Stem Cell Facelift Offers Alternative to Facelift Surgery

Posted by Cosmetic Surgery Review on February 12, 2010

Many men and women who want to permanently get rid of wrinkles, fine lines and sagging skin turn to facelift surgery to improve their appearance. Facelift surgery is a fairly intensive procedure that demands several weeks of recovery. In some cases, the surgeon must remove fat from certain areas of the face with a mini-liposuction technique and use skin tightening treatments in certain areas to achieve the full effect.

However, men and women interested in facelift surgery may now have another option. The Stem Cell Lift™ is now available at a cosmetic surgery clinic in Beverly Hills and has helped many patients achieve exceptional results within a short period of time and with a faster recovery time. Dr. Nathan Newman of Advanced Cosmetic Surgery in Beverly Hills, California is the first physician to perform this procedure and was featured on Extra on February 4 to showcase the effects of the procedure.

Dr. Newman reports that the results with the Stem Cell Facelift “look more natural than traditional facelift or other fat grafting procedures.” The procedure is performed under local anesthesia and does not require a scalpel so there is no need to worry about scars and nerve damage. A small amount of fat is removed by hand so that the fat and regenerative cells can be preserved for re-injection.

The doctor then injects a series of injections into the various facial compartments, and additional injections are administered during a set of follow up visits. The doctor reports that this procedure not only improves the tone of the facial tissue around key facial compartments, but also improves the skin’s structure and tone. The stem cells fully integrate themselves into the injected area within days and develop their own blood vessels very quickly. This results in a very natural, youthful look and the patient is completely recovered in as little as 2 weeks.

Currently, the cost of a Stem Cell Facelift ranges from $5,500 to $9,500.
