The facelift is a versatile procedure that can be tailored to your anatomy, so Dr. Adam Stein at Stein Plastic Surgery can give you naturally beautiful results that enhance your most striking features. In some cases, this may involve adding complementary procedures to tie together improvements to several treatment areas in a single rejuvenation plan.
What Treatments can be Combined with a Facelift?
Modern-day facelifts have vastly improved on the techniques that were once used. Dr. Stein has an expert understanding of facial anatomy, the nuances of expressions, and how those maintain your unique personality. A facelift aims to remodel muscles and tissues that have shifted with age into a more youthful position, restore lost volume, and remove excess skin to give you a smooth, firm complexion with minimized wrinkles.
The facelift works incredibly well with other treatments. Many patients combine a brow lift with their facelift to ensure the features of the upper portion of their face are in balance with the remodeling in the rest of their tissues. For others, brightening their eyes with an eyelid lift brings the results of their facelift together. Some may also have a rhinoplasty performed simultaneously to achieve their specific aesthetic goals.
Incorporating facial implants into your facelift is another way to shape more youthful contours and improve your overall facial harmony or enhance your best features.
Am I a Good Candidate?
If you’re concerned about shifting facial features due to age, the laxity of your skin, or the toll age is taking through deepening lines or jowls, a facelift and complementary procedures could be what you’re looking for. The best candidates for cosmetic facial procedures are patients in good general health who have realistic expectations for what their treatment plan can achieve. Dr. Stein can answer all your questions during your comprehensive consultation.
What is a Customized Facelift Procedure Like?
Every facial procedure Dr. Stein performs takes place in our accredited surgical suite, where you can receive treatment in comfort and privacy. We’ll make you comfortable with the anesthesia that best works for your combination of procedures. Dr. Stein will carry out the treatment plan he’s developed for you. Once he’s satisfied, your treatment area will be bandaged, and you’ll be monitored as you awaken in recovery. You will be released to recuperate at home with detailed aftercare instructions as guidance.
What Results Can I Expect?
Because our understanding of facelift results has graduated beyond tightening of the skin to deeper facial tissues, Dr. Stein can shape the layers beneath the skin for pleasing, long-lasting results. You’ll experience some bruising and swelling for 1-2 weeks after your procedure, but around 2 weeks, you’ll begin to feel more like yourself. Your skin will be firmer, and lines and wrinkles will be smoothed away. If you’ve also had a brow lift or eyelid lift, your eyes will appear more alert and refreshed. With a rhinoplasty, your nose will be sculpted more to your liking and better balanced with your facial shape. The addition of facial implants will enhance your chin or cheekbones, and overall, you’ll appear younger and revitalized. Stein Plastic Surgery patients typically enjoy the outcome from their customized facelift for years to come.
