Face

Facelift | Browlift

Facelift by Neil Tanna, MD - Manhattan, NY

Dr. Neil Tanna is qualified for facial aesthetic surgery, including facelifts (rhytidectomy) and browlifts. He is Board Certified in both Plastic Surgery and Otolaryngology (Ear, Nose, Throat) – Head & Neck Surgery. With this combined specialization, Dr. Tanna can correct the changes associated with facial aging, while ensuring a natural appearance for each patient.

Are you ready for a facelift?

A facelift will correct facial sagging and reduce wrinkles. During a facelift procedure, Dr. Tanna will access the skin and muscles of the face through a small incision around the ears. Following this, he tightens the sagging facial tissues and removes any excess skin. Because the incisions are made near the ears, the scars are hidden.

A facelift improves visible signs of aging in the face and neck, including facial sagging, marionette lines, jowls, and a double chin. 


What is a Browlift?

A browlift, also known as a forehead lift, will smooth out wrinkles in the forehead, upper eyelids, and eyebrows. During the procedure, Dr. Tanna will make an incision either at the hairline near the ears or on the scalp. Similar to the facelift procedure, he will pull the skin and muscles tight, smoothing out the appearance of the upper face.

A browlift will correct the look of sagging eyebrows, deep horizontal creases across the forehead, excess skin hanging over the eyes and frown lines between the eyebrows. 


Why Choose Dr. Tanna?

Dr. Tanna does not simply lift the skin. He aims to address the underlying muscle and restore the facial volume. This approach addresses any or all of the following, including loose hanging skin, sagging cheeks or jowls, facial wrinkles and lines, the wrinkled brow, or the loose neck. Additionally, it serves to provide long-lasting results. Finally, all incisions and scars are hidden in natural creases of the face.

Eyelid Lift | Blepharoplasty

Eyelid surgery - blepharoplasty

“When your eyes are tired the world is tired also.”

– DAVID WHYTE

As we age, our skin loses its elasticity. The loss of elasticity will cause skin to droop or sag. Around the eyes, loose, hanging skin can disrupt the natural upper eyelid contour, and, for some, even interrupt vision. On the lower eyelid, drooping, excess skin creates puffiness and bags under the eyes.

Blepharoplasty, also known as an eyelid lift, will tighten up the skin around the eyes, reduce the bagginess from the lower lids, and restore the youthful appearance and contour of the eyelids.

Blepharoplasty can be performed on the upper or lower eyelid. The excess skin in the upper and lower eyelids can be removed. If necessary, fat can be removed or repositioned to achieve a youthful yet natural look. Blepharoplasty is typically performed under local anesthesia or with intravenous sedation. The procedure can be performed alone or in conjunction with other facial aesthetic procedures.


Why Choose Dr. Tanna?

Dr. Neil Tanna believes an eyelid lift can offer great patient satisfaction. When performing blepharoplasty, the desired result is a natural and youthful appearing eyelid. Dr. Tanna uses the latest blepharoplasty techniques to treat the aged or tired appearance, bags under the eyes, sagging skin of the upper eyelid, and fine lines around the eyes.

Ear Shaping | Otoplasty

Otoplasty

Otoplasty, commonly known as ear reshaping or ear pinning, is a procedure to correct prominent ears. Protruding ears can be the result of the lack of development of the antihelix (the inward curving ridge of the upper ear). Ears can also protrude due to a deep cup, or concha, of the ear.

Otoplasty procedures will vary depending on the problem that is being corrected. Dr. Tanna will make an incision behind the ear and remove skin and cartilage while also folding the ear cartilage back. The natural ear shape is restored, creating balance and proportion between the ears and face. Otoplasty can be performed in the outpatient on both children and adults.


Earlobe Repair

Patients with stretched earlobes or torn earlobes are good candidates for earlobe repair. Many times, patients have earlobes that are torn or stretched from earrings. Earlobe abnormalities can also be caused by genetic factors, trauma to the ear, or surgical procedures such as skin cancer treatment. Dr. Tanna performs the procedure in the office setting, under local anesthesia.


Why Choose Dr. Tanna?

Dr. Neil Tanna believes that correcting the prominent ear can offer great patient satisfaction. When performing otoplasty, the desired result is a natural appearing ear. The ear is set back to the face, while avoiding unsightly scars or sharp edges. Ultimately, the shape and size of the ear should harmoniously fit the face.

Rhinoplasty | Nose Surgery

Rhinoplasty - nose surgery - Neil Tanna, MD

Dr. Neil Tanna is qualified for nasal surgery, including rhinoplasty, septoplasty (deviated septum correction), or nasal airway surgery (for difficulty breathing). He is Board Certified in both Plastic Surgery and Otolaryngology (Ear, Nose, Throat) – Head & Neck Surgery. Given his unique background, Dr. Tanna can enhance the shape of the nose, while preserving or improving breathing. Additionally, he believes each nose is unique and strives to offer a natural appearance for each patient.

 

Dr. Tanna is a contributor to the field of rhinoplasty and functional nasal surgery (improving nasal airway). His work has been published in scientific journals and he has presented his findings across the country and world. He has been an invited instructor to teach a course on rhinoplasty at the national meeting of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS). Finally, Dr. Tanna is an invited journal reviewer for rhinoplasty.
