Our approach to facial rejuvenation is different from the standard facelift. We perform a specialized facial rejuvenation that is artistically tailored for each patient’s individual needs and desires. Our specialty is to give each patient a very natural and more rested, youthful appearance. With facial rejuvenation from our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Patrick K. Sullivan can dramatically reduce signs of age in the face with results that look beautiful and natural.
Turning Back the Clock
Facial rejuvenation can’t stop the aging process. What it can do is “turn back the clock,” improving the most visible signs of aging by removing excess fat from the neck and jowl area, tightening and lifting underlying tissues back into a more youthful position, sculpting, enhancing cheek bones, and redraping the skin of your face and neck. Facial rejuvenation is done under intravenous sedation with an overnight stay in a recovery facility with our private nurse. Although there will be some bruising and swelling after the procedure, this will typically fade significantly in about 2 to 3 weeks (see “The Kindest Cut”). The final results from facelift surgery is usually most apparent after 4 to 6 weeks, or sooner, with continued improvement for several months.
It has been just over one year since my rejuvenation and I am feeling wonderful. My 32nd high school reunion is this weekend (we are celebrating our 50th birthdays!) and this gal is gonna shine. My best to all, and appreciation.
