Featured today on Dr. Oz, Dr. Sharon Giese has developed a procedure known as the Natural Lift. The treatment addresses the common concerns of aging such as jowling, dark areas under the eyes as well as fine lines and wrinkles. Additionally, it allows patients to have the procedure and get back to work within only a couple of days.
Dr. Giese performs a combination of procedures, first injecting Botox in the brow for a non-surgical browlift effect. Then, she uses a new liposuction device that removes fat from the jowls and neck area and stimulates the growth of collagen to tighten the skin at the same time.
The procedure is done under local anesthesia meaning that patients are actually awake for the whole treatment. Local anesthesia also adds a layer of safety as well as helping drastically cut costs since patients don't have to pay for an anesthesiologist or a surgery center. The procedure can be done right in the physician's office.
Downtime is cut as well and patients can look forward to returning to work and normal activity within around 3 days as opposed to 3 weeks with a traditional facelift.
These kinds of procedures are becoming popular all over the country. They are each a combination of other treatments that all come together for one non-surgical improvement. They go by many names, but likely there is a similar procedure available from a physician in your area. Talk to a doctor to find out what options are best for your desired outcome.
