Dr. Bartsich is a top-notch cosmetic surgeon in Manhattan. I have worked with her personally and seen she has excellent hands and takes meticulous care with each step of the operation. She also has really great bedside manners. Highly recommend!!
Dr Wang is excellent surgeon. He cares very much for his parie ts and does the best job possible. I would highly recommended Dr Wang for any type of surgical procedures.
My experience with Dr. Bruno and his team has been nothing but good! Prior to choosing Dr.Bruno for my breast augmentation, I had a consultation with another doctor. She stated that my type of BA would require a complex procedure that would increase the price of my BA significantly. After doing my research and posting on RealSelf, I felt that I needed a second opinion because what she said I had was not confirmed by other doctors. It left me feeling she was being dishonest about what I needed just to hike up the cost of the surgery. Dr. Bruno had been referred to me by a friend that also had a BA so I decided to book a consultation with him and I am sooooo glad I did. I've had such a pleasant experience with his team since the first time I reached out to them. Joselle has always been really sweet and accommodating. I explained to her that I would like to see Dr. Bruno as soon as possible because I had only a few days to decide whether I would go with the other surgeon (the other surgeon's quote was only good for a few days because of a promotion they had). She gave me an appointment slot that worked for me, later she ended up calling me the next day to let me know that there was an appointment that was a couple days earlier than my original appointment. I really appreciated it that as I had very limited time to make up my mind. The day of my consultation came and after meeting with Dr. Bruno, it was clear to me that I would be going with him for my BA. He explained the procedure in great detail and answered of all my questions honestly. It was completely different experience than my consultation with the other surgeon who was pushy and seemed annoyed that I had tons of questions. He and his team made me feel very comfortable and I never felt pressured by them, as I did with the other surgeon I consulted. Both Marisol and Joselle were just as helpful with answering all my questions as Dr. Bruno. Throughout the entire BA journey, his staff would call me to remind me of appointments as well as check up on me once I had the procedure. They genuinely care about their patients. As far as the results go, I am only three weeks out from surgery but I already love what I am seeing and can't wait for my final result as I really admire Dr. Bruno's work from the before and after pictures I have seen of other patients. I highly recommend Dr. Bruno and his team! If I ever decide to have other procedures, I will definitely be returning to him.THANK YOU!
I was referred to Dr. Jejurikar by Dr. Gardner and I’m SO HAPPY that I finally went to see him. He’s the best (FIRST) experience I had with plastic surgery and I’d recommend him to anyone who’s contemplating having a procedure done. He and his entire office staff are friendly, patient and so very helpful.
I only went to Dr. Zarrabi for my consultation and haven't yet had my surgery but I had one of the best experiences I've ever had with a doctor. He was patient, kind, thorough. He answered every question I had and never rushed me once. He went through insurance possibilities with me and explained all of my options at length. I hope I can schedule my surgery with him soon.
After searching for a facial plastic surgeon for months, I was referred to Dr. Zimm by a physician colleague who praised him so highly after he did her rhinoplasty. I have to say that Dr. Zimm is truly the doctor’s doctor. As a physician myself, I sought out the best surgeon to work on my face. I had FaceTite done as well as chin augmentation using filler. I am beyond thrilled with the results. Dr. Zimm took a great deal of time explaining the various procedures that could be done and why these procedures were well suited to accomplish my goals. He was patient, kind, and explained things clearly and answered all of my questions. And on top of that, his staff was delightful. I highly recommend Dr. Zimm if you are considering any cosmetic procedure on your face. Seriously, the best decision I made.
I don't know where to start or how to say thank you to Dr. Schwartz and his amazing staff for all their support and care on my past visit. For as long as I can remember, I've had one big insecurity that I decided I would just learn to deal with because of my fear to go under the knife. I'd figured I would just avoid photos or just wear a filter in them...however, I met with Dr. Schwartz and he assured me he could fix my issue without surgery. I had a thorough consultation with him and next thing you know I was signed up for my appointment to have injectables for the first time in my 33 years. I always said when I felt ready to have my "pick me up" I was going to knock on a doctors door whose work and credentials were in line. Dr. Schwartz not only took care of all my issues but he delivered me my dream nose...I honestly can not stop looking at myself in the mirror. It's honestly so perfectly done and I just can't put into words what a confidence boost this has done for me...especially in my line of work. I thank you Dr. Schwartz...for your skill and sweet nature during my time spent with you. To your amazing staff...thank you for all your kind words...it really meant a lot to me! I found a place where I will be going to have all my beauty needs met from here on out:) I want to encourage anyone curious about anything that has been burdensome to you...to have a consult with Dr. Schwartz...I'm so glad I did.
