A NaturaLyft™ is our signature in-office Facelift performed without general anesthesia. 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 softens facial creases while restoring a more youthful face and jawline 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.

A NaturaLyft™ can address the following concerns in a single procedure:

  • 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 natural, long-lasting results, whether performed alone or combined with other procedures like a brow lift or eyelid lifts.


Our procedures are performed in our accredited facilities in both NYC & on Long Island offices without the use of general anesthesia. This affords a quicker and more comfortable recovery with less down time. Incisions are placed in natural creases around the ear and in the hairline, depending on the specific techniques to be used.

The underlying muscles and soft tissues of the face are lifted and repositioned (SMAS layer) using a variety of techniques, and extra skin is removed to achieve a more youthful, natural look. 

Skin is repositioned over the new facial contours and excess skin removed before incisions are sutured closed. The NaturaLyft TM typically take between one to two hours to complete, depending on the number of areas to be addressed.


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. Our 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.

Our doctors are experienced in all types of facelift procedures and strive to produce results that are both youthful and natural.
