Facialplasty is the quintessential cosmetic surgery procedure offering patients the ability to regain the sharp facial contours and outlines that are identifiable with youthfulness. Sagging of the skin under the neck is usually the first sign of aging (occurring typically in your 40’s), followed by the appearance of the jowls (deep cheek folds). Using incisions placed in natural shadows and contours in front of and behind the ear, your plastic surgeon can tighten the facial and neck musculature and remove excess sagging skin. Newer procedures are designed to tighten the muscles separately from the tightening of the skin to prevent the appearance of the “over done” or “wind tunnel” look.
Eyelid surgery is a common cosmetic procedure performed at Plastic Surgery of New York. Hanging skin and puffy eyelids can lead to patients appearing tired and older than they really are. Our surgeons are experts in surgical treatment of the eyelids, both alone or in conjunction with other procedures to correct these problem areas and give you a more rested, youthful appearance. Hanging upper eyelid skin can sometimes be so severe that it inteferes with vision. Drooping upper eyelid skin, puffy lower eyelids, and low set eyebrows, whether from aging, or inherited by younger patients, can often be corrected with simple and safe procedures. Many time patients are seen in consultation and do not need surgery at all. Non-invasive treatments such as fillers, BOTOX, and treatments by our aesthetician can help you avoid surgery.
