NEW STYLE LIFT

With the modern way of life, time is constricted while at the same time everyone’s economic state is being deteriorated. The new style lift has the potential to overcome these difficulties to a great extent. It offers immediate results in a shorter period of time as it allows the person to return to work as usual in a matter of days without bruises a break from work which is needed in a standard lifting. The dream of a much younger face is becoming a reality with a safer and more economical approach in comparison to the traditional techniques for facelifting, neckline and eyeline.

How safe is the new style life procedure?
It is an extremely safe procedure and safer than the traditional lifting as the danger of general anesthesia is done away with. It is in the opposite side of the spectrum compared to extreme face plastic surgeries where the patient is in a dangerous spot  while under general anesthesia and often do not look like themselves for a period of months or even years.

The surgical procedure of a new style lift
The procedure of a new style lift differs of that of a traditional face lifting. A small incision is performed inside the ear where the skin is uplifted and simultaneously tightened, the jaw line is reset and the desired result is to tighten the neck and transform the face so as to look 10 to 20 years younger. It is a surgery which takes place in a comfortable and specially equipped operating room.

With this specific technique the deeper muscular tissue or the SMAS tissue is pulled up or down (potentially cut) and repositioned to its initial position. The lessened skin is then cut and the incision is closed. Moreover the neck muscles might be stiched together. This technique has the ability to be combined with surgical procedures on the eyelids, uplifting of eyebrows, CO2 laser, fat transplant, liposuction with the aim of reducing the fat under the skin area and raising it.

Advantages of the new style lift
The procedure of the new style lift is adjusted to every individual separately achieving the desired change in th skin age, the eyes and the neck area. At the same time it highlights the result of a more natural and refreshing look. Instead of a traditional full face-lift which is performed with general anesthesia and lasts for about 4 hours with a long recovery period which confines the person for weeks, the new style lift lasts for about 1:30 hours, it is done with local anesthesia and at the same time it allows a speedy recovery. Within a few days the patient is able to return to their daily routine.

Is it a painful procedure?
The specific procedure does not cause pain, only a little sting so as to numb the face.

What are the complications it presents?
One of the most important factors for choosing the new style lift is the extremely low rate of complications. With the use of local anesthesia  and a less intervening technique of refreshing  the face  with experienced medical hands, excellent results are offered with fewer chances of complications compared to traditional procedures. It is good for the new style lift candidate to inform the surgeon of how many times they have performed the specific procedure in the past 6 months.
