Facelift surgery, medically known as Rhytidectomy, is a highly sought-after procedure for those looking to address the visible signs of aging in the face and neck. Dr. Casian Monaco, a renowned plastic surgeon in New York City, specializes in this intricate procedure. Facelifts target common issues like pronounced nasolabial folds, marionette lines, sagging cheeks, jowls along the jawline, and loose neck tissue. The primary objective is to tighten and smooth the skin, redistribute underlying tissues, and restore a youthful contour to the face.

The Art and Science of Facelifts in New York City’s Upper East Side

Facelifts are not just about skin tightening. They involve a meticulous process of reshaping the underlying facial structure. This includes addressing the superficial-musculoaponeurotic system (SMAS), a layer of tissue critical to facial aging. Dr. Monaco’s approach varies for each patient, ensuring a personalized treatment that specifically addresses individual aging patterns. The treatment of the SMAS is a pivotal step, separate from skin adjustments, to ensure a natural and lasting outcome.

Innovative Techniques for Natural Results

The techniques used in facelift surgery have evolved significantly, allowing for more natural and enduring results. Incisions are strategically placed, often within the hairline and natural facial creases, to minimize visibility. In some cases, a small incision under the chin is necessary to effectively tighten the neck area. This meticulous approach ensures that the rejuvenating effects are noticeable yet subtle, enhancing your natural beauty without overt signs of surgery.

The Role of Facelift Surgery in Neck Rejuvenation

Facelift surgery invariably affects the neck, given the interconnected nature of facial and neck muscles. The procedure often extends to rejuvenate the neck, particularly addressing the platysma, the major neck muscle. This comprehensive approach ensures a harmonious and balanced rejuvenation, eliminating the disconnect that can occur when the face and neck are treated separately.
