappear. Also, since the skin is not pulled tight, our patients do not get that “wind-blown” appearance. When the surgery is complete, patients are discharged home the same day.
