Connecticut Plastic Surgeon Offers Customized Facelift Procedures for Each Unique Patient

Dr. Fredric Newman Combines Blepharoplasty, Rhinoplasty, Forehead Lift, and Liposuction With Facelift and Mini-Facelift Procedures to Address Patient-Specific Needs During the Facial Rejuvenation Process

DARIEN, CT--(Marketwired - Jun 11, 2013) - Dr. Fredric Newman, a Fairfield county plastic surgeon, believes no type of plastic surgery has a greater effect on a patient's facial appearance than a facelift procedure. He seeks to provide his patients at the Aesthetic Surgery Center with natural-looking results that restore the fullness and facial contours that are associated with youth.

According to Dr. Newman, if a patient is looking for a complete rejuvenation of the face, there is no substitute for a facelift. A facelift procedure simultaneously addresses a variety of patient concerns that come with the aging process through techniques that:

  • Remove excess skin
  • Tighten facial muscles
  • Smooth the skin
  • Give a more youthful appearance

The majority of Dr. Newman's facelift patients are men and women 40 years of age or older. The benefits of a facelift procedure include the elimination of sagging skin, reducing the appearance of jowls, and rejuvenating the neck. As a result, patients can look younger, healthier, and better rested.

Some patients opt to have additional procedures performed simultaneously to compliment their facelift. Dr. Newman says his facelift patients often combine procedures such as:

  • Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty)
  • Nose surgery (rhinoplasty)
  • Forehead lift
  • Laser skin resurfacing

By combining multiple procedures together, the rejuvenating results of the facelift are enhanced. Conversely, some of Dr. Newman's younger patients want to address some of their concerns but do not feel they need a traditional facelift procedure. These patients may choose a mini-facelift (or mid-facelift) instead.

A mini-facelift is an alternative to a full facelift that still rejuvenates a patient's facial features without a full facelift surgery. The procedure repositions the fat and tissue of the cheeks, reducing the appearance of excess skin, softening the jowls, and forming a clean jaw line. Some mini-facelift patients also opt to have Dr. Newman perform liposuction of the neck for a more complete rejuvenation. The benefit of a mini-facelift is that the procedure requires less surgical work and therefore a shorter recovery time compared to a traditional facelift.

During the consultation process, Dr. Newman reviews with his Fairfield county plastic surgery patients the full range of options available to them. He works with his patients to develop a tailored treatment plan that addresses each patient's specific areas of concern. Since facial plastic surgery can change a patient's appearance so dramatically, Dr. Newman recommends prospective patients research the best facial plastic surgeon available to them and choose one who is experienced in the specific procedures that fit the patient's individual needs.
