Facial surgery is an area of plastic surgery that aims to improve the features of the neck, chin, ears, cheeks, nose, and eyes.

Eyelid Surgery/ Blepharoplasty

In our office in Manhattan, blepharoplasty is an extremely popular procedure. Our eyes are often indicators of our mood and feelings. Lower lid bags and puffiness, excess skin, and even drooping upper eyelids can cause a misrepresentation of our true mood. For some patients, these features do not improve, even with plenty of sleep and living a healthy lifestyle. 

Blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery, removes excess fat and lax skin to reduce under-eye bags. This cosmetic surgery tightens upper and lower eyelid skin. Blepharoplasty gives men a new glow and a rejuvenated facial appearance. It can help men of all ages and skin types look and feel younger and refreshed.

A blepharoplasty offered by our NYC plastic surgeon may offer you the improvement you seek. We serve patients in New York City, the Upper East Side, all over Manhattan, Westchester, and neighboring areas. 

Who is a Good Candidate for a Blepharoplasty Procedure?

Good candidates for eyelid contouring are men who demonstrate:

●  Bags or puffy bulges under the eyes (fatty deposits)

●  Fullness of the inner part of the upper eyelids (fatty deposits)

●  Excess skin diminishing the natural fold of the upper eyelid

●  Excess skin and wrinkling of the lower eyelids

●  Impaired vision due to hanging skin on the upper eyelid 

All ages are eligible for eyelid surgery. Men, as young as those in their twenties and even those into their eighties are candidates. If you are in good health, your age shouldn’t stop you from undergoing this procedure. Dr. Rothaus is an expert in this advanced cosmetic procedure. His knowledge and skill will ease any anxiety that a candidate might have over this advanced cosmetic surgery. Recovery should expect some bruising and swelling for about seven-fourteen days.

Rhinoplasty for Men in NYC

The nose is the most prominent feature on the human face. Any defect or deformity can make a man self-conscious. Rhinoplasty is a cosmetic surgical procedure designed to change your nose angle, reshape the tip, narrow the nostrils, or change the size or width of the nasal bridge.

Rhinoplasty surgery is an excellent way to correct this. Our board certified plastic surgeon performs rhinoplasty surgery, creating natural, balanced results for those living in NYC, Upper East Side, Manhattan, Westchester, and the nearby areas of New York. Dr. Rothaus will work carefully with you to pick a technique that will best suit you and your aesthetic needs. Whether you are correcting your nose due to an accident, injury, or you simply desire a nose more proportionate to your face, we will provide you with important information and guidance.

Facelift Surgery in NYC

There are a few contributing factors to the aging face including loss of facial volume, discoloration, lines, wrinkles, and sagging from the effects of gravity. For men whose appearance doesn’t match how they feel or see themselves, a facelift (rhytidectomy) may help you look younger. It may restore their confidence and improve their self-esteem.

One of Dr. Rothaus’ favorite cosmetic surgical procedure is a facelift. His facelift procedure tightens underlying facial tissues, removes excess fat, and smooths loose skin on the face and neck by incorporating the latest rejuvenation and surgical techniques. This improves cheek folds, loose jowls, and sagging skin around the neck. 

Dr. Rothaus is one of only a few plastic surgeons to utilize the Harmonic scalpel during this surgery. With the Harmonic facelift, there is very little bruising and swelling compared to conventional facial surgeries. Combined with nonsurgical skin rejuvenation treatments such as Botox® and fillers or a skin resurfacing procedure, the results of this procedure can take a decade off one’s appearance. 

What is a Mini Facelift?

A mini facelift is designed to minimize wrinkles and sagging in the cheek and jawline areas. Less invasive than a traditional facelift and often referred to as a “weekend facelift,” the mini facelift is popular among individuals looking to enhance their facial appearance and undergo a shorter recovery time. A complete recovery from surgery occurs in about three weeks. Supplemental procedures, such as non-surgical skin rejuvenation, are often performed after the first week.

Neck Lift for Men

Men can gain better neck contours without the hanging skin and excess fat with neck lift in our Manhattan locations. Over time, natural changes in the body such as weight fluctuations and aging may change the elasticity of skin. A neck lift can take years off your appearance by getting rid of sagging skin or superfluous fat pockets on your chin and neck region. This combination of improvements aims to rejuvenate and restore a more youthful appearance.

A neck lift addresses this skin irregularity by removing the excess skin and fat, tightening the remaining skin for a more contoured appearance, and tightening the underlying muscle. 

Neck lift surgery can dramatically improve the profile of the neck, creating a more youthful and sharper profile. This procedure is often combined with the use of a laser SmartLipo™ to aid in achieving additional skin tightening and liposuction to help remove fat. In addition, Dr. Rothaus may recommend the procedure on the neck be combined with a mentoplasty (chin implant) to further help improve the contour of the neck. The combination can create amazing results. 

Swelling and bruising are usually minimal after neck lift surgery. A compressive neck dressing may be used for the first 24 hours to help control swelling and to help the neck skin adapt to the new neck contour. Most patients can resume modest activity almost immediately. A complete recovery from neck lift surgery occurs in about 5-10 days. This surgery creates a tighter neck that appears softer and younger.  

Ear Surgery

Otoplasty — also known as cosmetic ear surgery — is a procedure to change the shape, position or size of the ears. You might choose to have otoplasty if you’re bothered by how far your ears stick out from your head. You might also consider otoplasty if your ear or ears are misshapen due to an injury or birth defect. 

Otoplasty is typically done on both ears to optimize symmetry. This advanced cosmetic surgery can be done at any age after the ears have reached their full size. 

After otoplasty, the patient’s ears will be covered in bandages for protection and support. He will feel some discomfort and itching. To keep pressure off your ears, the patient should avoid sleeping on his side or place excessive force on the incisions. A few days after otoplasty, Dr. Rothaus will remove the bandages. A patient’s ears will likely be swollen and red. Dr. Rothaus might recommend wearing a loose headband that covers the ears at night for a few weeks. This will help keep from pulling your ears forward when rolling over in bed.

Real Patient Testimonials

Two and half weeks ago I had a face lift and Dr Rothaus did an amazing job! I had very little discomfort and very little bruising. I went to lunch with my sister in law one week after the surgery and she didn’t notice. When I told her she couldn’t believe how great I looked. Dr Rothaus is an artist and more importantly a wonderful man.
