Facelift Plastic Surgery | Rhytidectomy Techniques The Produce Astonishing Results by Dr. Lewis J. Obi.
Exciting New Techniques Coupled with Advanced Technology Allow For Less Bruising, Less Scaring and Faster Recovery Times!
Forget Textbook Facelift Surgery, and benefit from PRP, and other surgical techniques and technology that are less expensive and create lasting results.
As people age, the effects of gravity, exposure to the sun, and the stresses of daily life can be seen in their faces. Also, we lose volume (fat, muscle, etc.) in our faces with age especially in our 40’s secondary to hormonal changes. Deep creases form between the nose and mouth; the jawline grows slack and jowly; folds and fat deposits appear around the neck. The volume loss leads to a deflation of the face which also leads to lose skin and sag.
A Facelift, (technically known as rhytidectomy) can’t stop this aging process. What it can do however is “set back the clock”, improving the most visible signs of aging by removing excess skin, tightening underlying tissues and redraping the skin of your face and neck. Also, muscle bands in the neck are minimized. Because there is also usually a loss of soft tissue volume, Dr. Obi usually performs specialized fat grafting techniques such as (Adivive™ | Lipokit) as well as Brow Lift Surgery, (The LJO Browlift or Entotine), and Eyelid Surgery, (Blepharoplasty) in conjunction with the face lift procedure. Unique to Dr. Lewis Obi’s practice is the integration of advanced techniques and technology such as Adivive, Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy, (PRP), Lasers, 3D Imaging, The LJO Brow Lift, and others. In fact, largely because of these advanced and innovative techniques, Dr. Obi was published in the first book on stem cells anesthetic procedures, (Springer Publications 2014).
“LESS IS MORE”
“LESS IS MORE” reflects the aesthetic sensibility of Dr. Obi’s artistry is reflected in the results enjoyed by each of his patients. Optimal results are accomplished with most patients after the initial procedure. However, touch-ups and refinements are not unusual in patients of advanced aging. Patients electing “limited” primary procedures should have realistic expectations as they often decide on pursue more extensive surgery once they develop confidence with Dr. Obi and his staff.
If you’re considering a face lift, the following information will give you a basic understanding of the procedure, when it can help, how it’s performed, and the results you can expect. Remaining questions about Dr. Obi’s different face lift procedures and how they might apply to you can all be addressed in detail during your initial consultation.
The Best Candidates for a Facelift
The best candidate for a facelift is a man or woman whose face and neck have begun to sag, but whose skin still has some elasticity and whose bone structure is strong and well-defined. However, with lasers, new grafting techniques and implants, more corrective surgery is possible in most patients.
Understanding Facial Structure
Most face lift patients are between the age of 35 and 65, but facelifts can be performed successfully on people in their seventies or eighties as well. A facelift can make you look younger and fresher, and it may enhance your self confidence in the process. But it can’t give you a totally different look, nor can it restore the health and vitality of your youth. Before you decide to have surgery, think carefully about your expectations and discuss them with Dr. Obi.
