For the Patient Not Ready for a Cosmetic Facelift!
RevaLift is a new concept developed here at Southern Surgical Arts. It is designed to provide mid-range facial rejuvenation for women and men who want to combat signs of aging. Results are more extensive than a laser facelift but not as comprehensive as a full cosmetic facelift.
RevaLift differs from a cosmetic facelift in several ways. It focuses on revitalizing the lower face, targeting the upper neck and jowl. It does not address the eyes or brow or the lower neck. The procedure is recommended for adults who have developed mild to moderate jowls or excess skin on the upper neck, and perhaps some deep laugh lines around their mouth.
RevaLift is a surgical procedure that typically takes about an hour and a half. It is performed using local anesthetic and IV sedation. First, the surgeon uses a laser to melt fat under the skin and heat the skin. This allows for shorter incisions, helps the skin tighten as it heals, and reduces downtime. The surgeon then makes incisions (about half the length of those needed for a cosmetic facelift) and removes excess skin. Before closing, deep stitches are put into the muscles in front of the ears, which enables results to last longer.
Because the incisions are so much smaller, scars are smaller. They are well-hidden along the hairline, in the ear and part way up the backside of the ear. Following surgery, most patients will experience only modest swelling or bruising. Total downtime is 7-10 days, compared to two to three weeks for a cosmetic facelift.
RevaLift is individually-tailored for each patient. The result is natural-looking because the excess skin is lifted up, not back. Most patients can expect to look 5-10 years younger!
