As people age, bones begin to shrink, facial structures decrease, and our skin and muscles begin to sag. This occurs in our facial structure too, resulting in the appearance of wrinkles and sagging skin. This creates an aged look in both men and women and causes them to look older than they would like to appear. Fortunately, there is a way to restore your youthful appearance with our family of HourLift mini facelift procedures that provide excellent patient satisfaction!

Dr. Eric Seiger pioneered the amazing HourLift mini face lift in Michigan procedures over 20 years ago and has performed over 6,000 lifts. People travel from all over the country (and even some foreign countries) to have this procedure done in our Michigan offices.

It can be frustrating when you’re feeling so good on the inside and you look in the mirror and realize that your face doesn’t reflect that. All of our HourLift Michigan mini facelift procedures are done in-office with no general anesthesia, and the best part is that results last 5 to 10 years!

The HourLift procedures are designed specifically to fit your desires and needs. Prior to all of our HourLift mini face lift procedures, you will speak with a member of our expert, professional staff. During the consultation, we will guide you to make the right procedure(s) just for you.

The Original HourLift

The HourLift procedure takes between one to one and a half hours, during which, an incision is made in front of the ear to the frontal hairline. The surgeon will then tighten the muscle with a special suture that will keep the patient’s skin tight for 5-10 years. The surgeon will lift the muscle under the skin, and tighten the skin and remove any excess skin producing a more youthful, wrinkle-free appearance. Traditional sutures are used to close the skin.

After the mini-facelift procedure, patients will wear an iced head garment for approximately 24 to 48 hours. The patient 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. A small percentage of patients may experience some bruising and minimal pain that can be alleviated with oral medication.

HourLift Plus

Our most popular procedure is just for you if you desire a tightening of the neck for an overall more youthful appearance. The HourLift PLUS combines the HourLift and a Neck Lift. A neck lift is an additional procedure done at the same time to target problematic areas around the chin and neck treating loose, sagging skin. Neck lifts also can eliminate fat deposits, removing a double chin. Incorporating the One HourLift with a neck lift creates a rejuvenated look for the whole face and neck areas. The neck lift is also an in-office procedure that utilizes local anesthesia and can produce amazing results.

‘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 between 2,500 and 3,000 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 regular (plastic surgery) facelift, is that The Hour Lift involves cutting the skin and tightening the facial muscles, rather than moving the facial muscles. The areas primarily improved by a facelift are the jowls, cheeks and neck. 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. Dr. Seiger says he used to charge $3,800, and he cut the price to $2,900 when the economy changed a couple of years ago. A full facelift will cost between $6,000 and $15,000 — depending upon the scope of the procedure. These elective cosmetic procedures 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 Lift 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.”
