A facelift is designed to smooth loose or sagging facial skin while tightening the underlying musculature for a more toned and youthful appearance. Though a very effective method of facial rejuvenation, not all patients want – or need – facelift surgery to achieve their goals. With a thorough understanding of facial anatomy and the dynamic use of injectable treatments, our surgeons at NYPSG can turn back the clock on the natural aging process with a non-surgical “liquid facelift.”
A liquid facelift is much less invasive than a traditional facelift, and typically involves little to no recovery time. With the ability to smooth fine lines and wrinkles, restore lost volume to areas such as the cheeks or lips, and enhance natural contours of the face, the results of a liquid facelift often meet or exceed the expectations of our patients. By combining the benefits of injectables such as BOTOX® Cosmetic, JUVÉDERM®, and Restylane®, you can maintain youthful skin without surgery.
Another option available is NovaThreads. NYPSG is the first plastic surgery practice in New York to offer this innovative, lifting treatment. This procedure uses Polydioxanone (PDO) NovaThreads, which are a medical device used to temporarily strengthen the contour of the face, reduce roundness, and lift sagging skin.
NovaThreads are completely absorbable and are easily inserted with a needle or a blunt tipped cannula to minimize bruising. By inserting NovaThreads, the skin heals naturally by creating new collagen around the threads. The skin gently reacts to the inserted threads and creates a temporary lifting effect that lasts for up to 18 months.
