At New York’s Facial, Plastic, Reconstructive and Laser Surgery, our highly trained and compassionate Poughkeepsie facelift surgeons specialize exclusively on procedures of the face, nose and neck. Many patients feel discouraged when they look in the mirror. The face they see looks older and more tired than they feel. A facelift and necklift are the most popular solutions for aging patients.
Poughkeepsie facelift surgery, also called a rhytidectomy, cannot stop the aging process; however, it gives your face a more youthful, healthy and rested appearance.
Facelift surgery restores a well-defined, youthful face, neck and jawline to dramatically reduce the signs of aging. New York facelift patients experience an immediate increase in self-confidence. When you look at your face in the mirror it now more accurately represents how you feel inside.
During facelift surgery, we lift and reposition the underlying tissue and remove the loose, droopy or wrinkled skin. A facelift procedure restores the smooth contours of the face, making you look like your much younger self. A Poughkeepsie necklift procedure does the same for your neckline.
Using only state-of-the-art techniques, our Board Certified Poughkeepsie Facial Plastic Surgeons tailor their approach to address the needs of each patient.
We can smooth the wrinkles of your face, tightening the muscles of your neck, remove excess skin under the jawline and add volume to lift your cheeks to create an instantly more youthful appearance.
Who is a Candidate for Facelift Surgery?
Facelift surgery is appropriate for healthy men and women seeking to improve the contour of the face and neck. The best candidates for facelift surgery are those patients who are relatively healthy, do not smoke, and have realistic expectations. We recommend scheduling a consultation to see if facelift surgery is the best option for you.
To maintain their inner youth, many patients also turn to non-surgical facial rejuvenation before considering facelift surgery. Non-surgical procedures include Thermage® skin-tightening, laser skin rejuvenation, facial fillers and Poughkeepsie Botox®.
At Facial, Plastic, Reconstructive and Laser Surgery, our award-winning facelift surgeons deliver a natural, healthy and rejuvenated look, as opposed to an unnatural, operated-upon appearance.
Facelift surgery does not stop the aging process, but it does make patients of all ages look younger and rejuvenated and the results last for years to come.
What is the Recovery Like from Facelift Surgery?
Facelift surgery is performed in an outpatient setting with most patients returning home within a few hours after surgery. Light “awake” sedation or general anesthesia is used, depending on a patient’s preference.
Small incisions are hidden within the hairline, behind the ear and under the chin. The facial soft tissue is carefully “lifted” and rotated back to a more youthful position. Excess soft tissue and skin may be removed to improve the definition of the neck and jawline, and soften wrinkles that have formed secondary to excess skin laxity, thus restoring a youthful facial contour.
Facelift surgery results are seen within a few weeks, and you will be ready to show yourself off in a month or two. Patients may return to work and non-strenuous activities within a week or two. Some bruising, swelling, and discomfort can occur the first few days after surgery. Most patients feel confident returning to their public and social lives in about 10-14 days.
Before your surgery, our experienced team of Board Certified Poughkeepsie Facelift Surgeons will give you a variety of tips to improve your results and recovery time. Our proprietary Rapid Recovery Protocol™ utilizes minimally invasive techniques, supplements and homeopathic medications to speed healing time.
The latest technology including ultrasound treatments, massage and manual lymphatic drainage also ensure the quickest recovery possible. Detailed postoperative and aftercare instructions will be provided to each patient.

While there is no perfect age for a facelift, we typically see patients ranging in age from 40s to even 70’s, come in for a facelift consultation. Our medical professionals are happy to provide a facelift to patients even women in their 30s who are experiencing premature signs of aging or have had significant weight loss to women in their 70’s who are in good general health and desire a refreshed, rejuvenated look.
The results of your facelift have the potential to last more than 10 years. While the skin will still age as time goes on, the results of your facelift can be maintained with the help of non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatments. We often recommend our patients consider Botox® and fillers or medical-grade skin care to prolong the results of their facelift procedure.
Immediately following a facelift, it’s normal to experience swelling and bruising. While most swelling and bruising generally subsides within one month of having a facelift, we typically ask that our patients be patient for up to three months following their facelift to see their ultimate results. After about three months, all swelling will diminish and the skin will settle into its new position.
Yes, facelifts can and do look natural! Many of our patients are worried about looking “overdone” or “wind-blown” following their facelift procedures. Our medical professionals go through extensive advanced training using the latest techniques to provide patients with natural-looking, rejuvenated results.
Yes, a facelift can take up to 10 years off of a patient’s appearance. This is done by gently lifting the skin and structures of the lower face to contour the jawline, rejuvenate the facial features, and enhance the patient’s natural beauty for results that will leave patients looking refreshed and more youthful.
“Wonderful office, wonderful staff. Beautiful spa within. Everything under one roof. Dr. Abraham made me feel good about myself without taking advantage of my insecurities. He does minimally invasive services too. Overall great experience, I would recommend to anyone!”
~ Mary H., Highland, NY
“Dr. Abraham is wonderful at what he does–there is no one else with his skill and expertise in the area–and when comparing other offices in Manhattan and Westchester–we are really lucky to have his kind of expertise locally here in Dutchess County. I also chose a surgeon who’s board certified in facial plastics as opposed to a general plastic surgeon. He has a spa there in the office, and the aesthetician is great–there are a lot of nice treatment options.”

