the minimal incision facelift

BENEFITS A refreshed, healthy look works wonders for a rejuvenated you. Today’s connected world makes it difficult to hide out for weeks after a facelift. Additionally, many do not want the long incisions and lengthy recovery period that accompanies a more traditional lift. The Minimal Incision Facelift delivers a revitalized look with smaller incisions and a reasonable recovery. You also have the benefit of local anesthesia performed in our out-patient suite as opposed to a stay at the hospital.

DESCRIPTION

The concept of lifting is normally associated with long incisions around the ears and a series of incisions hidden within the hairline. The Minimal Incision Facelift is a less comprehensive lift that concentrates on correcting the most common and visible defects of the aging face. Minimal, in this context then, refers to a modern, selectively targeted approach. The incisions are typically along the front of the ear and are significantly smaller than a traditional lift. Special instruments are inserted and used to pull back tissue from a wider area than what is typical with long incisions.

RISKS

All surgical procedures carry risk. Anyone undergoing surgery must understand that even though the odds of a major event are small, risks from surgery are real. Whenever the skin is broken, there is the possibility of infection, necrosis, swelling, bruising, scarring, discoloration, nerve damage, itching, hematoma, pain, etc. Our goal is safety. We use a local anesthetic to decrease the risks associated with general anesthesia. We have you back for several post-op visits to monitor your healing. We are open 7 days each week and are accessible via email. We work together to reduce risk.

FACELIFT BEFORE AND AFTER PICTURES

no scars at all behind the ears!

50 year old female patient before and 1 days after a Short Scar Chicago face lift (no scars at all behind the ears!) Notice the puckering in the red outlined circle 1 day after surgery. This will rapidly diminish once the patient starts massaging two weeks after surgery. It is usually gone by one month but sometimes it takes up to three months to completely go away. This procedure took 30 minutes in the office under local anesthesia.

facelift

A 65 year old male patient before and 6 months after a direct necklift done in the office under local anesthesia which took only 20 minutes. Even though he was a candidate to get other procedures such as a facelift, cosmetic eyelid surgery, as well as injectables, the only thing that bothered him with his neck and he was willing to tolerate a small T scar. This is a very gratifying operation especially for men who can hide the scar in their beard. His retruded chin was also elevated (pushed upwards) with the procedure to look more normal and even his jowls were improved.

facelift

Same patient - notice the scars blending in without the use of any makeup or concealer. The hardest part to this operation is the initial postoperative period and looking at the red thick scar but as with all scars, it usually softens within 6-12 months to become a soft white line in most patients.
