How the Whisper Lift Facelift Alternative Works
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
