Facelift Before and After Pictures Long Island & Manhattan, NY

A facelift is a surgical procedure designed to restore a youthful appearance to the face. Also referred to as a rhytidectomy, this procedure effectively removes excess skin and tightens underlying tissue, improving jowls and deep facial creases while restoring a more youthful face and neck profile. A facelift is often recommended for patients with significant signs of aging that will not see desired results with injectables, lasers or other minimally invasive treatments.


Downtime: 7-10 days


  • No need to go to the hospital for surgery
  • Facelifts under local anesthesia require less downtime and quicker recovery than facelifts performed under general anesthesia
  • Dr. Madnani's facelifts are known to leave minimal to no visible signs of scarring after full recovery.
  • Dr. Madnani’s patients are usually considered presentable and ‘restaurant ready’ just 7-10 days after the procedure.
  • The best facelifts can quickly restore a 'younger' you with natural results


  • Dr. Madnani performs all his facelifts and mini lifts in our state of the art, AAAASF Certified operating rooms in both Manhattan and Long Island offices.
  • You have the option of having your facelift under local anesthesia with or without IV sedation.
  • Surgical incisions for facelifts are usually made in the hairline starting at the temples, continuing down around the front of the ears and ending behind the ears.
  • A facelift is ideal if you have moderate to severe sagging and or deep facial creases.
  • Facelift results are permanent in that you'll always look seven to 10 years younger than if you hadn't had it done.

Who is it For?

A facelift can address the following concerns in a single procedure:

  • Sagging skin around the cheeks
  • Softens marionette lines and nasolabial folds (lines that extend from the nose to the mouth and from the mouth to the jaw)
  • Jowling and loose skin around the mouth, lower face and jawline
  • Skin creases and sagging skin around the neck
  • Sagging neck platysmal banding (11 lines in the neck) and pockets of fat that give the appearance of a double chin can be addressed with additional procedures such as neck liposuction and a neck lift.

Dr. Dilip Madnani offers customized facelift procedures to patients depending on their specific concerns and desired outcome. The procedure offers dramatic, long-lasting results, whether performed alone or combined with other procedures like a brow lift or eyelid lifts.

How does it Work?

Dr. Madnani performs his facelifts in New York City without the use of general anesthesia, in his procedure room. This affords a quicker and more comfortable recovery with less down time. Incisions are placed in natural creases in the hairline or around the ear lobe, depending on the specific techniques to be used.

Through the incisions, Dr. Madnani removes excess skin and treats underlying muscles and tissue (SMAS layer) using a variety of techniques, repositioning the underlying muscles and skin structure to achieve a younger, natural look. Skin is repositioned over the new facial contours and excess skin removed before incisions are sutured closed. Facelifts typically take between one to two hours to complete, depending on the number of areas to be addressed.

What are Results Like?

After the procedure, a dressing is placed which is changed within 24-48 hrs. Discomfort is common for the first day or two and can be managed with oral pain medication. Most patients will experience relief from discomfort within 48 hours. Dr. Madnani’s patients are usually considered presentable and ‘restaurant ready’ 7-10 days after the procedure.

Results of a facelift can usually be seen once the surgical area begins to heal. Skin will appear firmer, with fewer fine lines and wrinkles. You will also see a more youthful facial contour, as the neck and jawline are much better defined. These results are long-lasting; with most patients enjoying results for many years.

Dr. Madnani is experienced in all types of facelift procedures and strives to produce results in his patients that are both beautiful and natural. To learn more about this surgical procedure, contact Dr. Madnani’s New York office at (332) 216-0176.
