Certain life events, such as hormonal changes, aging, sun damage, weight fluctuation, and smoking can unfortunately take a toll on one’s face and skin. This can cause the eyes, neck, and chin to droop, sag, and appear creased and wrinkled. These changes are a direct result of muscle loss, muscle elasticity, and lax skin. With a facelift procedure (also referred to as Rhytidectomy) you can visually turn back the clock. A facelift may also be combined with injectable fillers, such as Botox, and lasers to completely erase any signs of aging or damage. Dr. Racanelli has the training necessary to provide you with the one of the best facelifts Brooklyn can show for.

Dr. Racanelli’s facelift surgery includes an incision that starts at the temple and follows the patient’s natural hairline down in front and around the ear. This type of incision is well hidden beneath the hairline, making it almost undetectable. Once the incision has been made, Dr. Racanelli tightens the muscles underneath the skin. This technique removes unwanted tension from the skin, and provides longer lasting results. Finally, any excess skin is removed before Dr. Racanelli performs his signature three-layer closure.

Routinely, a facelift can take between one hour and four hours depending upon the extent of surgery required, to create the desired look.

Neck lift

Facelift procedures are frequently performed in conjunction with a neck lift, for a more complete rejuvenation. A neck lift focuses upon any loose hanging skin and muscles that have caused the neck area to sag. This procedure can be performed in conjunction with a traditional facelift.

No matter what your reasons are for seeking out a facelift, you can expect to leave, finally looking as young as you feel. The results of this procedure are often met with a newfound feeling of confidence and wellbeing. Dr. Racanelli aims to grant you with the best facelift Brooklyn can administer.
