Facelift, Rhinoplasty, BOTOX® Cosmetic Treatment, and More in New Jersey
We provide a comprehensive selection of both surgical and noninvasive treatments to enhance the appearance of the face. Facelift, rhinoplasty, and BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments at our New Jersey practice are offered along with a full range of other cosmetic facial procedures and rejuvenating spa treatments.
Over time, facial skin can lose its youthful tightness and elasticity, causing skin to sag. This can create unwanted bags, jowls, and wrinkles that can make you look older than you feel. Gravity, exposure to the sun, and daily stress can compound these effects, also causing the appearance of premature or accelerated aging. Fortunately, Dr. Rauscher can perform facelift surgery at his New Jersey practice to reverse signs of facial aging. By removing excess fat, tightening facial muscles, and readjusting the facial skin to its youthful position, Dr. Rauscher can help you to look beautifully refreshed. Facelift at our New Jersey practice is a highly individualized procedure that Dr. Rauscher will tailor to your unique bone structure, skin texture, and underlying musculature.
During facelift surgery, the facial skin is separated from the underlying structures and deposits of excess fat. The fat is selectively removed in order to enhance the contours of the face. Dr. Rauscher then tightens the facial muscles to ensure lasting results and draws the skin back to its ideal position. Excess skin is removed along the incision to allow for a smooth closure. During the closing process, Dr. Rauscher uses special tissue adhesives called tissue glue or platelet gel to accelerate facial healing. These adhesives allow the patient to return to daily activities sooner and with less bruising.
Enhance Facelift Results with Complementary Procedures
To enhance the improvements achieved through facelift surgery, other procedures like neck lift, brow lift (forehead lift), or eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) may be performed. Facelifts do not improve skin texture; however, skin treatments such as facial peels and dermabrasion can be performed to refine the appearance of the skin. Contact us today for more information about facelift in the New Jersey area.
BOTOX® Cosmetic injections, offered at Dr. Rauscher’s New Jersey practice, are a non-surgical method of temporarily reducing the appearance of facial lines, deep creases, and wrinkles. BOTOX® Cosmetic at our New Jersey office is administered with a small needle to problem areas, relaxing the muscles below to cause wrinkles to disappear. Because the needle used is so small, no scars or marks are left at the injection site. It is recommended that BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment be repeated about every four months to maintain the effects. Contact us today for more information about BOTOX® Cosmetic therapy in New Jersey.
Facial wrinkles and folds can be temporarily corrected through Restylane® injections administered at our New Jersey office. Treatment with Restylane® restores volume beneath facial creases to diminish their severity, effectively reversing visible signs of aging with compounds that are found naturally in the body. Restylane® can also be used for lip augmentation to give patients fuller lips and reduce wrinkles around the lip border. Results of Restylane® treatment are extremely natural-looking and last longer than those of traditional collagen injections. Patients may not require a touch-up treatment for up to six months. Contact us today for more information about using Restylane® to restore depleted facial volume.
Used to correct deep facial lines and wrinkles, Sculptra® is a recent FDA-approved injectable filler. It is also used to correct lipoatrophy or facial fat loss – commonly occurring as people age as well as in patients with HIV. Sculptra® works by restoring volume and increasing thickness in the skin, resulting in a healthy, more vibrant appearance. Made of a biodegradable material, Sculptra® may take several treatments before results are noticeable. Contact our practice today for more information.
Juvederm is a family of injectable hyaluronic acid dermal fillers used to provide 9 months to one year of correction for moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (lines from the nose to the corners of the mouth). It is not indicated for use in lip augmentation.
Juvederm products are a smooth consistency gel, compared to some hyaluronic gel products that have a granular consistency. Juvederm products are developed using the Hylacross technology to allow a smoother, malleable gel. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar found in the body. Hyaluronic acid works by holding in water at the injection site and acting as a cushioning agent. It adds temporary volume and a smoother appearance to skin. Most patients need one treatment to achieve optimal results.
