As we mature, we lose volume in our face in the form of fat, muscle, skin, and bone. This occurs throughout the entire face especially around the eyes, temples, cheekbones, cheeks, and around the mouth. The loss in volume makes our face look ‘deflated’ causing the overlying skin to sag. Adding volume to our face in the areas we know volume loss occurs allows the face to ‘re-inflate’ and corrects the sagging skin around the jaw line, cheeks, eyes, neck, and mouth.
Our nonsurgical facelift, also known as the MM Lift™, is a revolutionary technique that improves the nasolabial folds, marionette lines, tear troughs, and the jowls at the same time in a single visit. This procedure is great for patients who want a facelift but aren't quite ready for a surgical procedure.
Various volumizers are used to create a nonsurgical lift that mimics a surgical mini-lift. This lift avoids the overfilled appearance around the mouth, namely in the nasolabial folds and marionette lines.
We use blunt cannulas to inject the volumizers or fillers which decrease bruising and swelling by 90-95%. Blunt cannulas can be thought of as blunt needles instead of sharp needles. Few practitioners use a blunt cannula because of training and experience reasons but also because of the cost of blunt cannulas.
Radiesse® , Voluma, Restylane Lyft, and Sculptra® are not just wrinkle fillers; they are also global facial volumizers. They provide more volume than other fillers such as Restylane®, Juvederm® Ultra, Belotero, or Juvederm® Ultra Plus and last longer than these fillers. Using these products, we can restore youthful facial contours by filling under the skin so that it inflates or “lifts” the facial tissues. Our double board certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Majmundar, uses his knowledge of proportional facial contours to recreate a balanced and natural nonsurgical facial lift known in our office as the ‘Natural Liquid Facelift’, also known as the MM Lift™.
It provides global rejuvenation to the temples, laugh lines, sagging cheek tissues, and around the eyes. As with all other injections there can be temporary swelling, redness, and bruising, though the use of blunt cannulas decreases your risk. You will be provided with an ice pack after your treatment to use the remainder of the day. You may use your makeup and sunscreen immediately after treatment.
