Beautiful brunette with clean face

There aren’t many people in New Jersey who LIKE to age. Of course, all the knowledge and wisdom are great, but the loss of elasticity and vibrancy in your face is usually considered a downer for most men and women. If you are tired of looking older than you feel, and are ready to talk to Dr. Herbstman about a facelift, call his office today. It’s only through a careful examination that you will be able to know everything you need to know about how a facelift can help your specific signs of aging.

When Dr. Herbstman sees patients about a facelift, one of the biggest concerns they have is regarding the incisions needed for a facelift and where they will be placed. That’s exactly what we will discuss today, so keep reading to learn more. 

What You Need To Know About The Facelift Procedure

The medical community refers to a facelift as a rhytidectomy. This procedure is used to provide New Jersey men and women with relief from physical signs of aging on their face. More specifically, during a facelift, Dr. Herbstman can provide correction for:

  • Loss of volume in your cheeks
  • Deep lines and wrinkles around your mouth and nose
  • Sagging skin that causes those awful jowls

During the facelift procedure, Dr. Herbstman will remove excess skin from your face. This removal and tightening process allows his patients to have a refreshed and rejuvenated appearance they can be confident in.

Many people express concern over looking like they’ve had work done or waking up with the dreaded “windblown” look that was common in years past. Dr. Herbstman’s patients are not to worry. With over 20 years of experience providing New Jersey residents with cosmetic relief, he has the skill and precision needed to provide natural-looking results for his patients.

It’s important to point out that a facelift will not correct EVERY sign of aging on your face but will only address the lower two-thirds. If you want to have rejuvenation from top to bottom, consider combining your facelift with a brow lift, eyelid surgery, or a neck lift.

The Incisions

As we mentioned above, where the incisions will be placed is a big concern for many of Dr. Herbstman’s patients. And rightfully so. No one wants to wake up from their facelift with scars that tell the world they’ve had work done. That’s why Dr. Herbstman performs each of his facelift surgeries with as few incisions as possible, and when he needs to use larger incisions, he is careful to hide them well.

  • Incisions For A Traditional Facelift: The incision needed for this type of facelift is long and will begin just in front of the ear and extend up into the hairline. From there Dr. Herbstman will continue the incision down behind the ear, and it will end at the bottom of the ear, within the hairline. As you can see, even for New Jersey patients who require a more aggressive approach, Dr. Herbstman will use his skill to hide your scar.
  • Incisions For A Limited Facelift: This type of facelift requires only a series of small incisions placed within the hairline behind the ear. This method will allow for minimal scarring and quicker recovery time.
