Thank you very much for your inquiry regarding facelift and neck rejuvenation surgery. To review, there are 3 types of facelifts: standard facelift, mini-facelift and mid-facelift.
The technique that I usually recommend is called the “optimal mobility line facelift”, which offers minimal undermining (trauma) to the face, however, with maximal suspension and results, but with minimal risk of a complication. The technique is related to each patient’s individual facial and neck anatomy. Some patients may also benefit from the addition of a neck rejuvenation procedure or anterior neck tightening procedure, formally known as a platysmaplasty. This procedure alleviates vertical muscle banding and removes excess skin. Additionally, excess fat can removed with gentle facial and neck liposuction.
I have 20 years of experience performing facelift surgery. I will review the benefits and limitations as well as surgical techniques of each of these methods. In my career, I have performed over a 1,000 facelifts and over 1,200 cosmetic eyelid surgeries. In my office, have a 98% patient satisfaction rate. For most facelift patients, I travel to your home the day after surgery to evaluate your convalescence and change the surgical dressing.
Most patients can have this procedure performed with oral sedation and local anesthesia, while others prefer the adjuvant of intravenous sedation, and if requested, general anesthesia. The duration of discomfort treated by narcotic analgesics is 3-5 days in over 90% of patients, mild swelling of the face and behind the ears from 7 – 10 days and mild bruising, usually behind the ears, which is resolved in nearly everyone by two weeks.
I completed a residency and fellowship at Stanford University Medical Center and remained there as a clinical professor for seven years. I am quadruple board certified including the he American Board of Otolaryngology Head & Neck Surgery, the American Board of Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, and the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery, scoring the highest score on the last two board oral examinations. I am founder of the Center of Excellence for Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery and practice in Las Vegas, Nevada.
I have published a peer reviewed journal article regarding the different techniques for facial rejuvenation, while I was at Stanford University Medical Center.
