Facial Surgery Q & A

How can a facelift or neck-lift improve my appearance?

A facelift is among the most popular cosmetic surgeries. This procedure can take years off your facial appearance, helping you look younger and more well-rested. 

During your facelift, Dr. Schuster removes or repositions the skin and fat that give your face its shape. Muscles can be lifted and tightened, and your skin is pulled taut prior to closing the incisions. 

Recovery from a facelift can take a couple of weeks, but you’ll be able to resume non-strenuous activities within a few days after your procedure. You can expect your results to last 5-10 years depending on how your body adjusts and the genetic factors that influence the aging process. 

It’s also possible to incorporate facial implants into your facelift procedure. These implants can refine the shape of your cheekbones and chin. A neck-lift is also commonly performed at the same time as a facelift and works to remove excess fat and skin and create a tighter neck profile. 

What is blepharoplasty?

Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, is a procedure to improve the shape and positioning of your eyelids. As time passes, changes in your facial tissues can cause your eyelids to sag, droop, or become puffy no matter how much rest you get. Dark circles and bags can develop under your eyes. 

Dr. Schuster has perfected several surgical techniques to reduce or remove excess fat, muscle tissue, and skin in the upper and lower eyelids. These are delicate procedures because of the size of the area and the need to create an outcome that does not interfere with the function of the eyelids. 

Some men and women pursue eyelid surgery for strictly cosmetic reasons, but for others, changes in their eyelids are interfering with normal vision. In such cases, eyelid surgery may be covered by health insurance. 

What can fat transfers do for my facial appearance?

Fat cells perform an important function of energy storage, but they can also change your appearance for better or worse. Fat transfer is a surgical procedure that harvests excess fat cells from one area of your body, commonly the abdomen or buttocks, and deposits it in another. 

Fat transfers can replace lost facial volume that occurs naturally over time. Dr. Schuster prepares the harvested fat before drawing it into syringes. He uses a combination of outstanding scientific training and an artistic eye to determine exactly where to inject those fat cells to improve facial contouring. 

One in place, a percentage of the transferred fat cells will settle in and thrive in their new location. You’ll enjoy more youthful, rounded facial contouring for many years to come.
