THE TRADITIONAL FACE AND NECK LIFT

When people think of a facelift, they are usually referring to the traditional standard facelift or a face and neck lift, as opposed to an Endoscopic Facelift. The standard facelift is one in which some of the skin and tissues are removed through incisions made in front of and behind the ears. These facelift techniques have evolved over the years and there are many variations in technique as a result. This type of facelift is usually performed on older individuals, although younger patients can also be good candidates if their circumstances dictate.

Dr. Vitolo has been performing this type of facelift for several decades and has perfected his technique based on his long experience. The standard facelift or face and neck lift is an excellent choice for patients whose aging symptoms may be too severe for the newer Endoscopic Brow and Facelift, fillers, or other nonsurgical rejuvenation techniques. A facelift can be a game-changer for patients, and just a single surgery can erase up to 20 years off of a person’s appearance.

HOW DOES A TRADITIONAL FACE & NECK LIFT WORK?

Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Robert Vitolo is proud to offer patients standard face and neck lift procedures using the latest SMAS (muscle tightening) techniques, which corrects signs of facial aging with the least visible scarring. With his innovative and artistic techniques, patients can look much younger without feeling self-conscious about the inevitable signs of aging.Dr. Vitolo also offers patients the Scar Less Endoscopic Facelift for those patients, even into their sixties, who do not need skin removal or who do not wish to have any visible scarring.

DR. VITOLO’S EXPERTISE IS WORTH EVERY PENNY!

“Dr. Vitolo and his team are the most kind and considerate professionals I’ve encountered. My first surgery, rhinoplasty, was done by Dr. Vitolo in 1998, which I’m extremely pleased with.

IS THERE ANY DOWNTIME?

One of the most exciting benefits of the standard face and neck lift is that with the new techniques, downtime is much shorter compared to the facelifts of the past. The average patient can expect to be able to return to normal activities and be presentable in 10 to 12 days. The procedure is usually performed under general anesthesia and the pain level is minimal.  Dr. Vitolo performs all his procedures in his state of the art AAAASF Certified surgical facility where you will be catered to by his experienced caring staff.

Most patients can return home the very same day, and overnight stays can be arranged. All postoperative care and followup visits are performed by Dr. Vitolo himself and are included in the surgical fee, as is a yearly checkup at no charge.

WHAT RESULTS WILL I SEE?*

Patients can expect to see results right on the first postoperative day when Dr. Vitolo removes the dressings, however, as swelling resolves over the next few days, the results are even more amazing. Patients can usually wear makeup after 4 to 5 days and return to normal activities and “face the world” in 10 days or so.
