Smiling, laughing, frowning. We all do them. Over time, these repetitive actions can cause deep wrinkles throughout the face and neck, making a person look older than they are. Gravity causes the skin to sag downward which gives you a tired, sad, or angry appearance; even when you are perfectly content. While facial aging is not a life threatening problem, it can cause low self-esteem and depression. If any of this applies to you, then maybe a mini face lift with Safelift technology is for you.
The mini face lift is is ideal for those with early facial aging that have little tolerance for the long recovery times associated with a traditional face lift. Incisions are made around and behind the ear, and the skin is lifted and pulled to improve cheek, jawline, turkey neck and nasolabial folds. This minimally invasive procedure is safer than traditional face lifts because it uses local anesthesia and a mild sedative rather than a systemic anesthesia. The SafeLift procedure tightens connective tissue under the skin, making it last longer than other mini-lifts.After the surgery, swelling and bruising may persist 1-2 weeks; it is during this period that the stitching is removed. Many patients will be able to return to work within days of completing treatment, making it ideal for the busy professional.
