NYC Facelift Surgeon

Facelifts (rhytidectomy) are cosmetic procedures performed to improve the facial appearance and significantly reduce visible signs of aging.  At Vantage Plastic Surgery, located on NYC’s Upper East Side and in Brooklyn, Dr. Aleksandr Shteynberg, a double board-certified plastic surgeon, spearheads a range of facelift options tailored to meet the unique needs and concerns of each individual patient.

Facelift Techniques and Customization

Facelifts are a culmination of various techniques, involving the removal of excess fat and skin, tightening of both the skin and underlying muscles, and the elevation of facial tissues. The ultimate goal is to sculpt and contour the face and neck, restoring a more youthful and vibrant appearance. Dr. Shteynberg recognizes that each patient’s aging process is unique, and as such, each facelift procedure is meticulously customized to address specific concerns and achieve natural-looking results.

Facelift Surgery with Dr. Shteynberg

In the realm of plastic surgery, facelifts hold a distinguished position as the gold standard for anti-aging procedures. The facelift is unparalleled in its ability to permanently remove and tighten loose skin, providing a lasting solution to combat the effects of aging. However, the success of a facelift procedure hinges significantly on the expertise and experience of the performing surgeon. Dr. Aleksandr Shteynberg, with his double board certification, extensive experience, and proven track record, emerges as a trusted expert in the delicate art of facelift surgery.

The Impact of Facelift Surgery

As individuals age, the skin undergoes a natural loss of elasticity, succumbing to the gravitational forces that manifest in sagging facial tissues. The jowls, jawline, and upper neck are often the most noticeable areas affected by these changes. Facelift surgery, or rhytidectomy, intervenes precisely at these points, removing excess skin and strategically tightening the lower face, jowls, jawline, under the chin, and upper neck. The result is a transformative journey that turns back the hands of time, offering a more rejuvenated and youthful appearance.
