Procedure: Face Lift & Neck Lift

Procedure Description: Before: Age 61. Patient was concerned about sagging of her cheeks, jaw line and neck. She had heard about “Life Style Lifts” from TV infomercials and was hoping she could have the same results as shown on TV with minimal downtime and only pay $ 5995. At the same time she was fearful of having a pulled windblown look. At the consultation, various types of facelift options were discussed and I advised her that the results shown for Life Style lift as well as other forms of mini face lifts would not accomplish her goals and that in fact she could end up having a pulled look because they don’t sufficiently address the deeper structures of the face that have sagged. They primarily pull the skin which can’t give a durable result. Once she understood the benefit of a Multi Level Face Lift, also known as Deep Plane Face Lifts, where the deeper structures (muscles) are lifted, and not the skin, she elected to go this route. Yes, there was a 10 to 14 day downtime and the expense was greater than that for a mini face lift but 7 years later, age 68 (see additional photos) her results have stood the test of time.After: 3 months after a Deep Plane Face Lift (Multi Level). Note natural lifting of her jaw line and neck. The incisions are hidden and her natural hair line has been maintained. On the following images, you can see that 7 years later, her results have remained nearly the same. She doesn’t have the windblown wind tunnel look one can often see from mini lifts such as the Life Style Lift. She came back 7 years later to maintain her results by replacing lost facial volume in her cheeks with long lasting Sculptra Injections.

Procedure: Face Lift & Neck Lift

Procedure Description: Before: 66 year old female bothered by laxity and aging in her neck. She didn’t want a traditional facelift due to concerns over cost, recovery, and general anesthesia. After: 6 months after a neck lift, utilizing the "Direct Neck Lift" approach where excess skin was removed from the front of the neck and the platysma (bands) tightened. The incision in the front of the neck is camouflaged by hiding it in the natural neck lines and by treating the scar with three Fraxel treatments starting 6 weeks after surgery. This type of neck lift can be done under local anesthesia with oral sedation. Recovery is only one week and the cost is about half of conventional neck and face lift surgery. Results are often superior to conventional neck lift surgeries as the problem, excess skin, is tackled at the sight of the problem rather than trying to pull that skin behind the ears. In order to further enhance his results, she had volume restoration to her jaw line and cheeks with Sculptra injections and a laser procedure, called "Laser Lift" was used to tighten her jaw line during the neck lift procedure.

Procedure: Face Lift & Neck Lift

Procedure Description: Before: pictures show a lax neck and jowl skin. Patient doesn’t want a full face lift due to cost, incisions, anesthesia and down time. A direct neck lift using a zig zag incision along the front of the neck heals with minimally visible scar. Procedure done under local anesthesia with only one week of downtime. Note this type of lift will not lift the cheeks (mid face). Patients can elect to have filler injections (fat, sculpra, juvederm, or radiesse) to lift the cheeks. After: pictures are 9 months post op. Note the dramatic improvement with only minimally visible scars which will continue to heal over time. Post operatively, Fraxel Dual laser treatments were performed starting 6 weeks post-surgery to further facilitate healing.

Procedure: Face Lift & Neck Lift

Procedure Description: Before: 59 year old male, who was bothered and self conscious about his jaw line and neck skin laxity. He had blepharoplasty 5 years prior, and would like his neck to be balanced with his youthful eyes. He is very active, and was concerned about the visibility of the incisions given that he has short hair. He was also looking for long lasting results and when he heard that a mini face lift, such as “Life Style” lift which he heard about would only give him very temporary results, he became very interested in learning more about the “Short Scar Face Lift” using a “multi level” lifting approach.After: 3.5 years after having a short scar lower face lift where you can see his results are long lasting. This is because the deeper structures, the muscles and SMAS layers were lifted. Very little skin was removed as it is not stretched in this type of procedure. The shorter scar approach shortens and hides most of the incisions so that he can keep the same hair style. In women who like to wear their hair up or have short hair this approach is ideal. These results will persist for 8 to 10 years plus vs. those of mini face lifts also known as “Life Style Lifts” where the results only last 1 or 2 years. In those types of lifts, the skin often looks unnatural and pulled as the entire face and neck is supported by pulling the skin rather than the deeper facial structures.

Procedure: Face Lift & Neck Lift

Procedure Description: Before: 63 year old male bothered by turkey neck. He was not as concerned about his mid face. Cost, recovery, and general anesthesia were also concerns.After: 10 months after a neck lift, utilizing the “Direct Neck Lift” approach where excess skin was removed from the front of the neck and the platysma (bands) tightened. This avoided the need for incisions in front and behind the ears which can be quite visible in men especially with short hair. The incision in the front of the neck is camouflaged by hiding it in the natural neck lines and by treating the scar with three Fraxel treatments starting 6 weeks after surgery. This type of neck lift can be done under local anesthesia with oral sedation. Recovery is only one week and the cost is about half of conventional neck and face lift surgery. Results are often superior to conventional neck lift surgeries as the problem, excess skin, is tackled at the sight of the problem rather than trying to pull that skin behind the ears. In order to further enhance his results, he had volume restoration to his jaw line and cheeks with Sculptra injections and the forehead lines with Botox and Juvederm injections.

Procedure: Face Lift & Neck Lift

Procedure Description: Before: 50 year old from Kingston, New York who’s main concern was her neck and jaw line. Also bothered by sun damage and facial wrinkles. Full lower face lift was not an option for this patient due to downtime, not wanting anesthesia, and cost. Was more interested in a mini neck lift.After: 6 months after a mini neck lift (Dr. Rubinstein’s T-Lift technique) and laser skin resurfacing using Fraxel Re:pair C02 laser. The mini neck lift targets the neck and not the jaw line. Laser Lift along the jaw line helped give her a more defined jaw line. All incisions are well hidden and invisible. This was all performed under local anesthesia with oral sedation and downtime was about 1 week. Unlike other mini lifting procedures such as “Lifestyle Lifts” the mini neck lift performed by Dr. Rubinstein is natural and long lasting. Patient is thrilled with her results.
