The “OperaLift” is only available at Obi Plastic Surgery in Jacksonville.
This amazing mini facelift delivers tighter skin on your face and neck and decrease wrinkles without expensive and invasive surgery. The “OperaLift” also causes minimal bruising and allows your to get back to normal activities much faster that traditional facelift procedures.
What Exactly Is The OperaLift Non Surgical Face Lift?
The OperaLift Non Surgical Face Lift or Mini Facelift 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 offers patients a much less invasive option. SlimLipo laser liposuction / skin tightening, enriched fat transfer and Platelet Rich Plasma, (PRP) are 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 Mini Facelift was first suggested by Dr. Obi while partnering with Palomar Medical Technology, Inc. in the development of SlimLipo | LifeSculpt™ Laser Liposuction, which was originally focused on Body Contouring. Dr. Obi realized that a laser that could melt fat delicately and more effectively than any other laser lipo platform, tightened skin in the treated areas presented a tremendous value in facial plastic surgery. Dr. Obi’s Neck lift and facelift techniques took a dramatic leap forward. The SlimLipo Laser began to play a huge role in Dr. Obi’s neck lifts and facelift procedures because of its ability to safely remove excess fat from the face and neck and also tighten and firm skin without invasive surgery.
The Refining Advantages of Enriched Fat Transfer
Adivive Enriched Fat Transfer is another highly advanced process that is part of the OperaLift Mini Facelift. Dr. Obi uses the fully enclosed and sterile Adivive Fat Processing Unit to collect and prepare a small amount of unwanted body fat. The fat is then enriched with growth factors and nutrients to help assure that the fat survives the transfer process. And the processed/enriched fat is then injected to replace lost facial fat and remove sunken areas of the temples, checks and jawline. And as a natural filler for creases and fine lines. Adivive Fat Transfer allows Dr. Obi to naturally sculpt and reshape the face and neck back to a younger more youthful appearance.
What Is Platelet Rich Plasma, (PRP) And How Does It Help?
We hear a lot about PRP these days but seldom hear how PRP has become such a powerful benefit to many medical and cosmetic procedures. PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is concentrated mix of your own, (autologous) blood platelets, 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. Given these benefits, it’s not hard to understand how PRP offers significant benefits to both recovery and long term results. 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.
