Why choose Dr. Strazar for a facelift?
When choosing a facelift surgeon, it is important to choose someone that explains the process and makes you feel comfortable. Facelift surgery is generally safe if it is completed by an experienced surgeon. Dr. Strazar has trained with some of the foremost facelift surgeons in New York City. He will inspect the desired areas in which you’d like to have refreshed and create a customized surgical plan for you to achieve your refreshed look.
How long will the scars remain after a facelift?
A traditional facelift requires an incision from the temple to the lower hairline, but the scars will be well concealed within the hairline and natural creases on the face. The scars heal well and should be unnoticeable once fully healed.
When can I return to normal activity after a facelift?
Most patients can return to their normal routine after one to two weeks. This will vary depending on the type of facelift procedure you have performed and your unique rate of healing. If facial fat grafting is performed, swelling may continue for a little bit longer than facelift surgery without fat transfer. You should also avoid strenuous activity and exercise (jogging, biking, many types of sports) for at least a month.
When will I see results from my facelift?
The majority of the benefits will be visible after a few months; however, some minor swelling and inflammation may persist for some time after. While this process may require some patience, the outcome should be noticeable without being conspicuous. Furthermore, the enhancement should last many years as long as you take excellent care of your skin.
Will I have scars after a Mastopexy (Breast Lift)?
Most women are so thrilled with the results of their procedure that they don’t mind the typically subtle appearance of the healed scars. However, it is normal for patients to be curious about what the incisions will look like after recovery. What is important to understand about the breast lift procedure is that it will involve incisions on the breast. There is no other way to effectively lift and tighten breast tissues without incisions. While it is impossible to completely eliminate any sign of surgery, these marks should fade over time and become relatively unnoticeable. These incisions are designed to be concealed under clothing, and the good news is that over time and with proper scar care, they do fade and become barely noticeable. Most women find that their new shape and beautiful figure outweigh any concerns they initially had about scarring. Dr. Strazar takes great care to make the incisions as small and inconspicuous as possible.
Will Breast implants interfere with Mammograms?
Breast implants may partly obscure mammograms, but special techniques can be used to improve the visibility of breast tissue after breast augmentation. It’s important to work with a screening center that is familiar with breast implants. Studies show that there is no clinically significant impact of breast augmentation on breast cancer detection or breast cancer treatment.
Are there natural ways to enhance breasts?
While you may see promotions for creams that increase breast size, these don’t work. One method which uses your natural tissue and does not involve breast implants is a fat transfer breast augmentation. This procedure cannot greatly increase breast size and is appropriate for patients who want a moderate increase in breast size.

I had a breast reduction with him a few months ago and I couldn’t be happier! I was really nervous because it was my first time having surgery. He did a great job listening to my concerns and was very helpful before and after the surgery. Thanks Dr. Strazar and your amazing staff!View More
Dr. Strazar is an exceptionally skilled and knowledgable doctor. I had reconstructive breast surgery that was difficult due to damage from radiation and I needed a skin graft.
To say I was amazed at his work is an understatement. He is so kind and positive with amazing energy. Thank you, Dr. StrazarView More
