Revolutionary Technique Delivers Less Invasive Solution for Sagging

As early as thirty, gravity begins to take a noticeable toll and can present in the form of “jowls." The dreaded droopiness usually appears around the nasolabail folds with the start of the marionette line or smile lines. Aging can be fought with injectables, peels, topical treatments and diligent skincare, but as the deep facial tissues descend, jowls inevitably appear.

“Juvederm, Radiesse, and Restylane are all synthetic fillers that can be used under the skin to fill natural lines or to plump up dropping areas," says New York City Facial Plastic Surgeon Sam Rizk, MD, FACS. “Minimally invasive treatments such as fractionated laser, radiofrequency tightening procedures, chemical peels can also help, but the only way to truly rein in the sagging is with a partial facelift.”

With age, skin becomes thinner and less elastic. "Jowls" are actually the natural aging process where the cheek begins to descend in to the neck. The thought of even a partial facelift at thirty may seem extreme, but Dr. Rizk has pioneered a Rapid Recovery Facelift that is changing the face of the aging process.

Dr. Rizk’s unique technique addresses the deeper tissues by starting under the muscle, and sliding it back 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 means less bruising and swelling because the real work is being done under the muscle. The excess skin is then trimmed, resulting in a natural, softer look.

The futuristic partial facelift procedure addresses the 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 aesthetic goals and structural proportions. His outcomes ensure each patient has a natural, long-lasting result without any man made or abnormal tightness.

Like all of his surgeries, Dr. Rizk emphasizes natural outcomes with facelifts, giving patients the jaw line and facial definition they’re looking for without appearing like they had “work” done.

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