"Dr. Caplin is really wonderful. My mother saw her at the beginning of 2018 for a lower facelift and the results, follow up and care were awesome. As it probably happens, my mother got the itch again in 2019 to have a breast lift & augmentation - so of course I said I would do it too. Dr. Caplin listened to us and the results are better than we expected. We were seen on the same day and the team at CSA remembered us from the prior year - oh we remember your mom’s dancing after surgery. :) Yes, that happened. My mom had no problems after surgery and she looks amazing less than 8 weeks later! I sadly decided to slip about a week after surgery and injured the area that just had surgery but there was an immediate response directly from Dr. Caplin and her team. I am happy to report that I feel great, energy is back and I have breasts that I love for the first time in my life. (Mom reports the same)"- J.R. / Yelp / Jul 20, 2019
"Three surgeries with Dr.Nuveen - I have had a face lift followed by a tummy tuck. Finally , last week a breast reduction and lift. I am 76. My husband and I are enjoying my new look. I feel so good about me. Dr. Nuveen has been so caring about me. The entire staff are delightful. I am so glad I made the choice of the surgeries but especially using Dr Nuveen. Thank you again for my new ME."- Anonymous / Vitals / May 03, 2020
"Dr. Nuveen performed my neck and lower face lift and I could not be happier! His staff is friendly and professional. The facility is top notch! All of my questions were answered thoroughly and their follow-up care is thorough as well. I had three consults in three different cities. So glad I landed here! I had wanted this surgery for a long time and I'm so glad I finally did it. I just wish I had done it sooner!"- J. / Healthgrades / Aug 18, 2020
"Dr. Nuveen's new 'Vampire Facelift' performed by Jessica -Rock Star!-changed my under eye bags drastically in only one procedure so far by using my own blood platelets injected under my eyes like a filler (I've had fillers injected there before & they pooled up & caused a puffy look making them WORSE than before, many years ago) so I'm a huge fan of this procedure and can't wait for my next one!"- T.C. / Facebook / Feb 07, 2021
"I have met my fair share of plastic surgeons, and when I say that none of them compare to Dr. Caplin, I mean it wholeheartedly. She is by far the most considerate, kind, brilliant doctor I’ve ever met. She goes above and beyond with her patient care and knowledge of procedures. I just had surgery yesterday with her and she not only exceeded my expectations with how great everything looks, but she even called me herself yesterday evening to check on me and see how I was doing. When she’s with you in the room, you feel as if you’re her only patient in the world. She tunes everything else out and gives you her undivided attention. She answers all questions, double checks to make sure your concerns are taken care of, she doesn’t rush or anything. She’s a truly WONDERFUL woman and doctor and she literally lights up the room when she enters. I didn’t even bother seeking a second opinion because when I met her at my consult, I knew she was the perfect surgeon for me. She was booked out for months but I didn’t care. I was happy to wait. She is WORTH THE WAIT. She even gave me her personal cell number in case I have any questions or concerns. Words can’t express how wonderful she is. If you’re looking for an incredible plastic surgeon, look no further."- K.N. / Yelp / Sep 08, 2021
Commonly, individuals curious about facelift surgery are those who are bothered by visible lines and wrinkles around the middle and bottom sections of the face. Facelift surgery can target various concerns, depending on your unique needs. Candidates should note that age won't always determine the best time to receive a facelift. There are numerous unique factors and also multiple lift types to take into account. The method chosen will vary for patients under 50 when compared to those in their 60s and 70s. Skin laxity is one of the most important elements in the planning process. Depending on your individual needs, there are numerous facelifts available. Some facelifts treat the upper portion of the face while others focus on the middle and lower. It is also common for some patients to have a brow lift, forehead lift, or fillers and BOTOX® to complement and enhance their results.
Which facelift technique is best for me?
The best technique for you will vary based on your concerns, goals, degree of skin laxity, areas being addressed, and other factors. To produce the results you want, our team of skilled surgeons will go over the different surgical techniques during your consultation. We will then help you decide which technique is best for you.
What about wrinkle fillers and relaxers over facelift surgery?
Injectable wrinkle fillers and relaxers, like BOTOX and JUVÉDERM®, have become more popular to improve fine lines and wrinkles. Sometimes known as a liquid facelift, injectable wrinkle treatments are good for early signs of aging; however, the results are temporary. A facelift can produce more significant improvements compared to injectables with results that can last for a long time. Ask our team about nonsurgical wrinkle treatments in your consultation.
Will my results look natural?
Many patients worry that facelift surgery will make their skin look shiny, overly tight, or like they are in a wind tunnel. At Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates, we focus on giving you a natural-looking result, so you appear refreshed and not fake. We will listen to your concerns and goals before creating your personal treatment plan to produce the best results.
