RevaLift is a new concept developed by Dr. Carey Nease 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 face lift but not as comprehensive as a full cosmetic face lift.
RevaLift differs from a cosmetic face lift 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 face lift) 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 hair line, 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 face lift.
RevaLift is individually tailored for each patient. The result is natural-looking because excess skin is lifted up, not back. Most patients can expect to look 5-10 years younger.
Is RevaLift right for you? Your face is the most visible part of your body – your first impression to most people. That’s why we offer three different levels of facial revitalization here at Southern Surgical Arts – laser lift, RevaLift and full cosmetic face lift.
It can be difficult to decide on your own which procedure will best address your aesthetic goals. A consultation with one of our surgeons is one of the best ways to help define your goals and explore your treatment options and likely outcomes.Dr. Vincent Gardner, and Dr. Carey Nease are fellowship trained, hold multiple board certifications, and have performed more than 9,000 cosmetic and facial plastic procedures. Take a look at our before and after gallery to see how they can help you achieve similar results.
Depending on the recommendations from our surgeons to meet your desired goals, costs can vary. The price of RevaLift starts at $6,500. That’s more than a laser lift but less than a full lift, in keeping with the scope of the RevaLift procedure. Price quotes include the surgeon's fee, anesthesia costs, facility fee for the operating room, and all supplies. Our total price also includes all routine follow-up visits following your procedure.
