Facial rejuvenation procedures can be performed on several areas of the face and neck. An array of procedures is available, both surgical and non-surgical. Depending on your aesthetic goals and your overall health and facial condition, Dr. Hamawy will recommend the most appropriate procedure or combination of treatments for you.
What is facial rejuvenation?
At Princeton Plastic Surgeons, we offer a wide variety of treatment options to treat the signs of aging facial skin. If you are just beginning to see your skin quality diminishing, you may seek a treatment to smooth fine lines, wrinkles, or treat skin discolorations. Or if you have more mature skin with deeper wrinkles and loose or sagging skin, you may be interested in procedures resulting in a longer-term reversal of these conditions. Our treatments range from non-surgical procedures such as BOTOX injections, dermal fillers, or a regular HydraFacial (a multi-step skin rejuvenation treatment) to more invasive surgeries such as a facelift, neck lift, or eyelid surgery.
A facelift is the most comprehensive facial rejuvenation procedure. Your facial skin and tissue will eventually reach a point in which only surgery can correct sagging skin, jowls, deep lines and creases, and sagging cheeks. The procedure is always customized for you, performed with exceptional delicacy and skill, and produces a result that appears refreshed, smooth, and youthful – never tight, pulled, or unnatural. Dr. Hamawy uses the most advanced techniques for superior results.
The eyelids are one of the first places you will see the signs of aging. Eyelid skin is very fine and delicate, and over time, will begin to thin and sag, eventually creating a larger fold that covers some of your upper eyes. There is no hiding the condition, and eye creams and serums may keep the area hydrated, but in the end, surgery is the only way to rejuvenate your eyes thoroughly. The procedure requires exceptional skill, as the amount of skin removed is minimal. Under the care of Dr. Hamawy, you can expect to look refreshed, younger, and like yourself.
If you have a heavy, overhanging brow and a deeply-creased forehead, facial rejuvenation may require brow lift surgery. Depending on the degree of saggy skin and creases, or excess tissue causing the brow to appear heavy or eyebrows to have drifted lower on the facial structure, the surgery can be performed endoscopically or with a more traditional approach. The added benefit of a brow lift is a subtle lifting of the eyelids. The result is a younger-looking, refreshed facial appearance in either case.
Am I a candidate for facial rejuvenation?
Anyone looking to improve their appearance by addressing signs of aging is a candidate for facial rejuvenation. Dr. Hamawy is a board-certified plastic surgeon with extensive experience in both cosmetic and reconstructive surgery. One of his top priorities is to achieve a natural-looking result, regardless of the treatments performed.
The best procedure for you will depend upon several factors, including the current condition of your skin, your overall health, and your personal goals. Facial rejuvenation treatments are available to resolve multiple cosmetic complaints, such as:

- Loose skin and excess fat in the neck area
- Sun damage

The facial rejuvenation treatments at Princeton Plastic Surgeons provide varying degrees of skin renewal and revitalization.

All of these issues can be resolved in a custom facial rejuvenation treatment. Some of the benefits include:
- Smoother, younger-looking skin
- Tighter skin
- More radiant, glowing skin
- Even skin tone and texture
- More refined pores
- Collagen stimulation for long-lasting, natural results
- Restoring more youthful contours and definition
Non-Surgical Facial rejuvenation procedures
It is essential that you are educated and informed about the facial rejuvenation procedures you need. Dr. Hamawy places great emphasis on ensuring he understands what you hope to achieve. A full discussion allows him to tailor your treatment plan according to your unique set of circumstances to ensure he meets your personal vision for rejuvenation.
Whether you require a non-invasive treatment such as HydraFacial or Ultherapy (a method of ultrasound skin tightening) or a surgical procedure such as a facelift, Dr. Hamawy will walk you through every aspect of the process, ensuring you are aware of all the benefits and risks involved so that you can make an informed decision.
We offer a wide range of non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatments. Options include:
- BOTOX: To smooth dynamic wrinkles
- Dermal fillers: To fill volume-deficient areas for a younger look
- Chemical peels: Medical grade peels to reveal more youthful, glowing facial skin
- HydraFacial: A multi-step facial rejuvenation treatment to exfoliate and nourish your skin
- Medical-grade skin care products: To enhance skin quality and protect against sun damage
- Kybella: An injectable that melts away under-chin fat without surgery
- Ultherapy: A groundbreaking skin-tightening treatment
- ThermiSmooth and ThermiRF: A skin-tightening and smoothing treatment that uses temperature-controlled radiofrequency energy
What to expect
Your treatment time will vary depending on the procedure. Treatment time for non-invasive procedures is typically between 15 and 30 minutes, with little to no downtime. If anesthesia is administered for your comfort, it is usually topical or local. Surgical procedures such as facelifts can take several hours and require administering either local or general anesthetic. While the recovery time is longer, surgical procedures yield more dramatic results, which last longer. Dr. Hamawy will be able to guide and advise you to determine which treatment will be best suited to your lifestyle, goals, and expectations.
