In Buffalo, Dr. Shatkin performs Facelift Surgery, also known as Rhytidectomy or mini facelift, which is a surgical procedure designed to smooth and firm the skin, providing a fresh, youthful appearance. Dr. Shatkin and his team of skin care specialists beilieve in "Combination Rejuvenation" which essentially means correcting aging changes related to changes in the surface of the skin as well as laxity.  These corrections often require pre surgical treatment of the skin to achieve the maximal result and final outcome.  Since our skin is affected by the sun’s radiation, stress, gravity, and other factors cause it to sag and fit more loosely, areas of the face and neck, in particular around the jaw line, are especially prone to the aging process.  Though these changes are gradual, wrinkles and other signs of aging can make individuals “feel older” than they really are.

During the facelift procedure, Dr. Shatkin will lift  and realign the facial and neck skin to provide  a more youthful and natural look.  It is common that Dr. Shatkin will perform a facelift in conjunction with other facial cosmetic procedures such as eyelift and browlift and can be performed any time signs of aging begin to appear, however, patients are generally in their forties or older when they elect to undergo this procedure.
