Facelift / Necklift

A facelift/necklift rejuvenates the face and neck by reducing sagging skin, lifting and tightening weakened muscles of the face and neck.

Why Do People Get Facelifts/Necklifts?

The natural aging process causes loss of elasticity of the skin. As we are exposed to the sun and pollutants, deeper wrinkles start to form. The effects of gravity cause underlying facial muscles in the cheeks and neck to become loose. Skin folds appear on the cheeks, and fatty tissue can appear around the neck and jowls, causing the jawline to lose its definition.

Weakened platysma muscles of the neck separate and form a “turkey wattle.” We accumulate sagging and wrinkled skin on our necks. We may also be struggling with the appearance of an unwanted double chin. A facelift (rhytidectomy) and neck lift can reduce these signs of aging.

What Can a Facelift/Necklift Do?

A facelift/necklift can rejuvenate the face and neck by reducing sagging skin, lifting and tightening weakened muscles of the face and neck and removing excess fat underneath the skin, which smoothens out and improves wrinkles. This combination procedure can reduce the look of jowls and can address persistent muscle banding in the neck.

The Consultation

The only way to learn if you are the right candidate for a facelift/necklift is to have a thorough discussion with Dr. Sultan during a consultation. Dr. Sultan will go over the facelift and necklift in greater detail, including information regarding the recovery process.

Dr. Sultan will ask you questions about your complete medical history, including any medications you are taking and any allergies you have. He will also discuss your expectations for the procedure with you.

Dr. Sultan will perform a physical examination and may take pictures of your neck to study your features in detail. If he believes that you are a good candidate for surgery after this, he will provide you with instructions on how to prepare for the procedure and a date will be set.

Procedure Details

A rhytidectomy paired with a necklift surgery may be performed on an outpatient basis. It can take up to several hours to complete. First, anesthesia is administered in order to ensure patient comfort for the duration of surgery.

Small incisions will be made around your ears and might also be made under your chin; this give Dr. Sultan access to the underlying tissues.

Rhinoplasty

The goal of rhinoplasty is to create an aesthetically pleasing nose that functions well and harmonizes with other attractive facial features. Rhinoplasty can also help correct breathing defects and other problems with nasal function that occurred either at birth or due to injury.

Rhinoplasty is often referred to as a “nose job.” A nose that is attractive on one patient may not be as attractive on another. The goal of rhinoplasty is to create an aesthetically pleasing nose that functions well and harmonizes with other attractive facial features. It is considered by the majority of surgeons to be the most difficult and humbling operation.

Dr. Sultan appreciates this greatly and approaches all of his primary and revision rhinoplasties with definitive preoperative planning under the patient’s guidance.

Rhinoplasty surgery can:

  • Narrow down flared nostrils
  • Alter the size of your nose
  • Change the angle of your nose
  • Straighten the bridge of your nose
  • Reshape the tip of your nose

Who Can Undergo Rhinoplasty?

Cosmetic rhinoplasty is only recommended for individuals whose nasal bones are fully developed. Typically, girls can safely have a rhinoplasty performed on them for cosmetic reasons after age 15; however, boys may have to wait until after age 15, as their nasal bones may not be fully developed at that age.

If you are opting for a rhinoplasty surgery for medical reasons, you may be able to undergo rhinoplasty at a younger age.

The Nasal-Surgery Consultation

Dr. Sultan carefully reviews every candidate who is interested in undergoing rhinoplasty surgery. During your consultation, Dr. Sultan will discuss your rhinoplasty expectations and provide you with all necessary information you should know before scheduling your procedure.

If you have any medical conditions that you suffer from, you should let Dr. Sultan know during your consultation. If you smoke, you should stop at least six weeks before the procedure. You should also stop taking any medications that thin your blood, such as painkillers or aspirin.

Dr. Sultan will physically examine your nose and take photos to study the aesthetic changes that can be made to your nose during rhinoplasty surgery.

He will gather all the required information needed to review your candidature for a rhinoplasty and then inform you whether it is safe for you to go forward with the procedure.

The Rhinoplasty Procedure

Rhinoplasty is a complex procedure that requires a skilled and experienced surgeon like Dr. Sultan. You will be given either local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia before your procedure.

Dr. Sultan will then make small incisions on the inside of the nostrils (closed rhinoplasty) or on the skin between your nostrils (open rhinoplasty). He will reshape the nose, then close the incision.

Rhinoplasty Recovery

You may potentially have a nasal splint placed over your nose immediately after surgery. You will most likely experience some bruising and swelling around the eyes. These side effects usually go down after a few days but will take up longer to ameliorate. Swelling in your nose can take up to six months to fully go down.

It is important to remember that each patient will recover at a slightly different rate after rhinoplasty surgery. If you have any questions or concerns about the healing process, be sure to ask Dr. Sultan.

Eyelid Surgery

This procedure can correct droopiness and wrinkling of the upper eyelids and/or puffy lower eyelid bags.

Eyelid surgery can correct droopiness and wrinkling of the upper eyelids and/or puffy lower eyelid bags.

Since the eyes are the focal point of visual contact, they are often the first to show signs of a tired, aged appearance.Many people are unhappy with the appearance of their eyelids and wish they were less wrinkled, puffy, or saggy. With blepharoplasty, we can make your eyelids look youthful and rejuvenated.

Browlift / Forehead Lift

The browlift is a surgical procedure, designed to provide a smooth, lifted forehead.

As we age, the eyebrows tend to sag and start pushing down our upper eyelid skin. This can give a tired look to the eyes, as well as an angry or scowled look to the face. The browlift is a surgical procedure, designed to provide a smooth, lifted forehead. Dr. Sultan gives patients natural looking results; restoring a rested and youthful appearance. Furthermore, the browlift may improve visual function, as it raises sagging skin.

Chin Augmentation

Chin augmentation surgery creates a more defined chin and jawline and can have a significant impact on one's appearance.

The chin augmentation procedure is a low-risk procedure that can create dramatic but natural-looking results. It is often performed with other facial plastic surgery procedures as a way to maintain facial balance or improve the overall facial aesthetic. Chin augmentation is most often paired with rhinoplasty to achieve a balanced profile. A chin implant can be added to a facelift to achieve a smooth, aesthetically-contoured, youthful jawline as well.

Facial and Neck Liposuction

Fat accumulates easily in the neck, especially under the chin, causing the appearance of a double chin.

Excess fatty deposits in the chin, neck and cheeks may give the appearance of being overweight, or make the neck look like it hangs or cheeks look like they droop. Liposuction is the most effective treatment available for the removal of localized fatty deposits that don’t respond to changes in diet and exercise.

Otoplasty

Many people are self-conscious about ears that stick out, and feel that it undermines their attractiveness.

Otoplasty (ear surgery) is a plastic surgery procedure in which prominent ears are set back closer to the head and/or large ears are reduced in size. Though the procedure is most often performed on children between the ages of four and fourteen, otoplasty may also be performed on adults.

Earlobe Repair

The earlobe is a common area that can become stretched, torn, or deformed from jewelry or trauma.

Earlobe repair is a common procedure for men and women, children and adults. Years of wearing heavy earrings can stretch the earlobe, making it difficult to wear studs. Also, traumatic tears of the earlobe can result in an unattractive cosmetic appearance. Reestablishing the contour and symmetry of the earlobe helps to restore the attractive natural appearance to the ear and allow the patient to re-pierce their ear.

Mohs Reconstructive Surgery
