Many of our patients are surprised to learn that the Volumetric Facelift is not uncomfortable, and does not require sedation. We do, however, use dermal fillers which contain a local anesthetic known as lidocaine, which helps to reduce any discomfort; while sensitive areas, such as around the mouth or eyes, can benefit from the use of a topical numbing cream. In the case of extremely nervous patients, a dental block can be administered, though this is rare.
The Volumetric Facelift addresses the main component of facial ageing: loss of volume from the fatty tissues, but also the skeleton. After all, as the facial bones shrink in size, there is less structural support for the overlying skin and soft tissues, which leads to tissue ptosis (sagging) – manifesting in an aged and tired-looking appearance. While the Volumetric Facelift has a wonderful effect on all aspects of the face (including the upper, middle and lower thirds), it does not benefit the appearance of the neck.
Immediately afterwards, you might notice a small amount of swelling (especially around the chin, or in the lips) – although this has usually subsided within a few days. In fact, most patients who have the Volumetric Facelift are back to work or their normal daily routine the following day. If bruising does occur, it can be covered with post-procedure makeup – though this should not be applied until the day following treatment.
The effects are visible immediately: contours are noticeably refined and the face shape appears more youthful. But the best results are to be seen in two week’s time, when the filler has fully integrated with the tissue and the face has settled.
