Located in New Jersey, the Glasgold Group known for their expertise in facial plastic surgery have been providing services for over 40 years, caring for entire families over multiple generations. Robert Glasgold, M.D. feels that, “patient relationships spanning decades provides a unique perspective on our long term cosmetic results. We want to make sure that the surgeries and technologies we use are going to produce results that appear natural in both the short and long term.”
According to Mark Glasgold, M.D., “There is no exact answer to how long cosmetic surgery will last but across our patients we see a consistent high level of long term satisfaction”. Cosmetic surgery can be approached as a one-time event to set back the clock or as an ongoing maintenance process. Invariably patients who start earlier are able to maintain a more youthful and natural appearance longer.
Ann is a patient who came to us at age 50 and started with skin care and Botox. She had a fat transfer at age 52 and then a facelift at age 58. Here at the age of 62 she feels that she looks better than at 50 and she will continue to look healthy and youthful.
The Glasgold Group adopted deep plane facelifts in 1996 and since then we have performed over 1000. We favor the deep plane facelift for its natural and long lasting result. Patients who have excess skin, significant sun damage or smoke will not hold up as well, though 10 years after a facelift they will still look better than before the surgery. Here is an example of a patient who had a deep plane facelift and endoscopic browlift, 1 year and 7 years after surgery.
Mark Glasgold was one of the first surgeons to understand and embrace the importance of volume replacement in treating the aging face. Starting in 1999 we began combining autologous fat transfer with deep plane facelifts and this combination provides remarkable longevity.
The amount of fat that takes with a fat transfer is highly variable from patient to patient, but once we achieve a result we find that this can last many years. Most commonly we observe that continued volume loss over time results in the need to touch up fat transfers. A fat transfer to the midface was performed on this patient. 5 years after her fat transfer she became a body builder and but the result of her fat transfer has maintained.
We are very grateful to our patients for their continued trust in our services.
