The West Coast Lift is a minimally invasive facial rejuvenation procedure which involves a complete rejuvenation of the face, jowels, neck. Additional procedures may be performed to improve the appearance of the brows, eyelids, and restore the youthful facial contours. The procedure is done in an outpatient setting with no general anesthesia and gives you natural results, not the pulled back "facelift look". The results may set the clock back 5 to 10 years with less downtime and risks than a traditional facelift. Call to make an appointment with Dr. Gorodisky to find out more about this procedure and see some of his great results.
The patient is examined by Dr. Gorodisky during the consultation and after the medical history is reviewed and it is determined that this procedure will be beneficial, the patient will undergo preoperative workup and get ready for the procedure. On the day of the procedure, the patient arrives at our AAASF accredited surgical center and meets with our nurses. Dr. Gorodisky performs some markings on the areas to be worked on. The patient then receives some light sedation and monitors are placed for safety. The patient will also receive local anesthetic. The excess skin is elevated and the muscles of the face are tightened. There is no cutting of the muscles so there is very little risk of injury to any of the facial nerves. After tightening has been achieved, redundant skin is removed and the incision is closed with absorbable sutures. The patient receives additional local anesthesia and sedatives during the procedure as needed. After ther procedure is complete, the patient may get up and after a period of observation in our recovery facility, may go home and rest.
After surgery the patient is seen on the following day. The swelling and bruising is variable to each individual, but mostly resolves within 2 weeks.
