C-Lift

Located In New York City

The C-Lift is a cousin of the Limited Incision Facelift Technique. Dr. Imber began offering this least invasive operation to men some ten years ago. It gained wide acceptance in his practice for a number of reasons. Most men are concerned primarily with jowls and loosening skin under the jawline and neck. When dealing with men, several anatomical differences from women must be respected.

Dr. Imber is an internationally renowned plastic surgeon and has performed over 25,000 surgical procedures. He performs a full range of cosmetic surgery procedures in his New York City practice, popularized the S-Lift, and developed the Limited Incision Face Lift Technique. He has dedicated his career to helping his patients look as good as they feel, and always strives for the most natural results.

C-Lift

The C-Lift is a cousin of the Limited Incision Facelift Technique. We began offering this least invasive operation to men some ten years ago. This facelift technique gained wide acceptance at Dr. Imber’s practice, especially for men, because it was developed around their facial anatomy targeting concerns like jowls and loosening skin under the jawline and neck, which is much different than women’s. While Dr. Imber can use this technique on women, it is rare. This technique encourages the most natural looking results without the appearance of scars.

C-Lift Goals

This surgical procedure focuses on tightening the loose skin under the jawline and neck, and eliminating the jowls and nasolabial folds.

C-Lift Candidates

The C-Lift, like other facelift options, addresses visible signs of aging like loose skin under the jaw, jowls, and nasolabial folds.

What to Expect During Your C-Lift

Dr. Imber and his staff will review the entire surgical process with you leading up to your surgery. During your C-Lift, Dr. Imber will make a small C-shaped incision within the sideburn, sometimes extending into a natural crease for an inch, or so, and a small incision under the jaw to remove skin and help tighten the muscles.

Recovering From Your C-Lift

Everyone recovers differently. Most can return to some sort of normal routine about 10 days after surgery, but it varies for everyone. Dr. Imber’s team of nurses and patient coordinators will review all recovery guidelines with you before and after your surgical procedure. Additionally, a member of Dr. Imber’s team is always available to answer any questions and make your recovery as easy as possible.

How Does A C-Lift Work?

Dr. Imber will review the entire C-Lift procedure with you leading up to your surgical appointment. The C-Lift is one of the least invasive facelift options because it effectively improves loose skin and jowls with very concealed scarring in the sideburn and under the chin.

What Type Of Anesthesia Will I Receive?

Dr. Imber’s board-certified anesthesiologist will call you the night before surgery to review all guidelines necessary the morning of your surgery. Prior to this, Dr. Imber’s nurses will advise medical clearance and discuss any other guidelines to follow before your surgery. Most patients receive local anesthesia with sedation and Dr. Imber’s anesthesiologist is on site the day of your surgery.

Are There Any Non-Invasive Alternatives?

If you are a candidate for a facelift, there aren’t any non-invasive options that can yield the results you are looking to achieve like that of a C-Lift.

Do I Need Any Special Garment Or Bindings?

Dr. Imber’s team of nurses will provide you with everything you need in advance of the surgery and are always available to answer any questions you may have.

Why Do I Need A Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon?

A board-certified plastic surgeon holds the highest levels of education and training needed to deliver the best results. This qualification is not easy to achieve, so by using a board-certified plastic surgeon, you know they meet the standards of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.

Will There Be Any Scarring?

The C-Lift focuses on natural results with little visible scarring. While results vary for every patient, Dr. Imber will review expectations during your consultation and pre-operative appointment.

How much does a C-Lift Cost?

Actual surgical pricing will be determined at the time of consultation. Schedule your consultation with Dr. Imber today by emailing or calling our office at (212) 472-1800.