“My experience with Dr. Abraham was truly transforming. I began seeing him for Botox injections hoping to stave off the aged look I was developing. I began to see what a skilled surgeon he was as I meet other patients in the waiting room who had had facial reconstruction surgery and face lifts. As a woman fast approaching sixty, I wanted to lose my chicken neck and sagging jowls, but still look like myself. After consulting with Dr. Abraham he assured me I would look like myself only twenty years younger. I opted for a full face and neck lift. I couldn’t be happier with the results. Dr.Abraham is not just a surgeon, but an artist in his field. He stands by his work and his after surgery care is just as impeccable as his surgical skills. His staff is wonderful as well and always there when you need them. I highly recommend Dr. Abraham to anyone who finds themselves in need of a plastic surgeon.”

“I had a rhinoplasty to fix my broken nose. I had a bump and struggled breathing out of my nose. Dr. Abraham and his staff do a phenomenal job in preparing you for the surgery. They did a great job in making sure I was comfortable before and after my surgery. Dr. Abraham is personable and very caring in every appointment making it a pleasant experience!”
~ Clare M., RealSelf.com
Dr.Abraham is amazing! I was in a car accident in 2011 and broke my nose, and he did all he could to fix it and it look great! He is very attentive and patient. He is always willing to have you in the office if you have any concerns post op, which I did and was always professional and reassuring! I would HIGHLY recommend him!!!
~ @brijade608, RealSelf.com
“My experience with Dr. Abraham and his staff was wonderful from start to finish. I’ve had two surgical procedures which included a revision rhinoplasty, chin augmentation and ear lobe reduction – and have been delighted with the results! Dr. Abraham has a gentle manner, listens carefully to what result you are expecting, and is attuned to every detail from consultation, surgery and follow ups. I wouldn’t put my trust in anyone else!

“My experiences with Dr. Bassiri have been great. Getting lip fillers is a treatment I have been getting done for about 8 years now and I have never been this happy with them in all of that time. He knows exactly what he is doing and is really good at it. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.”

~ Lori D., Hudson Valley
“Every time I make a visit here I have a great experience, from the office staff to my physician, Ryan Young, PA-C. Everyone is exceptionally professional, courteous, and listens to what I have to say and need at the time. The waiting room is one of the most relaxing places, and someone is always checking on you. PA Ryan Young listens to me and addresses every concern I have. It is a doctors office I trust, and will continue to use.”
~ @storm0264, RealSelf.com
“After doing a lot of research and debating which Dr. to use for Botox injections I finally chose Dr. Bassiri and could not be happier with my decision. The results are amazing! I look younger, rested, and rejuvenated! Love the fact that the result looks very natural so it makes me feel beautiful and confident! Although a bit more expensive than what I am used to, the investment was worth every penny. He was very attentive during the consultation and procedure, answered all my questions and concerns and he eased my nerves during the procedure by talking to me to distract me. Don’t let his “baby face” fool you. He is super well prepared and experienced, very professional, and has a great eye for aesthetics. A master of his craft! I will happily recommend him to everyone!”
~ @LinaChiav, RealSelf.com
“I came to Dr. Bassiri with most of my cheek cut away, and he created a work of art! 9 mos later, the scar is hardly visible, although it rings half my face. He was patient and caring, always taking time to answer my questions fully. Highest recommendation!”

“Magic hands! Let me give you some context…I visited Dr. Kuthalia four years ago for breast augmentation. I researched about 50 plastic surgeons in the tri-state area and narrowed it down to six consultations. Dr. Kuthalia was my third consultation and I was amazed and thrilled to have found “the one”. She was very meticulous about sizing and shape for my specific body frame, giving me her honest professional advice as to what I can choose. I’ve never had surgery before and I was a bit scared, as was my family. She took the time to explain the surgery day protocol to me and I felt very at ease and comfortable with her. She’s now my go-to plastic surgeon for any procedure in the future because I trust her judgement and admire her greatly. You’re the best Dr. K!”

“If you are looking for a surgeon who listens to you, is passionate about her work and is also compassionate about how you are feeling, then I highly recommend Dr. Khuthaila! I never felt nervous or worried about my procedure. Also never felt stupid for asking any questions I had. She truly makes you feel so comfortable.”

“I have always felt very uncomfortable with the way my labia looked. I felt very embarrassed when looking at myself and felt very insecure when my partner would look at me as well. Although my partner always stated that he loved the way I looked, I could never feel comfortable. Not only that but it was fairly painful, especially when doing exercise or wearing tight jeans. When I found out about Labiaplasty, I was shocked and happy. I did not know it was possible to get rid of the excess skin. I researched for about 1 yr before I committed to it and began looking for a doctor. I found Dr. Dana Khuthaila. I went in for consultation and she and her staff were great!! They were very friendly and Dr. Khuthaila gave me her opinion on what should be done and why. I was informed and very ecstatic when I left from the consultation. Within a week I made an appointment for the procedure. It was the best decision I had ever made.”
~ @magenta122, RealSelf.com
“I’m struggling to find words sufficient to express my gratitude to Dr. Khuthalia and her team. Seriously. From the first contact with the office staff through consultation, breast augmentation and post-operative care, Dr. Khuthalia and her office staff couldn’t have been more wonderful, and the results leave me not just delighted but so glad I opted to have her do the surgery. The look is quite natural, the scar below each breast is not quite invisible but it is relatively small and fading. On the postoperative days: her pain management plan was well calculated and the post operative instructions worked exactly as she’d said they would. Nipple sensitivity is perfect, indeed, probably increased from before. And – the kicker – I’m well over 50. And transgender. And Dr. K? She’s just awesome.”
