At Contemporary Plastic Surgery of East Brunswick, New Jersey, we help men and women achieve their facial and body aesthetic goals. There are many situations where the only solution is cosmetic treatments via surgical interventions, and we are dedicated to providing treatments designed to make dramatic improvements in one’s appearance.
If your self-esteem is suffering due to increased skin laxity and the unwanted signs of aging developing on the face, our Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Robert A. Herbstman, may recommend the facelift treatment.
A facelift, also known as a rhytidectomy, is an elective surgical procedure that lifts and tightens any excess and sagging facial tissues to restore a more youthful appearance. As we age, the skin loses its elasticity and begins to droop, resulting in wrinkles, jowls, and deep folds around the nose and mouth, starting around the age of 40. The facelift procedure addresses these concerns by removing excess skin and fat, repositioning facial muscles, and smoothing out deep creases to give the face a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.
A facelift is suitable for older men and women experiencing signs of aging in the facial area, such as sagging skin, wrinkles, jowls, or deep creases. Those with good skin elasticity tend to be candidates for short scar, less invasive techniques, as their skin has enough elasticity to adapt to the new contours of the face. It is also important for candidates to have realistic expectations of the results that can be achieved with plastic surgery and be in good overall health.
Patients showing the first signs of aging might be better suited for less invasive procedures before undergoing plastic surgery. Fine lines and wrinkles are often easily addressed with cosmetic injectables such as dermal fillers, collagen stimulators, and neuromodulators such as Botox. These are not permanent, but they provide long-lasting results that smooth aging skin and improve overall appearance for months or years at a time. More conservative options are always recommended before complete surgical intervention.
Are you considering a facelift? Are you seeking a treatment that effectively tightens facial skin and significantly reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and folds caused by aging? Have alternative treatments, such as cosmetic injectables, been failing to provide results?
If you are considering plastic surgery to achieve your personal cosmetic goals, we invite you to call Contemporary Plastic Surgery to find out if you are a proper candidate for this and other treatments available at our state-of-the-art facility.
