LiteLift™ – The New Facelift
Article by Jed H. Horowitz, MD, FACS
Orange County Plastic Surgeon
The Lite-Lift is a modified facelift that can be performed in our office under local anesthetic in just two hours. Compared with a traditional facelift, the incisions are smaller, procedure less invasive, and best of all, natural with much quicker healing. The older ‘mini facelifts’ only lifted the skin; the Lite-Lift tightens the underlying structures, with better, longer lasting results.
Beverly Hills has long been known for its high profile plastic surgeons as popularized on TV shows such as Doctor 90210, and nip/Tuck, but the OC (Orange County) has more board certified plastic surgeons than any area in the United States. Dr. Jed Horowitz and Dr. Larry Nichter, two of the plastic surgeons of Orange County, have more than 25 years experience in performing cosmetic facial surgery. Their office, their staff and their personal experience with facelifts, body contouring and breast surgery rival the best of the best of Beverly Hills, Hollywood, West Los Angeles and Santa Monica, Like Beverly Hills, patients having facelifts in Orange County want the most sophisticated techniques that look natural and heal quickly. The Lite-Lift is the facelift for celebrities, business people and the housewives of Orange County.
All board certified plastic surgeons are trained to perform traditional facelifts that have provided consistent results. Most doctors are reluctant to change the techniques that have given them satisfactory outcomes. The Lite-Lift requires time to learn and develop the expertise our patients deserve. An ‘expert plastic surgeon’ as defined in a recent article by Dr. Rod Rohrich, editor of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Journal, is “a person with special knowledge… the time, ability and dedication to focus on excellence.”
By this definition, Dr. Horowitz and Dr. Nichter are the ultimate experts in the field of Cosmetic Facial Plastic Surgery, having refined their skills for years to offer the best for their patients. They don’t just rely on the title of being a ‘Beverly Hills Plastic Surgeon,.’ But rather they rely on their training, years of experience and passion for innovation and excellence.
The Lite-Lift Facelift is one of the more progressive treatments performed by only a limited number of Board Certified Plastic Surgeons. The best candidate is a man or woman in their late 3’s to 50’s that have early change in their skin, neck and jowls. That being said, we have performed the Lite-Lift under local on patients even in their 70’s. In the past, I would have only recommended a traditional facelift for mny of these men and women. They have all been very excited with their Lite-Lift results, and I myself have been amazed at what great outcomes these patients have experienced.
