Turn Back the Clock
Dr. Stephen Greenberg performs face lift surgery at his Long Island practice serving Manhattan and the greater New York City area to help patients look rested and rejuvenated.
Face lifts are performed on patients as they age to restore a youthful look. In general, a face lift will lift your sagging cheeks, help to eliminate jowls, and remove the redundant skin and fat from the neck. face lifts will correct and tighten both the skin and deeper muscular layers of the face. Unfortunately, nothing stops the aging process - not even a face lift, but a face lift can turn back the aging process by 10 years. Face lifts improve the visible signs of aging by removing the excess fat, tightening the muscles, and removing the extra sagging skin from your face and neck. Dr. Stephen Greenberg performs face lifts alone or in conjunction with eyelid surgery, laser surgery or other cosmetic procedures. Face lift surgery can make you look younger, but will not give you a totally different look. Dr. Greenberg strives for a natural look to the face with all face lift surgeries performed at his Long Island practice.
If You Are Considering A Face Lift…
face lifts are surgical procedures to rejuvenate the face.
A facelift is best for:
- Those who have deep creases and redundant skin between the nose and mouth
- Patients with jowl formation
- To give an uplift to the lower or midface
- To restore the natural contour of the neck
Face Lift Consultation
Dr. Greenberg will review the entire face lift procedure with you during yourinitial face lift consultation. He will determine which procedure will be most beneficial for your individual facial structure. Dr. Greenberg will also review various options and other cosmetic procedures that may be performed at the same time as your face lift. At times, an eyelift, brow lift, or laser procedure can be performed at the same time in order to obtain the most outstanding result possible. Restylane, Botox or other substances can often be utilized to obtain even better results for face lifts. Our full time esthetician will also review a comprehensive skin care program with you at the time of your face lift consultation.
Your Face lift Surgery…
Dr. Greenberg individualizes the facelift procedure to each patient, depending on your skin tone and bone structure. Dr. Greenberg believes strongly in a "natural" look, not a face that is "pulled too tight". The actual facelift procedure takes a few hours, and you will be able to go home with a nurse or with a family member after you have rested in recovery. The incision for a facelift is usually well-hidden and fades away nicely over time.
Face Lift Recovery
Usually there is very little pain after face lifts. Patients generally feel a sense of tightness and numbness that gradually returns to normal within several weeks. The face lift scars are usually pink for a short time before fading into the normal facial creases. You will have some bruising and swelling that will resolve within a few weeks, and you will be able to return to normal activities within a couple of weeks. A strap will be worn around your head for support for several days after face lift surgery. Dr. Greenberg will see you several times post-operatively within these weeks. It is impossible to know how long face lifts will "last" because patients continue to age at a variable rate after surgery. It is safe to say that your face will look more rejuvenated and youthful, making you look years younger. Dr. Greenberg places most of his face lift patients on a post-operative skin care regimen to help further diminish the signs of aging.
