Nobody wants to have surgery if they can avoid it. But then again, sometimes those stubborn fat deposits around your face and neck just won’t budge, even after weight loss. Before, this would have meant a difficult choice, but not anymore. With modern technology, you can get the results of a facelift without the downtime, discomfort, or risks of surgery. If you are in the Youngstown, Ohio, or Akron, Ohio, area call Dr. Gentile at the office of Gentile Plastic Surgery and Aesthetic Laser Center or make an appointment online to find out if this is an option for you.
Basically, they’re exactly what they sound like. Modern technology has led to several techniques that you can use to get the results of a facelift without the downtime, large incisions, or risks associated with surgery. These procedures usually involve the help of a laser and are often more effective than injection treatments.
Facelifts can solve a variety of the most common signs of aging, including:
Any of these could be solved with a facelift, but depending on your exact situation, you may be a candidate for a non-surgical facelift.
Some of the main reasons people choose a non-surgical option include the long-lasting results, quick recovery period, and lower costs when compared to traditional facelifts. Since they don’t require general anesthetic, they don’t carry the risks associated with many surgeries, and they often produce the desired results in as little as a few months.
There are many paths to take for a non-surgical facelift, so it’s best to talk to Dr. Gentile about which one is right for you. One of the most common techniques is called SmartLifting, a procedure pioneered by Dr. Gentile himself.
Smartlifting is a minimally-invasive procedure using SmartLipo, a specialized laser that can be used to tighten your skin and melt away pockets of fat so that they can be easily removed with a liposuction needle. With only a small wand inserted in a tiny incision, this procedure can be just as effective as a traditional facelift in many people.
Before this laser assistance technology existed, most plastic surgeons were hesitant to perform a necklift without performing a facelift as well. But these lasers have changed that. The SmartLipo laser allows the precision needed to conduct a necklift on its own if that’s where your problem areas are.
If you are in the Youngstown, Ohio, area and are interested in a non-surgical alternative to a facelift, call the office or set up an appointment online.
