Dr. Valaie is well-known for the great results of his face and neck lift procedures. He is specifically trained in the newest, modern lift procedures which are less invasive and have minimal downtime.
The “thread lift” takes several forms, including the specifically patented Silhouette Lift. The thread lift procedure is an alternative to the fillers (the liquid facelift) or to the traditional surgical lift, which involves general anesthesia and weeks of “down time.” Thread lift is an excellent alternative to traditional facelift with much less complications, and also provides a renewed and enhanced youthful appearance, to the traditional allowing the patient to look her best.
Both men and women benefit from this in-office procedure, which results in an appealing and natural look that is immediately apparent. After the approximately hour-long procedure, patients can quickly return home, and generally return to their normal activities within two to four days.
Dr. Valaie has received a certificate in developing an Aesthetic Treatment Plan: Evaluating Facial Anatomy. Because of his advanced training and expertise, he is uniquely qualified to help patients determine the best procedure to meet both their aesthetic needs and budgetary requirements. If you are considering a facial re-enhancement procedure, the thread lift might be the right procedure for you.
Done with mild sedation, this procedure is an alternative to fillers as well as to the traditional face-lift. Fillers do provide volume temporarily, and this “lifts” the aging face. However, the results of the thread lift can last for up to four years, with the ability to tighten the sutures to obtain even longer-lasting results.
Dr. Valaie may utilize the thread lift in combination with other rejuvenating procedures, including skin resurfacing processes such as Collagen Induction Treatment (CIT) or fractional CO2 laser treatment, both stimulate collagen growth and rid the complexion of fine abnormalities.
The thread lift utilizes special non-absorbable polypropylene sutures with hollow absorbable cones, which allow the tissue to grow in and around them. This anchors the lift, and is a great advantage over traditional sutures. This results is continuing improvement in the face for several months after the patient leaves the office, although immediate and natural effects are obtained the same day.
The cost of the thread lift represents a considerable savings over the cost of the traditional surgical facelift, and the results are amazing, yet so natural that patients can return to their work or other activities within a few days, with no one the wiser. People will undoubtedly notice their youthful and well-rested appearance, which also results are long lasting.
Dr. Valaie has achieved certification of advanced training in the Silhouette Lift under the tutelage of Dr. Richard Goldfarb, MD. He is well prepared to evaluate and recommend any type of thread lift, whether with or without additional cosmetic enhancement, to achieve the best results for each patient.
Using the same techniques he has mastered with use of the thread lift and Silhouette Lift, Dr. Faraz Valaie is offering brow lifts at the Pacific Cosmetic and Facelift Center. With the specially prepared polypropylene suture, with hooks and cones, Dr. Valaie is able to rejuvenate the aging brow in a short in-office procedure, with long-lasting results.
Unlike the traditional brow-lift, the thread brow-lift does not involve a large coronal incision. Instead, a minimal incision will allow insertion of the specially designed sutures, so that the brow tissue can be lifted and secured in a brief in-office procedure at Dr. Valaie's Newport Beach office.
The brow falls victim to gravity and loss of collagen, often before the rest of the face. The youthful brow has room for less than 4 fingers placed between the brow and the hairline. As your skin ages, the eyebrows may droop, and a brow lift can restore their lovely natural arch.
As the brow settles, wrinkles often accompany that movement. Again, laxity is due to aging and loss of collagen beneath the surface. Gravity inevitably pulls our faces to the floor, and the brow is often one of the primary areas noticed by men and women who strive to present a fresh face to the world.
After your brow lift, you will appear natural, yet refreshed. The difference will be subtle but definite. You will soon be ready to return to your daily activities, as there is no use of general anesthetic, and no need for admission to the hospital or surgical center. Before the procedure, you are encouraged to stop smoking, avoid aspirin or NSAIDs, Vitamin E and fish oil.
