Facelift / Neck Rejuvenation – BEAUTY BY DESIGN, Las Vegas
Dear Prospective Patient,
Thank you very much for your inquiry regarding facelift and neck rejuvenation surgery. There are three types of
facelifts: standard facelift, mini-facelift and mid-facelift.
The need for one technique over another 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 using small cannulas.
I have 18 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 nearly 1,000 facelifts and over 600
cosmetic eyelid surgeries. In my office, have a 97% patient satisfaction rate. For most facelift patients, I travel to
your home the day after surgery to evaluate your convalescence and change your surgical dressing.
Most patients can have this procedure performed with oral sedation and local anesthesia, while others prefer
the adjuvant of intravenous sedation. Rarely, (<3%) of patients require drains. The duration of discomfort aided
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 American Board of Facial Plastic &
Reconstructive Surgery, the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery, and the American Board of Otolaryngology
Head & Neck Surgery, scoring the highest score on the last two board oral examinations. I am founder the
Center of Excellence for Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery and have a practice in both Las Vegas, Nevada
and Laguna Beach, California.
I have published a peer reviewed journal article regarding the different techniques for facial rejuvenation, while
I was at Stanford University Medical Center. I am presently completing another clinical study comparing the
results between standard and mini-facelift surgery. I just completed a six month training fellowship teaching an
Italian fellow on all aspects of facial rejuvenation including facelift and neck tightening procedures.
During your initial free consultation, we will discuss your esthetic concerns and discuss your treatment options.

forward to meeting you in my office.
Sincerely & Respectfully,
Robert J Troell,MD, FACS
