Rejuvelift™ Facelift Alternative
The expertise of Staten Island plastic surgeon Dr. Louis Cutolo, Jr. enabled him to develop an alternative facelift technique called Rejuvelift™.

Rejuvelift is a good option for the vast majority of patients considering facelift surgery. Learn more about the technique from Dr. Cutolo by requesting a complimentary consultation using the online form, or call our office at (718) 720-9400.

Rejuvelift vs. Traditional Facelift
Dr. Cutolo developed the Rejuvelift technique to provide people who are looking for a less-invasive facelift alternative with a procedure that addressed their aesthetic concerns without requiring such a lengthy recovery. The benefits of choosing Rejuvelift:
- Local anesthesia — Dr. Cutolo uses local anesthesia and oral sedation instead of general anesthesia that’s common with a traditional facelift. This leads to quicker post-op recovery.
- In-office procedure — Because it doesn’t involve general anesthesia, Rejuvelift can be performed at Dr. Cutolo’s Staten Island office instead of a hospital.
- Minimal downtime — Most Rejuvelift patients can return to work or other normal activities within a week to 10 days.
- Excellent results — Minimal downtime doesn’t mean minimal results. A Rejuvelift creates a more defined jawline and results in smoother, more youthful skin in the lower face.
In certain cases, a traditional facelift may still be the best option. Dr. Cutolo recommends what he believes is the best approach for you following a personal consultation.
Who Is a Good Candidate for a Minimally Invasive Facelift?
Good candidates for Rejuvelift are people who are in good physical and mental health. The Rejuvelift procedure focuses on the lower third of the face, making it especially popular with people who wish to correct sagging jowls, wrinkles, and excess skin around the chin and neck while improving the jawline.
To maximize their results, some patients choose to combine a Rejuvelift procedure in conjunction with non-surgical options such as BOTOX® Cosmetic, dermal fillers, or fat injections. Because Rejuvelift focuses on the lower third of the face, these other procedures can help enhance areas of the upper two-thirds of the face that may only need small corrections.
Dr. Cutolo uses the state-of-the-art VECTRA® 3D imaging system during consultations to help patients envision the results of their face procedures.

Your Rejuvelift Procedure
Dr. Cutolo performs Rejuvelift as an outpatient procedure at his Staten Island office. Unlike a traditional facelift, Rejuvelift doesn’t require general anesthesia. Local anesthesia and oral sedation are typically used to maintain patient comfort.
During the procedure, Dr. Cutolo removes excess skin and fat in the lower face, smoothing lines and tightening the jawline. Most Rejuvelift procedures last between 1½ and 2 hours.
Because general anesthesia isn’t administered, patients are able to return home as soon as the procedure is completed.
Because Rejuvelift is less involved than a traditional facelift, Brooklyn, Queens, New York City, and Staten Island patients find that the recovery is a bit easier. For most patients, the recovery process takes about 10 days, at which time they are able to return to most of their normal activities.
Patients are scheduled for a follow-up appointment the next day and then 1 week later for suture removal.
Rejuvelift Results and Benefits
Patients who have undergone Rejuvelift procedures often remark that they feel their faces finally match how they feel inside — an invaluable benefit of any cosmetic procedure. Though no facelift can halt the aging process, the results of a Rejuvelift procedure can be enjoyed for years, and you’ll continue to “beat the clock” as you age.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is the cost of a Rejuvelift procedure?
The price of any cosmetic surgery procedure varies from patient to patient and is based on several factors. Those include the specific needs of the patient and the extent of the surgery.
Rejuvelift costs less than traditional facelift, in part because the procedure uses a local anesthetic with sedation, instead of general anesthesia. We will quote a specific price for your procedure after the consultation.
Can I combine Rejuvelift with other procedures?
Yes. Because signs of aging typically occur in all areas of the face, they may be more pronounced in certain areas, such as the neck and jawline. Fine lines, wrinkles around the eyes, and lost volume in the midface can be addressed either surgically or nonsurgically as a complement to your Rejuvelift procedure.
For example, BOTOX and dermal filler injections can enhance the surgical rejuvenation offered by Rejuvelift in the lower third of the face. Or you may elect to combine eyelid surgery with Rejuvelift. Dr. Cutolo creates a specific treatment plan based on your consultation.
