Dr. Ostad is known throughout New York and beyond for his precise and artistic cosmetic surgical skills. He utilizes various facelift techniques to correct the signs of aging without creating an overdone or unnatural appearance.

In this procedure, excess skin is removed and tissue is repositioned to reduce skin laxity, sagging, and jowls. Depending on your needs and goals, Dr. Ostad may perform a traditional full facelift, or a less invasive variation with minimal incisions. He uses precision techniques and strategic incision locations to minimize and disguise scars.

About the Procedure

Depending on the technique, a facelift usually takes approximately two hours. The procedure is performed right here in our office, which is AAAASF (American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities) certified.

Our caring team of professionals will see to your needs and ensure your comfort while you are in our care. We advise patients to make arrangements with friends or family for some assistance in the days following surgery. Many patients return to work and resume normal activities within one or two weeks. However, healing time varies from one person to the next.

Who is a good candidate?

If you have excess facial skin, wrinkles, or sagging that cannot be fully corrected with injectable treatments, a facelift is an excellent solution. It is also popular among patients who are seeking permanent results, without the need for regular touch-ups. A facelift procedure can improve or correct:

  • Midfacial sagging
  • Excess skin along the jawline and jowls
  • Nasolabial folds (creases from the corners of the mouth to the nose)
  • Marionette lines (creases from the corner of the mouth to the chin)
  • Displaced facial fat
  • Poor muscle tone and sagging in the lower face
  • Loose, sagging skin beneath the chin (double chin)

FAQ

What is a facelift surgery?

Facelift surgery is a procedure that is aimed at reducing the wrinkles present on the face along with other telltale signs of aging, by lifting the skin. The goal is to tighten and rejuvenate the facial appearance. The harmful effects of stress, time, and elements exposure can be reversed greatly with this practice.

People who have excess facial wrinkles, skin sagging or any visible signs of severe aging which is not treatable with injectable treatments are an ideal candidate for the facelift.

These can all be addressed by the skill and artistry of Dr. Ostad and his staff. Additionally, any unorganized facial fat, sagging muscle or lack of tone in the face can be treated with a facelift.

How long will the effects of my facelift last?

The results of this procedure will last at least 10-15 years.
