If the concept of a Suture Suspension Facelift is new to you, you’re in good company. This innovative, non-surgical facial rejuvenation procedure transforms an old idea into an inventive, effective and practical alternative to extensive facelift surgery. Here at Eterna Cosmetic Surgery, we think you’ll agree that the Suture Suspension Facelift is the next best thing.
But you can’t get it just anywhere.
As the founder of Eterna Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Elizabeth Hernandez is an experienced cosmetic surgeon who is always on the lookout for creative, effective opportunities to enhance her patients’ results and experience. So it’s no surprise that she chose to train directly with the cosmetic surgeon who invented the Suture Suspension Facelift technique. Now, she brings this surgical alternative to patients in San Antonio.
So, why is this procedure the next best thing? Here are our 3 favorite reasons:
1. It works.
It rejuvenates the face significantly by lifting and firming the skin to lift the brows, midface, lower face or neck. Patients can choose to have any or all of these areas treated, and they can choose how much lift they want to see, so each procedure is individually tailored. This procedure can achieve 50-70% of the lift produced by a traditional surgical facelift.
For this reason the procedure is especially attractive to patients in their 40s and 50s, who are seeing visible signs of aging but don’t need or want a surgical solution. This procedure is also suitable for all skin types and genders, and it’s safe, with minimal risks or possible complications.
2. It’s not surgery.
This is an in-office procedure, so you can go home the same day. Dr. Hernandez uses either AccuTite or FaceTite to firm the skin and melt a thin layer of fat just below the skin, then uses a thin cannula to insert special sutures (surgical thread with tiny, spaced barbs) along the pre-defined lift lines. The barbs grasp and lift the targeted facial tissues, and they stimulate new collagen and elastin production so the tissues can support themselves in the new position.
There is little downtime compared to a surgical facelift – just 2 days instead of weeks. The sutures dissolve in a few months, leaving behind smoother, younger looking contours. The procedure takes just an hour or two, depending on the number of areas of the face being treated, and results last an average of 5 years.
3. No visible scars.
The suture suspension technique requires no lengthy incisions like a traditional facelift. The puncture-style incisions Dr. Hernandez makes are very small and hidden along the hair line or behind the earlobes, so they are virtually undetectable.
Is this your next best thing?
You’ve been thinking that it’s time to do something about your aging face, but you don’t want surgery. Or, maybe your face doesn’t need comprehensive improvement, just in an area or two. A Suture Suspension Facelift just might be exactly what you’re looking for and Dr. Elizabeth Hernandez is the cosmetic surgeon whose expertise you can count on to help you achieve the results you want.
It’s time to schedule a personal consultation, so you can discuss your specific aesthetic concerns and overall health and learn more about the procedure. Working together with Dr. Hernandez, you can decide if this is the right solution to regain a more youthful appearance.
