Face Lift: Are You a Good Candidate?

Age is not only the consideration for having a face lift. Although gravity and the aging process contribute to facial aging, other factors such as heredity, environmental forces (sun, pollution & wind) and lifestyle choices play a part as well. The condition of the facial structures: skin, bone and soft tissues are considered, not just chronological age.

So no matter what your age, if you are tired of the loose, sagging skin on your face, you should consider a face lift. That droopy look can give you a chronically tired or angered appearance to your face. Since many patients have the same sagging skin extending to their neck, surgeons will often recommend a neck lift to be done at the same time as a face lift.

Less invasive types of procedures such as injectables do not have the same effect as a surgical face lift. According to Dr Paul M Parker, Medical Director of the Parker Center for Plastic Surgery in Paramus, NJ, “injectables can “plump up” loose skin and soften wrinkle lines to a certain extent in patients with relatively early facial aging. This may delay the need for a face lift, in some cases, but it will not achieve what can be accomplished with a face lift”.

During facelift surgery, Dr Parker uses well concealed incisions in front of and behind the ear to access the loose skin and sagging fat in the cheeks and jowl areas. Through these limited incisions, he then re positions the skin and fat into a more uplifted, youthful position with a combination of absorbable sutures.

Following surgery, Dr Parker’s patients are monitored overnight in his on site, fully certified ambulatory surgical facility by a Registered Nurse to initiate a smooth recovery. Patients usually enjoy a quick and painless postop course, employing the Parker Center’s Rapid Recovery program.

Face lift New Jersey patients are thrilled with the results of their surgery. A natural looking, youthful appearance with a comfortable recovery are hallmarks of Dr. Parker and the Parker Center. Dr. Parker’s Rapid Recovery Program assists face lift New Jersey patients by minimizing downtime and allows them to return to normal activity as quickly as possible.

Dr. Paul M. Parker, M.D. of Parker Center for Plastic Surgery helps face lift New Jersey patients look as youthful on the outside as they feel on the inside. To see before and after photos of actual face lift patients and read their stories visit us at or call us at 201-967-1212.

Male Breast Reduction Surgery

During puberty a number of men develop a condition which causes the breast tissue to overdevelop in men. This condition is called Gynecomastia and is more common than you may think. Some men out grow the condition as they get older, but some men never do. Men with Gynecomastia often suffer from low self-confidence and self-esteem, particularly in social and intimate situations. While Gynecomastia doesn’t pose any health risks, there is certainly an emotional cost and the only treatment for it is Male Breast Reduction surgery.

Male Breast Reduction surgery has been incredibly successful in helping countless men achieve the flatter, more masculine chests they desire. View the Before and After Photo Gallery to get an idea of the kind of results that are possible. Then find a qualified Plastic Surgeon in your area to find out more, or to schedule your consultation.

Eyelid Surgery – Blepharoplasty

When the effects of aging and genetics set in, some find that the skin around their eyes makes them look older than they want to.  The appearance of bags or puffiness under the eyes, excess sagging skin, droopiness of the lower eyelids and fine wrinkles on the lower lids are all things than can be corrected with a procedure called blepharoplasty.  After undergoing blepharoplasty, patients appear more youthful.

The outpatient procedure on both upper and lower lids takes about two hours. Small incisions are made at various points in or around the eye depending on weather or not the upper or lower lid is being corrected.  Through these incisions, fat can be redistributed or removed and the skin can be tightened.  The incision lines for both upper and lower eye lid procedures blend nicely with natural structure of the eye are are hardly noticeable.

Other procedures such as mid face lift, face lift, and neck lift in conjunction with blepharoplasty to restore your youthful look. The knowledge you receive during a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon will help you decide if blepharoplasty alone will offer the results you are looking for.

It’s All About Getting the Results

Here at My Plastic Surgeon USA, we believe that results will speak for themselves. As you may have heard, “A picture is worth a thousand words,” and we often find that cliche to be the truth. Most patients first judgments of a plastic surgeon are based not only on their education and background, but on the results they’ve achieved for their previous patients.

Finding an example of a prior patient who had a similar issue as the one you are struggling with and being able to see their results, either good or bad, can be very powerful. It is recommended that if you find a result you are especially happy with and desire a similar outcome, that you print off the picture to bring it in to your consultation. Visual aides are always a good idea to ensure proper clarity in communicating what you want with your doctor.

Head on over to our Before and After Gallery to see results today! It’s a great way to help you understand one kind of results may be realistic, as well as to get a feel for the consistency and caliber of work of a particular plastic surgeon.

Nose Surgery – Rhinoplasty

Many people are unhappy with their noses for either aesthetic or health reasons. Deviated Septums are one of the most common reasons people choose to have Rhinoplasty. Having one can make it very difficult to breath properly. The other popular reason people choose Rhinoplasty is for it’s aesthetic benefits. Some people feel self-conscious that their noses are too large or disproportionate to the rest of their face, some have bumps and disfigurements caused by injury, and still others feel their noses are too small or undefined.

The procedure itself, whatever the reason, generally takes about an hour to complete and the results are instantaneous. Of course there will be some initial swelling and bruising, but it should go down considerably over the coming days and weeks. Your bandages will then be removed anywhere from one to two weeks after the procedure and most patients return to work within a matter of days. Of course, every patient’s recovery is different, so it is important that you listen to your body and consult with your doctor if you have any questions.

Plastic Surgery: The Body Lift

Many men and women of people seek out Body Lift surgery for a number of reasons. People who’ve lost a significant amount of weight and want to fully enjoy their hard work, but can’t completely enjoy their new bodies because now they are left with excess hanging skin. Some women who’ve given birth are left with stretched out abdominal muscles and sagging skin. Men and women who with age have watched the effects of gravity cause their skin to be pulled downwards and everything else with it. Whatever the case, whoever the person, the desire is the same: to get smooth, tighter skin.

A Body Lift surgery is not necessarily one surgery, but rather a term to describe any number of Body Lifting procedures such as Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck), Brachioplasty (Arm Lift), Thighplasty (Thigh Lift), Buttock Lift, Breast Lift, or Face and Neck Lift. Your Body Lift procedure is custom designed to meet whatever individual needs you may have and can include any or all of the above. Other procedures may also be done in conjunction with your Body Lift procedure such as Liposuction or Breast Augmentation. Talking to a skilled, Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon is the first step to discovering your options and to find out if you are a good candidate for the procedure.

Blepharoplasty for Improved Eyelid Appearance

One of the areas of the face that changes the most as we age is the fragile skin around our eyes. In more extreme cases, excess skin on the upper eyelid or brow area can even cause the eyes to no longer be in a fully open position. Of course, more common is the sagging of the upper and lower eyelids and creases. In any case, this can cause the appearance of being sleepy, or more tired and older than we are, and as we all know, how we look oftentimes directly effects how we feel.

You could be a good candidate for Blepharoplasty, also known as Eyelid Surgery, if you are in good health, have heavy or drooping eyelids, puffy bags under your eyes, and have a realistic goal. These conditions should be discussed between you and your board certified Plastic Surgeon of choice. Once you have found your Surgeon and scheduled your procedure, you should expect it to take anywhere from 1 to 3 hours with a complete recovery time of up to 10 days.
