Return Youth and Vibrancy to Your Body's Greatest Asset
Your face is, in a very real sense, your calling card. It is the physical embodiment of your personality, your mood, your passion and emotion. When people think of you, it is your face that they immediately visualize in their minds' eyes. The face could well be your most valuable, not to mention delicate, personal asset.
Over the course of his career, Dr. Robert M. Freund has developed a particularly astute sense of how the eyes, eyebrows, cheeks, lips, nose, and other features interact in varying proportions to create a unique, memorable face. He carefully assesses these features to determine a treatment plan that enhances a patient's beauty without compromising his or her individuality. When performing facial plastic surgery at his New York practice, Dr. Freund employs a conservative approach, focusing less on alteration and more on rejuvenation. The ultimate goal of facial plastic surgery is not to make you look different, but rather younger, healthier, and overall better.
We invite you to read more about the facial plastic surgery options available at our New York practice, serving Long Island, Greenwich, Westchester, and other communities throughout the Tri-State Area, and then contact Dr. Freund to schedule your confidential consultation today.
Dr. Freund is a master of the vertical vector SMAS face lift, a technique that effectively erases years from the face while causing minimal trauma and discomfort. By manipulating the superficial layer of skin and the deeper layer of muscle and connective tissue (the SMAS) separately, Dr. Freund is able to exert tremendous control over the final outcome, ensuring the most durable and aesthetically pleasing results possible. Likewise, because he pulls the skin vertically rather than horizontally, he is able to avoid the windblown, artificially tight appearance that is associated with bad face lift surgery. When you entrust your face to Dr. Freund, you can expect to achieve natural-looking rejuvenation that emphasizes your true beauty. During a consultation, you can learn more about your candidacy and the cost of the face lift procedure.
For many people, the first signs of aging appear in the eye and forehead regions. Through brow and eye lift surgery, Dr. Freund can restore a more youthful appearance to these areas, eliminating furrows and fine lines from the forehead and removing excess skin and fatty tissues from the eyelids. These minimally invasive procedures can have a dramatic effect on the appearance of your face, making you look more alert and energetic, as well as younger. Dr. Freund's award-winning technique for lateral brow lifts is a limited technique designed to lift the sagging lateral brow. As with face lift surgery, Dr. Freund's goal in performing brow and eye lift procedures is to produce natural-looking, long-lasting results that return your face to an earlier state.
Nose reshaping surgery, clinically known as rhinoplasty, is performed to alter the appearance of the nose, whether in terms of size, shape, or both. These alterations can be as subtle or dramatic as you wish, depending on your goals and your surrounding facial features. In performing rhinoplasty, Dr. Freund's overarching purpose is to give patients straight, natural-looking noses. He is also highly skilled in performing secondary rhinoplasty, a procedure intended to correct the results of a past unsatisfactory rhinoplasty. Secondary rhinoplasty is one of the most complex procedures in all of plastic surgery; however, Dr. Freund has the skill, experience, and training to produce exceptional results in such cases.
At his plastic surgery practice in New York, Dr. Freund performs neck lift using the corset platysmaplasty technique pioneered by Boston surgeon Joel Feldman. This technique is the most effective and durable method of restoring the neck muscles that have become lax to their previous, more youthful state. Working through a small incision discreetly placed under the chin, Dr. Freund joins together the two platysma muscles that underlie the neck skin to create a single strong muscle that is less likely to sag over time.
While Dr. Freund generally performs neck lift in conjunction with face lift, he can also perform the procedure on its own. This is a particularly attractive option for patients who are just beginning to exhibit signs of aging in their necks, but who are perfectly content with the appearance of their faces. In such cases, the neck lift often has a dramatically rejuvenating effect on the entire appearance.
Facial implants can add definition and enhance the symmetry of your face. Patients with weak chins may choose chin implants to create better facial or nasal proportion. Others may wish to overcome receded checks, bags under the eyes, or general aging in the mid portion of the face - these goals can be effectively addressed with cheek implants. Patients desiring full, pouty lips without the need for ongoing maintenance treatments can rely on lip implants as a great long-term lip augmentation solution. All of these implant types are made of very durable and safe FDA-approved materials, and will be customized to blend in beautifully with your natural anatomy.
