FACELIFT

According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, facelifts are one of the most common cosmetic surgery procedures in the United States, performed on women and men of all ages. A facelift, known medically as a rhytidectomy, is one of the best ways to maintain or regain a more youthful facial appearance. While facial cosmetic surgery techniques vary, most facelifts involve the removal of excess facial skin due to gravity and aging-related loss of collagen. Some facelifts involve additional tightening of underlying facial tissue and reconstruction of skin on patients' necks and jawlines.

Facelifts can target a wide variety of aging-related facial damage, including tightening excess sagging skin on the face and neck. Procedures can also target the deep lines created between the folds of the nose and the corner of the mouth or redefine the jawline at the jowls for a more youthful look. Some procedures target areas like sagging of flattened cheekbones, loose facial skin, and deep wrinkles or loose bands of skin at the neck.

THE NEW YORK CITY FACELIFT
PROCEDURE

If you're interested in a facelift in NYC, you should know that there are many types of facelifts available. Invasive and non-invasive techniques have come a long way in a short time, targeting the underlying causes of skin aging and decline in appearance instead of simply pulling back skin. The combination of facelift surgery with facial exercise routines and complementary facial cosmetic surgeries can easily take 10 to 15 years off your appearance and leave you feeling more confident than ever.

Facelift practices differ based on the type of incision and the level of invasiveness. While traditional facelifts like SMAS lifts and deep-plane facelifts make incisions at the ear, cheeks, jawline, or hairline and rely on complete reconstructive techniques, Dr. Tal Dagan's revolutionary facelift techniques minimize invasiveness and use simple local incisions to reverse gravitational changes to the face and return the tissues directly underneath the skin to their natural youthful position without the risk of overtightening. These one-of-a-kind techniques result in shorter and safer procedures under local anesthesia and quicker recovery times, getting you back on your feet and ready to show off your results in no time.

Benefits of a Facelift in New York

Facelifts have a notorious reputation in the world of cosmetic surgery due to outdated information about botched results, antiquated practices, and long, painful recovery times. Unbeknownst to many, the days of the subpar facelift are overdue to massive advancements in techniques and recovery times. These days, facelift patients can expect natural-looking results without a windswept look or noticeable incision scarring. And because of revolutionary advancements by surgeons like Dr. Tal Tagan, patients can enjoy the benefits of a standard facelift as part of a minimally-invasive procedure with much shorter recovery time.

Modern facelift procedures like Dr. Tal Dagan’s Manhattan Lift and Phantom Lift aim to correct signs of aging accumulated over the years by gravity, sun damage, heredity, smoking, stress, and other daily habits.

When you schedule a facelift in NYC, you can expect overall improvements like:

  • Tightening of sagging skin on the face and neck
  • Tightening of underlying facial tissue and muscle
  • Re-contouring of the neck and jawline
  • Restoration of facial volume and youthful look

Facelifts can resolve common signs of aging like:

  • Sagging skin on the face, jawline, or neck
  • Deep nasolabial fold creases on the nose and mouth
  • Deep marionette lines on the mouth and chin
  • Jowls or a double chin
  • Displaced or thinning facial fat
  • Thinning dermal tissue on the face and neck

While facelifts have a reputation of popularity among older women, anyone can benefit from Dr. Tal Dagan’s minimally-invasive facelift techniques. In recent years, facelifts have become more popular among male patients, sculpting strong jawlines and cheekbones and restoring a handsome, youthful appearance. Younger patients in their 20s, 30s, and 40s can benefit from gradual restructuring to maintain young, healthy facial appearance throughout their lives and minimize the signs of aging before time takes its toll.

Facelift Complications

Unlike horror stories about botched facelifts might lead you to believe, the risks of facelifts are no more severe than the risks of most surgeries. The most common complication of facelifts is bleeding from the incision site, which can be taken care of quickly with a secondary procedure.

Other less common risks include:

  • Damage to facial nerves, including temporary or permanent loss of nerve sensation
  • Necrosis of facial skin flaps
  • Hair loss near incisions
  • Changes in the angle of earlobe positioning
  • Hematoma or arterial bleeding
  • Infection
  • Hypertrophic scarring

For most patients, the risks of facelifts are negligible and can easily be managed with a second corrective surgery if they present. Thanks to Dr. Tal Dagan’s revolutionary minimally-invasive facelift techniques, most patients can expect minimal complications, if any. Dagan MD partners with Manhattan’s top hospital networks to provide patients with the best care in the NYC region, including full treatment options for any complications that might arise after surgery.

Dr. Tal Dagan’s New York Facelift Options

Dagan MD specializes in two revolutionary types of minimally-invasive facelifts: the Manhattan Lift and the Phantom Lift. Both procedures are performed under local anesthesia without the need for intravenous drug administration or more extensive general anesthesia. Both procedures last between 1.5 and 3 hours and can be performed as simple outpatient surgical procedures at some of Manhattan’s top hospitals.

The Facelift Recovery Process

The recovery process for conventional facelifts can depend on factors like age, health, and type of procedure, but typically takes several weeks for patients to get fully back on their feet and look their best. During the first week after your procedure, you may experience more exhaustion than usual as the body recovers from surgery. You’ll want to make sure you have loved ones ready to drive you home from the procedure and help care for you during the days following surgery. Dr. Tal Dagan will prescribe pain medication to ease any discomfort following your procedure, though contrary to popular belief, most patients don’t feel much pain after their facelift.

You may experience minor bruising and swelling during the weeks following your facelift, which should peak around days 3-4. Most swelling and pain begin to decrease around days 4-6, which is about when you can expect to start feeling more comfortable being on your feet and moving around. A followup appointment with Dr. Tal Dagan within the week after your facelift will care for any dressing and review postoperative care needs.

Unlike conventional facelifts, you can expect to start feeling and looking your best after a Manhattan Lift or Phantom Lift within 5-7 days following your procedure. Most patients return to work and normal daily living within two weeks following surgery. While most benefits of your facelift will begin to show within one month, you may experience minor swelling, bruising, tightness, or numbness in the facial area for up to a year following your procedure.

In all, you can expect that the results of your facelift by Dr. Tal Dagan will last between 2 and 12 years, depending on your skin quality, overall health, and habits.

The Manhattan Lift

Dr. Tal Dagan’s revolutionary Manhattan facelift represents a natural evolution of his years of experience performing hundreds of facelift procedures a year in NYC. This one-of-a-kind surgery is performed under only local anesthesia, without the need for intravenous drug administration or lengthy, complicated surgical times. Minimally-invasive incisions allow for tightening of skin tissue and restoration of the natural positioning of facial structures. If you schedule a Manhattan Lift in NYC, you can expect major improvement to gravitational facial changes like hanging jowls, loose neck skin, wrinkles, and hollow cheekbones. The minimally-invasive nature of Manhattan Lifts results in shorter procedure times, safer procedures, and much less recovery downtime than standard procedures like SMAS and deep-plane facelifts.

The Phantom Lift

The Phantom Lift is a world-class proprietary technique developed by Dr. Tal Dagan after years of performing Manhattan Lifts. This simple facelift procedure has revolutionized facelifts in NYC in recent years, eliminating the need for external stitches and minimizing scarring. Dr. Tal Dagan uses revolutionary suturing techniques to create a seamless look and quicken the healing process. Phantom Lifts are a great choice for busy professionals and active adults looking to return to normal activities sooner than traditional facelift procedures allow. If you opt for a Phantom Lift, you can expect all the benefits of standard facelifts in NYC with a fraction of the risks and downtime required.