I traveled from Colorado to see Dr. Hubbard for a breast augmentation and all I can say is WOW!!!! Not only is he an exceptionally skilled surgeon, he has the best bedside manner of any doctor around. He and his staff (Ms. Rheanna and the rest of the ladies :)) immediately made me feel at ease, from the initial consult to the aftercare process which I am still in. I woke up the next day with minimal pain and have absolutely zero discomfort as we speak...and it's only four days later!! Dr. Hubbard and his staff are the consummate professionals and will immediately make you feel like family...how many other doctors and their staff can you say that about? I know for 100% certainty I will only be seeing Dr. Hubbard for all medical procedures, regardless of where I live!!

A facelift, also referred to as rhytidectomy, is a cosmetic surgery that aims to restore a more youthful facial appearance. It can reduce sagging or folds of skin on the cheeks, jawline, and other areas in the face that changes shape due to aging.
As we age, our skin loses their elasticity and become looser. Fat deposits also decrease in some areas and increase in others. This leads to sagging and wrinkles. With a facelift, these problems can be addressed by lifting and tightening the sagging facial tissue. The procedure may involve removing excess skin that’s causing “jowls”, smoothing out wrinkles or folds, and tightening facial tissue. It can also have a rejuvenating effect on the areas below the eyes and the deep lines from the corners of the mouth to the sides of the nose.
It is important to bear in mind that a facelift is not a treatment for creases around the nose, superficial wrinkles, and irregularities in skin color. It also cannot stop the aging process or change your fundamental appearance.
In terms of aesthetics, your surgeon will recommend the best choice for your own comfort. You may
There are three types of incision used in a facelift, which depends on the degree of change you would like to see and the technique your surgeon will use.
In general, your surgeon elevates the skin and tighten the underlying tissues and muscles after making an incision. Fat in your face and neck may be removed, sculpted, or redistributed. Then, the incision is stitched.
You should be able to leave the hospital on the same day of the surgery if local anesthetic is used. However, if the surgery is done under general anesthetic, you may need to stay in the hospital for about 1 to 2 days. You should plan to stay in United States for around 7 to 10 days following the surgery because you will have to attend follow-up checkups. During the checkups, your surgeon will monitor your healing and remove your stitches.
Expect to experience bruising, swelling, and some discomfort for the first 3 to 5 days. You may be able to return to work and some light activities within 7 to 14 days, but avoid any vigorous activities for about 5 to 6 weeks. It may take 2 to 3 months until your face feels normal in terms of texture and sensibility.
Your surgeon will provide detailed post-operative instruction. To avoid any complications and maximize the result, you need to follow all instructions closely. You may have to avoid any clothing that is pulled over the head, such as t-shirts and sweaters. You should also avoid using makeup and direct sun exposure for about three weeks, as well as coloring, bleaching, or perming your hair for six weeks following the surgery.
To maintain the results of your facelift, you need to avoid smoking, use sunblock, moisturize your face daily, maintain weight stability, follow a healthy diet plan, exercise regularly, and live a generally healthy lifestyle.
Approximately 80% to 90% of people who had a facelift is reported to achieve a positive result after their procedure. However, although great results are expected after a facelift, there can be no guarantee. In some cases, you may need more than one surgery to achieve your desired result. To make sure your surgery is successful; you need to ensure your surgeon is skilled and experienced. You also have to follow your surgeon’s instructions, from the preparation to the aftercare.
Note that the results of a facelift are not permanent because no cosmetic procedure can stop aging. Your facial skin may begin to droop again as you age. The average facelift lasts between 7 and 10 years before you have aged enough to need additional work.
As with other surgical procedures, a facelift can carry some possible risks and complications, which may include nerve injury, hematoma, scarring, skin loss, and hair loss. Some of these risks can be managed with appropriate care and medication. However, you need to be aware of the long term and permanent complications. While they are rare, they may alter your appearance significantly.
If you do not want to (or cannot) undergo a facelift, you can opt for an alternative.
Mini-facelift - a less invasive procedure that also aims to lift the wrinkles and sagging skin in the lower part of the face. Because it involves a smaller, s-shaped incision around the ear, it cannot address neck sagging or excess skin.
Botox - it reduces the appearance of wrinkles and usually takes about 24 to 72 hours to take effect. A botox injection uses botulinum toxin to temporarily paralyze muscle activity.
Fillers - unlike botox, fillers fill the line, crease, or the general facial area with different kinds of substances. These fillers can be used as “volumizers”, plumping and lifting your cheeks, jawline, and temple.
Laser Skin Resurfacing - this works to give you a younger-looking facial skin by removing some skin layer by layer. Patients can get rid of scars, wrinkles, acne marks, and blotches.
Ultherapy - this uses ultrasound to heat targeted tissue under the surface of your skin. The heat will then trigger the natural production of collagen. This procedure can be repeated 6 to 12 months because collagen usually takes very long to develop.
LED - light-emitting diode therapy uses a variety of different colored lights to target various parts of your face. This is a pain-free procedure that treats acne, fine lines, wrinkles, pigmentations, acne scars, and rosacea.
