Today, facelifts are much simpler with easier recovery than ever before, and they provide such natural appearing improvements that most people will not know why you look so good. A facelift usually includes lifting and smoothing the neck, jowls, and cheeks. Other procedures may be suggested to improve the eyelids, forehead, and skin texture.
With the new simpler techniques, better anesthesia drugs and techniques, and an experienced, conservative surgeon, you will have very little discomfort, swelling or bruising, and you will be amazed at how rapidly you recover and get back to your normal activities. General anesthesia can be provided with just an IV drug and local anesthesia. No breathing tubes are usually needed when the procedure is performed by an oral and maxillofacial surgeon. These surgeons are trained in anesthesia and cosmetic surgery. Without breathing tubes, the anesthetic can be lighter so you recover faster with minimal side effects.
Facelifts are usually performed in surgical suites within the surgeon’s office. This keeps the whole process simpler, very private, and less expensive. So, if you are considering a facelift, visit an oral and maxillofacial surgeon for a consultation. You will be pleasantly surprised at how simple the process has become.

Even though the results of a facelift vary according to the patient’s unique facial contours, this cosmetic surgery generally tightens loose skin that forms along the jawline. This skin-tightening gives the face a youthful appearance and can noticeably improve his or her self-esteem and confidence. The results of a facelift typically last for about 10 years.
If you’re interested in getting a facelift, it’s important that you develop realistic expectations for the results. Even though this procedure does tighten the skin around your jaw and cheeks, it may not smooth every wrinkle on your face. This video provides more details on the benefits of facelifts and provides some before and after patient photos.

When you are young, your cheeks are full and healthy, giving you a naturally appealing glow. As your body ages, you slowly begin to lose the fat that gives your facial skin volume, eventually leading to sunken cheeks and sagging skin underneath your eyes. Luckily, you can restore your face’s youthful appearance through a safe and effective cosmetic surgery procedure called the AmazingFaces Lift. Keep reading to learn about some of the benefits of this procedure.
Unlike traditional face or neck lifts, the AmazingFaces Lift uses a long-lasting dermal filler called Radiesse. This unique material actually imitates the face’s natural tissue, filling the facial contours that have lost a significant amount of fat over time. The AmazingFaces Lift is performed in one office visit where Dr. McBride injects Radiesse into the face from the inside of your mouth. Because the injections are made from inside the mouth, your chances of developing bruises or noticeable needle marks are significantly lowered.
Uses a combination of Radiesse and fat transfer
If a significant amount of fat has been lost from your face, your cosmetic surgeon will use a combination of Radiesse filler and your body’s natural fat tissue. Your surgeon can easily harvest the few ounces of fat needed from your thigh or abdominal region with a small needle. He will then prepare the fat and inject it into the regions of your face that have lost fat volume.
Creates natural, long-lasting results
The AmazingFaces Lift doesn’t require invasive surgical incisions, so the fat and filler that is injected into your skin can quickly blend into your face’s natural tissue. The blood supply in your face will be able to naturally keep this injected fat alive, as it seamlessly becomes part of your face’s natural tissue.
Dr. Kevin McBride in Dallas developed the AmazingFaces Lift as an alternative to traditional facelift procedures. To learn more about this revolutionary procedure, call our office at (214) 989-4796. Our cosmetic surgery team will be able to help you determine which cosmetic procedures are right for you.
