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. 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.
John was a successful 62 year old who became disenchanted with his double chin as he reached his fifties. After several years of feeling insecure about his appearance, he finally reached out to Dr. Sullivan to find out what could be done to improve his look.
Additional Facial Rejuvenation Procedures
Additional procedures that may enhance the results include: brow lift, eyelid surgery, nose reshaping, earlobe reduction, or placement of fat and stem cells into areas of the face to enhance lips, cheeks and jawlines or to fill in deep creases.
