If yes which test I sud go on to conform its problem.
I am Dr. Sandeep Bhasin from Carewell medical centre. I am a laparoscopic and cosmetic surgeon.
Today I will be talking about various procedures of facelift.
Till 1990, the most popular method of the facelift was surgical facelift. It was called SMAS lift. Now, SMAS is the membrane on the muscles- aponeurotic membrane on the muscles and this was tightened and it causes face tightening. The results are really good with this technique but the only thing is it’s very emissive. People are not very interested in invasive procedures.
So, after 2000, we’ve got a lot of non-invasive procedures. I’ll be talking few of them.
- One of them is a Thread lift. Thread lift is a method in which we put threads and cause face lift. We use PDS threads for that.
- Another method for face lift that is becoming very popular now is the Fat grafting. So, what we do in this is we remove the fat from the abdomen or from any other area by liposuction and we use this fat for fat grafting in the face.
- Another method that is becoming very popular is HIFU. HIFU is High Intensity Focus Ultrasound. So I’ll tell about what are the advantages of HIFU as compared to other surgical or non-surgical methods.
Now, surgical method always has a time and there is a downtime after any treatment. So whence you go for a facelift about 3 weeks to 1 month it takes for the complete healing process. So this is the time when you have bruising, swelling in the face so that’s the downtime. The same problem you face with the fat grafting also as it is a surgical method and 3-4 weeks are required as a downtime. As compared to that, HIFU does not have any downtime. Immediately after the procedure you can go back to your office and nobody will come to notice that something has been done. This is one time there is no downtime involved in HIFU.
The same thing is with the Thermage. Thermage is another treatment that was used for face tightening in which we use radio frequency for face tightening. Now in HIFU we are able to reach up to 4.5 mm, where as in thermage we were hardly able to reach up to 2.5 mm. So, the results with HIFU are deeper and longer lasting as compared to thermage and thread lift. So, because of all this things HIFU is becoming very popular and the most popular treatment for face lift that is now in vogue in use now.
If you have any enquiry regarding face lift or HIFU, you can reach me in my clinic or you can be online with me on Lybrate.
