The “OperaLift” is only available at Obi Plastic Surgery in Jacksonville.
This amazing innovative facelift can give you tighter skin on your face and neck, decrease wrinkles without expensive and invasive surgery. “OperaLift” also allows for a faster recovery with less bruising.
What Exactly Is The OperaLift Non Surgical Face Lift?
The OperaLift Non Surgical Face Lift is an entirely new concept in facelift surgery. Instead of highly invasive surgery that creates scars, extensive bruising that often requires months to fully recover, the OperaLift brings you a less invasive option. Using SlimLipo laser liposuction / skin tightening, enriched fat transfer and Platelet Rich Plasma, (PRP) combined to gracefully remove years of aging from your face and neck. Among the many benefits, the procedure is considerably less expensive than traditional facelift surgery. Also there are no incisions required and bruising is greatly reduced with PRP. Downtime is reduced from 2-3 weeks (for traditional facelift surgery) to 7-10 days with the OperaLift Major and as little as 3 days for the OperaLift Minor.
The following information explains the multiple techniques and technology that make up the OperaLift Non Surgical Face Lift.
The Benefits of Laser Liposuction
The concept of the OperaLift was first suggested by Dr. Obi while partnering with Palomar Medical Technology, Inc. in the development of SlimLipo | LifeSculpt™ Laser Liposuction, (Originally focused on Body Contouring). Because laser liposuction only needed a 1/8 inch incision as well as the SlimLipo | LifeSculpt™ laser delicately melted fat while simultaneously tightening the skin, Dr. Obi realized it’s value in facial plastic surgery, primarily neck lifts and how it could be used to safely remove excess fat from the neck while effectively tightening the skin in a non-surgical way.
The Refining Advantages of Enriched Fat Transfer
Enriched Fat Transfer is another highly advanced process that is employed to perform the OperaLift. Dr. Obi uses the Adivive Fat Processing Unit to prepare a small amount of the patient’s unwanted body fat which is then enriched with growth factors and nutrients to help assure that the fat survives the transfer process. The processed/enriched fat is then injected to replace lost facial fat and remove sunken areas of the temples, checks and jawline, and other areas to sculpt, reshape and recreate a younger more youthful appearance.
What Is Platelet Rich Plasma, (PRP) And How Does It Help?
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a concentrated source of autologous, (your own) blood platelets, PRP and contains several different growth factors and other cytokines that stimulate healing of bone and soft tissue. The use of PRP greatly aids in the healing process and the reduction of bruising and swelling. Learn More about PRP >>
OperaLift Major provides a larger volume of Enriched Fat Transfer, (40 to 80 cc) of fat transferred to the face. The Major also includes SlimLipo | LifeSculpt™ of the neck. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) produced from the patients blood is added to enhance the fat transfer to reduce bruising and promote healing. Because the OperaLift is a non surgical face lift, general anesthesia is not required (which also reduces costs). Patients often elect to combine the LJO brow lift which is a minimally invasive procedure that enhances the appearance of the forehead or brow. This combination of non-invasive procedures provides the patient with a total rejuvenation of the brow, mid-facial area and neck at a significantly lower cost compared to traditional face and neck lift surgery, and again with considerably less downtime.
OperaLift Minor is a procedure that is performed with preoperative sedation, (Valium or Percocet) and local anesthesia only. As with the Major, SlimLipo | LifeSculpt™ is used to remove excess fat and tighten the skin. Processed fat is prepared and enriched, and a smaller volume (under 40 cc) is injected into areas of the face to restore a younger more youthful appearance. Most patients may return to work within 3 to 5 days.
