The Simplicity face lift is the best solution for anyone seeking the benefits of a traditional facelift but without all of the pain, extensive healing period, and potential scarring of more extensive facial surgery. Traditional facelifts involve multiple cuts into the facial tissue and more invasive surgery to achieve a wrinkle free look. Traditional facelift surgery requires longer recovery time (often several weeks) and may carry more risk of infection or scarring due to the greater number of incisions required to complete the operation.
The Simplicity Facelift by comparison involves two incisions above the ears with a patented “pulley stitch” that lifts both the facial skin and underlying muscle and tissue to reduce wrinkles. This less invasive method utilized by Dr. Dominic Castellano of Elite Facial Plastic Surgery in Tampa, will provide a long lasting solution to solve most common types of facial aging. The recovery period is greatly reduced and most patients only need a few days before returning to work or activities.
Some patients have confused the Simplicity Lift with the heavily promoted Lifestyle Lift that is offered by several plastic surgeons across the country. However, there are some significant differences between the two procedures. The Lifestyle Lift was developed to reduce the amount of surgical and recovery time but the outcome of the surgery does not last as long as the Simplicity Lift. This is because the Lifestyle Lift only tightens the facial skin but does not lift the underlying muscle tissue. So with time, the thin facial skin will often droop and show wrinkles within a year or two. The Simplicity Lift offers all the benefits of traditional facelift surgery and will be extremely long lasting.
Also because the Lifestyle Lift has been “franchised” or sold to a variety of other surgeons, there can be slightly different methods used depending on the surgeon you choose. Whereas the Simplicity Facelift is only offered at Elite Facial Plastic Surgery and is performed only by Dr. Dominic. It is the best method to restore a youthful appearance. Patients that undergo a Simplicity Lift will meet with the surgeon in advance of the surgery to discuss the procedure in detail. Often the doctor performing a Lifestyle Lift will meet the patient on the table and not have the benefit of the advance consultation.
