A Quick Guide to Best Facelift Surgery
Is There a “One Size Fits All” Solution For Facial Plastic Surgery?
Dr. Rizk does not believe that there is a “one size fits all” solution when it comes to facial plastic surgery. This is why he customizes each facelift procedure to meet his patients’ specific aesthetic goals. He discusses concerns such as loose skin, saggy jowls, and baggy eyes with each patient and together they decide whether a full facelift or mini facelift or another procedure is the best option. Often, he combines facelift and neck lift procedures to offer dual benefits and a speedier recovery.
Dr. Rizk discusses the types of facelifts he performs, and the advanced techniques he uses to speed up recovery and achieve beautiful results.
Does Dr. Rizk Use the Deep Plane Facelift ?
Dr. Rizk is among a small number of doctors that uses the deep plane facelift surgery technique. To reverse the signs of aging, he repositions drooping facial tissue, developing enhanced definition over the jawline. This approach uses micro-incisions, nicely concealed by the hairline so scars are not visible. During deep plane facelift surgery, the deeper layer of facial skin becomes responsible for lifting the sagging facial tissue. This means that patients won’t develop an unnatural or tight appearance since the skin is never pulled.
In addition, Dr. Rizk pioneered the rapid recovery facelift, which is a facial plastic surgery procedure that allows patients to be back out in public within just 5 days. His technique lifts sagging skin and tissue to get more natural results than the “weekend lift” or “short-scar lift”. Dr. Rizk has been featured on Fox discussing the benefits of the Rapid Recovery Facelift.
