Liquid Face Lift by Dr. Sean Freeman, Charlotte’s top facial plastic surgeon. For those who would like to avoid facelift surgery but want to see an improvement in the signs of aging, a liquid face lift is an alternative. Advantages include the ease of this being done in our office without sedation during your initial visit. Downtime is minimal although you may have some bruising and will have noticeable swelling for 3 to 5 days.
Dr. Freeman will advise you as to whether a liquid facelift is appropriate for you.
The main drawback to the liquid face lift method is the need for repeat treatments every year or so. Also, patients should not expect results that are as dramatic as those produced surgically. The areas addressed typically include the perioral area, the lower eyelid area, the cheek bone and along the jaw near the jowls. RADIESSE is Dr. Freeman’s filler of choice for this procedure although he will occasionally use a hyaluronic acid product near the vermillion of the lips. He will perform thorough consultation to determine the type of filler that will be best for you.
