Cheek Augmentation – Cheek Implants Palm Beach Gardens

Cheek Augmentation Palm Beach Gardens

Have your cheeks lost tissue and decreased in volume over the years? Permanently restore volume to the cheeks and return a sense of balance to your facial features with the help of cheek augmentation using cheek implants.

Your cheek augmentation procedure will require the creation of two incisions. These incisions can be made in either the lower eyelids or the inside of the upper lip.

After either general or local anesthesia is administered, these incisions will be created. Following this, the cheek implants will be carefully inserted.

Contact us and arrange an informative consultation to find out more about cheek augmentation. Board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Anita Mandal has a high level of skill and a wealth of experience with a wide variety of facial procedures.

Ask The Plastic Surgeon: Best Age For A Mini-facelift

Question: Despite my sagging jowls and neck, my plastic surgeon says it’s too early for a facelift. Would a mini-facelift work?

Answer: A mini-lift is a good option for mild to moderate aging. My quick recovery facelift, the Whisper Lift™, lifts sagging tissues with less downtime and local anesthesia.

Early intervention with a less-invasive approach can reduce the need for a more aggressive traditional or full facelift in later years. The Whisper Lift™ is performed in younger patients who are not ready for a more invasive procedure.

The Whisper Lift™ is also a good alternative for mature patients who previously had a facelift and years later desire a “tuck”. In fact, 50 percent of patients undergoing the Whisper Lift™ have had previous lifting procedures.

“Whisper-eligible” men and women range from age 37 to 86. The Whisper Lift™is can also be combined with other rejuvenation procedures.

The Whisper Lift™ is safer option with less anesthesia, surgery and downtime as well as lower risk. Unlike the “cookie cutter” lifts, the Whisper Lift™ is customized to individual patient concerns.

The Whisper Lift: Awake Facelift Alternative

For patients who are not ready for a traditional or full facelift, The Whisper Lift offers neck and jowl tightening with local anesthesia and less than a week of downtime.

As the movement towards less invasive procedures continues to gain momentum in the aesthetic industry, more procedures are becoming available to postpone or bypass surgical procedures entirely. One such procedure is The Whisper Lift™ – developed by Palm Beach plastic surgeon, Dr. Anita Mandal, this revolutionary procedure addresses sagging jowls and neck tissue and may turn back the clock back 10-15 years.

Ideal for patients who are not quite ready for a traditional or full facelift, the Whisper Lift was designed specifically to avoid a stretched and overpulled look while yielding natural facial rejuvenation results. Dr. Mandal says, “Over the years, I’ve had a number of male and female patients come in for consultations during which they expressed concerns about aging in the cheek, jowls and neck line. And while the majority of them recognized they needed some sort of surgical procedure to improve those areas, many were quite apprehensive about undergoing a full facelift especially when combined with the increased risks and side effects of aggressive anesthesia.”

Based on nearly 15 years of surgical experience in the face and neck, Dr. Mandal developed the Whisper Lift, which combines her surgical expertise with the latest techniques. The Whisper Lift enables her to tighten underlying muscles and skin giving natural-looking, long lasting rejuvenation, but with the added benefits of low risk anesthesia and minimal downtime.

Dr. Mandal has performed the Whisper Lift on a broad range of patients from their 40’s to 70’s – from patients with early signs of aging who only need a little “tuck” to mature patients with more significant sagging of the jowls and neck tissue. According to Dr. Mandal, nearly half of her patients undergoing the Whisper Lift have had a previous facelift or lifting procedure by another surgeon. The Whisper Lift is easily combined with other procedures such as a blepharoplasty or eyelid lift, liposuction to the neck, platysmaplasty, or facial fillers to provide a more balanced rejuvenation.

The Whisper Lift procedure takes approximately 90 minutes, verses the 4-6 hours typically required for a traditional or full facelift. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia in one of two surgical suites at Dr. Mandal’s Aging Gracefully Surgi-Center, part of her Palm Beach Gardens practice. As opposed to the general anesthesia required in a traditional facelift, local anesthesia reduces the risk, costs and recovery time immediately following the procedure.

During the Whisper Lift, the incisions used to reach and tighten muscles are much smaller in comparison to those in a traditional facelift. These incisions are strategically placed so when fully healed, patients may wear their hair up or back without being concerned about visible incisions.

Another benefit to the Whisper Lift is significantly shortened downtime. “The downtime averages about 4-7 days, enabling most patients to return to their jobs and/or routine activities after one week. This downtime is distinctively less from the recovery period associated with a facelift, which could be 4-8 weeks,” says Dr. Mandal.

Are You Afraid Of A Facelift? Consider The Whisper Lift

By Anita Mandal, M.D.

Q: What is the Whisper Lift?
A: The Whisper Lift was developed in 2007 by Palm Beach Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Anita Mandal as part of the next generation of Quick Recovery Facelifts. Designed for patients that want convenient procedures with less downtime, the Whisper Lift tightens and lifts sagging jowls and neck tissues without the prolonged recovery and extensive anesthesia associated with more aggressive facelifts.

