Before & After

Cosmetic & Craniofacial Surgery‘s before-and-after pictures of real patients.

Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. James Bradley’s facelift procedures are designed to give a natural, refreshed look with the shortest recovery time possible. He has performed nearly a thousand facial rejuvenation surgeries and has developed procedures that can be tailored to the individual’s anatomy and desired goals. If you’re interested in a facelift in New York City, Dr. Bradley would be an ideal choice.

FACELIFT OBJECTIVES

  • Correct gravity facial aging changes of the cheek, jawline and neck
  • Reposition foundation (SMAS or fascia) to achieve lift without too much skin pull or windblown look.
  • Restore fat volume lost with aging

STATE OF THE ART FACELIFT TECHNIQUES

The facelift, or rhytidectomy, technique used during your procedure will be based on your aesthetic goals and the details of your specific case. We offer two cutting-edge facelift techniques: the mini facelift and the short scar facelift. Each option provides a number of benefits.

THE MINI FACELIFT

The mini facelift, or mini-lift, is a less invasive alternative to the traditional rhytidectomy procedure. It provides a smaller degree of rejuvenation, which makes it the perfect choice for younger patients and anyone looking to correct minor signs of facial aging. It also takes less time to perform than the traditional facelift.

A mini facelift can be performed using local anesthesia with sedation, and general anesthesia is typically not necessary. The incision is much shorter and is made just in front of the ear.

After the incision is made, the SMAS layer is lifted and tightened. The platysma muscles are also tightened for a more youthful look. Once the tissues have been adjusted appropriately, the incisions are closed with sutures.

THE SHORT SCAR FACELIFT

Another alternative to the traditional facelift is the short scar facelift. Like traditional rhytidectomies, these typically require general anesthesia. The incision is similar as well, but it does not extend behind the ear. Because of this, there is no post-surgical mark left behind the ear. It is ideal for those who do not have a great deal of drooping neck skin.

GOOD CANDIDATES FOR A FACELIFT

If you have drooping facial skin, noticeable folds, and diminished facial contours, a facelift can provide you with the results you are looking for. Good candidates for a facelift should be in good overall health and have realistic expectations regarding the results that are possible through surgery. Looking at before and after photos helps patients understand the type of results that are possible with their chosen procedure.

Facelift surgery can be performed in conjunction with other surgical procedures for more comprehensive results, like eyelid surgery, a brow lift, or a neck lift. Find out more during a consultation.

THE FACELIFT RECOVERY AND HEALING PROCESS

Once your chosen facelift has been performed, you will return home and rest to allow your body to heal. After a mini facelift or a short-scar facelift, there will be less bruising and swelling in the region than there would be after a traditional facelift. This is because these techniques are less invasive and thus involve less tissue damage.

Following the directions of Dr. Bradley during your healing process is key for achieving the best possible facelift results. You will need to take some time off from work, avoid physically taxing activities like heavy exercise, and come in for follow-up appointments to ensure that the facelift recovery process is going as expected.

FACELIFT COST

The price of a rhytidectomy is dependent on many factors; final facelift cost will be impacted by the techniques chosen, the time it takes to perform the surgery, and the anesthesia used. Because a facelift is a cosmetic procedure rather than a functional one, it is not covered by health insurance providers.

At 49 years of age I felt young but saw my reflection in the mirror looking old. The other day I saw my friend’s facebook posting of me and realized that people see an old me and not the young vibrant me that I was just a few years ago. I never thought that I would consider facial rejuvenation procedures. But I’m so glad that I did. I’m so glad that I met Dr. Bradley. The first time that I met him, I noticed that he was confident and reassuring. What I really liked about him was that he listened to me and was extremely patient with me. He recommended botox and fillers initially. After a year I opted to have a mini-facelift procedure. Now I look and feel amazing!
