Today, attractive alternatives are available for minimally invasive facial rejuvenation. Tailoring the procedure for the right circumstances, physical findings, patient concerns and health of the patient is Dr. Larry Weinstein’s specialty. Dr. Weinstein, a board certified plastic surgeon, uses a balanced approach to achieve consistent safe and natural improvements.
As people age, the effects of gravity exposure to the sun, and the stresses of daily life can be seen in their faces. Deep creases form between the nose and mouth; the jaw line grows slack and jowly; folds and fat deposits appear around the neck.
A face-lift (technically known as rhytidectomy) can’t stop the aging process. What it can do is “set back the clock,” improving the most visible signs fo aging by removing excess fat, tightening underlying muscles, and re-draping the skin of your face and neck. A face-lift can be done alone, or in conjunction with other procedures such as a forehead lift, eyelid surgery or nose reshaping.
“I always concentrate on the areas that can be fixed with minimal invasive plastic surgery. When I check position, I look carefully at the anterior hairline. I find in the aging patient, both male and female, that a receding hairline is common. I will offer an anterior hairline approach for brow elevation in those patients with a receding hairline. This anterior hairline technique allows the hairline to be brought forward, while elevating the brow and correcting glabella (worry lines) furrows. I always preserve the widow’s peak to obtain a natural results.”
“When performing a face-lift, I want the wounds to be barely visible. Women are often concerned that if the wind blows their hair up, there will be visible scars,” Dr. Weinstein added.
