Facelift Q & A

What is a facelift? 

As you age, your facial skin may start to sag and droop. A facelift is a surgical procedure that helps to tighten up the skin and muscles in your face for a more youthful appearance. There are several different types of facelift procedures.

  • A lower facelift focuses on rejuvenating the skin around the mouth, jawline, and neck.
  • A mid facelift corrects sagging skin around the lower eyelids and cheeks.
  • A full facelift combines the two procedures. It also includes a brow lift, which tightens the skin around your upper eyelids, brows, and forehead.

Dr. Craig Foster's practice also offers a mini-facelift. This procedure is designed for patients in their thirties and forties who wish to address the first signs of aging. Dr. Foster has nicknamed this procedure the "weekend facelift" due to its short recovery time.

What happens during a facelift procedure?

Before receiving your facelift, you receive an in-depth consultation with Dr. Foster. During this consultation, Dr. Foster asks about your aesthetic goals and medical history. Depending on your needs and preferences, he may suggest a less invasive procedure like microdermabrasion or a chemical peel.

If Dr. Foster agrees that a facelift is right for you, he provides guidance on which procedure will best meet your needs. All procedures take place at Dr. Foster's comfortable and private surgical facilities in Manhattan. Before the procedure, you receive anesthesia or a sedative to help you relax.

During the procedure, Dr. Foster makes precise incisions around your hairline, ears, or scalp. He may reposition certain tissues or lift muscles to tighten up sagging skin. Dr. Foster then adjusts the contour of your skin and removes any excess. Finally, he closes the incision using sutures or a skin adhesive.

What kind of results can I expect?

The results of plastic surgery depend on the expertise and skill of the surgeon. Dr. Craig Foster is a world-renowned plastic surgeon with extensive experience in reconstructive surgery and otolaryngology. He provides his patients with remarkable, natural-looking results.

Dr. Foster understands that plastic surgery is not a one-size-fits-all procedure. He develops personalized treatment plans that allow each patient to achieve their personal aesthetic goals.
