Over a lifetime, sun exposure and the natural aging process can leave your facial skin looking dull, wrinkled, and loose.
Dr. Anya Kishinevsky, serving Fairfield, Bridgeport, and Norwalk, CT, can perform a facelift to reduce signs of aging and restore a youthful appearance while preserving your defining features.
What are the advantages of facelift surgery?
In many cases, plastic surgery is simply the most effective way to improve the appearance of wrinkles, sagging, excess skin, and other cosmetic concerns.
Facelift surgery can also be used to address other problem areas, such as jowls or undefined cheeks, that may have been a concern for your entire adult life.
Our plastic surgeon can customize this cosmetic surgery to help you look and feel your very best.

The Facelift Procedure
During facelift surgery, or rhytidectomy, Dr. Kishinevsky makes an incision above the hairline to reduce the appearance of scarring. She then pulls the skin back to reveal the underlying tissue. Next, she tightens the muscles and removes excess fat before suturing the incision. The cosmetic surgery can take as long as three hours to complete and may be combined with a neck lift or other procedures.
In the facelift surgery procedure, the skin and other tissues of the forehead and cheeks, as well as tissues near the mouth and eyes, are tightened to eliminate and reduce lines and wrinkles, correct saggy skin, and alter the tired or angry look that develops with age. There are many facelift options available, depending on what specific areas are targeted:
- A lower facelift benefits the bottom portion of the face by tightening skin on the neck and jawline, and removing wrinkles from the mouth area.
- A mid facelift restores a youthful appearance to lower eyelids and cheeks by addressing skin that has lost elasticity over the years.
- If you only need minor work on specific areas of the face, a mini facelift can be performed. This type of facelift is minimally invasive, and is used to reposition, lift, or remove unwanted tissue.
The result of the facelift procedure is a refreshed and youthful-looking facial appearance that patients can enjoy for years to come. Patients are pleased with the way a facelift restores their youthful look. Patients look refreshed, and never pulled too tight or unnatural after a facelift. A facelift can be combined with our medical-grade chemical peels for exceptional results.
