Facial Rejuvenation and Facelift Surgery are continuing to gain more popularity with people now more visible through social media and online video. Dr. Raymond Wolf appeared as a guest on Living Dayton to discuss the real truth about facelifts.
According to recent statistics by The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) there were 15,116,353 total cosmetic surgeries performed in the U.S., an increase from 14.6 million cosmetic plastic surgery procedures performed in 2012. Facelift surgery continues to remain in the top five cosmetic surgical procedures at 133,320 with the sharpest rise of the top five up 6% from 2012.
With social media, iPhone Facetime, Skype and other forms of video conferencing people are spending more money than ever for cosmetic procedures that beautify, rejuvenate and restore youthfulness - especially in the facial areas.
Dr. Raymond D. Wolf was recently interviewed on WDTN-TV Channel 2 by Vanessa Freeman on a segment entitled The Truth About Facelifts. Dr. Wolf is a highly experienced cosmetic surgeon who specializes in the MACS Facelift procedure which is vastly different from the traditional facelift procedure.
A facelift, technically known as a rhytidectomy, may involve a series of surgical techniques to give the patient a more youthful facial appearance. The process will typically involve removal of excess facial skin, tightening of the underlying tissues and redraping of the skin on the face and neck.
Historically, this type of surgically has been extremely invasive to the patient, involved primitive methods of anesthesia, left incision scars and often resulted in an altered unnatural appearance. This is known as the permanently windblown look.
In his recent appearance Dr Wolf explained, "Things have changed. With new anesthesia techniques there are actually patients who can have a facelift with no oral or intramuscular drugs at all." During the segment he went on to explain the aesthetic differences between the old and new procedure.
The segment featured many before and after photos of successful surgeries in which Dr Wolf was able to demonstrate the differences in his approach that have great benefit to the patient. He pointed out how a change of the angle and location of the incision within the hairline allows the hair to grow through it to successfully conceal the incision line.
The yields a more a natural appearance that closely resembles how the patient looked when he or she was younger. For those who are not yet ready to undergo facelift surgery Dr Wolf offers another rejuvenation procedure called Laser Lipo Plus which combines laser lipolysis and lower level laser therapy combined with classic tumescent liposuction to remove unwanted fat deposits. The result is smoother facial contours and exceptional skin tightening.
Dr. Wolf is able to perform the procedure with local anesthesia in his own office-based treatment facility. No hospitalization is required.
Patients undergoing facelift surgery can combine this procedure with other complimentary non-invasive procedures such as eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty), chemical peels, microdermabrasion and a variety of other rejuvenating techniques.
Dr Wolf has performed both surgical and non-surgical techniques in the Dayton Ohio area since 1998. People travel from both local towns and various states across the country to Dr Wolf's Rejuvenation Center & Plastic Surgery to rejuvenate and restore their youth and beauty.
