Facelift

Arnold S. Breitbart, MD

Face Lift in Long Island

An increasingly popular option among both men and women who seek to rejuvenate the face is a face lift. Long Island patients who want to restore a more youthful and natural appearance to the face, opt for this form of cosmetic surgery to address aging in the face and neck area. As the body ages, the connective tissue stretches out, moving skin and tissue away from their original positions, while creating folds of skin on the face and in the neck area. Tissue volume also decreases, creating a hollow or haggard appearance. In addition to facelifts, patients often choose to undergo additional surgical improvements such as eyelid surgery.
Long Island board-certified surgeon Dr. Arnold Breitbart carefully repositions tissue in the face and neck, making patients appear ten to fifteen younger with a youthful and natural appearance. One of the most complex cosmetic procedures is a face lift. Long Island patients should select a surgeon with considerable expertise, who is board-certified, and is well recommended. In addition, the surgeon they select should have a comfortable bedside manner and be willing to discuss their questions and concerns as necessary. Dr. Breitbart carefully repositions tissues, adding jowls back into the cheeks and nasolabial folds up to the cheekbone, while repositioning muscles in the neck. These steps restore the clean jaw line, add fullness to the cheeks, improve bands in the neck, and restore soft tissue in a face lift. Long Island’s Dr. Breitbart takes every measure to ensure optimal results with minimal and less visible scars.

Eyelid Surgery in Long Island

In addition to face lift, Long Island patients may opt for eyelid surgery. Long Island’s Dr. Arnold Breitbart is experienced in both facial rejuvenation and body contouring techniques to assist patients in achieving the fresh, youthful appearance they desire. Both procedures require anesthesia. Ideal candidates are in good health and have realistic expectations for surgery for eyelid surgery. Long Island patients are typically at least forty years old.
In a complete facial rejuvenation process, Dr. Breitbart performs a facelift, neck lift, brow lift, and eyelid surgery. Long Island patients meet with Dr. Breitbart in an initial consultation to determine what procedures will produce the best results. Rejuvenating the eye area by reshaping the upper and lower eyelids removes extra fat while restoring the eye to a refreshed appearance. For patients undergoing eyelid surgery, Long Island’s Dr. Breitbart advises rest and avoiding strenuous activity for three to four weeks for full recovery.
