As people grow older, the natural aging process, genetic
influences, exposure to the sun, smoking and other factors
cause the skin to wrinkle and sag. In the younger individual, the
face is firm and smooth due to fatty tissue directly beneath the skin. The tissue
that fills out the contours of the face gives it an even, rounded
appearance. As an individual age the skin begins to sag and to fit
more prominent, particularly around the chin, on the jaw line and on
the neck. In recent years, a remarkable procedure,
facelift, has been developed to
correct these conditions and give people the youthful appearance
they desire. Often this procedure is done in conjunction with other
facial cosmetic procedures such as lipo-suction,
browlift, blepharoplasty (eyelid
surgery), chin augmentation.
How is rhytidectomy performed ? The basic
facelift is a procedure in which
facial and neck skin and muscles are tightened. The surgery can be
performed under general anesthesia in which the patient is put to
sleep or local anesthesia in which the area is numbed and the
patient remains awake.
The surgeon, working on one side at a time, make small incisions
inside the hairline at the temple, around the front of the ear to
behind the earlobe and up to the scalp.Loose skin is separated from
underlying tissue and is pulled up and back, and excess skin is
removed. Connective tissue and sagging muscles are tightened, and in
some cases, fat deposits are removed from beneath the chin and neck.
Tiny sutures are used to close the incisions. Scars from the sutures
are, for the most part, inconspicuous, because the incisions are
hidden within the hairline and the natural creases around the ears.
After sugery, loose bandages are applied to the area. These are
removed within a few days.
What can be expected following surgery ? Rhytidectomy has
been improved over the past few decades and is considered a very
safe as well as successful procedure with relatively few risks
involved. Pain is controlled by medication, and skin discoloration,
which usually. A tightness or numbness of the treated area may also
be present for a while.
What kind of improvement can be expected ? It has been
said that a face lift can make
an individual look five, even ten years
younger, however the amount of improvement varies and
depends upon the initial condition of the patient and the extent of
surgery. In most cases, a single procedure will achieve the desired
results while in others, additional procedures may be indicated.
Most patients who have had a facelift have been delighted with their
more attractive, younger appearance.
Botox injection When we frown, smile or laugh we contract muscles
in our face into folds of skin that form dynamic wrinkles and lines
such as ¡°crows feet¡±, forehead lines or ¡°worry lines¡±. Over
time, these dynamic wrinkles and lines become deeper and more
A simple treatment with BOTOX can dramatically soften facial
expression lines leaving you looking younger and more refreshed. If
dynamic wrinkles make you look older than you are, now there is a
way to erase these lines without surgery, scars and recovery time.
BOTOX blocks impulses from the nerve to the tiny facial muscles that
are related to expression lines. This relaxes the muscles to stop
them contracting, leaving the overlying skin smooth and unwrinkled.
BOTOX works only on the specific muscles injected leaving
surrounding muscles to function as usual, producing normal facial
expression without the wrinkles. You can resume normal activities
immediately. Treatment takes around 15 minutes, depending on the
number of areas you wish to treat.
Repeated treatments can extend the effect up to one year. The effect
of Botulinum Toxin can be enhanced by combining this preparation
with other wrinkle-removing methods (such as chemical or laser
- Before the procedure, the patient does not need to undergo any
test, so that he / she can be treated instantly. - Following the
treatment the client does not need to absent from work and after
four hours he / she can perform all common daily activities.

with this method and will continue with this method and will
continue with Botulinum Toxin applications.

Your face provides the world with a lasting impression of who
you are and how you feel. But, it doesn't have to tell your age.
For many of our patients, the "wind-tunnel" look caused by overly
taut skin following a facelift is no longer acceptable. They desire
a more "natural looking" rejuvenation. Busy patients demand more
immediate results with little if any down time, smaller incision, no
visible scars and no potential for hair loss.
The S-Lift is a mini-facelift that provides an overall lift to
your neck and the lower third of your face. Compared to a
traditional facelift, it is a quicker operation with fewer
complications and a much faster recovery. The S-Lift is particularly
well suited for middle-aged and younger patients and can make a
dramatic change in the way you look by tightening sagging muscles
and skin of the cheeks, chin and neck.
An S-Lift is performed using tumescent local anesthesia and may
be combined with facial and neck liposuction. Results from your
S-Lift can be further enhanced with subsequent laser resurfacing to
smooth wrinkles and provide greater skin contraction.
The best candidates for an S-Lift are men and women that:
* are in good health.
* are typically between 30 to 60 years old.
* have mild to moderate lower facial and/or neck laxity.
* have realistic expectations.
* want to stay ahead of the aging process.
How will I look after surgery?
The changes following your S-Lift can be dramatic. The use of
smaller instruments and fluid to separate the skin from underlying
tissue results in an almost bloodless procedure.
After the procedure, you may go home and rest for at least 24
hours. There may be some minor bruising and swelling for a day or
two. You will wear a small bandage over the incision site for the
next two to three days. Mild pain relievers may be needed. After
that, you may take a shower and wash your hair. Men may shave their
face. Sutures will be removed after 6-7 days. Direct sun should be
avoided for several weeks. Most of our S-Life patients resume
normal activities after 4 to 5 days, some choose to return to work
Our S-Lift patients love the fact that after their S-Lift they
don't look like they had surgery. They just look great and years
An S-Lift procedure may be performed in your doctor's office or
in an outpatient surgical facility. Pre-medication is generally
recommended to relax the patient. An S-Lift is performed using a
special anesthetic solution, which is injected in the area forward
of the ears. This fluid gently lifts the skin from the underlying
Operating on one side of your face at a time, your surgeon
excises a narrow "S" shaped section of skin from the area forward of
your ear. The skin is lifted and the surgeon tightens and
repositions the underlying muscles and tissues. Excess fat is
removed. The opening is closed using fine sutures. The procedure
normally takes less than 2 hours.
What are the benefits of an S-Lift procedure?
* A natural look
* Quicker recovery time
* Minimal complication risk
* Minimal scars
* No hair loss
Are the results permanent?
Following surgery, the normal aging process resumes. Your
lifestyle choices, bone structure, skin type, sun exposure and
heredity all play a part in determining how many years can be
removed by an S-Lift and for how long. In general, younger patients
enjoy longer-lasting results.
Is an S-Lift for you?
If your excess or lax facial or neck skin is bothering you, an
