Bothered by sagging facial skin?

Your face provides the world with a lasting impression of who you are and how you feel. But, it doesn't have to tell your age.

For many of our patients, the "wind-tunnel" look caused by overly taut skin following a facelift is no longer acceptable. They desire a more "natural looking" rejuvenation. Busy patients demand more immediate results with little, if any, downtime, smaller incisions, no visible scars and no potential for hair loss.

Enter the S-Lift or Short Scar Facelift

The S-Lift, or short scar facelift, is performed by Dr. Zikria for patients in our region to provide an overall lift to your neck and the lower third of your face. Compared to a traditional facelift, it is a quicker operation with fewer complications and a much faster recovery. The S-Lift is particularly well suited for middle-aged and younger patients and can make a dramatic change in the way you look by tightening sagging muscles and skin of the cheeks, chin and neck.

An S-Lift is performed using tumescent local anesthesia and may be combined with facial and neck liposuction. Results from your S-Lift can be further enhanced with subsequent laser resurfacing to smooth wrinkles and provide greater skin contraction.

The best candidates for an S-Lift are men and women that:

• are in good health
• are typically between 30 to 60 years old
• have mild to moderate lower facial and/or neck laxity
• have realistic expectations
• want to stay ahead of the aging process

The S-Lift procedure

An S-Lift procedure may be performed in our doctor's office or in an outpatient surgical facility. Pre-medication is generally recommended to relax the patient. An S-Lift is performed using a special anesthetic solution, which is injected in the area forward of the ears. This fluid gently lifts the skin from the underlying tissue.

Operating on one side of your face at a time, our physician excises a narrow "S"shaped section of skin from the area forward of your ear. The skin is lifted and the surgeon tightens and repositions the underlying muscles and tissues. Excess fat is removed. The opening is closed using fine sutures. The procedure normally takes less than 2 hours.

What are the benefits of an S-Lift procedure?

  • A natural look
  • Quicker recovery time
  • Minimal complication risk
  • Minimal scars
  • No hair loss

Are the results from an S-Lift permanent?

Following surgery, the normal aging process resumes. Your lifestyle choices, bone structure, skin type, sun exposure and heredity all play a part in determining how many years can be removed by an S-Lift and for how long. In general, younger patients enjoy longer-lasting results.

Is an S-Lift for you?

If your excess or lax facial or neck skin is bothering you, an S-Lift may be your answer. Your doctor can help you decide the best treatment to obtain your desired results.

How will I look after S-Lift surgery?

After our doctor performs your S-Lift, the changes can be dramatic. The use of smaller instruments and fluid to separate the skin from underlying tissue results in an almost bloodless procedure.

After your procedure, you will go home and rest for at least 24 hours. There may be some minor bruising and swelling for 1 - 2 days. You will wear a small bandage over the incision site for the next 2 - 3 days. Mild pain relievers may be needed. After that, you may take a shower and wash your hair. Men may shave their face. Sutures will be removed after 6 - 7 days. Direct sun should be avoided for several weeks. Most of our S-Lift patients resume normal activities after 4 - 5 days, some choose to return to work immediately.

Our S-Lift patients love the fact that after their S-Lift they don't look like they had surgery. They just look great and years younger.
