FACELIFT IN MANHATTAN, NYC
Are stress lines, wrinkles, sagging skin, and more causing you to look older? Want a fresher, more youthful appearance? A facelift performed by board-certified Manhattan plastic surgeon and general surgeon Richard W. Swift, Jr., M.D., F.A.C.S. can give you the youthful look you crave.
WHAT IS A FACELIFT?
A facelift is modification of the face using plastic surgery. Patients who would like to change a certain aspect of their facial features for a more youthful appearance are perfect candidates for a facelift. As a patient age, they may notice his facial skin begins to sag, particularly around the eyes and the jaw. A facelift can dramatically reduce this sagging, as well as smooth creases surrounding the mouth, eyes and nose.
BENEFITS OF A FACELIFT
Our society increasingly values a youthful appearance. A good first impression can mean the difference between getting hired for that new job or not. Men and women these days are feeling more and more pressure to attain a young, well-rested appearance, both personally and professionally. A facelift can enhance confidence, boost self-esteem, and open doors that may not have been an option with a more fatigued appearance.
FACELIFT BEFORE AND AFTER
Dr. Swift has archives of before and after photographs of his extremely satisfied male patients. The photos are striking, revealing a complete transformation that is so subtle people will only think that you are well-rested, and are lucky enough to be blessed with a youthful appearance. Browse through the images, and see for yourself.
HOW IS A FACELIFT PERFORMED?
Dr. Swift begins a facelift by making an incision at the temple line. The incision continues on to the area just above the ear, circles around the earlobe, and returns back to the point of origin. The skin will then be pulled outward for repositioning and tightening. If necessary, Dr. Swift may trim excess fat or skin.
PREPARING FOR A FACELIFT
Dr. Swift will have a specialized set of instructions for your preoperative regime. You have the opportunity to ask questions and address all of your concerns with Dr. Swift and his friendly, professional staff. You may be asked to fast, or avoid eating and/or drinking for a length of time before the surgery. You will need to arrange for a ride home, and may need a family member or friend to help you out for a few days after surgery. Make sure you know your pharmacy and that your pharmacy has your current insurance information, so there are no surprises when you or your care partner tries to pick up any postoperative prescriptions.
Expect the need to rest frequently. Some disorientation and stomach upset may occur. You will most likely be sent with a prescription for painkillers. Take frequent, small sips of water, and consider taking your pain medicine on a schedule for the first few days. It’s much easier to stay on top of pain than to try to “catch up” with it. If your pain becomes worse, not better in spite of your medication, it is time to place a phone call to Dr. Swift. You may notice bruising, swelling, and tenderness. These should gradually get better, with exception of the bruising. The bruises can turn an array of colors from blue, red, green, black and yellow before fading away in a few weeks, which is perfectly normal. Monitor for increased redness, swelling, heat, pain, warmth, or drainage and contact Dr. Swift if any of these occur.
