New York Rhytidectomy

A facelift, also known as a rhytidectomy, and a neck lift, commonly referred to as a lower rhytidectomy, can restore a youthful appearance for those experiencing common signs of aging. These transformative procedures can help diminish deep wrinkles, loose skin, and fine lines throughout the face and neckline. Facelifts and neck lifts consist of many moving parts that are tailored to the individual needs of each patient.

Rhytidectomy is a versatile treatment option that can target several common concerns among patients, including:

  • Loose skin and wrinkles throughout the face
  • Jowls or sagging skin along the neck and jawline
  • Lost volume in the midface, including the cheeks
  • Fat that has drooped beneath the chin

Dr. Marc Everett works with their patients on an individual basis to address all of their concerns and ensure satisfying results that will keep them looking young for years to come.


The Procedure

The Procedure

Facelift Procedure

A facelift can be completed either under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with intravenous sedation. Depending on the patient, a facelift may be performed as an outpatient procedure, allowing some patients to return home the same day. Because every facelift is different, the duration of the surgery can last between two and five hours.

Incisions are made inconspicuously around the ears and in the hairline, preventing prominent scarring from hampering results. The underlying muscles and tissues of the face are pulled and repositioned through the incisions, while excess skin and fat are removed. The result is a rejuvenated appearance through the elimination of loose skin and wrinkles.

Neck Lift Procedure

If a lower rhytidectomy is being completed on its own without the addition of a facelift, the procedure steps will be similar but slightly different. Patients will be numbed using either general or local anesthesia before the first incision is made. If excess fat has contributed to the appearance of heavy jowls or a double chin, liposuction may be used during the procedure to remove fat. Any incisions will be made in inconspicuous locations around the ears and below the chin to make sure scarring does not distract from the results.

After the incisions have been made, excess skin and fat deposits will be removed. The underlying muscle and tissue of the neck will be repositioned, and skin will be pulled taut before closing the incisions with stitches. Neck lift surgery is an outpatient procedure and generally takes two hours or less.

Recovery & Results

The recovery period from rhytidectomy typically lasts about two to four weeks. Patients should expect to return to work in about ten days, while exercise and more strenuous activities can be gradually resumed over six weeks. Final results will develop over six months as the scars mature and swelling continues to fade.

Common side effects include swelling, bruising, numbness, and a feeling of tightness. These side effects are typically mild to moderate and mostly diminish over the first two weeks of recovery. Blood thinners should be avoided two weeks before and after the procedure to prevent excessive bleeding and other potential complications. Patients will need to sleep with an elevated head for the first one to two weeks to minimize swelling and facilitate a faster recovery. Results will continue to improve over several months as swelling subsides and incisions lines fade.

Q&A with Dr. Marc Everett

How visible are bruising and swelling following the procedure?

The amount of bruising and swelling present following surgery varies with each patient, but you should expect to have noticeable side effects for your first few weeks. Some patients find their side effects heal quickly, while others may experience lingering bruising or swelling for some time despite a careful recovery. For most patients, the majority of noticeable side effects will fade within three weeks of the procedure.

What age is best to receive a rhytidectomy?

Middle-aged men and women in their 40s to 60s tend to be the best candidates for a facelift or neck lift, although no age limit exists for the procedure. Visible signs of aging begin to develop during your 30s and become more noticeable in your 40s, leading many people to develop an interest in cosmetic surgery around this time. Generally speaking, younger patients can recover more quickly and benefit best from a surgical procedure like rhytidectomy, although satisfying results and a safe recovery are not limited to any specific age group.

Can men receive a facelift or neck lift?

Absolutely. While plastic surgery tends to be geared mostly towards women, men deserve to love the way they look, too. Men can benefit from a facelift or neck lift to add definition back to their jawline and remove any bothersome signs of aging. We can discuss your concerns with you during a one-on-one consultation and explain more about how these procedures can benefit people of any gender.

How long will it be before I can return to work?

Most patients return to work between one to two weeks after their procedure. Ten days tends to be the average amount of time spent away from work.  This can vary depending on the patient’s age and how quickly their noticeable side effects fade. You should spend at least one week focusing solely on recovery to ensure your body receives the rest it needs.

What areas of the face can be addressed during a rhytidectomy?

Rhytidectomy can address sagging jowls, deep lines around the mouth and nose, sunken cheeks and pronounced forehead wrinkles. Other procedures, such as blepharoplasty or brow lifts, can be performed simultaneously to address a wide range of problem areas on the face. We will discuss every one of your concerns with you during your initial consultation so we can be sure to formulate a comprehensive cosmetic plan that will leave you satisfied for years to come.

How visible are the scars?

We work tirelessly to ensure your scars will be easily hidden within the natural folds of skin surrounding your ears, as well as within your hairline. Modern facelift and neck lift techniques allow for minimized scars that are difficult to spot even to the trained eye, ensuring you can enjoy your results without the fear of noticeable scarring. Scars take about one year to fully mature, although makeup can be used within the first month of the procedure to easily cover them up. Most patients find their scars are mostly unnoticeable even without makeup after one to two months of healing.

