Look 10 Years Younger in One Hour

‘The Hour Lift’ or mini-facelift is now the most popular cosmetic procedure’

“I only charge $2,900 because I want looking young to be affordable to everyone.”
Dr. Eric Seiger

By Sally Rummel

She eats right, she works out and takes care of herself every day. She wants her face to reflect this same youthful vitality that the rest of her body shows.

That’s why one local 69-year-old woman, who asked to remain anonymous, is in the pre-op area of the Skin and Vein Center in Fenton for “The Hour Lift”, a mini-facelift procedure that’s becoming more and more popular.

“We’ve been doing these for about 15 years, but they’ve become much more mainstream now since makeover shows on TV began to glamorize them about 10 years ago,” said Dr. Eric Seiger, board certified dermatologist and cosmetic surgeon. “It’s not a ‘taboo’ thing anymore.” Dr. Seiger estimates he has done over 5,000 of these procedures, on women as young as 24 and for a couple who was each 86 years old. “I’d say the median age for this surgery is about 58, and 95 percent of my patients are women. The results will last between five and 10 years, depending upon the patient.”

The difference between The 1 Hour Lift and a traditional (plastic surgery) facelift, is that The Hour Lift involves cutting the skin and tightening the facial muscles, rather than moving the facial muscles.

There’s a huge difference in recovery time and price. “It’s the difference between a three-day recovery and a two-week commitment,” said Dr. Seiger.

The price is also a huge factor in a person’s decision to undergo this procedure. A plastic surgery facelift will cost between $6,000 and $15,000 -depending upon the scope of the procedure. I only charge $2,900 because I think looking young should be affordable to everyone. These are elective cosmetic procedures and are not covered by insurance.

“The number one thing that patients say to me is, ‘I don’t want to look 20 years old again. I just want to look in the mirror and be able to look as good as I feel inside. I want to feel refreshed,”’ said Dr. Seiger.

The Benefits of the HourLift: Who Can Try the One-Hour Mini-Facelift?

For the 69-year-old patient who was waiting for her procedure, The Hour Facelift was not only for her own self-esteem, but also for her success in the business world. “A youthful appearance validates your professionalism,” she said. “This is how we get measured for our success.”

Before and After Hourlift

Preparation, Procedure, and Aftercare for the HourLift Mini-Facelift

Prior to surgery, you will be given a sedative to help you relax, after which a local anesthetic will be applied to minimize any discomfort.

During the mini-facelift procedure, which will take between one to one and a half hours, a small incision is made in the front of the ear. The surgeon will then lift the tissues under the skin to take out extra skin. The skin is then re-draped over the overlying skin to produce a more youthful, wrinkle-free appearance.

After the mini-facelift procedure, patients will wear an iced head garment for approximately 24 to 48 hours. They will generally be able to shampoo their hair and apply makeup the day after the procedure. The sutures will be taken out within six to eight days.

Patients may experience some bruising and minimal pain may be experienced that can be alleviated with oral medication. But, like SmartLipo, Lipostructure, and other cosmetic procedures, the 1 hour face lift is very non-invasive.
