Facelift & Necklift Procedure for Glens Falls & Saratoga Springs
Wrinkles and sagging skin on the lower part of the face can be corrected with a facelift. Most people considering this type of surgery want to take a few years off their appearance, but they don’t want to look like they’ve had work done. Dr. Garcia has helped dozens of patients strike the right balance and look great at their age.
A facelift, or rhytidectomy, can be performed for both men and women. Before researching the procedure, many patients are worried about the surgery leaving them with a surprised or frightened look. A highly skilled, board certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Garcia knows how to subtly alter your appearance without dramatically distorting your facial features. His facelift and necklift patients can enjoy a younger, smoother facial appearance and more sculpted facial contour.
Loose neck skin and fat accumulation under the chin may be corrected with a neck lift, which can be done in conjunction with a rhytidectomy.
With the help of plastic surgery, patients who are tired of their sagging jaw line or wrinkles around their mouths and cheeks have an option to look and feel younger and more confident.

An Overview of the Facelift (Rhytidectomy) Procedure
Dr. Garcia begins most facelift procedures by making incisions around a patient’s ears and hairline. For necklift procedures, Dr. Garcia makes a small incision under your chin. Through these incisions, he can access facial muscles, fat and connective tissue. Muscles are tightened and fat and excess skin are removed. After the procedure, patients are bandaged and monitored overnight. The day after surgery you are unbandaged and placed into a facial garment, to be worn full time. Detailed instructions for care and recovery will be discussed with you. You’ll have several follow-up visits with Dr. Garcia and you should be able to get back to your normal activities within a few weeks.
At your consultation, Dr. Garcia can answer your questions about facelifts or any of the other medical spa and plastic surgery procedures he performs, including brow lift, eyelid surgery or injectable fillers.
