Dr. Kahn and his staff are excited to announce that they are now offering a revolutionary new facial rejuvenation procedure, called the NewLift. As opposed to traditional facelift procedures, the NewLift is less invasive, safer, takes less time to perform, has a shorter recovery period, and produces truly natural-looking results. The NewLift also represents a more affordable alternative to the full facelift, making it accessible to many patients who may have wished for, but could not have considered a facelift before.
The NewLift is meant to significantly improve facial contours , lower face and neck. It addresses problems such as neck fullness and turkey waddle appearance, and the loss of the jawline curve. The NewLift can also reduce some facial wrinkles , such as the creases between your nose and mouth. In order to achieve these results, Dr. Kahn uses an advanced combination of excess fat removal (liposuction), tightening of the underlying facial and neck muscles, and repositioning of the facial and neck skin.
While many patients are reluctant to undergo a traditional facelift for fear of ending up with an overly pulled, “caught in the wind tunnel” look, the NewLift addresses this concern by providing softer, more natural-looking results. Following the NewLift procedure, your appearance will not disclose that you have had any work done – instead, you will look more youthful, glowing, and “well-rested.”
A full face lift typically requires general anesthesia, and takes about 4 hours to perform. By contrast, Dr. Kahn can perform the NewLift in about an hour and a half and will use local instead of general anesthesia. This minimizes unnecessary risks and represents a safer alternative for the patient. The local anesthesia involves numbing injections in the face and neck, and is similar to what is usually done at a dentist’s office, except that the numbing area is larger.
While full face lifts are often associated with significant incisions along the patient’s hairline, the NewLift requires only a suture in front and behind each ear. This makes the procedure less invasive and leads to minimal scarring. It also creates an area of bruising and swelling much smaller than a traditional facelift does, and shortens the recovery period to about a week. A week after your surgery you can return to your regular work activities.
While recovering, you will not be constrained to bed and can be up and around the day following the surgery. You do, however, need to avoid exercise, lifting, and straining for 2 weeks. Most patients feel comfortable stepping out in public and wearing makeup a week after surgery, even though the healing continues after that. About a month after the surgery, you should have a fairly good idea of what your results look like.
Despite being considerably safer and less invasive than a traditional facelift, Dr. Kahn’s NewLift can nevertheless achieve over two thirds of the results produced by a full facelift. At the same time, the cost of the NewLift is much lower than that of a traditional facelift, making it affordable to a larger range of patients.
Dr. Kahn has been performing facelift procedures for over twenty-five years and has had an impeccable safety record. He was also among the pioneering surgeons who developed and perfected the Weekend Facelift, a mini-facelift procedure which has helped lay the foundation for the more technologically advanced NewLift. Due to Dr. Kahn’s extensive expertise in facial rejuvenation procedures, you can be sure that you’ll be in safe hands – and you will absolutely love your new and youthful-looking appearance!