How long do the results from rhytidectomy last?

The results of your procedure can vary depending on your age, skin type, and what type of surgery you undergo. Some patients enjoy their results for an average of four to six years, while others maintain their results for upwards of ten years. We will discuss what sort of results you can expect during an initial consultation where we evaluate your needs and concerns.

If eliminating signs of aging and enjoying a younger appearance interests you, then call Dr. Marc Everett today and schedule a rhytidectomy consultation. Dr. Everett and Dr. Shokrian are ready to give you the results you desire with the expert care and attention you deserve. To book an appointment, call us today at 212-774-7715.

Rapid Recovery Breast Reduction In NYC

It’s time you chose the right doctor to perform your breast reduction in NYC. Achieving your ideal body image is no easy endeavor, but Dr. Marc Everett has helped thousands of women attain this goal by creating and sculpting a more attractive and proportionate breast. Dr. Everett performs the breast reduction operation more than any other, and his techniques and care strategies are designed in such a way to result in spectacular outcomes with almost no care needed after surgery and minimal downtime.


Dr. Everett's Signature Breast Reduction with Internal Bra Support

“The breast is the three dimensional body structure that I enjoy building the most. The key to designing the perfect breast operation is to interpret the nuances that make your breasts different from everyone elses’, and then design the blueprint that results in the operation that will create a beautiful, high breast with longevity.”


Reasons to Consider Breast Reduction Surgery

Breast reduction surgery can help individuals relieve the physical discomfort and emotional distress that many people with large breasts may feel. This procedure can offer many benefits to patients, including:

  • Improved self-image and self-confidence
  • More balanced body proportions
  • Increased ability to exercise and be physically active
  • Expanded clothing options
  • Reduced bra strap indentations and skin irritation
  • Improved posture
  • Alleviated neck, shoulder and back pain

Is Breast Reduction
Right for You?

Dr. Everett will determine if you are a good candidate for this procedure after an in-person evaluation. You may be a good candidate for a breast reduction if:

  • You are in good general health
  • You do not smoke
  • You are suffering from negative physical and mental effects due to overly large breasts
  • Your breasts are finished developing
  • You have realistic expectations of the outcome of the procedure

New York City Breast Reduction In NYC

Breast reduction surgery begins with a comprehensive consultation with Dr. Everett, who has garnered a reputation as one of the best breast reduction surgeons in NYC. As this is the procedure he performs most often, it’s also the consultation he sees the most patients for.

During this initial meeting, Dr. Everett will explain the options available to you and educate you about the implications of future pregnancy, ability to breastfeed, changes in nipple sensation, and more so that you may make informed decisions about your procedure. Multiple techniques may be considered, but the method you and Dr. Everett ultimately choose will depend on multiple factors, including: the size of your breasts, the type of excess tissue present, and your individual goals. The objectives of the breast reduction surgery are threefold.


The Three Goals of Breast Reduction according to Dr. Everett


The first objective is to remove anywhere between a third and two-thirds of your breast tissue, reducing the actual weight that neck, upper back and shoulders have to carry.


The second objective is the redistribution of the remaining breast tissue higher onto your chest wall. This changes the weight bearing dynamic and now your breasts will be seated high and pointed forward, facing your movements, instead of hanging low and away from you and working against your movements, i.e. “the pendulum effect.”


The third objective is to create two beautiful breast mounds that are nearly identical in size, shape and position. The third objective is never less important than the first two. In fact, Dr. Everett considers every single breast reduction to be a “Cosmetic Breast Reduction.” It doesn’t matter if your operation is covered by your insurance or paid for out of pocket.

Rapid Recovery

New York breast reduction is easier than you would ever imagine it to be. NYC breast surgery is an outpatient surgery performed under general anesthesia. Dr. Everett also never uses drains in this operation, as he doesn’t feel there is an indication to do so.

Additionally, Dr. Everett utilizes the most cutting edge pain reduction techniques for breast reduction surgery. In fact, most of our patients do not take a single pain pill, and as long as your job doesn’t demand significant physical labor, you can return to work in 4-5 days.

The tensions on your neck and shoulders can disappear immediately and some patients improve their posture in weeks. You will notice results right away and will continue seeing the evolution of your breast surgery results over the next several months. Some subtle changes can continue for up to a year until your breasts are fully settled.

NYC Breast Surgery:
Reductions and Insurance


The cost of plastic surgery is something that many of our clients wonder about before they visit. Most health insurance plans do not cover elective procedures like cosmetic surgery. This means that no matter what the cost of your surgery is, you will likely need to pay out of pocket. There are some exceptions, however, and New York breast reduction surgery may be one.

