The P.A.L.M.E.R. Lift, the next generation in facial rejuvenation, is a surgical procedure to restore a more youthful appearance to the face.
As we age, the cumulative effects of gravity, sun exposure and the stresses of everyday life begin to show in our faces. The skin loses its elasticity, causing the jawline and cheeks to sag. Fat also sags, causing volume loss in the midface, and fatty deposits may develop underneath the chin and in the jowl area. The neck will become lax, and the jawline becomes less defined. Facial wrinkling may also appear.
The Latest Approach to Facelift
The P.A.L.M.E.R. Lift, which also includes treatment of the neck, can improve these visible signs of aging. Rather than give you a different, operated-upon appearance that is unfortunately rather common with many face-lifting techniques, Dr. Palmer strives to restore a more natural look to your face, which in turn means you won’t look tight or stretched; rather, you will look younger and more refreshed.
The results of a facelift depend greatly upon the surgeon who is doing the operation. A proper facelift addresses the multiple components of facial aging, including skin laxity, fat positioning, muscle tone and skin quality.
Dr. Palmer takes all these factors into consideration prior to surgery and will customize the procedure for each individual patient. His facelifts differ from others in many ways, such as he does not use general anesthesia or drains.
The incisions are expertly hidden inside the ear, behind the ear, and inside the hairline, resulting in virtually invisible scars. All soft tissue components of facial aging, including the neck, can be corrected with his technique, which is very different from most other procedures that are performed today.
His precise technique allows for a quick and painless recovery, and patients are usually looking better than before surgery in about a week. The results are also long-lasting, with the average patient enjoying the results of their facelift for about twelve years.
