Facelift Procedure– Rhytidectomy Richmond Excess Skin

Tag Archives: FACELIFT


Unhappy with creases and loose skin caused by aging? The facelift procedure is a surgery designed to remove loose skin, eliminate creases, and much more.

Plastic surgery incisions result in scars; this is as true for facelifts as it is for any other surgical procedure. Happily, because part of the incision for a traditional facelift procedure is made along the hairline, the resulting scar will be hidden by this border area. Plastic surgeons are trained in finding the best sites for the camouflaging of surgical scars.

When you take diligent care of your incision scars, they will typically fade and blend in with the rest of the skin in up to six months. To find out more about the details of the facelift procedure and what it can do for you, contact our office to make an appointment. Board-certified plastic surgeons Doctors Burton Sundin and Reps Sundin have a great deal of skill and years of experience with facelifts, so call or email now.


There are a lot of aspects to consider for your facelift. Facelifts were created to combat the signs of aging and enhance specific areas of the face so they appear more refreshed and youthful.

Board-certified plastic surgeons such as Dr. Burton Sundin or Dr. Reps Sundin identify landmarks of the face that are the most prominent when it comes to signs of aging. One of the biggest signs of aging comes in the formation of a jowl.

A jowl appears to be a sagging jaw line caused by the ptosis (sagging) of the cheeks. There are a few different techniques that can solve the problem of sagging cheeks. There are traditional facelifts and composite facelifts, for example, but it will come down to a decision between you and the practitioner based on what makes sense for your goals as well as facial structure.

Ultherapy in Richmond, Virginia

The Non-invasive Solution to Lift, Tighten and Tone Skin on the Face and Neck

It’s been featured on national television shows such as

Rachael Ray, The View and The Doctors. It’s been touted by big-name beauty editors from Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Marie Claire, Shape

and more…

It’s Ultherapy, a non-surgical face and neck treatment that uses ultrasound to actually lift and tone loose skin — on the brow, on the neck and under the chin — without any downtime. And, it’s offered here in Richmond, Virginia at The Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery.




Ultherapy Uses Ultrasound?

That’s right! Ultherapy is the only cosmetic procedure to use ultrasound imaging, which allows us to actually see the layers of tissue we target during the treatment, to ensure that the energy is delivered precisely to where it will be most effective.

Leveraging this tried-and-true technology, we can specifically target the deep foundation below the skin – the one typically addressed in cosmetic surgery – without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin. That means after a 90-minute


treatment, you’ll be able to return to your everyday life without interruptions…and, without hiding behind those “post-treatment” glasses or scarves.



Ultherapy Creates Collagen and Elastin Naturally

Ultherapy is so unique because it refreshes your collagen by jumpstarting a repair process. It relies on the body’s own regenerative process to stimulate the natural creation of new collagen and elastin – yes, new collagen and elastin. This results in an actual lift of skin overtime – and just better-fitting skin.

Many people notice an immediate effect following the treatment, but the ultimate lifting and toning takes place over 2-3 months, as tired collagen is replaced with new, stronger collagen. And, as this collagen-building process continues, further improvements can even appear up to 6 months following a procedure!


Ultherapy – an Uplift not a Facelift

Ultherapy is a non-surgical option for people with mild to moderate skin laxity – those who want some lifting for skin that has lost elasticity, but are not ready for surgery, either mentally, financially or logistically. It’s also a great option for those who want to “stay ahead of the game” as well as those looking to prolong the effects of cosmetic surgery.

Ultherapy may cause some discomfort while the energy is being delivered, but it is temporary and a positive signal that the collagen-building process has been initiated. Of course, we offer a number of options to help make your Ultherapy treatment as comfortable as possible. Our patients who’ve had Ultherapy typically leave comfortable and excited about the benefits to come!
