Question: I love the idea of your Laser WhisperLift™. While I know it’s actual surgery, I prefer this less invasive operation compared to a facelift. What I don’t understand is that if it’s less invasive, why does the Laser WhisperLift cost nearly as much as a facelift?
Answer: With today’s cutting-edge technologies for facial renivenation , “less invasive” does not mean “less costly”. If you choose to have a Laser WhisperLift™, you are paying more for the advanced technology used to achieve effective results without the disadvantages of traditional facelift surgery.
This state-of-the-art laser allows surgical lifting and tightening of sagging tissues in the lower face and neck. Using only a few small micro-incisions through which the laser is passed underneath the skin, patients can avoid the large scars under the neck and in front and behind the ears as required for a traditional facelift.
Since the Laser WhisperLift™ is also performed with local anesthesia, the risks are much lower than with the general anesthesia commonly used for facelift surgery. Additionally, while the surgical plane is not completely bloodless with this surgical laser, there is much less bleeding during this laser surgery compared to a facelift.
The downtime is also significantly less with the Laser WhisperLift™, allowing patients to return to work in as little as 4 to 5 days. For those concerned about a natural appearance, the Laser WhisperLift™ has a much lower chance of creating a pulled appearance since skin is not removed but lifted by aggressive tightening, to enable repositioning of the tissues to give a more youthful appearance. In comparison, the pulled look from a facelift is commonly the result of too much skin being removed.
In patients who are candidates, the Laser WhisperLift™ offers significant benefits over a traditional facelift. It’s important to ask yourself if you would pay more for an advanced technology that enables significantly smaller surgical incisions, much less invasive surgery, lower risk of anesthesia, less downtime and more natural results?
