Every person’s facial features are unique as there are no two identical faces. For that reason, each facial plastic surgery patient’s needs and anatomy are different, but many share a common goal of wanting to rejuvenate their appearance. Facelift surgery is one of the most well-known facial procedures to address signs of aging and restore a more youthful look. With over 20 years of experience in plastic and reconstructive surgery, Dr. Fernando Burstein is an expert on facial structure and creates individual treatment plans to help his patients achieve natural-looking plastic surgery results.
Facelift surgery can improve visible signs of aging such as sagging skin, deep creases, excess fat deposits, and wrinkles. During the procedure, Dr. Burstein makes an incision to remove excess skin and tighten or reposition remaining skin and facial muscles. A traditional full facelift rejuvenates all areas of the face, but many patients can choose a mini facelift to target specific concerns. For example, patients bothered by forehead furrows or sagging brows can choose upper facelift or if they are concerned about jowls on the lower cheeks, they can choose a lower facelift.
To reduce visible signs of scars, Dr. Burstein creates incisions that can be hidden within the face’s natural creases or the hairline. He also performs laser skin resurfacing with the Sciton® Erbium laser to improve skin tone and appearance. Another option to improve facelift results includes TCA chemical peels, which can be externally applied to skin directly after the procedure to exfoliate damaged skin and induce collagen production. Along with these treatments, it is important to protect skin from sun exposure and maintain a healthy lifestyle. These combination non-surgical treatments and daily skin regimens are beneficial to maintaining optimal results since facelift surgery does not stop the aging process.
