Face Lift: Long Island's alternative to Botox

Long Island patients often ask me about the newest advances in face lift surgery and injectable fillers (such as botox). For a face lift, Long Island surgeons offer a variety of options, but with botox, Long Island patients are often looking for very specific results. Last year, botox (Long Island patients included) was the second most popular cosmetic procedure in the U.S.
For botox, Long Island patients come to my office to discuss the areas that need to be addressed to remove wrinkles, frown lines, and other unwanted facial lines. Taking into account their face shape, ethnicity, and even their personality so that for botox, Long Island patients know where they can receive the best care. Just like for a face lift, Long Island patients seeking botox treatment must be in good health. For a face lift, Long Island patients will be in surgery for a few hours and will be able to return to work within ten to twelve days. In the area of botox, Long Island patients will see the full results in just a few days and can return to work on the same day after the injections.

Face Lift: Long Island Looking Younger

In terms of face lift, Long Island patients actually want something a little less dramatic. I can offer them a combination of procedures that will make them look younger and improve their appearance without a full face lift. Long Island patients can come to me for everything from a neck lift to remove the “waddle” effect to a brow lift to make their eyes appear less tired. I can offer them a variety of options to choose from including a full face lift. Long Island patients should consider their needs and carefully study a surgeon’s before and after photos.
Consider the following:
  • - When discussing face lift, Long Island patients should make sure they have a variety of options so they have natural looking results.
  • - When viewing photos of surgery including botox, Long Island patients should pay attention to the surgeons details to be sure they find the right surgeon.
  • - Watch for the tight look across the cheekbones in photos of face lift. Long Island patients come to me for a more natural looking reverse of the aging process.
