As the signs of age begin to change the face, resulting in sagging skin, jowls, wrinkles, and other lines and creases, many people want to turn back the clock and see their youthful face in the mirror again. A facelift in NYC with Dr. Halaas helps achieve a rejuvenated, sculpted appearance.

Are there any risks or complications from a facelift?
Facelifts carry the same risks and complications as other surgeries, including bleeding, pain, swelling, infection, scarring, nerve injury, and others.
What type of anesthesia is used?
Dr. Halaas’ techniques usually do not require full anesthesia. Instead, patients take a Valium and have local anesthesia with additional sedation as needed. Twilight and general anesthesia are also available from our board-certified anesthesiologists.
Will I look pulled back after a facelift?
Dr. Halaas focuses on a very natural look by carefully addressing the skin and tissues, resulting in an appearance that is refreshed, not pulled back or 'windblown.'

After years pass and the effects of a facelift begin to fade, another facelift can be performed to retain your rejuvenated results.
When can I return to normal activities after my facelift?
Patients can typically return to light activity and sedentary work in 7-10 days.
