Baltimore Maryland Board Certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Dean Kane give his take on how Old is New Again!
Old is New Again! Blog
In our rapidly changing world, old things can become new again! Just think of how the first facelifts were performed. 100 years ago, a pinch of skin was removed and the skin re-draped without its excess. Voila!
Today, the different types of deeper and more extensive facelifts are found to be equal in duration. They last 5-15 years depending on the quality of the skin and soft tissues underneath.
With increased work weeks and diminished funds, patients are desirous of a faster healing alternative. Patients are choosing to turn back the clock with techniques from yesteryear and nuances from today. A pinch of relaxed jawline and jowl skin with tightening of the deeper tissues are giving a “natural” improvement under local anesthesia with today’s Easy Lifts in about 2 hours.
A little neck contouring and a stronger chin in 1-2 hours with a chin implant and micro-liposuction maybe right for you too under local anesthesia or with a bit of sedation.
Each patient is unique and therefore requires a careful assessment and a plan to match their budget with true expectations. The more skin excess requires more incision to re-drape and tuck the skin around the ears and hairline. Fuller faces may get away with liposuction and thread-lifting.
Other less or non-invasive skin enhancing options are available too.
