A facelift, also known as rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure designed to tighten lift the face and neck to a more youthful position. Facelift surgery can treat sagging skin, wrinkles, hanging jowls, and looseness in the neck. As a board certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Weiss has an extensive understanding of facial anatomy and surgical skills to help patients attain a more rested, youthful appearance.
Patients are often concerned with achieving a natural-looking appearance, not one that appears “windblown”, tight or unnatural. Rather than simply lifting the skin, Dr. Weiss utilizes the most advanced techniques to shape and contour the face by repositioning the underlying tissues and restoring youthful volume. The results are very natural appearing and beautiful.
Dr. Weiss customizes each facelift in New Orleans to meet the individual needs each patient. Dr. Weiss performs various facelift procedures for men and women of all ages in the Greater New Orleans and Metairie area including:
Deep Plane Facelift: This surgical procedure is designed to lift and tighten the deep tissues of the face and neck for a long lasting beautifully rejuvenated appearance.
Mini Facelift: A mini facelift procedure is a less invasive procedure to correct the wrinkles and sagging that exist around the lower portion of the face. This lift specifically addresses the jaw line and the lines from the corners of the mouth to the chin. Many patients choose a mini facelift because recovery is significantly shorter than that of a full facelift.
Mid-face Lift: The mid-face lift is a cosmetic procedure that addresses the mid-face area. As gravity plays its toll, our faces begin to droop and lose the plump mid-face that is synonymous with youth. Located high in the cheeks, our facial fat pads begin to descend and sag as we age. A mid-facelift will elevate and reposition this soft tissue and fat pad higher on the cheek, giving the mid-face a fuller and more youthful appearance.
Local Anesthesia Facelift New Orleans: Many patients prefer to avoid general anesthesia for their facelift procedures. During his Fellowship training, Dr. Weiss learned techniques to perform full facelift procedures using local anesthesia and oral medications in the comfort of the office setting. The benefits of local anesthesia vs. general anesthesia or IV sedation when having a cosmetic procedure such as a facelift are as follows:
- High safety profile
- Fewer side effects
- Faster recovery
- Lower cost
