Advantages of a Laser WhisperLift Over a Traditional Facelift

These days, you have the option of selecting from a number of different facelift techniques. These options all offer their own pros and cons and are chosen based on the needs and goals of each individual patient.

Are you planning to get a facelift but are unsure which treatment to choose? One procedure that has recently attracted attention is the Laser WhisperLift™.

This is highly versatile state-of-the-art facelift procedure is designed to reduce unwanted fat from the face and tighten the skin, making it more youthful and firm.

5 Ways in Which the Laser WhisperLift Is Better Than the Traditional Facelift

1. It Is Less Invasive

In a traditional facelift surgery, surgeons make a long incision on or near the hairline stretching from one ear to the other, followed by alteration and removal of various types of tissues. This can be highly effective, but it is also quite invasive and requires a fair amount of recovery time.

The Laser WhisperLift, on the other hand, involves three to five very small incisions in specific areas of the face. Once these one-centimeter incisions have been made, a laser is carefully guided underneath the skin to tighten sagging skin and destroy excess fat cells.

2. It Is a Shorter Procedure

The Laser WhisperLift surgery takes just sixty to ninety minutes to complete. The traditional facelift can take anywhere between two and four hours to finish.

Additionally, in the Laser WhisperLift, the patient is placed under local anesthesia, which is much safer than the general anesthesia typically used during a traditional facelift.

3. Recovery Time Is Much Shorter

The stitches made during the traditional facelift are usually removed seven to ten days after the surgery. The swelling and tenderness go down in one to two weeks’ time, and you can get back to work after ten to fourteen days.

In contrast, the stitches from the Laser WhisperLift procedure can usually be removed two to four days after the treatment, and the tenderness reduces in a week’s time. You can return to work by the end of the week.

4. Post-Surgical Marks Are Minimal

Because the incisions used in the Laser WhisperLift surgery are very small, post-surgical marks are minimal. Even during the surgery, Dr. Mandal ensures that the incisions are made only on areas of the face where marks will be well-camouflaged.

5. Results Are Almost Immediate

The laser in the Laser WhisperLift procedure is designed to immediately eliminate fat cells in the face. After surgery, you will notice a significant enhancement in the way your face looks. Your skin will also start to look tighter in a week or two as new collagen and elastin growth occurs.

With the traditional facelift, on the other hand, it takes longer to see the full results. This is because patients must wait for the swelling and bruising to fully ameliorate.
