Types of Face Lifts | New York Plastic SurgeonYou may find yourself looking in the mirror realizing that you feel more youthful than you look. As you age, the laxity of your skin can increase and the volume of fat in your face can decrease. This combination is mainly responsible for the appearance of the aging face.

If ridding yourself of the sagging skin and wrinkles and improving your overall look is something you're interested in, you may want to consider a face lift. All types of face lifts will provide you with lasting results, but our experienced Manhattan plastic surgeon can help you determine which type of face lift you'd be an ideal candidate for.

Our Board Certified plastic surgeon can provide the following types of face lifts:

In a typical face lift, our New York plastic surgeon will lift two-thirds of your face so you’ll experience rejuvenation in the following areas:

  • Jaw
  • Jowels
  • Neck
  • Cheeks
  • Lines that run from your nose to your mouth
  • Lines that run from your mouth to your chin

A mini-face lift may be something you choose because of the benefits it can offer. Not only can it be done to correct sagging in the middle of your face or the deep creases that can form around your nose and mouth, but it has a smaller incision than a regular face lift and requires less recovery time. It is not typically done to aid with sagging skin in the neck area as a typical face lift would be better for that.

Both facelift options can give you lasting results and a youthful, rejuvenated look that you’ll love. If you’re interested in a face lift, please contact JUVA Skin & Laser Center today or call (212) 688-5882.
