Full Facelift Surgery

His techniques soften deep lines, tighten lax skin, and restore attractive youthful contours.  Over the last 30 years, Dr. Newman has earned a reputation for helping patients achieve results that look natural. Under his care, you can expect to look like a rested and rejuvenated version of yourself - not like a plastic surgery patient.

About The Full Facelift Procedure

What is a Full Facelift?

Dr. Newman offers fully customized facelifts. Full facelift surgery usually combines a neck lift and a mid facelift. In some cases, it can also incorporate a brow lift, blepharoplasty (eyelid lift), and liposuction. Compared to most facelifts, Dr. Newman’s full facelift offers a greater range of correction to more parts of the face, resulting in a more cohesive look. In order to tighten skin, remove excess skin, and refine the underlying muscle and fat tissue of the face, incisions are placed in the hairline and other discrete areas.

The procedure is designed to address signs of aging such as lax skin and conspicuous tissue bands in the neck, sagging skin at the jawline and jowls, and a loss of definition in the cheeks and mid-face. Dr. Newman trained in fellowships with the true giants of plastic surgery and has never stopped learning in his forty years of experience as a facial plastic surgeon. He loves what he does and believes that every millimeter counts. He still calls each patient on the night of their surgery to check in on them and see how they are doing. You can rest assured that your safety and satisfaction are in the hands of a true leader in the field when you choose to undergo surgery by Dr. Newman.

Am I a Candidate For a Full Facelift?

the right treatment to meet your goals

Fairfield County full facelift surgeon Dr. Newman

If you wish to address signs of aging from the collar to the eyebrow, and are a non-smoker in good health, you are probably a candidate for a full facelift. However, not everyone is a candidate for this particular procedure. Dr. Newman’s goal is to provide you with the right treatment at the right time to provide the best results with minimal surgery.

If you are only beginning to notice subtle signs of aging, such as crows' feet or the 11s (parallel wrinkles between the eyes), you may be a better candidate for an injectable or resurfacing treatment. Or, if you are only experiencing signs of aging in a specific third of the face, you may be better suited to a mid-facelift or another more targeted treatment. During your consultation, Dr. Newman can recommend the right treatment to meet your goals. He will carefully review your medical history, assess the health of your skin, and take other factors into consideration to determine if a full facelift or other procedure can provide the best results.

Achieving Natural-Looking Results

safety and satisfaction in the hands of a true leader

The most noticeable benefit to a full facelift is the elimination of deep-seated wrinkles and saggy skin. This is particularly noticeable along the neck and jawline, but you will also see increased definition along the cheeks and mid-face. By incorporating other procedures like brow lifts into his full facelifts, Dr. Newman tailors your procedure to your look. This ensures that no two facelifts are the same. As a patient, researching surgeons and choosing the right practitioner allows you to have a significant influence on your results.

Dr. Newman is committed to meticulously tailoring treatment to each individual, an approach that is evident in the results he consistently provides. He has been recognized as one of the Top Plastic Surgeons in America by Castle Connolly’s guide to America’s Top Doctors®, among other prestigious distinctions, and has a reputation for excellence in even the most complex surgeries, such as rhinoplasty. You can rest assured that your safety and satisfaction are in the hands of a true leader in the field when you choose to undergo surgery by Dr. Newman.

The Full Facelift Procedure

What to expect during your Full Facelift

Each full facelift procedure with Fredric Newman MD, FACS begins with a consultation with Dr. Newman. Our satisfied patients (link) often compliment Dr. Newman on his capability to listen and make them feel at home. Dr. Newman believes that the key to great results is a great working relationship between doctor and patient. He takes the time to address your questions, make you feel comfortable, and tailor your surgery plan to your needs. That way, you’ll know what to expect long before your surgery day.

Surgery Day

Once you and Dr. Newman have agreed on a date for your surgery, he will give you step-by-step preparation tips so that you are ready for your procedure. This includes a list of medications to avoid before surgery that may increase the risk of bleeding. In addition, you’ll want to have somebody drive you to the surgical center on the day of surgery and be ready to drive you home after, as you will be groggy following your procedure due to the aftereffects of anesthesia. During your surgery, Dr. Newman will follow the plan you have come up with together, eliminating sagging skin from your jawline and cheeks and restoring a younger, more defined look. The surgery generally lasts from one to four hours, depending on the procedure.

Recovery

You will go home the same day as your procedure. Once you are cleared, you will need to have someone be your driver as you will be too groggy to drive. Dr. Newman will provide you with comprehensive aftercare instructions to minimize the risk of complications during your recovery, including a medication strategy to minimize discomfort. You will meet with Dr. Newman shortly after your surgery to make sure your recovery is going according to plan. Full recovery normally takes two to four weeks, but most patients can return to work after two weeks. Dr. Newman will work with you to make sure you understand your recovery range based on your specific procedure.

Full Facelift Results

You will likely not be able to see the full extent of your results immediately due to the recovery process. However, as the weeks go by, you will see your features become better defined, and your swelling will dissipate. Your wrinkles will be greatly reduced, and sagging jowls will be replaced by a slenderizing and youthful jawline. The end result will look just like you, only more refreshed and vibrant.

Full Facelift FAQs

You will not feel anything during your surgery. Following your surgery, Dr. Newman will provide you with a complete recovery plan to minimize discomfort, including medications when necessary.

The cost of your full facelift will depend on the procedures you select. Because facelifts are a cosmetic procedure, your insurance will not pay for it. Dr. Newman will go through the price and payment options in detail during your consultation. The most important thing to remember is that if you plan to get a facelift, you want to get it done right the first time. Dr. Newman is a dedicated, experienced, board-certified, and fellowship-trained plastic surgeon who truly cares about his patients and takes their satisfaction personally.

There are no procedures that offer the exact same benefits as a full facelift with Dr. Newman. However, there are multiple procedures that offer less comprehensive benefits, including blepharoplasty, neck lift, and brow lifts. In addition, non-surgical solutions like dermal fillers and injectable treatments may offer temporary relief from wrinkles and volume loss. However, for truly dramatic and comprehensive facial rejuvenation, nothing compares to a full facelift.
