There are many reasons to consider facial plastic and reconstructive surgery. The best is to make you feel more comfortable with yourself. Dr. Nicole Schrader, MD FACS has been providing these services for over 10 years, six of them in private practice in Princeton, and has performed hundreds of facelift surgeries. Dr. Schrader spends an extensive amount of time with each patient to understand their individual needs before discussing personalized treatment options.
Dr. Schrader is a double board certified surgeon in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and Otolaryngology (Ear, Nose, and Throat Specialty) & Head/Neck Surgery in Princeton. Her goal is to provide you with the highest quality facial aesthetics/reconstructive and head/neck treatments.
“The aging process may look quick, but it is very slow,” she says.
“Loss of collagen and elastin are major factors because they give your skin the elasticity. But there is also loss of facial volume due to loss of fat and bone absorption. Both make the facial tissue more descended.”
“There are many things we can do ourselves to delay aging,” Dr. Schrader says. “Apply sunblock with an SPF of 35 or higher year-round to protect your skin and diminish damage to the elastic fibers. And skincare products that are rich in moisturizer and antioxidants are so important.”
Of course, even the most vigilant home regimen isn’t a complete remedy. Dr. Schrader is proud to offer the new non-surgical facial rejuvenation procedure, Ultherapy. “It is not a facelift but an uplift of the face, neck, eyebrow and eyelid — Ultherapy uses precisely delivered ultrasound technology to gradually strengthen and tone your skin. Ultherapy utilizes the Ulthera system, which is the first and only device cleared by the FDA for use as a non-invasive treatment for the face with a specific indication for eyebrow lift. By using focused energy, Ulthera achieves firmer and tighter skin with a natural result.”
The beauty of this procedure is that it takes place in a 30 to 60-minute session, and there is no downtime. It is not a replacement for surgical face and eyelid lift, but patients can return to their normal activities as soon as they leave the office.