Less invasive than a traditional or full facelift, the Whisper Lift offers a youthful, beautiful and refreshed appearance without an “operated” or unnatural look. Typically performed under local anesthesia and in a fraction of the time needed for a full or traditional facelift, the Whisper lift is also known as an “awake facelift”, allowing your quick return to most daily activities within 4-10 days.

Q: What are the benefits of a Whisper Lift?
A: The unique benefits of the Whisper Lift in comparison to a traditional or full facelift include:

  • Shorter operating time
  • Less downtime and recovery
  • Use of local anesthesia instead of twilight sleep or general anesthesia
  • Natural results
  • More cost-effective
  • Shorter incisions
  • Less risk of facial nerve injury
  • Lower chance of uneven posterior hairline

Q: How long does the Whisper Lift last?
A: The Whisper Lift can take 5-15 years off your face. Like traditional facelifts, if you look ten years younger after surgery, in 5 years, you will have aged but can still expect to look 10 years younger than had you not undergone surgery. The effects of the Whisper Lift can be considered fairly permanent, but surgery does not halt the aging process as your tissues will continue to sag with age.

Q: Who is a candidate for a Whisper lift?
A: The Whisper lift is recommended for patients who:

  • Have mild to moderate sagging of the jowls and neck
  • Do not want a traditional or full facelift
  • Want to avoid an overpulled, unnatural or “wind blown” appearance
  • Had a prior facelift and just need a “tuck”
  • Prefer less downtime and/or recovery
  • Do not want general anesthesia or IV sedation
  • Desire cost effectiveness without compromising safety or quality
  • Want a lower risk procedure
  • Who are mainly healthy

A thorough consultation with your Facial Plastic Surgeon to assess your individual needs is the first step in assessing the type of lift most suitable for you.

How the Whisper Lift Facelift Alternative Works

Posted on 8/18/2011

Have you thought about getting a facelift? Facelift surgery is still one of the most effective ways to tighten the skin tissues and get rid of wrinkles, but it is an extensive procedure that involves a long downtime. Many people just don’t have the time available to recover after surgery and may be hesitant to go under the knife. The Whisper Lift™ is a facelift alternative, a revolutionary procedure that can turn back the clock up to 15 years. It was developed by Palm Beach plastic surgeon Dr. Anita Mandal and may be just what you need to restore your youthful look.

Get in touch with a plastic surgeon in your area to find out if you may be a good candidate for a facelift alternative. The Whisper Lift™ is available exclusively by Dr. Anita Mandal, but many plastic and cosmetic surgeons have developed their own procedures as an alternative to traditional facelift surgery.

How the Whisper Lift™ Facelift Alternative is Performed

The Whisper Lift™ is usually performed in under two hours and the entire treatment is performed under local anesthesia. This reduces many of the risks and costs associated with the traditional facelift procedure. During the Whisper Lift™, the doctor makes some small incisions around the hairline, and can then reach in and tighten the muscles. If fat needs to be removed, the surgeon may use a very precise liposuction technique to get rid of excess fat around the neck, jawline and cheeks. If the patient is dealing with hollowed cheeks, this facelift alternative may be complemented with a set of facial fillers.

According to Dr. Mandal, the downtime for the Whisper Lift™ is between four to seven days, and most people can return to their regular routine within a week after the procedure. Since the incisions made around the hairline are so small, they are not visible and can be hidden easily.

Benefits of the Whisper Lift Facelift

The Whisper Lift™ facelift alternative is designed for men and women who want to avoid the pain and downtime involved with traditional facelift surgery, and also want to avoid the “stretched” look that some types of facelift surgery create. Unlike the traditional facelift, the Whisper Lift™ creates a more natural look and can be especially effective for tightening up loose skin around the jowls and neck.

Some of the key benefits of the Whisper Lift facelift technique include:

  • Fast recovery time – usually one week, compared to four to eight weeks of traditional facelift surgery
  • Performed under local anesthesia
  • Less pain and discomfort than traditional surgery
  • Only takes about 90 minutes to two hours
  • Can be combined with other procedures, including the eyelid lift, liposuction and injectable fillers
  • Creates a more natural look, rather than a “stretched” or “pulled” appearance

Whisper Lift – Palm Beach Gardens Facelift Alternative

Whisper Lift Palm Beach Gardens

Patients interested in an effective facelift procedure without unnatural results may benefit from our unique Whisper Lift technique.

A Whisper Lift involves the creation of incisions in the areas around the patient’s ears. These are well-camouflaged in natural lines and creases so that any post-surgical marks will not be evident.

After this step is complete, your facial plastic surgeon will be free to lift, reposition, and tighten the SMAS (Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System) layer and platysma muscle tissue. Because it raises this deeper layer of tissue, the Whisper Lift provides a deeper and more comprehensive lift than many other facelifts.

Learn more about the Whisper Lift from its creator, board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Anita Mandal. Dr. Mandal has years of experience and will be available to discuss this procedure and many others during a consultation. To arrange a consultation, contact our office.
