5 Signs You Might Need a NYC Facelift

As we age, our skin inevitably undergoes a variety of changes, leading to common concerns such as loose skin, the formation of deep wrinkles and jowls, as well as drooping eyelids and brows. These visible signs of aging can significantly impact our self-confidence and how we believe the world perceives us.

If you are considering facial rejuvenation, it’s important to consider the best option for you. With many nonsurgical and minimally-invasive treatments that produce stunning results, it can be difficult to determine whether or not a surgical facelift is the best option for you.

While scheduling a facelift consultation with a board certified facial plastic surgeon is the best way to determine the right approach to achieving  your facial rejuvenation goals, we’ve compiled a list of signs you might need a NYC facelift.

What is a NYC Facelift?

New Yorkers expect the best, most efficient solutions with everything – why not their facelifts? Born and raised in New York, Dr. Jennifer Levine understands her patients’ desire for natural-looking facelift results and  minimal downtime.

While setting realistic expectations is always a priority, Dr. Levine’s double board certification and sole focus on facial plastic surgery gives her patients the best results with minimally-invasive techniques and combination treatments that reduce recovery time. 

Here are 5 Signs You Are a Good Candidate for a Facelift

Determining whether you’re an ideal candidate for a facelift involves a combination of factors related to your skin condition, overall health, and aesthetic goals. 

Age: Generally, individuals in their 40s to 70s, who experience significant skin laxity, sagging neck, and deep wrinkles, find the most benefit from a facelift. However, it’s not exclusively about age; a surgical facelift is equally impactful – and is becoming more popular – for women and men in their 30’s seeking to address these concerns early on.

Significant Skin Laxity: An apparent loss of skin elasticity and firmness leading to sagging, jowling and loss of contour.

Midface Volume Loss: A noticeable descent of the cheeks, contributing to a tired appearance.

Deep Wrinkles: Prominent folds and lines, especially around the nose, mouth, and forehead.

Sagging Neck: The appearance of “turkey neck” or double chin due to loose skin and excess fat.

A facelift candidate will likely experience several of these signs simultaneously, signaling that a surgical intervention may provide them with optimal results.

Non-Surgical Face Lift Treatments

If you’re experiencing mild-to-moderate signs of aging or are unable to have surgery for medical reasons, advanced non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments in NYC can be combined to produce optimal results. 

An innovator in the field of aesthetics, Dr. Levine has conducted multiple studies over the years on non-surgical treatments  that include Ultherapy and Emface, two of the most advanced non-surgical facelift options available.

Ultherapy: The Gold Standard in skin tightening, Ultherapy addresses the same layers of facial tissue as a surgical facelift, targeting the SMAS, and producing results over time. Unlike most other non-surgical facelift treatments, only one Ultherapy session is required per area with maintenance sessions every 18 months.  

Emface: A groundbreaking non-surgical procedure that lifts and tightens the skin using a combination of synchronized RF and HIFES technology. Ideal for those looking to address early signs of aging without downtime.

EXION: Offering a unique combination of radiofrequency and ultrasound, this treatment boosts collagen and hyaluronic acid production, providing a comprehensive facial rejuvenation effect that includes skin tightening, skin hydration and facial contouring. 

Thread Lift: A nonsurgical facelift option that shows immediate results, a thread lift is a minimally invasive procedure that involves expertly placing dissolvable PDO threads under layers of facial tissue, then repositioning the tissue using those threads, effectively rejuvenating and contouring one’s appearance. Skin tightening and rejuvenation results from a thread lift continue to improve over time as collagen production increases.
