Facelift & Neck Lift
Our faces serve as an excellent indicator of our age. However, years of sun damage and the natural aging process eventually lead to wrinkled, sagging skin in the lower face and neck, which can make us look older than we are. The neck lift and facelift in New York are facial surgeries designed to tighten loose skin for a younger-looking, well-defined facial appearance. These procedures are often performed together for the best possible results.
Is A Facelift And Neck Lift Right for You?
Facial muscles slowly weaken through time and skin loses its elasticity, causing parts of the face to droop or sag. The neck lift and facelift in New York are best for men and women suffering from facial signs of aging in the neck and lower half of the face to treat problems such as:
- Jowls (loose skin along the jawline)
- Deep nasolabial folds
- Sagging facial skin
- Neck folds
Not all patients will require both a facelift and a neck lift. Discussing your goals and expectations with Dr. Fugo will determine if you will require both or just one. Other facial surgeries also can be combined with a face or neck lift to address problems, such as forehead lines or droopy eyelids.
Your Facelift/Neck Lift Surgery With Dr. Fugo
Your facelift/neck lift will be performed as an outpatient procedure by Dr. Fugo. Your surgery will consist of incisions made in the natural creases of your face and ears in order to minimize the visibility of post-surgical scars. From these incisions, Dr. Fugo will tighten the underlying facial tissue and muscles to enhance the contours and definition of your face. Before closing the incisions, Dr. Fugo will trim away any excess skin to improve the appearance of sagging, lines and/or wrinkles.
Recovering From Your Facial Surgery
A facelift/neck lift will typically require about 10 to 14 days of recovery before you are able to return to work and your normal routine.
While most of your stitches will be removed about a week after surgery, it may take some time to realize the full results of your procedure, but swelling and incisions will continue to fade over time to reveal a more youthful appearance.
