Frequently Asked Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Questions

Dr. Lloyd Hoffman, a Manhattan, NYC top Cosmetic Plastic Surgeon has compiled some of the most frequently asked Plastic Surgery questions from patients ranging from topics such as facelift plastic surgery, MACS facelift, tummy tuck, and other cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgery procedures. We invite you to explore our website and to contact Dr. Hoffman if you have any questions.

Cosmetic Plastic Surgery

What are some of the benefits of Cosmetic Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery?
Patients who undergo Cosmetic Plastic Surgery in New York can look forward to gaining self-confidence and a sense of well-being from looking, feeling and functioning at their best. For those who wish to enhance their appearance, today's cosmetic procedures offer the opportunity to sculpt physical features and improve self-esteem. Reconstructive procedures can correct a wide range of physical abnormalities caused by accidents, disease and congenital defects, helping patients to enjoy full and normal lives.

Facelift, Face Lift or Facial Plastic Surgery

What causes our skin to age?
Over time, the relentless affects of gravity changes the appearance of our face. Skin stretches and droops resulting in excess skin of the jaw and neck. A New York, NYC Facelift helps restore the look of your youth by selectively canceling out those features which signify age. The cheeks are elevated, folds are flattened, jowls tightened, and the neck is re-draped. Your appearance is not replaced, but your younger appearance is restored. 

Is there only one type of Facelift?
No. There are several variations of Facelift. Skin-only Face lift were popular many years ago and are still used in select situations. Intermediate depth face lifts achieve a lift at deeper levels. Deep plane facelifts strive to achieve these changes just above the bones of the face. After a thorough evaluation by Top Facelift Specialist Dr. Hoffman, the technique that is best for you will be selected. [read more about Facelift]

What type of anesthesia is used during a Facelift?
Dr. Hoffman usually performs these Facelift procedures under local anesthesia with sedation by a board certified anesthesiologist of his choosing

Where will my incisions be placed and what can I expect during my Facelift recovery?
The Face Lift incisions are designed to become nearly unperceivable; just in front of the ear and wrapped around to the hairline of the neck. The following day, the dressings are removed. Sutures are removed over a period of days as you heal. The amount of swelling experienced varies, but you may resume most normal activities within two weeks. After three weeks most of the postoperative signs of Facelift surgery will resolve.

Neck Lift

What causes our neck to look old?
As we age, gravity and fluctuations in weight can cause our neck to develop excess fat and a looser, less defined jaw-line. A neck lift, sometimes referred to as a mini-Facelift or neck contouring, is a long lasting solution that can help create a youthful, more defined and attractive jaw-line. However, it’s important to know that a neck lift will not treat an aging face, which may require a Facelift.

What is involved in a Neck Lift procedure?
A neck lift typically is a combination of fat removal with liposuction and skin tightening. The procedure can last anywhere between 45 minutes to three hours, depending on the situation. There is minimal downtime after surgery. Most patients can return to work and normal activities within 3 – 7 days. Final results are long lasting and can be visible after swelling has completely diminished (4 – 6 months).

Are there alternative procedures to a Neck Lift?
For a select group of older patients, a direct excision of the ‘waddle’, may be a good alternative. This can be accomplished with local anesthesia and minimal down time.

Chin Implant - Chin Augmentation

What is the benefit of Chin Augmentation?

Chin implants or chin augmentation is a commonly requested procedure. The chin is an important reference point in relationship to the rest of the facial features such as the neck, nose, lips, and forehead. In-fact, a Chin implants can significantly strengthen facial features, enhance the profile of the face, and create better overall facial harmony.

How do I select which Chin Implant is right for me?
There are a variety of Chin implant materials to consider, and Dr. Hoffman can help guide you through understanding your selection. There are also two methods for performing this procedure. Patients can choose to have the Chin implant inserted either through an incision beneath the chin or inside the mouth, below the lip. The latter option is a good option to consider because it avoids visible scaring.

MACS Facelift

Why is the MACS Facelift so popular?
I believe that the MACS Facelift patients are the happiest patients we see. Usually, these patients have thought a lot about what bothers them about the facial aging process. It generally comes down to the jowls and the hanging neck. They enter the office with some trepidation; their fears center around “not wanting to look different”, being pulled too tightly, downtime and anesthesia. We spend a great deal of time discussing these and other pertinent issues.
In over 20 years of surgical practice, I have never been excited as I now am with the Facelift. This Facelift technique addresses the primary concern that most women (and men) have in terms of avoiding that windswept pulled look. This elegant, yet simple Facelift procedure was developed by Drs. Tonnard and Verpaele in Belgium. In essence, it is a short scar technique, with an upward pull, and minimal undermining of skin.

What are the benefits of the MACS Facelift compared to a traditional Facelift?
The short scar technique allows for a temporal hairline incision, which continues into the ear. It is hidden and does not extend behind the ear, so patients can generally wear their hair pulled back. The upward pull, as opposed to up and back, is more natural, as it counteracts the effects of gravity. There is less lifting up of the skin compared to traditional lifts. Once this patch of skin is elevated, the tissue underneath is tightened with purse string sutures, in order to provide long lasting results.

What can I expect during the MACS Facelift procedure?

The MACS Facelift is performed under local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia, whichever the patient prefers. The operation is an out patient procedure, which takes about two and one half hours to perform. Patients are generally bruised and swollen for 1 to 2 weeks. The potential complications of bleeding and infection are extremely rare.

What are patients saying about the MACS Facelift?
Patients tend to be referred by friends and family members who have had the Facelift plastic surgery procedure. They are very satisfied and enthusiastic about the ‘natural look’, the quick recovery and local anesthesia. This has revolutionized my practice by providing a superior cosmetic surgical procedure for facial rejuvenation.  Several so called non invasive techniques have been recently marketed, such as barbed sutures, lasers and filling materials. They sound appealing because of the minimal down time and immediate results. However, they can never duplicate quality and longevity of a MACS Facelift.
