A Flash Lift Procedure

One of the distinguishing advantages of Wave Plastic Surgery is our ability to customize and tailor treatments to the anatomy and goals of a broad patient population. A Flash Lift is a quick procedure that is used to help patients look a bit more youthful and energetic. It is ideal for patients who want to treat early signs of aging without having a procedure that uses an incision.

A Flash Lift is considered a minimally invasive facial rejuvenation procedure. It is performed in an in-office procedure suite using only a mild oral sedative and local anesthesia. The procedure is easily performed through the following steps:

  • High tensile strength molded sutures are inconspicuously placed in the scalp
  • The sutures are gently pulled to lift the soft tissues of the midface

Sutures are always placed in a proprietary customized fashion for each patient. Quality of the patient’s skin and soft tissues and the degree and direction of elevation required are taken into account before performing the procedure. This type of customized treatment approach is one of the reasons why a Flash Lift is able to provide patients with results they love.

Flash Lift Recovery and Results

A Flash Lift is a very popular procedure because it can be performed in a short period of time (usually only thirty minutes) and results are immediately visible. Other advantages of the procedure include the following:

  • No incisions
  • No scars
  • Minimal to no downtime

Most patients require nothing more than oral Tylenol for the first forty-eight hours after their procedure. Most patients can return to work or their normal daily activities within this same time frame. Patients who wish to maximize their Flash Lift results may consider a simultaneous procedure like a fat transfer or Sculptra treatment to add volume to newly elevated soft tissues and amplify the procedure’s aesthetic effect.
