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.
