Info About the Ponytail Technique Facelift in New York
Our faces begin to lose their youthful volume as we grow older. The cheeks begin to droop, and our necks show their age as muscle banding occurs and visible excess skin begins to develop. Unfortunately, most facial plastic surgeons will treat the aging face and neck with a more traditional facelift procedure.
The reason this is not the first approach that Dr. Jacono would take is that a traditional facelifting approach oftentimes can lead to noticeable scarring that will be visible in front of the ears, as well as a possibility of distorting the ear’s anatomy. In some cases, it can even affect the location of the sideburns by making them shorter.
Another issue that can occur with a traditional facelift is the devascularization of the skin, which is caused when the skin and fat are separated from each other during the procedure.
If done incorrectly, the end results could leave you with an unnatural appearance. Dr. Andrew Jacono, a dual-board-certified facial plastic surgeon and pioneer in facial plastic surgery, believes that a refreshed, renewed, more youthful you can be realized without the need for a full facelift procedure. This is why he offers his patients a revolutionary technique called the Ponytail Technique Face Lift. It is minimally invasive and leaves no visible incision.
Considered a pioneer in the field of facial plastic surgery, Dr. Jacono has been performing customized cosmetic surgeries such as the ponytail technique facelift to help his patients look more youthful without looking overdone or plastic. This cutting-edge surgical technique was designed to lift the facial skin and underlying facial tissue to restore that youthful look patients want.
Ponytail Technique Face Lift Patient Details:
This 40-something-year-old patient was worried about her early signs of facial aging. Issues such as tired puffy eyes, sagging cheeks, and the beginning signs of jowling are all common for women in their forties when they begin to show signs of aging. This patient wanted to correct them with natural results and no visible scarring.
To address her concerns, Dr. Jacono performed a ponytail facelift. In the closeup photo, you cannot see any visible scarring when she wears her hair up in a ponytail. It’s a terrific example of how small techniques, when combined together, bring out a patient’s natural beauty.
Because Dr. Jacono treats every patient with the special care that is needed for them individually, it is difficult to answer “How much does a ponytail lift cost?” The ponytail facelift procedure is a specialty that requires much skill, training, and years of expertise to perform successfully, so the ponytail facelift cost in New York can vary depending on many factors.
A ponytail facelift price is something that you will want to discuss with Dr. Jacono as he goes over the specific ponytail facelift procedure to make sure that you are getting exactly what you want. The selection of ponytail facelift before and after photos below will show you that he absolutely knows what he’s doing. When you ask how much is a ponytail facelift, the question you should be asking is how much is the value of the self-esteem you’ll gain from looking your very best.
Many patients want to know what the facelift incisions look like following surgery. Here is a photo of the incision line for a beautiful 55-year-old patient of Dr. Jacono, just a week after surgery. You can see the incision line, but it has already begun to gradually blend in and will eventually not be visible. The incision wraps inside of the ear cartilage called the tragus and behind the ear so that there is no visible scarring when the incision is fully healed.
Both a ponytail technique and a traditional facelift begin with an incision. The traditional facelift, however, will involve more incisions, a much longer surgical time, and a longer recovery time compared to the ponytail technique facelift, which involves only a single incision behind each ear and can be completed in under an hour. It is more than just a facelift, it’s facial rejuvenation.
The traditional facelift procedure will also carry a much longer recovery time than the minimally invasive Ponytail Technique Face Lift. While both procedures will leave you looking younger, a traditional facelift will involve more areas of the face, including the cheeks, jowls, eyes, and in most cases, the neck.
Another main difference between the two is that the ponytail technique is better suited for men and women who are in their late twenties to late thirties and the traditional full facelift is better suited for patients who are a bit older and have loose drooping facial skin.
In the end, both procedures will leave patients looking more refreshed and years younger. During your consultation with Dr. Jacono, he will discuss your aesthetic goals and help customize a facelift procedure that is best suited to deliver the results you’re looking for.
Dr. Jacono performs the ponytail facelift under local anesthesia and will begin with a single small incision hidden behind the ear. Because this incision is hidden, visible scarring is avoided.
Dr. Jacono then sculpts the skin and facial tissue to restore a refreshed and youthful appearance. The excess skin is trimmed, and the incision is closed. This procedure is minimally invasive in nature and takes about an hour in the office with very little downtime.
A ponytail technique facelift has many benefits that patients should consider. These benefits include:
