Denver, CO (PRWEB) December 10, 2007
Is the desire for quicker results pushing the limits in cosmetic surgery? Maybe, says Dr. Randolph Robinson, founder of Park Meadows Cosmetic Surgery.
Thanks to media and popular television shows on makeovers, the general public has been asking for more access to cosmetic procedures. Yet they want quick results without the downtime traditionally associated with more conventional cosmetic procedures.
But what people don't realize is that with quicker, simpler procedures, the results will also be less dramatic or even impermanent in nature.
"With simple procedures like the lifestyle or adjustable facelift, there is a question of how long the results will last," stated Dr. Robinson. "These facelifts are performed by using barbed thread to pull the facial tissues to a new height, then sewn in place. The threads can detach from the skin after a short period of time or, if not sewn in place correctly, can sometimes be seen through the skin."
Which has left many doctors like Dr Robinson searching for alternatives that provide far superior results, but still cut the recovery time to a minimum.
"As a double board certified cosmetic surgeon, I want to make sure I offer my patients the best possible procedure that will give them the results they are looking for, and will allow them to get back to their normal routines as fast as possible," stated Dr. Robinson.
Enter the new Harmonic Facelift.
The Harmonic Facelift provides the long-term results of a more traditional facelift with the speed and ease of using ultrasonic technology.
The purpose of a facelift is to give new life to your existing looks. A facelift will remove loose or excess skin, erase deep lines and wrinkles, or decrease the jowl area. While the traditional facelift remains ever popular, one thing may be holding some people back: the facelift on average requires three weeks of recovery time; weeks that many people in today's busy world simply can't spare.
Both the traditional facelift and the Harmonic Facelift procedures are performed in a similar nature. Incisions are made along the hairline, above the ear, and down around the lobe, ending in or below the hairline behind the ear. From there, the facial skin is lifted, tightened, and the excess skin is removed. The real benefit of the Harmonic Facelift comes in recovery.
The Harmonic Facelift uses a Harmonic Scalpel, which uses ultrasonic technology, and vibrates at a high frequency, 50,000 cycles per second. It seals the tissue as it dissects, and ultimately helps eliminate bruising typically associated with a facelift.
With less tissue damage, bruising is kept to a minimal; patients heal faster; and can usually return to work much quicker. It may be possible to actually cut the recovery time by as much as a week using this new technique.
"This is one procedure I have full confidence in," stated Dr. Robinson. "I know that my patients are going to have long term, superior results compared to some of the quick, in-and-out procedures on the market today."
