dr-vitolo-faceliftA facelift by Dr. Vitolo can considerably reduce signs of aging. In this procedure, Dr. Vitolo removes excess fat, tightens the underlying muscles of the face, and redrapes the skin around the neck and the lower half of the face. In facelift surgery, incisions are made in inconspicuous places behind the hairline and in natural folds of the face and ears. Dr. Vitolo manipulates the facial tissue through these incisions or uses the minimally invasive endoscopic facelift technique to address sagging and wrinkles in specific areas of the face. Deep creases that form between the nose and mouth, or other sagging problems in the center of the face, may be more satisfactorily treated with the mid facelift procedure. If desired, facelifts can be performed in conjunction with another procedure such as a brow lift , eyelid surgery, or rhinoplasty. If your problem areas are limited to the neck, Dr. Vitolo may recommend a more conservative procedure known as a neck lift.

Our practice has provided hundreds of patients from New York City, Brooklyn, Staten Island, New Jersey, and beyond with endoscopic ‘no visible scar’ facelift surgery, an extremely natural-looking and minimally invasive approach to a smoother, younger-looking face. This endoscopic technique has several advantages over traditional facelift surgery. Dr. Robert Vitolo also offers eyebrow / mid facelift surgery for patients with sagging localized in the midface (cheek and mouth) area.

Endoscopic Scar Less Facelift

The endoscopic facelift is ideal for patients with a minimal to moderate amount of excess skin. This procedure eliminates the need for the traditional ear to ear and hairline incisions used in conventional facelift surgery. Instead, the incisions are relatively short—1/2 inch long, in most cases—and are hidden in the hairline. The incisions heal to barely visible fine white lines. Through these incisions, Dr. Vitolo uses an endoscope, a type of small television camera, to carefully determine the location and the amount of facial tissue to be tightened.

Benefits of Endoscopic Facelift vs. Standard Facelift

The endoscopic facelift approach has many benefits over traditional facelift surgery. In the endoscopic approach, several tiny incisions are made, instead of the long incision in front of the entire ear that is necessary to perform traditional facelift surgery. Smaller incisions mean a minimally invasive procedure with smaller, more discreet scars and a more comfortable, speedy recovery period. In addition, because Dr. Vitolo can see through the endoscope exactly where a patient’s facial sagging is localized, this procedure is easily customizable and, therefore, results in an eminently natural, rather than stretched, facial appearance. Patients who undergo endoscopic facelift surgery do not look as they’ve had “work done,” they simply look like younger, more rejuvenated versions of themselves.
