Answer Snippet
Facial Microcurrent: Do They Work Like a Facelift?
Microcurrent Facial vs Facelift
Oct 9, 2019
There is value, for the right patients, in the numerous non surgical options that exist to treat the aging face. A facelift is unique from any non surgical option in that it lifts and repositions the facial tissue upward, back to the position and shape of the face in our youth. Our practice prefers a Deep Plane Facelift that lifts and elevates the sagging facial skin, muscle and deeper fat pads. This technique restores the heart shaped face of youth, with wider and...
What should I expect after the facelift and how long does it last?
Facelift Duration
Oct 9, 2019
The longevity of a facelift can be dependent on the anatomy of the patient's face and neck as well as the technique used. Facelift has become an umbrella term that can represent many different surgical techniques. Mini lifts, ponytail lifts etc. Our practice prefers using a Deep Plane Facelift to garner the most substantial and long lasting results. This technique elevates the deeper musculature of the face and neck and repositions it vertically to where it was in our...
How Long Should Swelling and Numbness Last After a Facelift?
Facelift Recovery
Oct 7, 2019
Our practice sees patient return to work and social engagements at 10-14 days. You will still have residual swelling and numbness at that time which will continue to resolve over the coming months. Our practice is founded in a holistic approach to healing and we use many complementary medicine techniques to help nurture the healing process. There are homeopathic supplements, prescription medications, as well as treatments (lymphatic drainage, myofascial release) that can help...
What Does a Neck Lift Cost?
Neck Lift Cost
Oct 7, 2019
The cost of a neck lift will likely depend on the geographical location of your provider as well as the complexity of the procedure. We treat the neck by toning and tightening the platysma muscle. This can be done in two ways: An incision underneath the chin to directly address the bands or by an incision behind the ear to treat them from the side. Often, these two approaches can be used in concert for even more impactful results. It is most important that you...
Sagging neck skin ("turkey neck"). What asurgical and non-surgical options are available to fi
Treat Sagging Neck Skin
Oct 7, 2019
The sagging neck is an area that can be treated surgically for substantial and long lasting results. The platysma muscle is the muscle underlying the neck skin. Sagging of this muscle is largely what causes the 'turkey neck' that you mention. Our practice treats sagging necks with a Deep Plane Neck Lift that tightens and tones this muscle to reveal soft and smooth skin overlying it. This procedure can result in long lasting treatment with a substantial...
How Long Does a Facelift Last?
A Facelift Can Last 10 years
Oct 7, 2019
The longevity of a facelift is largely dependent on the technique used in surgery. Our preferred technique for a facelift is a Minimal Access Deep Plane Facelift. A Deep Plane Facelift treats the heavy and sagging underlying musculature- which can create more substantial improvement that is longer lasting than other "SMAS" based facelifts.
Is a Facelift the Only Answer for Marionette Lines and Jowls?
Marrionette Lines + Jowl Treatment
Oct 7, 2019
Absolutely Not! A facelift is a wonderful way to gain substantial long lasting improvement in ridding your face of Jowls and Marionette lines. However, for those patients uninterested in undergoing surgery there are many non surgical and minimally invasive options to treat this area. We offer a Non Surgical Facelift for patients in your shoes. This is a combination of non surgical treatments, customized to your individual needs, that will address your...
Effective and Long-lasting Procedure for Lifting Jowls?
Treating Jowls
Oct 7, 2019
Jowls are multifactorial and can be the result of drooping of the skin, soft tissue, fat pads, and deeper muscles. Jowls can interfere with the appearance of a smooth jawline, and also can grant the face a more "square" like appearance from the front.
Our practice prefers to treat jowls with a Minimal Access Deep Plane Facelift. This provides very effective and long lasting results that can clean up the jowls along your jawline.
How Much Does a Facelift Cost?
Facelift Cost
Oct 7, 2019
The cost for a facelift will likely reflect:
- Your geographical region
- Complexity of the surgery

A Facelift is a procedure that should be individualized to your specific needs and attributes. Facelift has become a sort of 'umbrella term' that encompasses many disparate procedures. A facelift is a term that can be used to refer to treatment of the mid face, lower face, or neck, or all of these at once. It is important for you to discuss your specific wishes...

Is It Possible That With Age, My Nose Is Growing Larger?
Nasal Shape + Aging
Oct 7, 2019
Your nasal shape is the result of the underlying bony and cartilage skeleton and the overlying skin and soft tissue that covers it. With age, the relationship of these structures can change. Traditionally, our skin and soft tissues become thinned and less supported with time, and therefore can change the way the skin and soft tissue appear as a covering over the nasal skeleton. While it is my opinion that the old wives tale saying that the nose keeps growing our whole...
How long is it normal to have swelling after rhinoplasty?
Swelling after Rhinoplasty
Oct 7, 2019
It is often said that complete healing from a rhinoplasty requires one full calendar year. The individual process of healing is dependent on how extensive of a surgery was performed and your body's response to healing. We counsel patients that swelling will gradually improve over this time period and that there are things we can do to improve your healing process. Our practice uses a regimen of vitamins and supplements as well as prescription medications when...
How Much Does Rhinoplasty Cost?
Rhinoplasty Cost
Oct 7, 2019
The cost of Rhinoplasty is generally influenced by the following:
-Geographical Location of provider
-Complexity of individual surgery

I recommend patients seek more than one opinion regarding a rhinoplasty surgery, as this procedure is very nuanced and there are a variety of approaches to this treatment.
Our practice prefers the Closed Rhinoplasty or "scarless" rhinoplasty approach because of its less invasive nature and shorter healing times.

How Soon After Rhinoplasty Can I Fly or Exercise?
Resuming Normal Activity After Rhinoplasty
Oct 7, 2019
We counsel patients to be cautious following surgery with these general guidlines:
One week After Surgery:
We counsel patients to limit your activity sharply for the first week following surgery. This is aimed at helping your body in the early healing stages. After the cast is removed at the one week mark, then we would clear you to fly.
Three Weeks After Surgery:
We ask patients to avoid bending, lifting, straining and aerobic activities for the first 3 weeks. After...
When to Stop Drinking Alcohol Prior to Surgery?
Alcohol + Rhinoplasty Surgery Preparation
Oct 7, 2019
My practice focuses on a holistic approach to healing post-operatively, and for this reason we place great importance of the value of preparing before surgery.
Two Weeks Before Surgery:
We recommend patients stop taking an prescription or over the counter medications that might increase bruising, such as Vitamin E, NSAIDS, etc.
We recommend refraining from all nicotine containing products

One Week Before Surgery:
We recommend not using alcohol for this week leading up to...
