Many patients, especially older patients, are often concerned about sagging skin and wrinkles that contribute to a tired, aged look. Face lift surgery is one of the most common cosmetic procedures to create a more youthful appearance by removing sagging skin and tightening areas to smooth wrinkles and lines. Many cosmetic procedures such as blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) and rhinoplasty are available to directly address facial features. While facelifts provide overall rejuvenation for the entire face, many patients who do not require a full facelift can choose a mini facelift procedure to target specific areas that show more prominent signs of aging.
Every patient ages differently. While some patients may be concerned with marionette lines or crow’s feet, others want to address drooping jowls or brow furrows. Double board certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Fernando Burstein performs mini facelifts, also known as partial facelifts, on the mid, upper, and lower face to target each patient’s aesthetic needs. Mid facelifts target the center of the face to smooth skin on the cheeks, upper mouth, and nasolabial folds. An upper facelift is similar to a brow lift, in which it eliminates sagging skin and wrinkles on the forehead and eyebrow area. To eliminate sagging skin on the jowls and chin, Dr. Burstein trims excess skin and repositions fat in a lower facelift for a more youthful appearance.
Face lift patients are often concerned about achieving natural-looking facelift results as they do not want to appear “windblown” or have disproportionate results or visible scarring. With over 25 years of facial plastic surgery experience, Dr. Burstein conceals incisions within patients’ hairlines and natural skin folds to minimize scarring. He also observes each patient’s facial structure and thoroughly discusses the procedure during consultations to ensure a desired and natural-looking result. Minimally invasive cosmetic procedures such as chemical peels or laser skin resurfacing can also enhance and prolong cosmetic surgery results.
