This procedure improves the sagging jowls and jawline with the removal of excess skin and fat, along with tightening of the muscle covering (SMAS layer). After complete numbing with local anesthesia solution injections, the incision is placed in the natural crease of the ear.

The Awake Lift™ is often combined with the other “mini” procedures (i.e. mini cheek,neckeyelid and or brow procedures) to address all areas of patient concern.

For “beginners” and those who’ve already had previous facelifts, the Awake Lift is an excellent choice to create a more youthful appearance. With this procedure, maintenance and upkeep can be achieved in an “un-extreme” fashion.

Below are the main benefits of the Awake Lift™ surgery:

  • Local anesthesia only (quick, simple numbing injection)
  • Fraction of the investment of traditional lift (affordable)
  • Creates long lasting results
  • Safely performed in the office (in and out faster)
  • Limited bruising, swelling, recovery (minimal downtime)
  • Resume your lifestyle & most normal activities the next day
  • Popular for both healthy men and women of all ages
