From The Medical Director

mir-joffreyThe aging face is characterized by neck laxity, otherwise known as the dreaded “turkey neck” and jowls that destroy an otherwise beautiful jawline. In the last 10 years, facial rejuvenation procedures have undergone a virtual renaissance in the battle to combat this inevitable result of aging and gravity. We used to think that in order to improve the appearance of the aging face, we had to do elaborate, lengthy, and sometimes dangerous surgical procedures under general anesthesia to achieve a good outcome. These radical facelift procedures had lengthy recovery times and often left patients with undesirable artificial appearances. In the 1980s, those kinds of results were acceptable and actually seemed mainstream in Hollywood. The “windswept” appearance was “in”.

However, in recent time, people’s expectations and the realities of their lives have led some doctors, like me, to find better ways of doing things with the aim of minimizing risk and maximizing results. The evolution of literally thousands of techniques by highly specialized doctors across the country has resulted in the procedure known as Uplift®. Uplift® utilizes the latest technology and the experience of top doctors around the country to deliver natural appearing rejuvenation of the aging face. In addition, Uplift® can be done under local anesthesia and typically takes about one hour to complete. This procedure can be further combined with various minimally invasive procedures to further improve the appearance of the eyes and even the forehead.

If you are concerned about your appearance and want to look as young you feel, I invite you to a free consultation with one of our expert Uplift® physicians. Give us a call today!
