Information about the vertical facelift in New York City with Dr. Andrew Jacono
Vertical Facelift Dr. Jacono discussed the vertical facelift procedure and presented his research on new techniques in vertical vector facelifting during the International Master Course on Aging Skin (IMCAS) in Paris, France – one of the largest international facial plastic symposiums in the world.
There are many different facelift techniques available, and some are more sophisticated than others. Patients are not always looking for a traditional facelift. The vertical facelift is the most effective technique to rejuvenate aging changes that are most noticeable around the mouth or perioral region, including drooping cheeks, nasolabial folds, smile lines (between the corner of the nose and corner of the mouth), marionette lines, and jowls. Marionette lines are the lines that start at the corner of the lips and head down toward the chin, whereas the jowl is the accumulation of tissue that drops below the jawline.
The best facelift technique to correct these gravitational changes is a vertical facelift that facial plastic surgeon Dr. Jacono has pioneered to work against the downward forces of gravity. Patients travel from all over the United States and worldwide because of his groundbreaking techniques. (Long Island Plastic Surgery)
Attaining the best possible results with a vertical facelift is all about the angle, according to a study performed by New York Plastic Surgeon Dr. Jacono. The vertical “Angle of Maximal Rejuvenation” enables surgeons to successfully achieve the greatest reduction of laxity and jowling without flattening the fullness in the cheeks that contribute to a youthful appearance.
Traditional face lifting tightens the face horizontally or toward the ears, making the face appear stretched and the cheeks flattened. This can also cause the corner of the mouth and eyes to look pulled. Dr. Jacono’s groundbreaking study helps surgeons attain perfect facelift quality every time.
What Is a Vertical Facelift?
Deep Plane Facelift Before and After
Dr. Jacono performed his signature M.A.D.E. Minimal Access Extended Deep Plane Facelift on this patient. These are the before and after pictures she sent to him from her home using her phone. While she looks dramatically younger, you can still see some of the acne scarring on her face in the after photo.
Dr. Jacono has pioneered this technique and has been published in the Aesthetic Surgery Journal and Clinics in Plastic Surgery on his developments in this facelift. Hehas also lectured all over the world about this procedure from London, Paris, and Singapore to Harvard, Yale, and Stanford Universities.
A facelift is not simply about tightening facial tissue; the proper vertical vector, or direction of the lift, is imperative. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Jacono found the ideal vertical facelift “Angle for Maximal Rejuvenation” to be 60 degrees for patients with a mean age of 60 years old. By lifting the facial more vertically, the cheeks are lifted, creating the heart-shaped face of youth and higher cheekbones without the need for cheek implants or additional fat transfers. This procedure also elevates the corners of the mouth that sag with age, and gets rid of the jowls and turkey neck.
As the age of the patient increases, the angle decreases. Conversely, patients younger than 60 years old will require a greater vertical facelift angle. The Golden Proportion, the ratio used first by artists and then by plastic surgeons when attempting to create symmetrical beauty, is still observed with the “Angle of Maximal Rejuvenation.”
Dr. Jacono has published numerous articles and manuscripts on facial plastic and reconstructive surgery and is recognized by his peers as a leading expert in the field. His study, “Finding the Angle of Maximal Rejuvenation” was published in Aesthetic Surgery Journal’s September 2012 issue.
More information about the concept of Golden Proportion, which has been used for over two thousand years, and the Golden Calipers, which measure the proportion, can be found in Dr. Jacono’s book, The Face of the Future – Look Natural, Not Plastic: A Less-invasive Approach to Enhance Your Beauty and Reverse Facial Aging .
How Much Does a Vertical Restore Facelift Cost?
The vertical facelift cost, as done by Dr. Jacono, is very competitively priced with doctors of his caliber. When asking, “How much does a vertical facelift cost?” you have to take into account the quality of the results that you’ll receive from the vertical facelift technique, as well as the hundreds of thrilled patients who have received similar treatments from Dr. Jacono.
Broadly speaking, a vertical restore facelift price nationwide can be anywhere from $3,000 to $15,000. But each and every vertical facelift is going to be a different scenario, so the vertical restoration cost of each is going to vary widely from patient to patient. It’s difficult to say what the average cost of a facelift is going to be.
What you can always bank on is that Dr. Jacono will use his utmost skill and his decades of expertise to perform the very best vertical facelift possible, always with an eye toward getting results that will elate the patient, not just satisfy them.

Vertical Facelift Before and After Photos
Vertical Facelift Before and After – Patient 1:
This beautiful 63-year-old patient is shown just 3 months after Dr. Andrew Jacono performed her plastic surgery. Patients often ask us how they will look after a vertical facelift with a neck lift and temporal lift.
The vertical lift raises the jowls and dropped cheeks, lifting them up and restoring the natural, full cheeks of youth. As you can see, this patient’s hair is pulled back and the incisions are not visible.
The neck lift reduces the fat under the chin and tightens the neck muscles called the platysma. The temporal lift opens the eyes to look vibrant and alive.
Vertical Facelift Before and After – Patient 2:
This wonderful patient was worried about her dropping jawline, jowls, fallen cheeks, and platysma bands. Dr. Jacono re-supported her face and neck with a vertical facelift and necklift with platysmaplasty. The vertical facelift lifts the dropped cheeks and jowls recreating the heart shape of youth. We love how her nasolabial folds and marionette lines are smoothed and natural-looking.
Vertical Facelift Before and After – Patient 3:
This wonderful 58-year-old patient was unhappy with her droopy cheeks, visible jowls, and crepe neck and jawline. Dr. Jacono performed a vertical facelift to address her concerns. The vertical lift lifts the cheeks to their natural position.
He also performed a platysmaplasty for her neck and jawline, and a lateral lift to open up her eyes. She loves her overall rejuvenation and feels she looks 15 years younger.
Vertical Facelift Before and After – Patient 4:
This amazing 57-year-old patient is shown at just 4 weeks following her plastic surgery with Dr. Andrew Jacono. She hated her drooping neck with visible bands, jowls, and loss of definition of her jawline. She also noticed that her upper lip had dropped and felt that her eyes looked more tired than they should.
To correct this, Dr. Jacono performed a vertical facelift approach which lifts the jowls and deep cheek fat and musculature vertically recreating a heart-shaped face. She can already pull her hair behind her ears and you cannot see any incisions or scars! They are placed inside and just behind the ear.
For her neck, a neck lift and platysmaplasty were performed and left her with a crisp jawline and smooth neck. To open her eyes, an upper and lower blepharoplasty were performed to remove excess eyelid skin. She also had upper eyelid ptosis where the eyes didn’t open enough, so a ptosis correction procedure also was performed.

This patient was unhappy with the loose, excess skin and wrinkles on her face and neck. She wanted to smooth out her facial wrinkles including under her eyes and around her neck region.

Dr. Jacono performed a deep plane facelift to reduce the appearance of her sagging jowls and to lift her cheeks naturally. He also performed a neck lift to address the loose hanging neck skin, and he performed a lower eyelid lift procedure. The after photos show her looking natural and 20 years younger.
