The Facelift in Rochester, NY

The facelift is one of the most popular procedures in the country and has become a household name over the years. We are happy to offer facelift procedures to residents of Rochester, NY and the neighboring communities.

What is a Facelift?

This procedure is known for tightening up the skin around the face, but what people don’t know is it also tightens the muscles under the skin and around the neck to produce flawless and natural results. The facelift helps aging in the middle of the face by tightening the muscles and removing excess skin that sags around the nose and cheek area. The lower face is addressed by redefining the jawline and ridding the face of jowls. Finally, heavy banding around the neck and vertical lines around the neck are addressed with the same procedure.

What Can a Facelift be Combined With?

The facelift, blepharoplasty, Botox® injections, laser skin resurfacing and fat transfer all go hand-in-hand working together to give you a more naturally youthful appearance.

If you are interested in learning more about which procedures may be right for you, schedule your one-on-one consultation with Dr. Kim today.

How is a Facelift Performed?

During your facelift procedure, Dr. Kim will make incisions behind that will be masked behind your hairline and behind your ears. Through these incisions, he will tighten the facial muscles under the skin, pull the skin taut and remove any excess skin that causes sagging around the face. Multiple procedures may be done at once, so depending on your personalized treatment plan, you may undergo another procedure in addition to your facelift the same day.

What is Recovery from a Facelift Like?

During the first week of your recovery, you should expect to rest as much as possible. You’ll see some swelling and bruising, and this is normal. You may also experience some numbness that will resolve over time. Your sutures will be removed seven days after your procedure. By week two, you’ll be feeling almost back to normal. During your one month visit, you’ll take some photos to see the progress of your healing and the results of your procedure. This is the most exciting part!

I was working in Central New York and had an upcoming event and needed to get 2 areas of Dystport done. They were able to accommodate my schedule( as it was short notice) Dr. Kim’s entire staff was so friendly and welcoming!! During the procedure , even Nurse Dan held my hand and kept me smiling the whole time!! I was incredibly impressed with Dr Kim as he made sure he took the time to explain the process as well as not “ being rushed” something I have experienced with previous Doctors. I live in Florida but will be seeing Dr Kim from now on, and will be recommending their office to my fellow New Yorkers! It’s been almost 2 weeks since my appointment and the results are amazing!!! So happy! Thank you so much Dr Kim, Mary and the rest of the staff !

Dr. Kim is a world-class facial plastic surgeon. I’ve been to the top surgeons in the country from Beverly Hills to Miami and I found Dr. Kim to be superior. His face and neck lift were flawless and so natural that no one could tell I had anything done, but everyone said I looked ten years younger. As Syracuse is a discreet location, I would highly recommend anyone who wants a top notch face and neck lift to fly in. His bedside manner is as fantastic as his work. I can’t recommend Dr. Kim enough. I think he is the best Facial plastic surgeon in the country.

I am very happy with Dr. Kim and all of his staff. Not only did I have a surgical procedure done but I also go there every week for allergy shots and they couldn't be nicer. And Dr. Kim is awesome - - great bedside manner! I highly recommend them!!!

57 years old and wanted to start my new path in life retired...not looking tired! I did extensive research and sought out 5 surgeon recommendations. I was extremely impressed with Dr. Sang Kim for several reasons: 1 - He specialized in and only performs /neck surgeries, 2 - Dr. Kim is younger and probably more newly established, but there was no doubt that he is a perfectionist and a professional in his field, 3 - He is patient and really listens. I felt confident and trusted that he was giving me his best recommendation for my concerns, 4 - He didn't try to push unnecessary or extra procedures, 5 - I was impressed by how obvious it was that Dr. Kim's administrative and medical staff liked him and respected his work. But most of all, I am extremely satisfied with the results of my face lift!

I can't say enough good things about Dr. Kim. He is the most patient, professional, and personable physician I have ever had the pleasure of seeing. Instead of being rushed through the practice, every member of his staff made me feel welcome and important from the moment I walked through the door. He wouldn't perform a single procedure on me until he fully answered every minute question I had (all of which he eloquently and candidly answered); you can tell that his formal training was exceptional. His bedside manner and skilled technique easily make him one of the best kept secrets in Syracuse. I have referred numerous friends to him who have also, in turn, referred their friends. Make the consult and see for yourself... you won't be disappointed!

Dr. Kim and his staff were incredible. I had a face lift done this past summer and I was treated with dignity and respect by everyone. Dr. Kim is an exceptional surgeon and one of the nicest and kindest doctors I have ever met. I had a wonderful experience and I would highly recommend Dr. Kim and his entire staff. I recently went back to Dr. Kim for injections. Again my experience was wonderful. He explains everything he is going to do and what to expect. I didn't bruise and I love the fact that he doesn't overdo. He and his staff are just incredible. If I could give more than 5 stars I would.
