The best surgical technique for a facelift has been debated at every plastic surgery meeting for decades. Nevertheless, no one can tell what “type” of a facelift a particular patient underwent by looking at photographs of a patient after the procedure.
Dr. Teitelbaum is proficient at all of the major facelift techniques. Instead of operating as if “one size fits all,” he selects his method based on what best sculpts an individual patient’s face.
The more aggressive procedures have a greater risk of injury to nerves that can result in temporary or even long term loss of muscle function; recovery can take longer; there can be more swelling; and there can be more pain. Dr. Teitelbaum will use these techniques when they offer a patient particular benefit.
Regardless of method, what is most noticed about a facelift is what parts of the face are lifted, how much they are moved, and whether the scars are placed inconspicuously so that the ear and the hairline look natural. Dr. Teitelbaum excels at all of these aspects of a facelift and offers his patients a gorgeous and long lasting improvement without the telltale signs of surgery.
