Changes offers the unique Changes Rapid Lift to meet the modern demands of the discriminating patient who needs a rapid recovery. This facelift procedure was developed by Dr. Gilbert Lee specifically for patients with mild to moderate aging in the face. As a favorite alternative to a traditional facelift, the Changes Rapid Lift costs less and has a faster recovery time than the traditional facelift with equal results. This is possible because of a minimal number of incisions and the procedure being performed under local anesthesia in the office, eliminating expensive operating room and anesthesiologist fees.
The Changes Rapid Lift, performed by both Dr. Brian Reagan and Dr. Gilbert Lee, specifically treats loose skin and wrinkles in the lower half of the face as well as tightens the jaw line and neck profile, all of which are areas where aging first occurs. These wrinkles are caused by skin and muscle stretching and loss of fat underneath the skin as you age. To correct this, your surgeon will re-suspend and support the facial and neck fat and muscles back to their original position, then removes excess skin to tighten and remove wrinkles.
In addition, your surgeon will also tighten the neck and jaw, removing the loose skin that naturally occurs over time. Jowls just seem to disappear, and a youthful neck line is restored. Some patients may benefit from the addition of a corset platysmaplasty to further improve the appearance of the neck. The Rapid Lift restores fullness to the cheeks as well. The result- a young and vivacious face is rediscovered. This procedure that takes years off of your appearance at a fraction of the cost and recovery time.
You should be up and about in a day or two, but plan on taking it easy for the first week after surgery. Some bruising may persist for two or three weeks, but during your follow-up visits, your surgeon will monitor your progress. After two weeks, you’ll look and feel much better. Most patients are back at work about ten days to two weeks after surgery. Makeup can be applied after approximately 10 days.
