In recent years there have been significant advancements made in facelift techniques, which have been driven by patient demand for shorter, less invasive facial rejuvenation treatments. The R Facelift is one of the newest techniques now available. But what exactly is the R Facelift.
What is the R Facelift?
The R Facelift is a minimally invasive facelift procedure that was created by cosmetic surgeon Mr. M. Riaz. The R Facelift is less invasive than the traditional facelift and is done using simple, superficial surgical steps, so there is a short recovery time. The procedure can be performed under local anesthesia, and this helps lower the risk of complications. The R Facelift is suitable for patients of all ages, including those wanting to reduce early signs of aging.
How is the R Facelift performed?
A pre-operative assessment is done to determine skin laxity, and identify the skin to be excised.
During the R Facelift, an R-shaped incision is made along the hairline as well as behind the ear. After this the surgeon will trim the excess skin and tighten the underlying tissues.
There is no bruising and swelling after the R facelift, because there is no undermining of the skin during surgery. Recovery takes approximately 7 days, and final results can be seen in 6-12 weeks.
Benefits of the R Facelift
The R Facelift is a quick procedure that takes approximately 1½-2 hours to complete. It rejuvenates the lower half of the face from the cheek area down to the jowls and neck. Despite being a less invasive procedure, the R Facelift provides results that are comparable to a more extensive facelift.
