Revitalift is a technique developed by Lori Hansen, M.D. It can include sculpting the fat, tightening the muscles, and removing the extra skin. This outpatient surgery can be done in about an hour and a half. You can wash your hair the next day and wear makeup pretty much right away.
Because this facial tightening procedure is tailor-made to each individual, it is not labeled as a facelift or mini lift. In all cases, the muscles are tightened, the fat sculpted, and the skin of the face and neck tightened. Each patient sags differently so the key is the vector by which the skin is lifted. Each patient has different muscles laxity and fat accumulation so that is the approach with each patient uniquely in mind. All of this is done under local anesthesia with slight sedation which is safer and allows for quicker recovery. Some patients are back to work in 2 or 3 days.
