What Is a Facelift Like?

It is standard for a facelift to be done under general anesthesia. Incisions will be made in inconspicuous areas of the face, usually along the hairline. The skin will be loosed from its attachment and the underlying tissues will be tightened to make sure that the effects will last a long time and mask the incision scars.

You are an artist!

As a “60 Something” retiree my reasons for having a facelift and eyelid surgery were to look better, not different. My friends, former colleagues at work and even my sister who lives in another state have all commented that retirement must be agreeing with me because I look great! I am so pleased with my natural appearance, you are an artist! I have never felt so cared for as a patient and cared about as a person as I did with you, Dr. Hoffman. You have a wonderful gift. I will be pleased to share my experience with other patients who are anxious about facelifts and eyelid surgery. Sincerely, Barbara L.

Neck Lift

In their 30’s and 40’s, most people experience some loss of definition in the jawline and neck. Fat deposits under the chin can lead to a bulky look often referred to as a “double chin”. A neck lift procedure can tighten the muscles of the neck and remove excess fat, restoring a more youthful look. For women in there 30?s to early 50?s this procedure can postpone the need for a facelift. Patient age and their skin elasticity are the key factors determining whether this procedure is suitable for a given patient. Recovery is more rapid than that of a facelift and incisions are small and inconspicuous.
