Facelift in New York City

A facelift (rhytidectomy) can restore a youthful appearance and help you feel more confident.

Facelifts are among the most common surgeries Dr. Michael Somenek, a double-board-certified facial plastic surgeon, performs in New York City and Washington, D.C. He utilizes the latest techniques to deliver impressive results.

What Is a Facelift?

A facelift is designed to reduce visible signs of aging in the face and neck. It addresses sagging skin, creases, and loss of muscle tone. 

Facelifts provide a younger look and enhance your natural facial contours. They can also significantly rejuvenate your appearance by tightening underlying tissues and removing excess skin.

What Is a Deep Plane Facelift?

A facelift at Somenek+PittmanMD involves a series of carefully planned steps. The process begins with a thorough consultation, during which your goals and concerns are discussed. Dr. Somenek will assess your facial structure and skin quality to recommend the most suitable approach.

During your consultation, Dr. Somenek will share a portfolio of before-and-after cases. You will also have the opportunity to discuss other surgeries commonly combined with a facelift, such as eyelid surgery and fat grafting

Many patients decide to address more than one area when they get a facelift in New York City. Combining procedures minimizes the overall downtime needed if each one was performed individually. Additionally, addressing multiple elements can create a more uniform and balanced result.

Dr. Somenek’s Deep Plane Facelift Procedure

The deep plane facelift is a specialized technique that Dr. Somenek offers. It goes beyond traditional methods and delivers excellent results. Some patients say that they look 10-15 years younger after their surgery.

Conventional facelifts primarily tighten the skin. However, a deep plane facelift focuses on repositioning the deeper layers of facial tissue, including the muscles and fat. This approach allows for a more comprehensive lift.

By lifting and re-draping the deeper structures of the face, this type of facelift can create a youthful and refreshed appearance. It does this without the overly tight look that can sometimes result from superficial techniques. 

This procedure requires a high level of expertise and is best performed by a skilled facial plastic surgeon, such as Dr. Somenek.

What to Expect During Facelift Recovery

The recovery time after a facelift varies. Most patients can expect some swelling and bruising for the first few weeks. These issues are normal and not cause for concern. Our team will provide detailed post-operative instructions to ensure a smooth recuperation.
