You may be among the scores of plastic surgery patients accustomed to compliments about your “ageless” countenance. If the acclaims have stopped and you’ve noticed facial sagging and a flabbier neck, maybe it’s time for a redo.
With improved surgical techniques, a properly performed facelift can last longer than a decade. At the Robert Zubowski MD Center for Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery in Paramus, NJ, we routinely perform primary and secondary facelifts.
Reasons for a do-over are as diverse as the personalities of the patients who request them. But at our Paramus, NJ Center, many of our patients cite two reasons most often. The first is obvious. Time marches on, and after years of enjoyment, age has caught up with the initial benefits of the procedure. The other reason is that the patient was never happy with the original results.
Some plastic surgeons perform the same procedure in the same manner on every patient, not taking into account the physical uniqueness of each face. Others may not properly evaluate the underlying musculature, working with it to provide a longer lasting result. And still others may simply tighten the face and thin the neck to give a less natural, “wind swept” look. With over 20 years of experience in plastic surgery and general surgery (we are board certified in both), we’ve developed an artistic eye that allows us to customize each patient’s facelift.
At the Robert Zubowski MD Center for Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, we counsel patients that undergoing a facelift is not the final step in their facial rejuvenation. Our skincare department can develop a home care program thoughtfully built around medical grade skincare products that will hasten your recovery and keep the compliments coming for years to come.
