Dr. Scarpidis’ natural approach to the facelift
In the past, you could spot a facelift patient from a mile away. The tight, pulled back look and visible scar were unmistakable. Fortunately, today’s patients have access to something far better – one of Dr. Ulysses Scarpidis’ exceptionally natural facelifts. With a conservative approach grounded in artistry, attention to detail and technical expertise, Dr. Scarpidis possesses the ability to significantly reduce the signs of aging that concern you most – while ensuring a natural and refined final outcome.
One of the reasons Dr. Scarpidis’ facelift results are so exquisite is because he aims to rebuild the foundation of the facial structure during surgery. He carefully tightens the muscles and underlying tissue, while permanently repositioning them to a more youthful location. By addressing these foundational signs of aging – in addition to the surface wrinkles, deep folds and loose skin – Dr. Scarpidis can easily take ten years off your appearance, allowing you to progress through the aging process as gracefully as possible.
What can a facelift accomplish?
When it comes to rejuvenating your facial appearance, there are many things a facelift can accomplish. When performed by a leading New York City plastic surgeon, like Dr. Scarpidis, the procedure can:
- Redefine your facial contours.
- Sculpt a lifted and youthful facial appearance.
- Restore a more defined and contoured jawline.
- Elevate sagging cheeks.
- Eliminate deep folds and heavy jowls.
- Restore a youthful and refreshed overall look.
The facelift procedure
As there are countless facelift procedures and techniques available today, you and Dr. Scarpidis will spend a substantial amount of time weighing your options and planning for your surgery. Dr. Scarpidis truly believes in a personalized approach for every patient, and he will work closely with you to determine which custom blend of surgical techniques is in your best interest. For example, if you’re having your entire face rejuvenated to address advanced signs of aging, you’ll likely undergo a traditional full facelift. Conversely, if you’re a younger patient who is interested in addressing the earliest signs of aging with a preventative procedure, Dr. Scarpidis will likely determine that the mini or mid facelift is in your best interest. And, if you’re primarily interested in addressing signs of aging around your mouth, neck and jaw, a lower facelift will probably be performed.
Regardless of the facelift technique used, Dr. Scarpidis will begin your procedure by administering general anesthesia to ensure your comfort and safety. He will then make the smallest incision possible, before eliminating sagging skin, tightening the underlying muscles, removing unwanted fat and restoring your youthful contours. Once he achieves your smooth and contoured facial appearance, Dr. Scarpidis will close the incisions to ensure any scarring is very minimal once you’ve fully healed.

Are you a candidate for a facelift?
In order to be considered an ideal candidate for a facelift, there are a few characteristics you should possess. For example, your skin needs to have decent elasticity so it can be sculpted and elevated to remove the wrinkles, and you’ll need a strong underlying bone structure to provide support for your new contours. Also, you should be in good general health and at least 40 years of age – though younger patients may be considered candidates in certain circumstances.
