Call today for your complimentary consultation!


Why SmartLipo and S-Lift?

Combination of SmartLipo™ and a mini facelift gives you the best combination to achieve a youthful face and neck.

  • Performed under local anesthesia in our office
  • SmartLipo™ allows laser to remove fat under your neck
  • Mini facelift restores the deeper tissues to give you a more youthful contour of the neck
  • Significantly reduced bruising and swelling
  • Supports your active lifestyle
  • Results last much longer than fillers or SmartLipo™ when used alone

So what is an S-Lift?

The mini facelift is also referred to as an S-lift, or short incision facelifts due to the shape and smaller size of the incision. Dr. Paula can perform this procedure under local anesthesia while you are awake.

The incision is hidden behind the natural curves of the ear called the tragus, so that no scars are visible. The muscle layer is tightened but not dissected and this minimizes post-operative bruising and swelling. This procedure is ideal for professionals and those with tight schedules, and recovery is usually a few days.

Traditional liposuction is effective in removing a large volume of fat permanently but it relies upon the body to allow the loose skin to tighten. SmartLipo™ on the other hand allows the skin to tighten due to the presence of the laser.

Traditional liposuction breaks the fat cells but, in doing so, also causes the surrounding blood vessels to break also, leading to more bruising. SmartLipo™ coagulates the small blood vessels so that the bruising is minimal. This reduces the downtime from the procedure allowing you to go to work in two to three days.
