With a surgical facelift, Dr. Robert Whitfield is able to:
For most facelift patients, the incisions will be placed in the hairline and around the ear. However, with a short scar facelift, there are no incisions behind the ear. The advantage of this is that it, as the name implies, produces a shorter scar. While this sounds ideal, it does not necessarily mean a less visible scar. The disadvantage is that it only works for certain patients and cannot address the neck. Dr. Whitfield is sensitive to the fact that no patient wants a visible scar; this is where his experience and years of training really come into play. He is meticulous in the making and closing of his incisions, creating well-hidden facelift scars.
A brow lift can reduce the horizontal lines across the forehead, improve the “eleven” lines between the eyebrows, and lift a sagging brow back to a more youthful position, making the eyes look more awake. Dr. Whitfield performs what is called an endoscopic brow lift. This advanced approach to facial surgery involves the use of an endoscope, a tiny camera inserted within the brow structure, with the muscular condition revealed on a television monitor.
Truly remarkable improvements to the brow can be achieved by Dr. Whitfield with AccuTite, a revolutionary development in aesthetic technology. This device delivers focal radiofrequency energy to the underlying structure of the brow. It is a minimally-invasive treatment that performs two tasks: skin tightening and fat reduction, performed under local anesthesia, in a scarless brow lift procedure.
