Face & Neck Procedures
Facial Cosmetic Surgery in New York City & Long Island, NY
Go ahead, dare to look as young as you feel!
Why succumb to time and gravity if you don’t have to? There are a host of advanced surgical techniques that can help you look as young as you feel. With just a nip and tuck, we can help you restore the vibrant, youthful look you’ve been looking for.
Aging takes a toll on the best of us. Wrinkles and creases are a result of constant muscle movement in the face over years and years, as well as the natural loss of collagen, elastin, and fat in the skin. Additional factors that don’t help include: sun exposure, stress, smoking, hormonal imbalances. But don’t feel alone – all adults over the age of 40 experience signs of aging, and some do even earlier than that. And for people with facial scars, burns, or lacerations, we have a solution for you.
At MAXiM Facial Aesthetics, we specialize solely on procedures of the face and neck. Contact us to find out if you’re a good candidate for facial cosmetic surgery.
Some of our most popular treatments include:
Easily the most common facial aesthetic surgery we perform at MAXiM Facial Aesthetics, a mini-facelift focuses on the troublesome lower third of the face, tightening the skin of the cheeks and jowls. It is performed via small incisions around the ears. The benefits are less scarring, swelling, and pain than is typical in a full facelift. This type of procedure is ideal for anyone noticing early signs of aging: wrinkles, creases, sagging skin.
A full or traditional facelift (rhytidectomy) may employ multiple techniques, but in all cases, excess skin is removed, underlying tissue tightened, and the remaining skin is redraped over a contoured area for a rejuvenated overall look. Fat loss is restored, adding a fresh fullness to the face.
Often performed in conjunction with a facelift, a necklift (platysmaplasty) targets sagging skin of the jawline and neck, with incisions made behind the ears and under the chin. Excess fatty deposits under the chin are removed, either through liposuction or surgical excision, and loose neck muscles tightened – for a better-defined chin and neck.
A necklift is sometimes referred to as a chin tuck.
Patients not wanting a complete necklift, can opt for these less invasive options.
A neck liposuction provides the beautiful neckline you desire by suctioning excess fat from under the chin, without any additional work in the area (it doesn’t address sagging skin, for example). For many patients, liposuction alone is enough to obtain the desired results.
Neck contouring is entirely dependent on a patient's desired outcome. It may involve reshaping the chin or removing the sagging skin of “turkey neck.”
Liposuction and contouring of the neck may be performed individually or combined in a single procedure, or with other facial procedures.
Chin implants can change the profile of your face – for people with no jawline definition or receding chins. The surgery enhances the length, width, or volume of the chin to add a pleasing balance and symmetry to the face.
This procedure addresses the issue of a loss of volume in the face due to the natural loss of fat in the skin over time.
Facial fat transfer (or grafting) uses a patient’s own fat tissue from elsewhere on the body (such as the abdomen or thighs) to make the skin look fuller and more radiant.
Only tiny amounts of fat are removed from the body, and it is injected into specific areas of the face.
Ear surgery (otoplasty) is often done to repair damage to the outer ear due to trauma or to correct congenital defects. Ear lobe repair is a reconstructive procedure to surgically adjust stretched or sagging earlobes due to piercing-related complications or other causes.
Lip lifts and lip implants are surgical, longer-lasting alternatives to dermal fillers and injectables.
Lip lifts are an increasingly popular procedure in which the upper lip is elevated to create a more aesthetically pleasing shape and the appearance of fuller lips. Lip implants – which surgically place an implant, typically of silicone or other pliable substance, into one or both lips – offer a more permanent solution for patients with thin lips, or to improve lip definition.
Patients choosing a lip lift or lip implant may wish to also address any fine lines that may currently be present around the mouth. The experts at MAXiM Facial Aesthetics can best advise whether nonsurgical procedures such as a chemical peel or laser therapy could enhance your lip surgery results.
The Buccal fat pad (sometimes called Bichat’s fat pad) refers to the fat masses located between the nostrils and corners of the mouth. At MAXiM Facial Aesthetics, we perform an excision procedure to remove some of the fatty tissue in this area to thin a patient’s cheeks and improve contour of the face.
Because dimples – the slight indent in the skin of the cheek – are an irresistibly cute addition to any smile, patients without them sometimes ask for a dimpleplasty.
In this minimally invasive surgical procedure, a muscle inside the cheek is secured with a suture that, when tightened, creates the tell-tale hollow of a dimple.
Men may be interested in a dimpleplasty that adds a charming dimple to the chin.
Not ready just yet for surgery? Why not try this popular, minimally invasive procedure in which our clients receive a complete facial rejuvenation by harnessing the regenerative power of adult stem cells – without having to undergo any incisions or lifting of skin on the face.
A stem cell facelift involves making tiny injections of stem cells obtained from elsewhere in the patient's body into areas of the face, with the goal of replacing existing damaged skin cells with new, skin cells containing more collagen and elastin for tighter, younger-looking skin.
Sometimes our patients prefer to combine certain procedures. We’ve arranged some of their best ideas into special package deals as follows:
Neck Liposuction + Necklift + Neck Tightening
Mini-Facelift + Necklift
