NECKTITE

Saturday, June 30th, 2018

Even small amounts of excessive fat in the neck can produce undesirable contour fullness as we age. When the fat is accompanied by changes in skin tone and elasticity, the reduction of fat alone may produce the unintended consequence of skin redundancy or pleating. The NeckTite procedure provides a minimally invasive option, under local anesthesia, for combining fat sculpting with skin tightening. It utilizes an applicator below the skin to administer a layer of controlled radiofrequency energy that results in gradual contraction and tightening of the skin over 6 months without surgery and without scars. The combination of fat contouring and skin tightening can produce striking changes in the appearance of the neck that can last for years.

ULTHERAPY® FOR MEN

Saturday, February 24th, 2018

Sagging of the face and neck with loss of jawline definition is a frequent complaint of patients as the aging process progresses. Men are particularly focused on the sagging neck as an indicator of an older appearance. However, they are less likely to accept surgery to treat the problem and are more inclined to pursue non-invasive options to improve laxity .

Ultherapy® is a non-invasive treatment that involves the application of focused ultrasound energy to the deep layers below the skin. A gradual tightening and lifting effect of the face and neck over 3-6 months results from the response of the body to the heat that is delivered. It has minimal if any downtime and is usually performed awake with some oral medication to reduce the discomfort that is associated with the procedure. Patients can resume normal activities immediately after the treatment and rarely require any pain medication or have any bruising. Maintenance treatments are usually performed at 18-24 months.

SHARED DECISION MAKING AND FACIAL AGING

Wednesday, January 31st, 2018

Facial aging procedures should be customized both to the changes that are visible and to the desires of the patient. In some cases, several options may be suitable to satisfy the goals of the patient. A detailed conversation between the plastic surgeon and the patient enabling shared decision making helps to maximize the likelihood of a satisfactory treatment outcome.

This case illustrates a treatment decision that involved shared decision making regarding the concerns of a 50 year old patient with facial aging. During the initial consultation, she stressed that the most worrisome aspect of her appearance was her sagging neck. Although aging changes of the face were of concern, her desire for a more limited procedure focusing on the neck was clear. We decided together that a neck lift would be performed and the outcome at 1 month is seen below. The patient was very pleased with the improvement and was gratified that she was able to achieve this result with neck surgery alone.

FACETITE FOR MEN

Thursday, November 30th, 2017

Men often complain about the appearance of their neck as they get older. The contour changes that occur in the neck are frequently the result of a combination of skin laxity and excess fat deposition. In some cases, prominent muscle bands at the midline of the neck contribute to the loss of definition. Traditionally, a surgical solution has been the approach deemed most effective to treat the aging face and neck. Although surgery remains the “gold standard”, FaceTite provides a minimally invasive alternative to surgery to tighten and contour the face and neck without scars. It utilizes radio frequency energy that is delivered below the skin with a thin needle-like applicator in combination with targeted liposuction to produce a more youthful contour. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia, noticeable swelling usually resolves within 3-5 days, and there is minimal discomfort. Results may be evident as early as 4 weeks but continue to evolve over 6-12 months and can last for years. During your consultation, Dr. Forley will examine you to determine if you are a good candidate for FaceTite.

SLEEPING POSITIONS MAY CAUSE WRINKLES OVER TIME

Sunday, November 27th, 2016

New York, NY (July 26, 2016) – A new study published in the Aesthetic Surgery Journal, the peer-reviewed publication of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), indicates that compression, tension, and shear forces applied to the face during sleep cause facial distortion when people sleep on their sides and stomach, leading to the development of sleep wrinkles over time.
