Facelifts (rhytidectomy) are cosmetic procedures performed to improve the facial appearance and significantly reduce visible signs of aging. Various techniques, such as removal of excess fat and skin, tightening of the skin and underlying muscles and elevation of the facial tissues can be done to improve the contour of the face and neck. Facelifts vary in technique, and each procedure to improve the appearance of the face and neck are tailored to each individual patient’s needs and concerns. At Vantage Plastic Surgery, we offer various options in facelift surgery at our clinics on NYC’s Upper East Side and in Brooklyn.
Rhytidectomy is one of the most commonly requested plastic surgery procedures. The facelift is the gold standard of anti-aging plastic surgery – it is the only procedure that can remove and tighten loose skin permanently. While facelift surgery is a very successful way to look years younger, it is vital to have an experienced, skilled plastic surgeon perform this delicate procedure. Dr. Aleksandr Shteynberg is a double board certified plastic surgeon with many years of experience and proven expertise in completing natural-looking facelift procedures.
Look Years Younger with a Rhytidectomy
As you get older, the skin loses elasticity and gravity begins to take its toll on the face and neck. One of the more noticeable areas for aging are the jowls, jawline and upper neck. As the skin and tissues sag on the lower face, the jowls become heavier and more pronounced. The upper neck and under the chin begin to sag and show the signs of aging. Facelift surgery, or a rhytidectomy, addresses these changes, removing excess skin and tightening the lower face, jowls, jawline, under the chin and upper neck.
Dr. Shteynberg offers various options in facelift surgery that are customized to the patient. Younger patients with only the beginning signs of sagging or looser skin may only need a mini facelift to maintain a younger appearance. For more pronounced drooping and looser skin, a conventional facelift is needed with incisions placed in the hairline to access the skin and tissue of the lower face and upper neck. Dr. Shteynberg uses advanced techniques to ensure a natural appearance with discreet incisions for amazing results.
Upon the initial facelift consultation at Vantage Plastic Surgery, Dr. Shteynberg and his team will discuss the desired results and they will recommend and tailor the planned procedures to you individually. The procedures can vary from a traditional facelift with minimal scarring procedures, to adding a forehead or neck lift to address other aging issues.
