NEW YORK, Oct. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Adam D. Schaffner, M.D., F.A.C.S., Director of Plastic Surgery at JUVA Skin and Laser Center in Manhattan, is challenging the "one size fits all" approach to the traditional facelift with a new, customizable, minimally-invasive and affordable procedure named JuvaLift™.

We all know how the subtle changes on our face reveal our age.  A smile turning to wrinkles, cheeks losing their plumpness, or eyes showing our exhaustion detract from looking vibrant and youthful.  Instead of undergoing a typical facelift to merely tighten tissue, Dr. Schaffner's goal is to reveal his patient's younger face instead of a newly constructed one.  In addition to offering a tailored approach to cosmetic plastic surgery, JuvaLift is performed in the comfort of JUVA's accredited surgery center without general anesthesia, thereby minimizing risk, recovery time and expense.

While there have been major advances in injectable and laser technology, a "lift" is often necessary to obtain long-lasting results.  JuvaLift is ideal for patients who are looking for changes to be made to key areas of their face.  The procedure includes lifting tissue, removing excess skin that has sagged and smoothing out wrinkles.  In addition, a patient's own fat is often used to help restore fullness and improve skin quality.  Patients have found the results to be transforming.

"At JUVA, our patients come to us for state-of-the-art, specialized procedures in plastic and laser surgery.  JuvaLift offers those with very busy lives a safe and affordable approach to reversing some of the signs of aging," said Dr. Adam Schaffner.  "At JUVA, we are constantly perfecting the way our patients look while remaining sensitive to their concerns.  This procedure goes a step beyond simply reversing the look of aging by targeting different parts of the face in need of improvement to help to restore a patient's younger self."

JuvaLift takes one to three hours to perform.  Patients should allow ten to fourteen days to recover from this procedure.
