The purpose of cosmetic enhancement is to improve one’s appearance, so it’s natural for patients to be interested in how their facelift scars will look once healed. At New York Plastic Surgical Group, our goal is to provide natural-looking results without obvious signs of treatment. As part of that objective, our plastic surgeons will place the incisions in locations that are as inconspicuous as possible.

We offer several options for facelift surgery, including a short-scar technique (called the MACS Lift), for individuals with signs of aging focused primarily on the jowls and cheeks. This procedure uses smaller incisions than a traditional facelift, if that is a concern of yours. A mini facelift is another option that can address moderate to significant skin and muscle laxity in the midfacial area.

Regardless of the technique used, our plastic surgeons will make every effort to minimize the visibility of the incisions. Additionally, most patients heal very well and find the scars to be quite inconspicuous. Non-surgical laser skin resurfacing methods can further reduce the appearance of scars, which our medical team can discuss with you during your initial consultation.

We understand you have many questions when it comes to facial rejuvenation, and we are here to help. Talk to us today to learn more about facelift recovery and what to expect.
