Incisionless Facelift & Neck Lift
For almost two decades, Plastic surgery for men and women has become a commonplace occurrence, both accepted by society and valued for its benefits. For some, the drawbacks to surgery, no matter how acceptable, are visible scars, perceived pain and length of time off work for recovery. Statistics reflect a growing trend for patients to seek non-surgical means of cosmetic improvement vs surgical. Changes Plastic Surgery & Spa eliminates these worries and now offers surgical results with the advent of Changes Incisionless & Scarless Surgery. The Scarless Facelift and Neck Lift of the future is now available at Changes.
Once again Dr. Gilbert Lee provides the genesis of change with the Changes Center for Scarless Surgery where the most sought after cosmetic improvements can be achieved without a single scalpel. At the Changes Center for Scarless Surgery, a number of modalities including the Inmode RFAL (Radio Frequency Assisted Lipolysis) system provide the platform for which most traditional plastic surgery procedures can be performed using incisionless, scarless methods. The Changes Scarless Facelift & Neck Lift is one such procedure.
What is the Changes Scarless Facelift & Necklift?
The Changes Scarless Face & Neck Lift is a highly individualized procedure that provides global improvement in the cheeks, jowls and neck. Using the InMode system and an impressive selection of anti-aging treatment modalities available at Changes such as FaceTite and Fractora, and even fat grafting, the Dr. Gilbert Lee at Changes is able to eliminate sagging skin, fine lines, deep wrinkles, poor skin quality and volume loss in one procedure without scars.
Radiofrequency Assisted Lipolysis (RFAL) is the most advanced treatment in the world for facial and body contouring with concurrent skin tightening. Since facial fat is vital to a youthful facial appearance, the Changes Scarless Facelift preserves and sculpts the fat component of the face using the FaceTite RFAL application for Scarless Skin Tightening. Radio frequency (RF) is used in MRI machines and many other medical devices and has been used safely in medicine for over 60 years. The Changes Scarless Facelift is a revolutionary procedure that uses Radio Frequency to lift and tighten simultaneously without the need for excising skin as in a traditional face and neck lift.
Remarkably, with the FaceTite application, your skin will look and feel better immediately. Over a period of three to 12 months as new collagen is formed there will be continuous improvement.
Who is a candidate?
The Changes Scarless Facelift & Neck Lift is the ideal solution for individuals who don’t want a surgical facelift and are looking for a natural approach to skin tone, texture irregularities and tightening. It is perfect for those concerned about obvious signs of surgery and who do not want or cannot afford a lengthy recovery. The procedure is indicated for healthy individuals of all skin colors, but the best candidates are those who have mild to moderate skin laxity, submental (neck) fat and mild to significant formation of jowls . In extreme cases of skin sagging, Dr. Lee may recommend a traditional facelift aand neck lift surgery to eliminate excess skin and a corset platysmaplasty to tighten the muscles of the neck.
How is the Changes Incisionless & Scarless Facelift & Neck Lift performed?
The Changes Scarless Facelift & Neck Lift is performed under local anesthesia. You will be asked to arrive one hour prior for pre medication. Because you will be sedated during the procedure, you will need someone to drive you to and from your incisionless procedure.
The length of your procedure will depend on the components of your scarless facelift and may take 1-3 hours to perform. The Changes Scarless Facelift is a painless procedure, with minimal downtime. For patients who require fat grafting as part of the incisionless procedure, swelling is more significant and may last several weeks. Otherwise, you can expect 5 to 7 days of swelling with limited, and in some cases, no bruising. There are no incisions, so there is no need for suture removal.
EmbraceRF (Embrace) combines two powerful and clinically proven technologies to provide a dramatic improvement to skin laxity of the face and neck. Embrace utilizes the InMode FaceTite system and Fractora. The minimally invasive radiofrequency energy of FaceTite treats underlying fat and contracts skin, while the bipolar RF energy delivered through Fractora improves textural concerns. Embrace addresses loose skin in the neck and jowls and can be used in combination with liposuction depending on how much fat is in the area.
Who is a candidate?
EmbraceRF is the perfect answer for patients who are not ready for a facelift but want optimal outcomes. Embrace provides quick, surgical results for the patient who wants high quality facial contouring with no surgery. The ideal candidate is generally in their early to late 40’s to early 50’s with good skin elasticity and no banding of the neck muscles.
Step into the future of aging, where facelifts are painless, scarless and incisionless.
