Wouldn’t it be great if you could look young forever? Unfortunately, that’s not reality and as you get older, the early signs of aging become more and more prominent on your body. As you age, your skin begins to lose its elasticity and definition, especially around the face. When this happens the skin imperfections such as wrinkles and fine lines become more prominent, dragging down the person’s overall appearance.
To help people with poor skin elasticity reverse the signs of aging, many plastic surgeons perform FACEology Lift.
FACEology Lift: An Introduction
FACEology Lift is a cosmetic procedure that focuses on lifting sagging skin around the face and neck. Dr. Raymond Lee, a double board certified facial plastic surgeon is the mind behind the procedure.
Invasive facelift techniques deliver sustainable results, however, there are various risks such as nerve damage, prolonged swelling and recovery associated with them. Minimally invasive procedures are relatively safe, however, they fail to deliver sustainable results. The FACEology Lift was developed with the aim of combining the best of both of these worlds.
Dr. Lee used his extensive experience to combine different facelift techniques. The result is a procedure that delivers long-term results without compromising on safety.
The FACEology Lift Procedure
While undergoing FACEology Lift a local anaesthetic will be used to numb the targeted area. Once the anesthesia takes effect, your doctor will make small incisions in the hairline and the natural borders of the ear.
Next, he will lift and tighten the underlying muscles of the superficial muscular aponeurotic system. Any excess skin in the area will be removed for a more even look. The result is a defined jaw and neck line.
The entire process lasts for anywhere between 1.5-2 hours. FACEology Lift is performed as an outpatient procedure, meaning you can return home soon after it is completed. In most cases, patients can leave within a few hours after the procedure and do not need to stay overnight in the hospital.
The Benefits of FACEology
- Shorter recovery time.
- Sustainable and natural results
- Safer than surgical facelift procedures.
- Once the person recovers, post-surgical marks are barely noticeable.
Traditional Facelift vs FACEology Lift
Though FACEology Lift addresses the same skin issues as traditional facelifts, it is less invasive, which reduces the risk of muscle and nerve damage. While a traditional facelift procedure takes between three to four hours, a FACEology Lift usually does not last for more than a couple of hours.
Because FACEology Lift is a minimally invasive technique, incisions are considerably smaller in size. Scars heal swiftly and are barely noticeable after some time. Surgeons performing traditional facelift surgeries may use gases, breathing tubes, and intravenous lines to help their patients avoid discomfort. Experts performing FACEology Lift, on the other hand, usually don’t use anything more than a local anesthesia and a drug for oral sedation to sedate their patients.
Ideal Candidates for FACEology
An ideal candidate for FACEology Lift is someone who:
- Is in good health
- Is experiencing signs of aging in their lower face and neck.
- Has exhausted non-surgical options.
To ensure speedy and safe recovery, patients must take at least seven days off from work. Additionally, they must avoid performing physically demanding activities for at least two weeks after the procedure.
