Wave Lift in Los Angeles, Orange County and San Francisco

The Wave Lift is a procedure exclusively developed and designed by Wave Plastic Surgery to address the early signs of age in the midface/lower face region without a formal facelift scar and recovery.  It has been our experience, that with the exception of the facelift procedure (which is the gold standard), there have been numerous procedures and machines that promised a truly rejuvenated results that have all ended with disappointments.  The thread lift is a good example of this disappointing result.  

At Wave Plastic Surgery, through our extensive experience with our facelift procedures, we have developed a truly minimal incision, minimal downtime procedure that gives a natural and definitive rejuvenation of the mid and lower face.  The surgery can be done under local/ IV sedation/or general anesthesia, depending on the patient’s preference.  The incision is minimized to the temporal/upper aspect of the groove on the ear.  The skin and muscle are dissected and utilizing our natural retaining ligaments as a carrier, strategic sutures are placed to elevate the skin/SMAS.  Areas of particular attention are the nasolabial fold and jowls.

The incision sutures are all dissolvable so there is no need to remove the sutures. Average recovery time is one week and the longevity is up to 5 years.
