Myth #1: The Band Aid Facelift is the same as other mini face lifts.
Truth: The Band Aid Facelift is a maintenance facial procedure that I personally developed with specific techniques I’ve utilized and tweaked through years of practice. I developed this technique in 1997 because most patients don’t want to look different, just younger, like they did 10 years ago. My Band Aid Facelift has been re-formulated to be more “patient-friendly” with natural-looking and long lasting results, meaning people in their 40’s, as well as, people in their 80’s, can take the clock back 10 years as an alternative to a traditional facelift.
Myth # 2: The Band Aid Facelift is painful.
Truth: People believe that because the procedure is done while you are awake with local anesthesia, it is more painful than if you were asleep for the procedure. But the truth is, the Band Aid facelift is done with local anesthesia because it is less invasive than a traditional facelift. I practice a gentle numbing technique, so that patients feel minimal discomfort as they are numbed and no pain during the procedure. Patients will only experience mild discomfort during recovery.
Myth #3: I cannot afford the Band Aid Facelift.
Truth: Someone in their thirties may see some sagging under their chin that they are not fond of, but paying well over $10,000 for a full facelift is an unnecessary expense. Procedures like the Band Aid Facelift cost a fraction of the price of a traditional procedure and can pinpoint the parts of your face requiring a touch-up. Because the Band Aid Facelift is performed in-office, under local anesthesia, there are less surgical and hospital fees. This translates into a lower cost for the patient. I make sure that my patients receive the highest quality care, at a price that they can afford.
