A facelift, or rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure that improves visible signs of aging in the face and neck, such as: Relaxation of the skin of the face causing sagging, deepening of the fold lines between the nose and corner of the mouth, and fat that has fallen or has disappeared
Liposuction Patient 30
45-54 year old man treated with Chin Liposuction. These procedures are performed in just 60 to 90 minutes in the office, under local anesthesia. Patients go home the same day as surgery, do not need any narcotics postop for pain control, can get back to work and exercise in less than 24 hours, and results are seen immediately. Chin liposuction or a mini neck lift is perfect for anyone who is not satisfied with the appearance of their chin and neck. It can help reduce neck fat, tighten loose neck skin, remove neck bands, sharpen the jawline, improve the angle between your neck and chin, and other factors.

55-64 year old man
treated with mini-facelift, neck lift, and neck liposuction. Patient is 6’3”, 215 lbs. The entire procedure was performed through a 3 centimeter incision, just behind the chin. The procedure involves IDEAL liposuction, removal and/or reconstruction of abnormal neck muscles, and removal of extra neck skin. This type of procedure is IDEAL for the vast majority of us, who just don’t like our neck! We use a proprietary technique called IDEAL Lipo as the cornerstone of our liposuction and fat grafting procedures. First off, these procedures use all-FDA approved surgical and fat transfer instrumentation. They are typically performed in the office, with only local anesthesia (although patients can request deeper sedation, if they so desire). We typically use Laser Liposuction or VASER (ultrasound) to reduce dense, fibrous fat, and stimulate collagen formation; Radiofrequency-based skin tightening (Pelleve) to maximize skin contraction; and High Energy Radial Pulse Technology, RF, or subcision (Cellfina) to treat cellulite. Patients go home the day of surgery; typically do not use any narcotics postop for pain control, and are back to light exercise and work 48 hours after their procedures. In my practice, we specifically evaluate patients for these additional treatments, and select the appropriate treatment based on their skin quality, amount of fat, previous treatment(s), and surgical goals.
