Exploring the Types of Facelift Surgeries Available

As we age, our skin loses its elasticity, causing wrinkles and sagging. While aging is a natural process, it doesn’t mean we have to live with the signs of aging. Facelift surgeries have become increasingly popular as they can help turn back the clock and restore a more youthful appearance. However, with so many types of facelift surgeries available, it can be overwhelming to decide which one is right for you.

Maurice M. Khosh, MD, FACS, is New York’s most renowned facelift surgeon specialist. Let’s explore the different types of facelift surgeries available from Dr. Khosh in NYC.

Deep Plane Facelift

Dr. Khosh uses a broader range of techniques in a deep plane facelift. Fat and muscle tissue is manipulated to obtain more dynamic results. There are more potential risks with this type of facelift surgery, but also more potential gain. Dr. Khosh knows how to mitigate risks without compromising the incredible benefits you can enjoy.

Midface Lift Surgery

Midface surgery addresses the highly noticeable area below the eyes and around the cheeks and nose. Dr. Khosh’s encyclopedic knowledge of facial symmetry allows him to create excellent results with these key facial features with fewer risks and less downtime than a deep plane facelift.

Mini Facelift Surgery

Dr. Khosh performs mini facelift surgery for patients who wish to make minimal improvements to enhance aesthetics and slow down the signs of aging. Mini facelift surgeries primarily address the creeping signs of aging, such as wrinkles around the midface area, but with minimal scarring and faster recovery than other forms of facelift surgery.

Non-Surgical Facelift

Dr. Khosh performs non-surgical facelifts using injectable liquids for a faster, less invasive rejuvenation option. Men and women enjoy this treatment because there is minimal downtime and less risk than with surgical options. You will be amazed by what can be accomplished with non-surgical injectables in the skilled hands of Dr. Khosh and his team.

NYC Revision Facelift

Revision facelift surgeries aren’t just for inadequate results. Previous successful facelifts can need to be redone after time passes and facial aesthetics change more. Dr. Khosh is a skilled New York facial cosmetic surgeon who offers excellent revision facelift surgery for patients who have previously had successful facelift surgery or are not pleased with a recent procedure.

SMAS Facelift

Facelift surgery at the superficial musculoaponeurotic system (SMAS) level allows Dr. Khosh to offer longer-lasting solutions to rejuvenation patients. This type of facelift should only be performed by an accomplished NYC facelift specialist like Dr. Maurice Khosh.

What Dr. Khosh's Patients Say


Based on 174 reviews

Meredith G.
Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!
Jackie C.
Great front office, really good experience after what was a terrible accident. I was made to feel comfortable. Dr. Khosh is very good at what he does. I'm still healing but I'm confident of the results
Kaitlin M.
Dr. Khosh takes exceptional care of his patients. He has operated on me twice, each time making me feel extremely comfortable and satisfied with the results. His staff is also very kind and knowledgeable.

After visiting and being evaluated by several doctors, I kept going back to Dr. Khosh. His tranquil spirit and professionalism were captivating. Thank you for a job well done and keeping me calm throughout the entire process. A special thanks to your staff Susan and Christine for all of their support as well. Hi highly recommend Dr. Khosh.
Leah G.
Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
Courtney G.
AMAZING!!!!!! I had Dr Khosh perform lipo on my chin/neck and my result is unbelievable! Better than I could have expected! I met with a couple of surgeons and the second I met with Dr Khosh I knew he was the one I was going with. He was compassionate and explained every detail of what would take place during the surgery and what to expect during recovery. I even emailed a few times during recovery with various questions and he got right back to me asap which was really comforting! I honestly fully recommend Dr Khosh, he did an amazing job and is an amazing person.

i can finally breathe!! Dr. Khosh made the entire experience a breeze, it was truly a pleasure to be under his care. I am forever thankful and highly recommend him. Not only does his work speak for himself, but he has excellent bedside manner. His kindness and patience is above and beyond. He takes the time to answer to every question you have to help you understand the process while at the same time making you feel so comfortable. From the first consultation i knew i was in good hands. I am so pleased with the result and forever thankful.
