The Cool Lift® Laser Facelift by Boss MD Plastic Surgery.
The Cool Lift® Laser Facelift is a patented minimally invasive, facelift done under local anesthesia, and utilizes 4 different standard techniques for skin tightening and rejuvenation. It usually takes less than 2 hours to perform if you include the neck.
The Cool Lift® Laser Facelift technique recontours and tightens the skin and reshapes the jowls by utilizing laser liposuction, which is an exceedingly difficult area to treat with a standard facelift. The laser lipolysis in the jowls not only reshapes the area but as a result from the heat that is delivered to the undersurface of the skin helps tighten that skin in most patients for 4-9 months following the procedure. The laser liposuction technique is also used in the neck portions of the procedure. Laser liposuction is a standard procedure for liposuctioning of the abdomen, thighs and the back; and has been herald by many plastic surgeons to have the advantage of creating better skin tightening than one would see with standard liposuction.
Placing special sutures known as silhouette sutures, pulls the tissue that lies below the deep membrane and re-elevates and tightens those tissues, while excessive skin is removed as would occur in any standard facelift procedure. Because these tissues are being elevated and repositioned there isn’t a need to elevate large segments of skin throughout the whole face, and because the skin requires a minimal elevation it can be done under local anesthesia. In addition, there is usually less bruising and swelling with this procedure, which results in much more rapid recuperation. Post-operative downtime is usually 5-7 days before one can return to their usual activities. Dr. Boss performs the Cool Lift® Laser Facelift on patients from early forties to early seventies.
Developing innovative procedures like the Cool Lift® Laser Facelift has been a hallmark of Dr. Boss’s Paramus, New Jersey practice for more than two decades. He saw the public’s demand for noninvasive or minimally invasive procedures and as a clinician, recognized that noninvasive procedures often mean no results. Developing a procedure that gives results that you can count on was the inspiration for the Cool Lift® Laser Facelift.