In many cases, a breast reduction procedure alleviates unpleasant or painful symptoms that women experience as a result of having disproportionately large breasts. Consider the ways your breast size impacts your daily life and create a list that details how your breasts are problematic for your health and well-being. Women whose breasts are sizable enough to cause problems such as neck and shoulder pain, skin irritation or difficulty exercising may be eligible for breast reduction surgery that is partially or fully covered by their health insurance plan. It’s unlikely that your procedure will be covered if you have no symptoms and are seeking a breast reduction solely for cosmetic purposes.

If you aren’t sure whether your breasts are impacting your health, a visit with a visit to Dr. Everett or your primary care doctor for an exam can help bring any medical concerns to light.

The Procedure

the  procedure

Breast reduction surgery in NYC begins with a consultation. During this initial meeting, Dr. Everett will explain the options available to you so that you may make informed decisions about your procedure. Multiple techniques can be utilized when performing breast reduction surgery. The method used for you will depend on the size of your breasts, the type of excess tissue present and your desired outcome.

To begin the procedure, Dr. Everett will make incisions in the designated areas. The nipple will then be adjusted to place it in a more upright and centered location. If necessary, the areola will be reduced at this point. Dr. Everett will then remove excess skin and tissue and reshape the remaining tissue, ensuring symmetry between both breasts. The incisions will be sutured closed to complete the procedure.


Traditional or Anchor Incision

The traditional or anchor incision technique requires three incisions: one around the areola within the natural texture of the skin, one extending vertically from the areola to the natural crease beneath the breast and one horizontally underneath the fold of the breast. This method maximizes the amount of tissue removal possible and can treat moderate to severe sagging.


Vertical or Lollipop

The vertical or lollipop incision technique utilizes two of the incisions from the traditional technique but avoids the horizontal incision beneath the breast. This is a newer method that allows for mild to moderate tissue removal, meaning it is not the best option for all patients.

Recovery & Results

Expect to rest for about 48 hours after your procedure. Common side effects include swelling, bruising, soreness, numbness and discomfort that can last several hours. Some patients can return to work in one week, while others may need to wait two weeks before resuming their daily schedules. Plan to wear a sports bra for at least four weeks after your procedure. Underwire and push-up bras can harm your results and irritate your incisions while they heal. Dr. Everett will provide you with thorough postoperative instructions so you can ensure your body receives the care it needs to heal and deliver beautiful results.

Breast Reduction Results

Results will be noticeable right away and will continue to develop over the coming weeks. Swelling will make your breasts larger at first and they may temporarily appear asymmetrical if they heal at different rates. Final results are typically visible three to six months into recovery, although subtle changes in size can continue for up to one year. The scars will reach full maturity in about 12 to 18 months. Once your breasts have settled into their new size and shape, you can enjoy your size reduction — as well as improved self-confidence, relief from discomfort and a broader range of clothing options — well into the future.

Breast Reduction FAQ’s

Why is it called rapid recovery breast reduction?

Dr. Everett utilizes the most cutting-edge pain reduction techniques for breast reduction surgery.  In fact, most of our patients do not take a single pain pill, and as long as your job doesn’t demand significant physical labor, you can return to work in 4-5 days. Dr. Everett also never uses drains in this operation, as he doesn’t feel there is an indication to do so.

Am I a good candidate for breast reduction surgery?

Good candidates for breast reduction surgery are women who are in good health, do not smoke, are suffering from negative physical and mental effects due to overly large breasts, and whose breasts are finished developing. We can better determine if you are a good candidate after an in-person evaluation.

Which incision technique is best for me?

We will discuss this with you in detail after performing an in-person evaluation. Not every option is available to each patient. Sometimes the best method for patients may not correlate with their desires for minimal scarring, but we always emphasize placing a priority on results and improved quality of life, rather than the presence of minor scarring. We will help you make an informed incision during this part of the process so that you can be satisfied with your results.

How long before I can go swimming or take a bath?

Once your surgical bandages have been removed, you are free to shower and get your incisions wet. However, you should refrain from submerging your breasts until your incisions have fully healed. Avoid swimming or taking a bath for at least two days following surgery.

Will I be able to breastfeed after breast reduction surgery?

Breast reduction surgery can make breastfeeding more difficult later in life. Depending on the method used for the surgery, breastfeeding may not be an option for all patients following breast reduction. We will go over this with you more in-depth before your surgery and take every precaution necessary to both provide optimal results and retain your ability to breastfeed if possible.

How long will results last?

You can enjoy your size reduction following surgery well into the future. We only perform breast reduction after the patient’s breasts have stopped developing, so you will not need to worry about returning to your pre-surgery size. Pregnancy and weight gain can affect your results, however, since both can lead to an increase in breast size. We can discuss this in more detail during an initial consultation.

What kind of bra will I need to wear following surgery?

You should plan on wearing a sports bra for at least four weeks after your procedure. Underwire and push-up bras can harm your results and also irritate incisions while they heal. You should refrain from purchasing new and expensive bras until most of your swelling has diminished, around two or three months into your recovery.
