It is a fact of life that as we get older our body ages. Now that is an obvious statement, but the problem is that we look older, and for many people, especially here in San Francisco, this can be a depressing experience. We all want to look our best for as long as we can, but the natural process of aging denies us this chance.
However, today we are in the 21st century and we have procedures which can reverse the appearance of aging even if we cannot actually stop the process itself: time passes, and we get older. One answer in today’s world is the Visage facelift in San Francisco.
The Visage facelift in San Francisco has been developed by Dr. Alex Rabinovich with the object of helping patients to get the finest results with minimal surgery and recovery time. He has taken the best features of traditional techniques and combined them with his very own modifications in order to make the process so much easier, and with better outcome for the patient.
A Board Certified Facial Cosmetic Surgeon
Dr. Rabinovich is a board certified facial cosmetic surgeon with extensive experience in the art of facelift and necklift surgery. He is one of very few cosmetic surgeons in this specialty in San Francisco.
As we get older, sagging skin, loss of muscle tone, and excess muscle fat become apparent and the youthful look that we once had is gone. There may be excess skin under the chin, drooping cheeks, and wrinkles, as a result of too much time spent in the sun.
The Visage facelift in San Francisco addresses all these issues by lifting the sagging muscles of the neck, cheeks, and jowls, and creating a much more youthful appearance without the tight look of traditional facelift techniques. This works because it deals with the deeper tissues by going under the muscle and sliding it upwards into the position it was when you were younger. The muscle and fat are lifted and tightened with the incision line inside the ear. The scars heal better because there is no tension on the superficial layers and skin, and there is less bruising and swelling. The procedure results in a soft, natural look without the tightness associated with the traditional techniques.
The whole procedure takes about two hours and it can be carried out under a local anesthetic or twilight sedation in our state-of-the-art office rather than under general anesthetic.
Dr. Rabinovich offers all patients an initial consult when he can examine you and advise you of the best way forward, and at the same time answer all your questions.
