The Face of Facelifts Gets Younger

The term “facelift” used to conjure images of overly pulled, stretched and expressionless individuals who had taken surgery to an extreme. This drastic, wind-blown effect often aged recipients with telltale signs of a surgical procedure. With advances in surgical techniques, like the innovations pioneered by one of the best New York (NYC), USA, double-board certified facial plastic surgeon Sam Rizk, MD, FACS, the face of facelifts is getting younger and has become impossible to recognize. As surgical results become more discreet, more people under the age of 60 are turning to face lifts to delay the clock.

In fact, a study by the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery found that 59% of facelifts were performed on patients between the ages of 35-60 in 2012, as compared to 40% performed on patients over 60. The reason for this perceptible attitude change toward face lifts can be largely attributed to improvements in technology that allow for a quicker recovery, less scarring and more natural outcomes. At the forefront of this revolution is Dr. Rizk. Recognized for his thought leadership as one of the best facial plastic surgeons in New York (NYC), USA, Dr. Rizk has developed a rapid recovery, 3-D facelift that is making the procedure more appealing and feasible for this younger demographic.

“As we age, facial muscles become loose and drop underneath the skin,” says Dr. Rizk. “It may be tempting to turn to inexpensive treatment options like injectables, but fillers are not the cure-all for all forms of facial aging and should not be seen as a substitute for a facelift. If you’re looking to correct sagging around the neck or jowl, fillers are an ineffective solution.”

Dr. Rizk’s unique facelift technique goes under the muscle, sliding it backwards into its original position. 3-D high definition telescopes are used to visualize the face and neck structures in order to improve precision and safety. This results in less bruising, swelling, and scarring, making him one of the best, most highly sought after face lift surgeons in New York (NYC), USA. The futuristic facelift procedure addresses the midface, lower face, and neck areas and the recovery period is only about one week. Dr. Rizk customizes each procedure to correspond to his patient’s beauty goals and proportions and his outcomes ensure each patient has a natural, long-lasting result without any man made or abnormal tightness.

Dr. Rizk’s office is located at 1040 Park Avenue in Manhattan.
