Do you look in the mirror and see an aging face that does not reflect how you feel inside? As you age, your skin loses elasticity, wrinkles develop and facial tissue loses its youthful fullness. This process can start as early as your 30s. With advances in facial cosmetic surgery, Dr. Nathan Nachlas is able to help his patients achieve natural results. Specifically, his patients enjoy a more youthful appearance that helps them look as good on the outside as they feel on the inside.


This is a 55-year-old female with significant loss of skin elasticity and jowl formation. Facial cosmetic surgery restored a more youthful appearance to her neck and jaw line.

Dr. Nachlas stresses natural and subtle cosmetic procedures, which enhance rather than change one’s appearance. In his years of extensive training and experience in facial plastic surgery, Dr. Nachlas has developed advanced techniques for creating natural-looking results. He will work closely with you to determine treatment options that match your individual needs. As with all elective surgery, good health and realistic expectations are a must.

Successful facial plastic surgery is a result of a good rapport between patient and surgeon. Because each patient is different, your treatment plan should be customized for you. Dr. Nachlas will spend a good deal of time with you, discussing your procedure, your questions, and your goals in order to develop this individualized treatment plan.

No one wants to look older than they feel, but sometimes your face ages faster than you would like. The Florida sun, repeated facial expressions and genetics all contribute to skin wrinkles. By your 40’s or 50’s, these wrinkles can alter your face’s appearance. To maintain your youthful face, Dr. Nathan Nachlas and his Boca Raton practice offer the minimal-downtime facelift, which can rejuvenate your face with natural-looking results.

Dr. Nachlas is a double-board-certified facial plastic surgeon. He trained at the renowned Yale-New Haven Hospital and Johns Hopkins Hospital. In addition, Dr. Nachlas earned a prestigious facial plastic surgery fellowship in Beverly Hills. During his extensive training, he learned advanced techniques in facial plastic surgery. His surgical skill is matched by the high level of personal attention he provides to each of his facial cosmetic surgery patients. It’s no wonder, then, that patients travel from West Palm Beach and Fort Lauderdale to see Dr. Nachlas.

Minimal-Downtime Facelift: Different In A Good Way


A minimal-downtime facelift, while a more limited procedure than the usual facelift, yields beautiful results.

Minimal-downtime facelift surgery addresses many of the same concerns that traditional facelift surgery does. The difference? Smaller and fewer incisions. This approach to facelift surgery is best suited for: 1) people with more moderate skin sagging and 2) those who would like a more limited procedure that still yields beautiful results.

The minimal-downtime facelift involves making short incisions. These incisions are made in front of and occasionally behind your ears. Don’t worry: They should not disrupt the hairline. Next, underlying facial tissue is repositioned and muscles are tightened, creating a more youthful foundation for your skin. Then, excess sagging or lax skin is removed. Finally, the skin is repositioned and held in place with tiny sutures. The result is firmer, lifted cheeks, smoother skin, and a sculpted, youthful-looking jaw line.

Dr. Nachlas performs minimal-downtime facelift surgery as an outpatient procedure, using general anesthesia for optimal patient comfort. The surgery typically takes 1 to 1.5 hours. The exception is if it is being performed in conjunction with other procedures such as eyelid surgery or nose surgery. Many patients find their minimal-downtime facelift results can be enhanced with injectable fillers. Dr. Nachlas’ practice in Boca Raton offers these as well.

Minimal-Downtime Facelift:   Recovery and Results

Dr. Nachlas will bandage your face overnight; minimal swelling is typical. He will make sure that you have prescription pain medication in case you need it to manage your discomfort. Over several weeks, Dr. Nachlas will monitor your recovery closely, and will let you know as soon as you can resume normal activities. Most patients typically return to work within 1 week.
