During a complementary consultation, Dr. Lee will discuss all the advantages of non-surgical and surgical facelift procedures to help you determine the option that best meets your cosmetic goals.
Non-Surgical PDO Thread-lift
A non-surgical PDO thread-lift can restore your youthful looks in a procedure that generally takes less than 1 hour and is done in the office. It is very effective at improving deep wrinkles, skin elasticity and regeneration. It addresses the signs of aging by inserting PDO threads in a few very small injection sites. The threads are specially designed to hook onto the tissue and allow the doctor to carefully pull and adjust them to lift the skin into the desired positions. Read more about PDO Threads…
Fotona 4D Facelift
Using the advanced Fotona laser, we can give you immediate natural rejuvenating facelift results with no surgery and no downtime. The Fotona 4D is a series of non-invasive laser treatments. Both the interior and exterior facial tissue is treated with a laser enabling full thickness treatment to the collagen for on-going skin tightening and volumizing. This advanced laser facelift is a 4 dimensional procedure that transitions from Fotona’s SmoothLiftin, FRAC3, PIANO and SupErficial modes. All these laser modes work in concert to combat facial aging in a facelift procedure that doesn’t require anesthesia, cutting or downtime. This is the non-surgical facelift procedure that Hollywood celebrities are raving about. Read more about the Fotona 4D Facelift….
A surgical facelift and neck-lift will tighten the loose skin on the face and the neck area taking years off of your appearance.
This procedure consists lifting and re-suspending the loose skin on the mid-face to create a smooth, youthful, V-shaped, jawline. This is done with small incisions that are made around the ears that are easily hidden. If there is considerable volume loss in the cheek area, the procedure may include a fat transfer to improve roundness.
This procedure consists of lifting the skin on the entire face including the forehead area. Several incisions in the hairline will be made to allow the doctor to reposition and tighten the overall face. This procedure may include fat transfer to add volume to areas that are hollow and need fullness.
This procedure generally starts with liposuction to remove any excess fat that may be causing a double chin or an overly full chin area. Through a small incision under the chin, the doctor will remove the fat, tighten loose neck muscles and lift the droopy skin.
What to Expect
Dr. Doohi Lee takes extra care to insure all of his patients achieve a natural look with his procedures. He strives to enhance a patient’s individual beauty rather than doing anything that distorts or over-emphasizes the facial features. You can expect the results of the non-surgical facelift to last 12-18 months and the results of a surgical facelift to last 10-15 years.
