Facial wrinkles and sagging skin can give a tired, sad or angry appearance. When more conservative measures cannot achieve adequate rejuvenation of the face, a mid or full facelift is the procedure of choice. Many shortcut "fad" procedures have cost patients time and money with short-term results.
Dr. Schoenberg has always provided his patients with the resources to make an educated decision as to why the classic surgical facelift procedure has stood the test of time, providing patients with a refreshed and youthful appearance for many years.
Modifications to the Traditional Face Lift
Dr. Schoenberg performs a number of modifications to the traditional face lift to reduce recovery time, have results last even longer and, most importantly, to maintain a natural, un-operated look. The technique he employs restores and secures facial muscles to their original position thereby treating the whole face not just the skin. Since there is less tension on the skin, Dr. Schoenberg's patients have a natural, softer look with definition along the jaw line and neck without visible tightness. Dr. Schoenberg takes special care to hide incision lines inside the ear so female patients may wear their hair up after surgery. Incisions are precisely tailored to provide maximum camouflage for male patients' individual hair lines. With the aid of various vitamin and herbal supplements to expedite recovery by reducing bruising and swelling, most patients can resume normal daily activity within 7-10 days.
Cheek or Chin Implants
The appearance of full cheeks can have a major impact on a person's self-confidence whose cheeks have thinned or sunken due to age, illness or weight loss. Occasionally, cheek or chin implants are performed in conjunction with a face lift to further rejuvenate the middle and lower face. Implant sizes and shapes are tailored to each patient's desired appearance. The implant materials that are used are non-reactive and feel natural.
For less advanced degrees of aging, Dr. Schoenberg modifies the face lift procedure by using a shorter incision. The key to the face lift procedure performed by Dr. Schoenberg is that he customizes the procedure for each individual patient and, carefully addresses areas of concern with patience, precision and respect.
"No one knows I had a face lift. My family has never seen anything like what he's done for me."
