- Dr. Inessa Fishman
This 62-year-old woman was bothered by the appearance of her neck. Facial plastic surgeon Dr. Inessa Fishman treated her with a deep plane neck lift to address loose tissue here, and a deep plane facelift to treat her jowling and fallen facial tissues in the lower cheek. The patient is shown with great healing at just 3 weeks after surgery. She has moderate swelling and redness about her incisions, which will continue to resolve over the next few months.
Deep plane face and neck lifting are the gold standard in long-lasting and comprehensive surgical facial rejuvenation. With the advanced techniques of deep plane neck lifting and face lifting, Dr. Fishman is able to release deep ligaments of the face and neck, reposition droopy and lax tissue into a more youthful position, and provide patients with durable and natural results. Recovery from face and neck lifting surgery usually involves 10-12 days of soreness and swelling, and 3 weeks before most patients are “restaurant-ready.” Most patients return to work and social obligations within 1-2 weeks after surgery. Dr. Fishman recommends 2-3 months of recovery after deep plane face and neck lifting before planning important and photo-filled events like weddings and graduations.
About Face Lift Procedure
A surgical facelift is the most powerful facial rejuvenating procedure to treat deepened smile lines, jowls, and excess tissue along the jawline. With advancing years, stress, weight fluctuations, and hormonal changes, we develop signs of aging, and patients note that these changes often make them feel look older, more tired, or less capable than they actually feel. It is common for our patients to undergo surgical face and neck rejuvenation to help match their inner vibrant sense of self with their external appearance; and with demanding and challenging careers, enticing hobbies and travel plans, and fulfilling family obligations, it’s no wonder that men and women in Atlanta and around the country undergo facelifting and necklifting to put their best face forward! Our facial plastic surgeon Dr. Inessa Fishman commonly performs facelift surgery in combination with a neck lift and blepharoplasty (or eyelid surgery).
