Long Island's Premier Facial Rejuvenation Center

Our acclaimed plastic surgeons Dr. James Romanelli, Dr. Yee Cheng Low, and Dr. John Layliev perform a full array of facial rejuvenation treatments. One of the most popular surgeries at North Shore Cosmetic Surgery in Long Island is a custom facelift. This procedure focuses on specific areas of the face to address loose skin and wrinkles to create a younger, softer, more youthful appearance.

What can a facelift do for me?

A custom facelift in Long Island can restore the mid-face area and cheeks, the bottom portion including the mouth, jowls, neck, and more for an overall younger look. The facelift method used depends on your desired outcome, the health and condition of your skin, the degree of skin laxity, age, lifestyle, and other influential factors. The goal is to produce a natural-appearing result that’s soft and beautiful.

Ideal candidates for facelift surgery

Candidates for facelift surgery are frustrated by visible lines and facial wrinkles, with concerns in either the face as a whole or the upper, mid, or lower sections. A facelift can target many facial aspects, depending on your unique needs.

It’s also important to note that age doesn’t always define when the appropriate time is to have a facelift. There are countless factors and concerns, in addition to numerous lift methods, depending on the areas of the face that requires correction.

The facelift approach chosen will be different for patients who are 40 years old vs. those in their 60s and 70s. Skin elasticity is one of the critical factors in the decision-making process. Patients should be physically healthy, a nonsmoker, and have realistic expectations.

How is a facelift performed?

Depending on your individual needs, there are several types of facelifts available. Some facelifts rejuvenate the upper area of the face, while other lifts focus on the lower two-thirds. Some procedures are a bit more invasive than others. It’s very common for women and men to undergo a brow lift, forehead lift, or BOTOX® and fillers to enhance the results. Some of the more known facelift methods include:

Full Facelift

A common surgery for older adults, a full or “traditional” facelift generally incorporates an incision along the hairline, extending down to the temples, stopping near the base of the ears. The deeper layer of facial muscles is gently stretched and tightened to create a lifted look, which smooths excessive lines and wrinkles. The traditional facelift is appropriate for women and men with more extensive facial aging. During a full facelift, many treatments may be blended, including upper or lower blepharoplasty to address the eyes or neck reduction for the lower region.

Mid Facelift

The mid-facelift (cheeks) addresses the sagging near the cheekbones and the upper jaw. The mid-facelift works nicely for those who seek improvement to the middle or lower region of the face and want to create a more defined jawline by removing jowls.

Lower Facelift

This facelift approach corrects the neck and chin and sometimes the jowls. Methods of nonsurgical nature, such as laser skin tightening or Kybella, can also be applied to create a youthful, defined jawline and a softer, tighter neck.

What to expect from facelift surgery

No matter which facelift approach is right for you, the primary goal is to create a gorgeous and visually-appealing result. Most facelift surgeries are performed with general anesthesia. The time frame of the procedure depends on the extent of the surgery and whether other treatments are combined. Following your facelift, you can expect swelling and puffiness, slight to moderate pain, and soreness, which can all be controlled by prescription pain medication. Most patients feel and physically look better after two to four weeks. You can expect a softer, more youthful appearance that appears natural and refreshed. Overall, your face looks younger and subtly rejuvenated.
