A Leader In Facelifts

Any discussion of facial rejuvenation must, by necessity, have a focus on the facelift which remains the pinnacle of restoration for facial aging. The procedure must be technically outstanding and state-of-the-art, artistically executed. The surgeon must individualize the procedure to the facial features of the individual patient and time it appropriately for the physical degree of aging and the individual’s degree of concern over these changes.

As one of New York City’s established leaders in facelifts, Dr. Bass’s singular approach aims to provide the most complete and long-lasting facial rejuvenation possible while always prioritizing a completely natural look. With a patient roster built almost exclusively by quietly whispered referral, Dr. Lawrence Bass is the name trusted among those seeking discretion, delicate transformation, and credentials that speak for themselves.

Before The Facelift: The Role Of A Multi-Modality Approach

Facial rejuvenation is a process, not an event.  A multi-modality approach to prevention and maintenance during early stages of aging create the optimal, youthful appearance and help delay the need for bigger interventions.  Starting early avoids the need to transition to facelift and other surgical and recovery-based interventions years and sometimes a decade or more before necessary.

Facelift Planning & Timing

The facelift remains the ultimate intervention in the aging appearance of the face.  To look your best, a facelift is still the only meaningful way to address significant laxity in the face and neck.  Timing differs from individual to individual based on lifestyle, genetics and other treatments and procedures previously utilized.  The point at which someone feels ready to undergo the procedure is yet another consideration.  Dr. Bass offers a full spectrum of surgical, non-surgical and microinvasive options and will recommend a facelift when appropriate and not a moment before.  The broad range of options available ensures that an appropriate and workable option is there for you.

When you and Dr. Bass agree that the time is right, his career-long focus on the facelift will work to your advantage.  Skin laxity is tailored out of the face, restoring the sharpness and beauty of the jawline.  Your facelift will minimize excess fullness in the jowl and hanging skin and banding in the neck.  Like reminiscing over memories in a photo album, your own youthful face is again revealed.  Importantly, the facelift is also a shaping operation that restores deeper tissues to the position they occupied in youth, helping to restore a youthful facial shape.

After The Facelift: Restoration And Maintenance Continue

Offering full correction to many aging concerns, after your facelift, many treatments will not be required for years to come.  To maintain and enhance your transformation, an ongoing beauty plan that complements your facelift is ideal.  The focus is on issues unrelated to the laxity and shape features that are addressed by the facelift.  Neuromodulator treatments, conservative and discerning use of fillers, and in particular, treatments for skin quality and skin surface features like wrinkles and age spots are still part of the process of maintaining a youthful appearance.

The Expert Opinion: Crafting Your Ultimate Beauty Plan

Decades of experience have taught Dr. Bass that in order for substantial facial restoration to endure, sustained maintenance using a variety of surgical, non-surgical and microinvasive options is a must. Pursuing facial cosmetic surgery is daunting for many. The most discerning patients demand an expert with top-tier training, surgical prowess, and compassion.
