Facelift in Paramus, NJ

Your face is your identity, the locus of your expression, the window to your effervescent spirit. Over time, the effects of aging creep in and start to change the face you’ve always known and presented to the world. One day, you may feel like you don’t recognize the person looking back at you in the mirror.

Various factors contribute to visible aging signs, including skin thinning, loss of facial fat, sun damage, gravity, stress, smoking, and genetics. A facelift is a cosmetic surgery that seeks to uplift, tighten, and refresh the midface, lower face, jawline, and neck, restoring radiance to your face and renewing your confidence. Most people who seek out facelift surgery don’t want to look like someone else–they want to look and feel like themselves again.

What Is a Facelift?

A facelift, or rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure designed to address signs of aging in the face and neck. The Greek root of the technical term “rhytids” means “wrinkle,” but a rhytidectomy deals not only with wrinkles but also with deeper signs of aging, such as:

  • Sagging skin
  • Fat loss
  • Nasolabial folds, which result from deeper tissue sagging
  • Jowls in the cheeks and jaw
  • Wrinkled, sagging, loose skin or excess fat near the neck

What Techniques Are Used for Facelift?

Desired outcomes for facelift surgery vary from patient to patient, and there are multiple facelift types. Dr. Nouri specializes in a variety of facelift techniques and incisions. During your consultation, you can discuss these techniques in detail to determine which one aligns with your aesthetic goals.

Standard Facelift

A standard facelift usually involves an incision that follows the hairline from the temples, around the ear, to the lower scalp. This incision allows the underlying muscles and other tissues in the midface and neck to be tightened and adjusted. When the deeper tissue work is complete, the skin is redraped over the new, uplifted contours, and excess skin is removed.

For optimal results, Dr. Nouri combines facelifts with a neck lift. A second incision may be made under the chin to address signs of aging in the neck.

MACS Facelift

The minimal access cranial suspension (MACS) facelift is a minimally invasive procedure for the face and neck. It involves a shorter incision than the standard facelift and uses purse-string sutures located in the deeper structures of the face and neck. The result is a vertical resuspension of the neck and midface with less scarring.

SMAS Plication

The superficial musculoaponeurotic system (SMAS) layer is a deep structure in the face consisting of muscle and fibrous tissue. The SMAS layer allows your surgeon to secure the face into a new position. With the SMAS plication technique, the SMAS layer is folded and sutured into place. This applies tension that results in a tighter, more youthful contour.

What Is Facelift Recovery Like?

After surgery, bandages will be wrapped around the face to minimize bruising and swelling. You will be placed under observation for about an hour before you are discharged. You will need someone to drive you home.

Dr. Nouri will provide you with specific instructions to follow as you recover; follow these carefully for the best results.

Most people can return to work after one or two weeks after a facelift, depending on their rate of healing. Every patient heals a bit differently, but bruising and swelling can last two to three weeks. A full recovery can take about two to three months for the face to normalize completely in terms of texture, returned sensation, and reduced tightness.


What Results Can I Expect From My Facelift?

As bruising and swelling subside, the final results of your facelift will appear, providing a more youthful and rested look that will help you feel more confident.

The results of a facelift can last for about 10 to 15 years. A facelift cannot stop the aging process, but your face will always look younger than it would if you never had a facelift.


How Much Does a Facelift Cost in Paramus, NJ?

The exact cost of facelift surgery depends on a variety of factors, including your chosen technique, your end goals, and more. Dr. Nouri will provide you with precise details about the cost of surgery at the time of your consultation.
