Where Did the Band Aid Facelift Come From?

All one needs to do is a little web surfing to realize that there is now a treatment for nearly any cosmetic problem that may arise, some being quick and non-invasive while others require significant surgery or ongoing treatments. When it comes to looking younger, surgical facelifts with board-certified plastic surgeons have held strong as the most effective way to get rid of excess sagging skin and refine the underlying tissue for the most comprehensive results possible. But, you may ask, if so many people have been happy with their facelift results, why did I develop the Band Aid Facelift?

During this fellowship, while I did work with patients who were having their first face lift, I was also seeing many patients who were having a second or even a third facelift, not because they were unsatisfied with the results of their earlier surgery, but because their first surgery was ten or fifteen or twenty years ago, and they now wanted to address the new wrinkles and excess skin that had occurred throughout that time.

Of course, aging is a continuing process, and it makes perfect sense that patients want to maintain their youthful appearance by addressing new signs of aging as they arise. The problem, however, is that a traditional facelift is a rather extensive plastic surgery, and between the recovery time and the costs involved, very few patients can afford to have this procedure more than once. That’s why I developed my Band Aid Mini Facelift. Using specialized minimally invasive techniques, I’m able to achieve natural-looking facelift results with an in-office surgery under gentle numbing (as well as conscious sedation if desired), rather than general anesthesia in an operating room. This offers patients a level of improvement that only cosmetic surgery can provide, yet with significantly less downtime and cost than a traditional facelift requires. As a result, it allows a much larger group of patients to enjoy the continued youthfulness of multiple surgeries.

The process of developing the Band Aid Mini Facelift began nearly twenty years ago, and today, thousands of patients have been able to achieve a lasting confidence they didn’t think was possible without a traditional facelift. Finding the best cosmetic surgery for your unique needs is one of the keys to seeing ideal results, so it’s important to research your options and to speak with a board-certified plastic surgeon who can evaluate your case and base their recommendation on years of expertise.
