Manhattan Facelift,
by Facelift Specialist Dr Lloyd Hoffman.

Facelift in Upper East SideOver time, the relentless affects of gravity changes the appearance of our face and neck. A facelift, also known as Rhytidectomy, improves visible signs of aging in the face and neck, such as:

  • Sagging in the mid-face

  • Deep creases along the nose, extending to the corner of the mouth

  • Loss of muscle tone in the lower face resulting in jowls

  • Loss of skin elasticity and excess fatty deposits under the jaw and chin

  • Deep creases below the lower eyelids


A facelift (also known as Rhytidectomy) helps restore the look of your youth by selectively canceling out those features which signify age. The cheeks are elevated, folds are flattened, jowls tightened, and the neck is re-draped. Your appearance is not replaced, but your younger appearance is restored. A facelift won’t change the fundamental appearance of your face and it cannot change the aging process. Some patients choose to have other procedures in combination with a facelift such as browlift or blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery). Candidates for a facelift must be physically healthy, non-smokers, and have realistic expectations of results.

There are several variations of facelifts. Skin-only facelifts were popular many years ago and are still used in select situations. Intermediate depth face lifts achieve a lift at deeper levels. Deep plane face lifts strive to achieve these changes just above the bones of the face. After a thorough evaluation by Dr. Hoffman, the technique will be selected which is best for you.

Dr. Hoffman usually performs these procedures under local anesthesia with sedation by a board certified anesthesiologist of his choosing

The incisions are designed to become nearly unperceivable; just in front of the ear and wrapped around to the hairline of the neck. The following day, the dressings are removed. Sutures are removed over a period of days as you heal. The amount of swelling experienced varies, but you may resume most normal activities within two weeks. After three weeks most of the postoperative signs of surgery will resolve.
