Treatment Trending Among 40-Year Old Women

Sam Rizk, MD, FACS, a double-board certified facial plastic surgeon in New York City, introduces a fresh, less invasive, rapid recovery facelift, targeted to meet the needs of a new, younger demographic.

The term “facelift” once conjured images of older, overly pulled, stretched and expressionless individuals. However, as surgical outcomes have advanced, becoming more discreet and natural-looking, younger people have now come to rely on the surgical solution to look as good as they feel.

“Despite efforts to care for their skin, women in their 40s are noticing skin aging and volume and collagen depletion in their lower face and neck,” says Dr. Rizk. “It can make them look a decade older.”

Women in their 40s comprise the fastest growing segment of patients at Dr. Rizk’s Park Avenue practice. While 40 may seem young for surgical measures, Dr. Rizk performs a lower (jowl) facelift and neck lift on these women.

He takes a 3-prong approach to reverse the signs of aging:
1.    Rapid Recovery Facelift on the lower jowls and neck
2.    PRP stem cell treatment to restore volume to the under eyes and upper face
3.    Laser resurfacing to correct tone and texture.

Women flock to Dr. Rizk for his pioneering 3D technology, empowering him to precisely visualize the structures of the face. With this 3-step system, patients age better, they never look windblown or “done,” and the results last longer. Patients consistently recover 50% faster—only one to two weeks with no stitches, less bruising and scarring.

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