Facelifts

Unfortunately as we grow older, visible side-effects of aging present themselves in the form of dark circles, fine lines, saggy jowls and depressed cheeks. The effects of gravity cause us to lose skin elasticity, developing forehead creases and deep wrinkles. Board certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Milgrim passionately and naturally sculpts patients’ faces to achieve younger, revitalized, plump features. As with other procedures, Dr. Milgrim believes in customizing his surgeries to preserve a natural, unoperated look post-surgery. His surgical techniques, combined with dermal fillers in some cases, restore both volume and confidence. By focusing on minimally invasive face lifts, he creates long-lasting results with less bruising and downtime.

Most facelifts Dr. Milgrim performs are based on the gold-standard SMAS lift. He was trained by New York’s most prominent plastic surgeons to perform SMAS lifts in which he repositions drooping jowls and upper neck tissues to give the jawline the trim look you once had. In certain patients, Dr. Milgrim will recommend other types of facelifts, specifically mini lifts and sling lifts.

Before, During and After Your Face Lift

  • Before: Dr. Milgrim meets with each of his patient for a detailed consultation where it is determined if you are a candidate for a Face Lift or other, non-surgical treatments. The doctor will discuss your individual goals, make sure your expectations are in one line with what can be achieved, prepare and explain a surgical plan. You will be given pre and post-operative instructions.
  • During: In most cases, prior to surgery you will be administered with local anesthesia to promote comfort and avoid the risk of general/sedative anesthesia. Dr. Milgrim factors in the amount of change You’d like to see in your face and draws incision lines accordingly. Generally, the surgeon places incisions along the hairline ending at the lower scalp to conceal scarring. Throughout the procedure, Dr. Milgrim removes fat while simultaneously lifting muscle and re-draping loose skin to re-contour your features. He utilizes sutures and skin adhesives to safely mend the incision sites.
  • After: There may be slight bruising and swelling as your incisions heal. Our well-trained and compassionate staff will be by your side throughout your seven to ten day recovery period. We are happy to say patient will be back to work within two weeks of a typical Face Lift procedure.
