Facelift Surgeon in Maine

My best advice would be for you to visit the American Society of Plastic Surgeons website where you can search for the board certified plastic surgeons in your area. Then, go to each one's website and look at his or her facelift results. Once you find the 2 or 3 that you like best, schedule consultations to meet each one in person. The relationship between plastic surgeon and patient is extremely personal so vital that you have an in person assessment.

Who is the top surgeon for a facelift in New England or New York?

Since the Spider Web Aesthetics is performed under topical anesthesia, there is no need for a recovery period. You will see the difference and the lifting just after the procedure however the final results will be seen 3-6 months after the procedure. Since the effects are depended the capability of the body to produce collagen; the age, severity of the sagging, physical condition of the patient are some of the factors that are related with the results. Patients can continue to their daily life just after the procedure

Finding the best plastic surgeon for facelift.

Finding the best plastic surgeon is not like finding the fastest runner in a race, where whoever crosses the finish line 1st wins.  There are excellent surgeons in Boston and NYC and Maine.  You should start by looking at the American Society of Plastic Surgeons website for board certified plastic surgeons in your area.  Then check their websites for before and after photos.  Finally, plan on several consultations to find the doctor you feel most comfortable with.  This will be the "best" doctor for you.


Hello and thank you for your question.  There are many expert facelift surgeons in this area.  It is very important that you thoroughly research your surgeon before committing to surgery. It is a good idea to research your surgeon's educational background, online reviews, before & after pictures, and speak with anyone who you may know who has had surgery with that surgeon.  If good technique is used, a facelift can be done with minimal scarring and can result in a natural look, not over-done look, with rejuvenation of your face.  Make sure you specifically look at before and after pictures of real patients who have had this surgery performed by your surgeon and evaluate their results. The most important aspect is to find a surgeon you are comfortable with. I recommend that you seek consultation with a qualified board-certified plastic surgeon who can evaluate you in person.

Best wishes and good luck.

Make your own decision

I think that most of the names that have been mentioned are indeed correct. There are quite a few facial plastic surgeons who have mainly facelift practices. While all their work is good you should also feel comfortable with the surgeon and see their results in person (everyone's aesthetic is different)

You will probably obtain hundreds of different answers, all of them containing legitimately well trained Surgeons who obtain excellent results.  In NYC, Anthony Sclafani, Marc Zimbler, David Rosenberg, Steve Pearlman, Phillip Miller, and Andrew Jacono are people I know and respect.  In Massachussetts, Frank Fechner does great work.  Good Luck.

Facelift Surgery


There are plenty of great surgeons in the NYC area.. you have to choose the one you feel most comfortable with. You can start by researching them on their websites and looking at their before and afters, credentials etc. Then visit them and see if you have a good "bond". You can also ask to speak to their recent patients. 

Hope this helps.

Top facelift surgeon

There is no best per se. In both Boston and New York, with outstanding academic hospitals and residency programs, there are many outstanding plastic surgeons who enjoy performing facelifts.  You have an enormous range of choice. The key is which surgeon you feel combines technical expertise and a caring manner.  The only way to determine that is to seek consultations with several and then make a decision as to the one with whom you are most comfortable. Best wishes.
