Facial Rejuvenation Surgeries

Facelift Before and After PhotosThere are a variety of types of facial rejuvenation treatments and procedures. While non-surgical methods can be incredibly effective, in many cases, surgical methods prove to be the better approach and may produce better results. If your face has begun to show signs of aging such as sagging skin, fine lines, wrinkles, and folds, the following facial rejuvenation surgeries can help you achieve a more refreshed and youthful appearance.

Facelift Surgery

Facelift surgery can improve many signs of facial aging in the mid face, lower face, and even the neck. Various techniques including the mini-facelift, mid-face lift, deep plane facelift, neck liposuction, and Ultherapy® can correct the following issues:

  • Jowls
  • Sagging facial tissue
  • Turkey neck
  • Descending cheeks
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Wrinkles and lines in the mid and lower face

Dr. Pearlman can help you determine which facelift approach you need and whether you should combine your facelift with other procedures for more complete facial rejuvenation.

Silhouette InstaLift™

The Silhouette InstaLift™ is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that can lift the deeper layers of the facial skin to rejuvenate your appearance. The surgeon uses sutures with bidirectional cones to elevate and reposition the skin on your face. Over time, your body naturally absorbs the sutures and stimulates more collagen to improve skin quality.

Brow Lift Surgery

Brow lift surgery can lift and tighten the tissues of the upper face. This surgical approach corrects horizontal forehead lines, drooping brows, and brow furrows, and it may also improve upper eyelid hooding in some cases. Certain techniques can also elevate sagging cheeks. Patients who need a brow lift may feel that they look continually angry, sad, or tired. After the procedure, your forehead and brow area will appear lifted and smooth, erasing the negative expression that previously marred your appearance.

Blepharoplasty

Another facial rejuvenation surgery is blepharoplasty, more commonly called eyelid surgery. This procedure can correct sagging eyelids and displaced fat in the areas around the eyes. Patients can receive upper blepharoplasty, lower blepharoplasty, or both to fully rejuvenate the tissues around the eyes. The surgeon will adjust the muscle tissue, eliminate excess skin and upper eyelid hooding that may impair vision, soften fine lines, redistribute fat tissue, and reduce puffiness and bags around the eyes.

Each of these surgical procedures can be performed alone or may be combined with other procedures for complete facial rejuvenation. During your confidential, personal consultation, Dr. Pearlman can recommend which procedures will best help you achieve your aesthetic goals and desires.
Dr. Pearlman offers facial rejuvenation surgeries and many other plastic surgery procedures to enhance the appearance and rejuvenate the face and body. If you would like to learn more, please call (212) 223-8300 or fill out our online contact form to request your consultation today.

Am I Ready for Blepharoplasty?

Plastic surgery procedures offer many valuable benefits to the patient. Blepharoplasty, more commonly known as eyelid surgery, has multiple benefits that are both cosmetic and functional in nature. Eyelid surgery can improve your quality of life by correcting eyelid sagging, reducing puffiness around the eyes, producing a more rested and youthful appearance, improving vision sightlines, and yielding long-lasting results.

Corrects Eyelid Sagging

before-and-after-blepharoplastyUpper blepharoplasty, or upper eyelid surgery, can correct eyelid sagging. The procedure will remove excess skin and fat tissue from the upper eyelids and tighten the remaining tissues so that the eyelids do not sag around the eyes. This process can reduce wrinkles and create a more refreshed appearance.

Reduces Puffiness Around the Eyes

Puffiness around the eyes is often caused by fat pockets or displaced fat. Eyelid surgery for both the upper and lower eyelids can reduce puffiness around the eyes by removing or repositioning the fatty tissues. Manipulating the fat in this way can create a more natural appearance and eliminate bags beneath the eyes.

Produces a More Rested and Youthful Appearance

Eyelid sagging, puffiness, fat bulges, or other cosmetic challenges can cause you to look old, worn, and tired. Eyelid surgery refreshes the eyes by correcting each of these issues. After eyelid surgery, you will have a more rested and youthful appearance that can lead to greater self-confidence.

Improves Vision Sightlines

A significant functional benefit of upper blepharoplasty is improved vision sightlines. Some candidates for blepharoplasty, especially older candidates, experience severe eyelid hooding that impairs their vision. Eyelid surgery removes sagging eyelid skin and tightens the tissues around the eyes to correct eyelid hooding so that a full range of vision can be restored. An added benefit is that if eyelid hooding is affecting your vision, your medical insurance may cover all or a portion of the cost of your eyelid surgery.

Yields Long-Lasting Results

Eyelid surgery is a long-term solution that yields long-lasting results. After this procedure, most patients can expect their results to last for many years. Even though the natural aging process will continue, the benefits of blepharoplasty can persist long-term and beautify your point of view for years to come.
