What Is a Multi-Vector Face-Lift and Is It Right For Me?

Maybe you’ve been trying noninvasive anti-aging techniques, such as rejuvenating lasers and dermal fillers that restore lost volume. But you’ve reached the point where these just aren’t working anymore.

Or perhaps you tried to manage your aging on your own with natural methods, such as staying out of the sun and using a high-quality skin care regimen. The result is similarly disappointing.

Unfortunately, no matter how well you care for your skin and your health, aging eventually takes its toll on your face and neck. Previous sun damage, gravity, and age-related loss of bone, muscle, and essential proteins and acids in your skin cause you to look older than you feel.

You’ve thought about a face-lift. Thought about it seriously. But when you read celebrity news or see your favorite former “America’s Sweetheart” at age 50-plus, those poorly done plastic surgeries give you pause.

Then you hear about something called a multi-vector face-lift and wonder if it would make the difference you’re seeking. Dr. Elliot H. Rose, a world-renowned plastic surgeon at the Aesthetic Surgery Center in New York City, is an expert at performing multi-vector face-lifts that resolve multiple signs of an aging face and neck naturally and in a single procedure.

Is a multi-vector face-lift for you? Dr. Rose suggests asking yourself:

Do I notice signs of aging on different areas of my face and neck?

Unlike a traditional face-lift — also called a rhytidectomy — a multi-vector face-lift treats more than just the mid and lower face. Based on an in-depth consultation —in which Dr. Rose expertly evaluates your skin quality, bone structure, and facial type — he devises a rejuvenation that can turn back time on all of your areas of concern. During a custom-designed multi-vector face-lift, Dr. Rose can lift and restore your:

By separately lifting each area of your face against gravity, he restores it to a more youthful, energetic, and natural-looking position.

Do I want a face-lift that makes me look like myself, only better?

Overstretching the skin can change your facial features, making you look like a total stranger (you’ve seen this effect in celebrities). Dr. Elliott respects your natural beauty when making rejuvenations. He addresses all of the the underlying layers of your skin and fascia to create a lifted look that retains your individuality.

Do I want to improve the quality and health of my skin?

As part of your multi-vector face-lift, Dr. Elliott may recommend a microdermabrasion treatment. Microdermabrasion removes the outermost, dulling layer of your skin and stimulates the production of the essential proteins collagen and elastin.

The loss of collagen and elastin is one of the main factors behind skin sagging and dullness. By stimulating a remodeling process with these important proteins, microdermabrasion restores plumpness, elasticity, and vitality to your skin. Your skin grows tighter and more glowing over the course of months.

Do I want a rejuvenation that can last for a decade or more?

Dr. Elliott’s face-lifts help you look up to 10 years younger while still looking like yourself. But unlike nonsurgical anti-aging therapies, the effect lasts for the long term. Though you still continue to age, your uplifted, refreshed appearance continues for 10-20 years or even longer.

To maintain the benefits of your face-lift, Dr. Elliott may recommend annual microdermabrasion treatments and a medical-grade skin care program. He also suggests coming in for light surgical touch-ups (such as upper or lower eyelid surgery) when the need arises.
