Traditional Face Lift / Mini Face Lift / Endoscopic Face Lift / SMAS Face Lift / ThermaCool Face Lift / Non-Surgical Face Lift / Weekend Face Lift / Composite Face Lift / The Contour ThreadLift™

  • Traditional Face Lift
    The basic or traditional facelift involves incisions made at the hairline. Excess skin is removed. The skin is then gently pulled and tightened over your face. The incisions are ultimately closed with stitches.

  • The Contour ThreadLift™
    A Thread lift is an exciting nonincisional lift that has been evolving over the last four years.  Now, the Contour Threads have obtained FDA approval of their safety and efficacy (proof that they work).  This is the only FDA approved barbed suture.
  • Mini-Face Lift
    The Mini face lift works well if you are in your late 30s or early 40s. A small incision is made in front of the ear, then, a small area of skin is lifted.This technique works well for targeting areas in your face that are showing early signs of aging.
  • Endoscopic Face Lift
    An endoscope is a telescope instrument. There is a window that allows doctors to see and accomplish facial cosmetic surgery procedures. The fiber optics send images to a TV monitor which the doctor looks at as he/she tightens the sagging area and rearranges the fat tissue.

    The incisions for an Endoscopic facelift are smaller and consequently heal faster with less chance of scarring. There are two ways of approaching an endoscopic facelift:

    In a Superficial the skin is elevated by incisions at the hairline. The skin is then pulled and pleated, which means folded at the incisions. The pleats disappear above the hairline and behind the ear over several weeks. No tissue is removed after the incisions as with a mini lift.

    A Deep lift involves freeing the original attachment of the skin and reattaching the skin in a more toned state to the facial bones. Tissue and muscle are secured higher and in a pulled back position.

  • SMAS Face Lift
    Superficial Musculoaponeurotic System (SMAS) is the structure of cartilage, bone, connective tissue, muscles, and nerves on your face. In this procedure sagging tissue is connected to the underlying facial bones giving a more firm and youthful appearance.
  • ThermaCool Face Lift / Non-Surgical Face Lift
    ThermaCool is a face lift procedure that uses radiofrequency energy to heat the underlying tissue below the skin while keeping the skin surface cool. This process tightens the existing collagen and stimulates new collagen growth. A local anesthetic cream will be used to numb the treatment area for one hour before your procedure. The time this procedure normally takes ranges between 30 minutes and one hour depending on the area that is being treated. While the procedure should not hurt, you may experience a sensation of heat in the treated areas. There are no restrictions in activity following the ThermaCool face lift.
  • Weekend Face Lift
    In a weekend face lift, a small incision is made beneath the chin, excess fatty deposits are suctioned from the neck, and then the inside of the skin is lasered with a CO2 laser to cause the skin to contract. The muscle in the neck can be tightened, if necessary, through the same incision, and a chin implant placed at the same time. The procedure is performed with local anesthesia only.
  • Composite Face Lift
    A composite face lift consists separating the muscle around the eye from its attachment to the cheek bone through an incision in the lower eyelid. It can then be lifted and sutured into place. At the same time, the arcus marginal muscle is released (AMR) and repositioned to cover the orbital bone. There is more swelling with the composite lift than with more superficial lifts.
