Facelift Procedure– Rhytidectomy Richmond Excess Skin

Tag Archives: wrinkles


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.


Looking for a way to make the skin on your neck and face look firm, smooth, and youthful? Like Botox, Juvéderm, Thermage, and Fraxel, Ultherapy is a type of skin care treatment used for non-invasive facelifts and necklifts. Also known as Ulthera, this soundwave-based procedure erases wrinkles, leaving your skin looking firm, smooth, and youthful.

The Ultherapy procedure takes anywhere from an hour to an hour and a half. During the Ulthera treatment, soundwaves are concentrates towards areas with loose skin and wrinkles. The heat created by the soundwaves tightens the skin and stimulates collagen production in the tissues. After the procedure, no recovery time is necessary, and you’ll begin to see results very quickly. The collagen keeps building for three months after the treatment, making the results look better and better. Usually, only a single Ultherapy treatment is needed to ease away those wrinkles.

So if you want to bring youth and beauty back to your skin, try Ultherapy treatments. Visit the office of Doctors Burton Sundin and Reps Sundin, two cosmetic surgeons with years of experience helping patients achieve their beauty goals. Contact us today to set up a consultation

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!
