Blepharoplasty (Upper and Lower)

Blepharoplasty, more commonly known as eyelid surgery, is perfect for those looking to rejuvenate their appearance without the invasiveness of a facelift. It can be performed on the upper eyelids, the lower eyelids, or both. According to The American Society of Plastic Surgeons, blepharoplasty was the second most popular cosmetic procedure of 2020. 

Upper eyelid blepharoplasty can help to correct heavy drooping, tighten eye muscles and tissue, and reduce excess skin and fatty deposits. Lower eyelid blepharoplasty is more cosmetic in nature-aimed at reducing excess fat around the bottom of the eyes-which builds up as we age. In both cases, your surgeon makes a delicate incision in the natural crease of the eye. That means no scarring or visible signs of surgery. 

Recovery time for both upper and lower blepharoplasty is, on average, two weeks. Because individual results may differ by patient, some patients may have more or less bruising or swelling than others. 

Importantly, not everyone is a candidate for blepharoplasty. During your consultation, your surgeon will conduct a thorough examination of your eyes, face, and health history, answer any questions, and develop the plan that best suits your needs and circumstances. We’ll also remain available 24/7 for the duration of your recovery.

Neck Liposuction

The fourth most common procedure of 2020 and historically among the most popular, liposuction aims to eliminate unwanted fat deposits. One of the more common areas of concern is the neck. Neck liposuction can remove the unwanted “double-chin” and create a more aesthetic, youthful, and tight neckline.

At DeLuca Plastic Surgery, we use Tumescent Power-Assisted Liposuction (PAL) to reduce discomfort and improve overall results. Most patients can return to work within one week and resume full activity within two weeks of the procedure. With the right post-op care, including a healthy diet and exercise, results are permanent! 

Neck liposuction can be performed on its own or in conjunction with other facial cosmetic procedures such as rhinoplasty, chin augmentation, or facelift. As with any cosmetic procedure, not everyone is a candidate for neck liposuction. During your consultation, your surgeon will discuss your unique circumstances to develop a customized plan and answer any questions, and we’ll remain available 24/7 for the entire duration of your recovery.

Mini Face & Neck Lift

In 2020, facelifts were the third most popular cosmetic procedure. A mini facelift or necklift is perfect for patients with saggy skin or loose jowls, deep lines or wrinkles, or a tired, aged appearance. A number of factors, including age, exposure to the sun, genetics, and gravity can all contribute to showing the signs of age-sometimes prematurely-in the face and neck.

Typically, a mini facelift differs from a full facelift in that the former is less invasive and focuses on the jowls and upper neck, whereas the latter includes the midface and entire neck. A mini facelift or necklift works by tightening the face or neck by pulling the skin and tissues up and outward towards the ear. 

Most patients report minimal-to-no discomfort and recovery time is typically no more than a few weeks. We advise patients to avoid strenuous activity for 14 days post-procedure. After roughly three months, patients can expect to see target results. Not everyone is a candidate for a mini facelift or necklift; a consultation will determine your eligibility. As with all procedures, we will remain available 24/7 for the entire duration of your recovery.
