For over 100 years, people from all walks of life have fervently pursued the goal of looking younger through Facelifts. In fact, the first Facelift was performed in Germany, at the very start of the 20th Century when an elderly, Polish aristocrat asked her doctor to give her a “little lift” in her cheeks and mouth. By the 1920s, aesthetics had already become a burgeoning specialization for Facelift Surgeons. Today, Facelifts are routine. They enable modern day men and women alike to take 10 years off of their appearance, enhance their feelings of confidence and increase their quality of life.
To accomplish these goals, Traditional Facelifts have typically utilized invasive techniques that tighten loose skin, and restore the face’s youthful resilience and natural contours. While older patients may still prefer or even require this route, younger patients, seek something less traumatic that will still deliver desired results.
In response to numerous requests for a minimally invasive option, Dr. Oleh Slupchynskyj, a New York-based Facial Plastic Surgeon, developed a unique technique known as the SLUPlift™. This Mini Facelift provides the same, long lasting results as a traditional lift, in half the surgery time and without large incisions, General Anesthesia or a lengthy recovery time. It is important to understand the major distinctions between a Traditional Facelift and a Mini Facelift, like the SLUPlift™. Dr. Slupchynskyj wrote, Why Less is More: Not Your Mother’s Facelift to accurately inform consumers about these distinctions in addition to the differences among all facelifting surgical techniques that are employed today.
