Many of the older generation use the term “plastic surgeons” for what the younger crowd calls “cosmetic surgery.” Others just simply say that they want a facelift in San Francisco or a “neck lift.” It doesn’t matter what you call him – cosmetic surgeon, plastic surgeon, or facelift surgeon. What matters more than anything is that you have a surgeon who cares.
At Visage Medspa & Facial Plastic Surgery Center, our Dr. Alex Rabinovich is a physician with advanced training in Facial Plastic Surgery as well as Cranio-Maxillofacial Surgery. Educated in both medicine (MD, SUNY Downstate College of Medicine) and dentistry (DDS, Columbia University) and practicing in San Francisco, Dr. Rabinovich is a specialist in facial cosmetic surgery and is the inventor of the Visage Face Lift and Neck Lift. These are superior to the traditional face and neck lifts used by other plastic surgeons in San Francisco.
This is because they go deeper under the muscle than with the traditional method, and this means that the muscle is lifted back up to where it was originally before age and gravity took their toll. The fat and muscle are lifted and tightened, with any excess skin being removed. The Visage Face Lift results in less bruising and swelling and there is no tension on the superficial layers and the skin, which means that the scars heal better and faster. In fact, most patients are able to return to work within two weeks and can wear their hair up without any visible scarring after a few weeks if they wish.
Most important of all is the fact that the Visage Face Lift and Neck Lift produce a much smoother, more natural appearance than with the traditional procedures used by other plastic surgeons in San Francisco.
Cleft Lip And Palate
Dr. Rabinovich also carries out orthognathic surgery and can restore a cleft lip and palate. These are one of the most common defects that can be found, and they occur in around one in every 700 babies. Initial treatment for cleft lip and palate can be carried out when the child is only a few weeks old, although further surgeries may be required as the child gets older. Most babies born with one of these conditions do not have any other abnormalities and are perfectly healthy.
Dr. Rabinovich also is an expert at treating facial trauma which is often the result of accidents, and of course can vary considerably from one patient to the next.
If you are looking for plastic surgeons in San Francisco – or cosmetic surgeons, or whatever you want to call them – and you want a surgeon who cares, make an appointment to see Dr Rabinovich.
