His techniques also allow for smaller incisions, reduced recovery time, and more rapid return to normal activities and work.

During consultation with Dr. Schulman, he will evaluate the appearance of your entire face and neck.  You will learn about the causes of facial aging and how a face lift procedure will reverse these signs of aging. He will discuss the various surgical techniques that will best meet your needs. You will learn about anesthesia choices, the facility options, and the typical recovery process.

Dr. Schulman will discuss with you a comprehensive treatment plan for facial rejuvenation which may include other procedures such as eyelid surgery, forehead lifting, or chemical peels.

Facelift Surgery and Recovery

During facelift surgery, Dr. Schulman will make an incision in front of the ear in natural creases. This incision will then extend a variable amount into the hairline and behind the ear depending on the amount of excess skin that you have. During the procedure, he will elevate the facial skin, exposing the underlying fat, and muscles.  He will then meticulously suspend these underlying structures back to their normal, youthful position. The excess skin of the face and neck is then removed.

You will return home the same day and Dr. Schulman will assist you throughout the entire recovery period.  The recovery is remarkable painless, with the majority of Dr. Schulman’s patients never taking any pain medicine.  Many patients return to work within 10 days to two weeks, depending on the amount of swelling and bruising.

The natural beauty of your results will be unveiled when swelling and bruising subsides. Dr. Schulman uses only techniques that offer longstanding results. Most patients can expect their results to last upwards of 10 years but remember, a facelift only turns back the clock, it does not stop the aging process.

Dr. Schulman’s facelift technique is highly regarded because of the natural appearing and longstanding results.  He is dedicated to providing you an improved appearance of your face and neck, while ensuring your safety.  His patient’s report an improved self esteem and an increased confidence that carries over to both their personal and professional lives.
