Rather than simply lift and pull each patient as much as possible, Dr. Teitelbaum’s philosophy is to focus on what patients need to achieve their individual beauty.
A facelift adds youth. But further, Dr. Teitelbaum believes a facelift makes a person look healthier, sexier, and more energetic. A facelift improves appearance not only due to the physical changes made, but because the buoyed spirit expresses itself through the face.
For example, some people become very wrinkled with age, yet their wrinkles convey happiness and energy. Others develop lines that can inaccurately convey negativity, making their faces look sad, angry, mean, or melancholic. A facelift can allow the patient to convey through their face the happiness and joy they are really feeling by removing the lines that belie their emotion.