Some Juvederm XC products also contain the local anesthetic lidocaine for a more comfortable injection. Juvederm Ultra XC and Juvederm Ultra Plus XC both contain 0.3% preservative-free lidocaine and numb the treatment area within seconds. The Juvederm Ultra Plus products contain more highly cross-linked formulations for volumizing and correction of deeper folds and wrinkles.
Surgery to reshape the nose is a common cosmetic procedure that can have profound effects on a person’s appearance and self-confidence. Rhinoplasty performed at Dr. Rauscher’s New Jersey practice can alter almost any characteristic of the nose to give it a more aesthetically pleasing appearance.
After discussing surgical goals with Dr. Rauscher, he will perform a thorough evaluation of the nose and develop a plan for surgically enhancing its appearance. During rhinoplasty surgery at our New Jersey practice, Dr. Rauscher will use a number of different techniques to sculpt the underlying bone and cartilage framework of the nose to produce the desired shape and size. While performing rhinoplasty, Dr. Rauscher can also straighten a deviated septum to improve impaired breathing.
After rhinoplasty, the new nose will be in good proportion to the rest of the face, creating a more balanced, harmonious facial appearance. Results of rhinoplasty at Dr. Rauscher’s New Jersey practice are outstanding; patients are generally very satisfied with their results and often experience improved self-confidence in their appearance.

Bright, youthful eyes are essential to maintaining a vibrant appearance. By removing excess skin and fatty deposits from the upper and lower eyelids through eyelid surgery, also called blepharoplasty, sagging upper eyelids and under eye bags can be dramatically reduced. Eyelid surgery reverses years of aging, giving your eyes a naturally alert, refreshed appearance.
Dr. Rauscher begins the procedure by making incisions along the natural creases of the upper lid or directly below the lower eyelash-line. The skin is separated from the underlying tissue, and the excess fat, skin, and muscle responsible for sagging and puffiness are removed. In some cases, Dr. Rauscher may opt to perform transconjunctival blepharoplasty, which requires several small incisions along the lower lash-line to remove pockets of fat, but no skin. This procedure is ideal for patients with less pronounced bags under the eyes and leaves no visible scar. Contact us today in Hackensack, New Jersey for more information about revitalizing the appearance of your eyes with blepharoplasty.
Browlift surgery lifts and revitalizes the upper eye and forehead area, eliminating deep brow creases and frown lines that can create a sad or angry appearance. Browlift can be performed using traditional methods or endoscopically to reduce the size and appearance of the initial incisions. In either method, the muscle tissue between the eyebrows is thinned to relax furrows and eliminate thickness. The forehead skin is then lifted, excess is trimmed, and the incisions are closed. Browlift can be successfully combined with facelift to enhance the results and accomplish more comprehensive facial rejuvenation. Contact us today in New Jersey for more information about how browlift can help to restore your youthful appearance.
Endoscopic mid-facelift is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure ideal for patients who would like to improve the appearance of drooping cheeks, folds between the nose and mouth, and laxity along the outer corners of the eyes. Using small incisions hidden in the hairline and special endoscopic tools, Dr. Rauscher gently lifts skin, fat, and deep connective tissue to reposition the cheeks to a more youthful position, effectively reducing deep creases and drooping in the mid-face area. Improvement can also be seen in the area below the lower eyelids in patients with a hollow appearance from displaced cheek volume. Because this procedure is performed endoscopically, recovery time is reduced when compared to a full facelift. Contact us for more information about endoscopic mid-facelift or any of the other minimally invasive surgical procedures we offer.
Neck lift can tighten loose neck skin and muscles, as well as eliminate the appearance of a “double chin.” Using lift, muscle tightening, and liposuction techniques, Dr. Rauscher can vastly improve the contours of the neck and chin. Neck lift is often performed in conjunction with facelift to enhance the results and create aesthetic harmony between the rejuvenated face and the neck. Results of neck lift are beautiful, giving the neck a youthful, more slender appearance. Contact us today for further information about neck lift.
