The New Facelift: Smartlifting™

Smartlifting is a new procedure in facial rejuvenation - a more gentle technique than traditional facelifts, there are fewer side effects and a quicker recovery. And because the surgery typically takes just over an hour and can be done with local anesthesia or mild sedation. Costs can be much less than conventional face lift procedures.

Is Smartlifting facelift procedure Right for You?

Below, you can see a sample of what’s possible with the revolutionary new Smartlifting procedure.

SMARTlifting Treatment procedure

Smartlifting has a unique ability to add volume to the cheek area and the "submalar" region below the cheeks. These enhancements return the face to the "heart shaped' face of youth and eliminate the elongation of the face that occurs during facial aging.

SMARTlifting  facelift

Many patients dislike the "turkey neck" they acquire with facial aging. Smartlifting directly addresses this with a minimal access incision that permit the neck muscle or platysma to be elevated directly up and not sideways as in other facelifts. The vertical vector facelifts give a more youthful contour to the jawline and neck.

How long the procedure takes

Smartlifting the face involves two primary procedures: the LaserSmartLift and the UltraMiniLift. These procedures typically take from 30 to 90 minutes, and may take longer, depending on the addition of other procedures. Smartlifting of the neck or forehead can take between 30 and 45 minutes.

What to Expect from SMARTlifting

The most common problems treated are hanging jowls and sagging necks (turkey neck) but Smartlifting can also help with the folds along side the nose (the nasal labial folds) and severe banding in the neck or fatty tissue under the chin (double chin). Sagging eyebrows can also be helped with Smartlifting.

The results are long lasting, beneficial for five to 10 years.

Additional facial enhancements

In some patients the benefits of fat grafting or wrinkle fillers can be recommended especially if they have sunken depressions under their eyes. Botox injections may also be recommended to soften crows’ feet.

SMARTlifting Recovery Time

Patients vary in their recovery. Some patients return to work after three to four days, although it is typically
recommended for a relaxed recovery for up to a week. If this patient has other procedures done concurrently, the recovery
may take longer.

Smartlifting™ Facelift

Smartlifting is a proprietary procedure developed by Dr. Gentile in 2007. It utilizes the FDA approved Smartlipo™ Laser to elevate and separate the skin from the deeper tissues of the face.  This unique laser assisted facelift reduces operating time and makes it easier for the surgeon to lift the second layer or SMAS layer of the face.

Smartlifting has been widely featured and favorably reviewed in Network News, Women's Magazines, National and International Plastic Surgery Meetings, and Internet Blogs


Fractional Laser Skin Rejuvenation

The fractional resurfacing wave was started by Fraxel™ an innovative laser that leaves portions of the facial skin  untouched.  This lead to faster healing and less down time.  The newest fractionated lasers utilize the CO2 laser which is the gold standard for skin rejuvenation and wrinkle reduction.
