Facelift in Elizabeth, NJ

What Is a Facelift?

Dr. John W. Decorato performs facelifts, or rhytidectomies, for the residents of Elizabeth, NJ, at our top-of-the-line medical facility. This cosmetic surgical procedure is designed to reduce wrinkles on the face and upper neck by lifting and adjusting the skin. Facelifts are typically performed on individuals over age 50 that have developed skin folds near the mouth or forehead. Patients can choose from a variety of facelift procedures such as mini, partial, or full lifts that tighten the skin to provide a more youthful appearance.

How Is a Facelift Performed?

Dr. Decorato spends a lot of time planning a facelift by examining a patient carefully. Detailed medical imaging is necessary to see the facial bones and underlying tissue to determine where to make incisions. Incisions for facelifts are made in difficult to see locations such as inside the nose, behind the ears, or under the hairline in order to reach muscles and lift skin tissue. Patients receive general anesthesia throughout a facelift procedure to reduce discomfort. After the procedure, patients must wear protective bandages on the face and neck to reduce swelling. A complete recovery from a facelift takes several weeks as edema and bruising decline.
