“By combining fillers with newer technologies, such as lasers and Smart Lipo ™, a patient’s face can be rejuvenated and refreshed.”
– Dr. Pratt
Some areas of the body may have lost fat due to the aging process or an injury. LipoStructure® is a way to rebuild the indention caused by the loss of fat. By removing fat from other areas of the body and injecting it into the affected area, LipoStructure® causes the area to plump up, and the skin to be smoothed over it. This treatment can also be used on acne scars or other types of scars in which the scar is depressed.
In conjunction with a facelift, fat may be sculpted or redistributed from the face, jowls and neck. Skin is re-draped over the uplifted contours, and excess skin is trimmed away. Sutures or skin adhesives close the incisions. Dr. Pratt uses the latest advances used by only a handful of surgeons which greatly minimize bruising and swelling, reduces the risk of hematoma (bleeding under the skin) and alleviates the need for drainage tubes. The overall effect is a more natural refreshed appearance than simply having tightened the skin.
During your consultation, Dr. Pratt will evaluate your skin, muscle, bone structure, and other specific conditions that may have contributed to your aging appearance and then tailor the procedure to your individual needs for the best result. A facelift, which primarily addresses the lower face and neck, is often combined with other facial cosmetic procedures such as a brow lift, blepharoplasty, or chin or neck liposuction in order to achieve your cosmetic goals.
Recovery from facial sculpting is generally mild in comparison to full-blown surgical procedures. The SmartXide DOT™ laser, which is an innovative new laser designed to restore the skin’s youthful appearance, causes some redness that resolves within four to five days. SmartLipo™ will cause mild swelling, numbness, and occasional bruising. Dermal fillers, such as Botox®, do not require downtime, and you may experience very mild tenderness or bruising at the injection site.
