What It Treats

Step by Step
During the consultation, a comprehensive medical history and physical examination will be conducted, with a thorough discussion of your goals. Photo documentation and 3D Visia Complexion analysis will be utilized to identify problem areas and aging patterns. A comprehensive treatment plan will be developed, tailored to your goals, timing, budget, and acceptable downtime. This includes a pre-operative skin care preparation plan and post-operative maintenance recommendations to optimize results and ensure longevity. Additionally, a pre-operative appointment will be scheduled to order medications and supplements, review informed consent, and provide detailed post-treatment instructions and care.
Before The Procedure
Prior to the surgical procedure, general anesthesia is administered by a highly skilled and board-certified anesthesiologist for optimum comfort and safety.
During The Procedure
During the procedure, an incision is skillfully made, that starts in the hairline at the temples, goes around the ear, and finishes in the lower scalp. Fat may be sculpted or redistributed from the face, jowls, and neck, while the underlying tissue is repositioned. This often includes lifting the deeper layers of the face and muscles.
After The Procedure
After surgery, you may experience bruising and swelling. A professional maintenance program will be recommended to minimize downtime and maximize results. This program may include skin care, manual lymphatic massage and ultrasound, medical makeup, LED photo biosimulation, and other clinically proven options that improve patient outcomes.

What Our Patients Are Saying
Dr. Barone did an excellent job. I am only 3.5 weeks post-op and I am still healing, but I don’t look like I had a facelift, or my eyes done; I just look refreshed! The staff is very professional and knowledgeable, and I have never felt rushed through my appointment. It has been an extremely positive experience and I am already contemplating my next procedure!
Dr. Barone did my neck, chin, lower face lift/ facial chemical peel. He did a fantastic job. My face/neck looks so natural! The office staff are so nice and helpful. Everyone took their time with me answering any questions. I would highly recommend Dr. Barone and his staff for any procedures. The best thing about my surgery is that it looks very natural.
I feel like there is nothing that was overlooked in patient care with this practice. The Patient Coordinator explain everything that was going to happen thoroughly before the surgery was scheduled. The Nurse walked me through the procedure step by step and explained what I should expect over my recovery period. The surgery went smooth and the outcome is astonishing. Dr. Barone is truly an artist. Also, I really liked having the Home Healthcare nurse with me during my first 24 hours of recovery after the surgery. I was very well taken care of. The pre-surgery vitamins and post-surgery meds kept me comfortable and help speed up my recovery. The follow-up visits were reassuring and allowed me to see visually the progress I was making. I feel like I receive very special treatment by all of the staff members. I definitely will return if I decide to do any more surgery in the future.
