Liquid Facelift New York
Liquid Facelift for Youthful appearance
What is a Liquid Facelift?
A Liquid Facelift is a cosmetic procedure that involves injecting dermal fillers into specific areas of the face to address signs of aging, such as reduction of sagging skin, correction of facial folds and dynamic wrinkles, and restoration of volume loss in areas of the face.
Liposuction is an excellent solution for those looking to remove stubborn pockets of fat that have not responded to diet and exercise. However, the cost of the procedure may be a concern for many people considering it. Let us explain how liposuction cost is calculated and what factors contribute to the final price.
It allows patients to achieve a naturally rejuvenated appearance
The procedure utilizes a combination of dermal fillers, such as hyaluronic acid, to enhance the contours of the face, restore volume, and smooth out wrinkles and fine lines. This results in a youthful, refreshed appearance that is both subtle and long-lasting.
It is a less invasive option compared to a traditional facelift
Unlike surgery, there is no need for general anesthesia, incisions, or extensive recovery time. Instead, the procedure is done using local anesthesia, and patients can return to normal activities immediately after the procedure.

HOW DO LIQUID FACELIFTS COMPARE TO TRADITIONAL SURGICAL FACELIFTS?
Liquid facelifts and traditional surgical facelifts are two distinct cosmetic procedures used to address the signs of aging to achieve a youthful appearance. While both procedures have their unique benefits and limitations, they differ in terms of invasiveness, recovery time, and overall effectiveness.

Minimal to no downtime and quicker recovery time, allowing patients to return to normal activities almost immediately
Can provide subtle, natural-looking results
No general anesthesia required
Less expensive compared to traditional facelift surgery
Typically requires multiple treatment sessions to achieve desired results
Effects are temporary and may require touch-up treatments to maintain results
Not suitable for patients with significant sagging or loose skin, who may benefit more from a traditional facelift

Ideal for patients with significant skin laxity
Results may be more noticeable and can last for many years
Invasive procedure requiring general anesthesia and incisions
Longer recovery time of 2 weeks to 6 months

What type of dermal fillers are used in a liquid facelift, and where are they injected?
Types of facial fillers used in Liquid Facelift:
Hyaluronic Acid Fillers
Hyaluronic acid fillers are some of the most popular dermal fillers used in liquid facelift procedure. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the body that helps to hydrate and plump the skin. Hyaluronic acid fillers, such as Juvéderm, Restylane, and Belotero, are commonly used to add volume to the cheeks, lips, and under-eye area, and to smooth fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth and eyes.
Poly L Lactic Acid
Poly L lactic acid are synthetic dermal fillers that stimulate collagen production, a naturally occurring protein in the body that gives skin its youthful elasticity. Poly L lactic acid fillers, such as Sculptra, are commonly used to restore volume to the cheeks, temples, and jawline, and to smooth deep folds and wrinkles.
Calcium hydroxyapatite is a mineral-based dermal filler that provides long-lasting results. Calcium hydroxyapatite fillers, such as Radiesse, are commonly used to enhance the cheekbones and jawline, and to smooth moderate-to-severe wrinkles and folds around the mouth and nose.
Other non-surgical procedures
This non-surgical facelift also combines other treatments like neuromodulators, such as Botox, to target dynamic wrinkles like frown lines, smile lines, or crow’s feet.
At Greenberg Cosmetic Surgery and Dermatology, Dr. Stephen T. Greenberg and the team provide customized liquid facelift treatments to meet the needs and goals unique to each patient.
A Customized Treatment Plan
Our team works with the patient to develop a customized treatment plan that addresses their specific concerns, such as sagging skin, facial folds, or dynamic wrinkles. Different types of injectables may be used to target specific areas of the face.
The procedure begins with applying a numbing component to the areas of the face that will be injected with dermal fillers and neuromodulators. This helps minimize any discomfort during the procedure.
The Duration Of The Procedure
The duration of the procedure will depend on the extent of the treatment plan but typically lasts around 30-60 minutes. After the procedure, patients can immediately return to their normal activities with minimal downtime.
The Personalized Attention
One of the benefits of a liquid facelift at Greenberg Cosmetic Surgery and Dermatology is the personalized attention and care that each patient receives. Our team works closely with patients to ensure they achieve the natural-looking and more youthful appearance they desire.
Recovery After Liquid Facelift Procedure
The recovery process after a liquid facelift is typically quick and easy, with minimal discomfort and downtime. You may experience minor redness and bruise at the injection sites, but this is normal and should resolve within a few days.
To minimize any risks, it is important to properly care for the injection sites following the procedure. You should avoid strenuous activity, including exercise and heavy lifting, for a few days after the procedure and expose the areas to the sun or extreme temperatures as little as possible. You should also avoid smoking and maintain a healthy lifestyle, including proper skin care and hydration, for optimal results.
Most people can return to their normal activities within a few days of the procedure, although it is important to follow your provider’s instructions and avoid activities that may cause excessive stress to the areas.
You should also schedule follow-up appointments with Dr. Greenberg to monitor your progress and discuss any concerns you may have. It is important to know that results may vary and that a liquid facelift is not a permanent solution. Maintenance treatments may be necessary to maintain optimal results, and our team will discuss this with you at the follow-up appointments.

Who is a good candidate for a liquid facelift?
A liquid facelift can be an ideal choice for people who are looking for a minimally invasive, non-surgical alternative to a traditional facelift.
Ideal candidates for a liquid facelift have:
Mild to moderate signs of aging, such as wrinkles, fine lines, and loss of volume in the face
Good overall health
Realistic expectations for the results of the procedure
A commitment to maintaining a healthy lifestyle, including proper skincare, to prolong the results of the procedure
It is important to work with a reputable American board-certified plastic surgeon
who can provide you with an accurate estimate of the costs involved and can help you to plan your treatment accordingly.
When considering the cost of liposuction, it is essential to remember that this is an investment in yourself. By choosing a skilled and experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Greenberg, you increase your chances of achieving desired results that can last a lifetime. Moreover, by prioritizing quality over cost, you can reduce the risk of complications and the need for revision procedures, which can be much more costly in the long run.
Aftercare and Maintenance of Liquid Facelift Results
To maintain the results of your liquid facelift, it is important to follow the instructions given by our team carefully. This may include avoiding strenuous activity for a few days, properly caring for the injection sites to minimize risks, and maintaining a healthy lifestyle for optimal results.
In addition, you may need to schedule maintenance injections every several months to several years to keep your results looking their best. Combining your liquid facelift with other non-surgical procedures, such as skin resurfacing or laser treatments, can help to enhance your results and extend their longevity.
Maintaining collagen production is also important for maintaining your liquid facelift results. Collagen is a naturally occurring protein in the skin that provides structure and support, and it can be lost over time due to aging, sun exposure, and other factors. Maintaining collagen production can help to keep your skin looking youthful and revitalized.
On average, a liquid facelift can last for several months to several years. However, the exact duration of your results will depend on several factors, including your skin type, age, and lifestyle habits. By following the instructions provided by our team and scheduling regular maintenance treatments, you can help to extend the life of your liquid facelift results.

Dr. Greenberg performs this procedure on many teens and adults every week. Rhinoplasty can now be performed to look natural, without the “operated on” appearance to the nose.
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.
A forehead lift will remove or reduce horizontal creases across the forehead, furrows between the eyebrows and sagging eyebrows. Due to the aging process, genetics, stress or muscle activity, facial muscles and tissues can loose elasticity causing wrinkles and furrowed lines.
