Facelifts have long been one of the most popular cosmetic procedures for patients who feel like their face has lost its youthful, rested appearance. Getting a facelift has usually meant undergoing a serious surgical procedure in which the patient is put under a general anesthesia and required to spend significant time resting and healing in bandages for weeks following their procedure. The HourLift Facelift, performed by Dr. Seiger at the Skin and Vein Center, has provided another option for patients who are looking for an alternative to the traditional facelift.
The HourLift facelift generally takes a little more than an hour which is why this procedure is often referred to as the “lunchtime facelift”. Many patients remark on how surprised they are to see how well they look after such a quick and relatively painless procedure with many claiming that they look a good ten years younger.
So how safe is the HourLift facelift? Well, a lot of the safety and outcome of the procedure depends upon who is performing it and under what circumstances. If you as a patient are in relatively good health, without any serious medical conditions, and you’ve sought the expertise of Dr. Seiger, who has performed many of the same operations on others in the past, the procedure is quite safe. With the application of a local anesthetic versus a general anesthetic, patients are under less of a risk, and able to heal and recover much quicker. Instead of using serious surgical tools, Dr. Seiger is able to produce significant results minimally invasively.
If you’re interested in how a HourLift facelift can improve your appearance, start by scheduling a consultation with Dr. Seiger at the Skin and Vein Center. He can safely and effectively perform this procedure for you and give you the best possible results while taking years off your appearance.
