As the years pass, skin loses its elasticity and firmness and collects excess fat under the chin, causing a sagging, less defined jawline. Bassin Center for Plastic Surgery Tampa offers an innovative procedure which combines the results of a facelift with the benefits of Smartlipo™. The smartlift in Tampa is a facelift technique that incorporates Cynosure’s Smartlipo™ laser with the traditional facelift procedure. The Smartlipo™ laser has customarily been used on the neck and abdomen as a minimally invasive surgical procedure to melt fat and tighten skin through collagen stimulation. Recently, this technology has been introduced into facial procedures, such as the smartlift in Tampa. The Smartlipo™ laser gently frees the skin from the underlying tissue which helps reduce bleeding during the facelift by coagulating small vessels in the face. This has virtually eliminated our use of drains for our facelift procedures. The benefits of the revolutionary smartlift procedure compared to more traditional facelift techniques include a shorter operating time, quicker recovery, less swelling and bruising, increased safety, fewer complications, and improved skin tightening as patients heal.
During a traditional facelift, an incision is performed from the front of the ear, around the earlobe, and to the back of the ear. This incision is made as inconspicuous as possible by positioning it along natural skin folds in front of the ears. The skin is gently elevated, and the underlying muscles are tightened. During the smartlift in Tampa, however, the laser is used to gently part the skin from the underlying tissue. The skin is then repositioned and the excess skin is carefully removed. The result of smartlift in Tampa is an extremely effective technique that provides all the benefits of a traditional facelift in a simpler, gentler manner. The Smartlipo™ laser firms the skin and tissue around the face, neck, and jowls through collagen stimulation, so patients can look and feel more youthful with a shorter recovery time. The smartlift in Tampa can be combined with laser skin resurfacing or our NaturalFill® procedure. Any combination of these procedures can be performed in the hospital, an outpatient surgical center, or our office based operating room at Bassin Center for Plastic Surgery Tampa.
