Q: I've heard about a "one hour face lift" but I don't know how effective it is or what it involves...is it surgery? What sort of facelift is this and is it as good as a "traditional" facelift?
A: One Hour Lift is too good to be true
The one hour facelift is a beginner's technique for the inexperienced surgeon that will not achieve a a natural looking and long lasting result. The deep plane or sub-SMAS technique represents the state of the art in facelift surgery. Rather than just tightening the skin, this procedure lifts and tightens the underlying muscle while repositioning fat to achieve a three dimensional rejuvenating result.
A true facelift procedure is best performed by an experienced facial plastic surgeon who performs facelift surgery as a routine part of his or her practice.
