Facial Rejuvenation Consultation

“He carefully examined every detail of my face. He explained why a deep plane facelift would be the most effective way to give me a more defined jawline and reduce my jowls. Additionally, he recommended a platysmaplasty1 procedure to tighten the muscles in my neck. When I brought up my nose, he pointed out subtle changes that I hadn’t noticed before, such as certain parts that had sunken in slightly. After seeing this for myself, I knew that I needed to address this issue in order to achieve the youthful, lifted look I desired. Furthermore, with his expertise and advice on making it slightly narrower too – as it would better fit with the overall shape of my face – I left feeling confident that I’d made the right decision in choosing him to perform my surgery.” – Jennifer Fessler on her consultation with Dr. Rizk.

Dr. Rizk’s Facial Rejuvenation Surgical Recommendation

When it comes to facial rejuvenation2, combining a deep plane facelift, rhinoplasty and neck lift can be extremely beneficial. In the case of Jennifer Fessler, Dr. Rizk recommended the following:

  • A deep plane facelift to elevate the mid and lower face to provide a more youthful appearance. It also tightens facial muscles and reduces wrinkles and lines for a smoother complexion.
  • A rhinoplasty to lift and refine the droopy nose tip, creating facial harmony by improving facial balance and symmetry.
  • A neck lift to add more definition to the jawline to create a more natural-looking and youthful appearance.

Plastic Surgery Recovery and Results

When complementing procedures such as a facelift, rhinoplasty, and a neck lift performed by a skilled plastic surgeon like Dr. Rizk, patients can be assured of a smooth healing process and natural-looking results that will last for many years to come. Also, the use of no drains speeds up the healing and reduces post-op pain and swelling. The patient spent her first two days post-surgery at a Hotel with a nurse and Dr. Rizk did his follow-up visit the day after surgery.

Jennifer Fessler’s plastic surgery recovery was quick:

  • Day 1 – slight bruising
  • Day 3 – results already visible and minimal discomfort, able to move around the home
  • Day 7 – applied makeup and ran a few errands
  • Day 10 – attended a Super Bowl Party with the Real Housewives of New Jersey cast
