As you age, your body produces less collagen leading to sagging or drooping skin. This sign of aging can make you look older than your age, making you feel self-conscious about your looks. Fortunately, Dallas Safelift can help you look younger and improve your appearance.

A Safe lift is a less invasive facelift that incorporates a micro facelift with laser technology. It lifts and tightens drooping skin on your face and reduces healing time and discomfort.

How is a safe lift done?

Safe Lift is an abbreviation for “Suture Assisted Facial Elevation.”  This procedure combines several minimally invasive procedures, such as conservative skin excision, liposuction, and suspension sutures under local anesthetic. The proper candidate might have significant outcomes with little recuperation time. The “SAFE” Lift uses floating stitches to lift the facial tissues, minimizing the undercutting and lifting of the skin necessary in a full conventional facelift.

These sutures can elevate facial tissues without raising the skin of the tissues by being inserted beneath the skin into the cheek fat pads or along the surface of the platysma muscle in the lower neck. Compared to a standard facelift, this has a much speedier recovery and causes less swelling and bruising.  These suspension sutures are inserted through small incisions in the hairline or around the ear.

Who is the right candidate for a safe lift?

Patients with smooth, wrinkle-free skin and good face volume preservation but with indications of aging are great candidates for this therapy. A SAFE facial rejuvenation treatment can assist those with mild to moderate midface sagging. For people who cannot afford a lengthy recovery period and downtime, the surgery can be completed in a few hours under local anesthesia with a rapid recovery period of 5 to 7 days. Most patients may resume their normal activities 2 to 3 days following their treatment.

A “SAFE” Lift can be coupled with an injection of fillers, a brow lift, or blepharoplasty to enhance comprehensive facial rejuvenation results in people whose faces exhibit many signs of aging. Patients may benefit more from a classic facelift for cases with more severe skin sagging, drooping, and creases. The best approach to determine if you are appropriate for the operation or whether another method would be more advantageous is to schedule a consultation with your doctor.

What can I expect after a safe lift?

You should anticipate some inflammation, bruising, and pain following a SAFE lift. You should keep your head elevated and avoid intense exercise during recovery’s first day or two. Although some recovery is required, it takes far less time than the recovery period associated with a traditional facelift. Your doctor will give you detailed post-operative instructions to ensure everything is done correctly and achieve satisfactory results. Once recovered, patients can take pleasure in a youthful face that has years off of it.  Although we cannot avoid aging, SAFE lift can produce lasting benefits. Future minimally invasive rejuvenation procedures can help maintain your youthful appearance.

A safe lift can help to reduce wrinkles and fine lines, reduce sagging skin, improve your overall appearance and boost your self-esteem. Call Dr. Malouf Dermatology to book your appointment for a safe lift.
