If you are looking to experience a more targeted form of facial rejuvenation compared to the comprehensive benefits of a standard facelift, an S-lift might be a great procedure for you.
The talented facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Mario Yco, offers S-lift procedures, among many other facial rejuvenation surgeries, at Your Cosmetic Offices in Encinitas, California.
An S-lift procedure gets its name from the shape of the incision made during surgery. This is an ideal procedure for more targeted facial rejuvenation that is conveniently less invasive than a traditional facelift. This procedure is comparable to a mini-facelift but relies on a different incision to pull the skin and tissue back in order to achieve a more taut appearance. As a whole, this procedure takes less time to perform than a traditional facelift and also boasts a much quicker recovery time. Because this procedure is less invasive, there is also a reduced risk of surgical complications or infection.
In order to have an S-lift procedure done, you must be in good overall health and have the desire to address facial concerns that can be treated with this specific procedure. You must also have realistic expectations regarding the results of this procedure and the recovery. An S-lift is designed to treat lower facial or neck laxity including fine lines and wrinkles on this part of the face. The best way to determine your candidacy for an S-lift procedure is by scheduling a consultation with Dr. Yco at Your Cosmetic Office.
PATIENT TESTIMONIALS: THE IMPACT OF YCO
“I’m so grateful that I found Dr. Yco”
Dr. Yco and his staff are simply terrific, and excellent at customer service. They answered all of my questions prior to the procedure and were very accommodating. He did a fantastic job with my PDO thread lift and I’m very pleased with the results. It was hard trusting someone to work on my face and I’m so grateful that I found Dr. Yco. He’s a true facial artist with a great demeanor, and I highly recommend his services.
You will be given a local anesthetic for an S-lift that will prevent you from feeling any discomfort during the procedure. In some cases, patients will be given a mild sedative to help them relax during the procedure, but a consultation with Dr. Yco will better inform you of what sedatives will be used for your procedure.
To begin the procedure an S-shaped incision is made in the area in front of the ear. This allows for minimal scarring after the incision has healed. The skin is then lifted, and the underlying muscle and tissue are repositioned in a more youthful way before being sutured in place. The duration of this procedure is between 60-90 minutes and results can last up to 10 years. An S-lift can be combined with many other different facial rejuvenation procedures, such as blepharoplasty or dermal fillers.
It is recommended that you take anywhere from 5-7 days off of work after an S-lift procedure to allow for your recovery. It may take 3-5 days for the bruising and swelling that appears after surgery to fade. Any pain or discomfort that lingers after leaving Your Cosmetic Office can be managed with over-the-counter pain medication. Around 5-7 days after surgery, you will return to see Dr. Yco so that he can remove your stitches. You will have to wait around 2 weeks before resuming any strenuous activities or exercises. For faster healing, Dr. Yco may refer you to have hyperbaric Co2 treatments or red light therapy.
