3D Facelift

The 3D Facelift directly targets all the causes of facial aging to achieve smooth, rejuvenated skin that appears natural and unoperated. Dr. Athre has spent over 10 years developing this specialized facelift and has performed hundreds of facelifts using these techniques. The results are amazing and will truly turn back the clock of aging.

What Is Facial Aging?

Facial aging consists of the loss of collagen fibers, elastin fibers, and volume, which results in a tired, droopy face. Additional results of facial aging include:

  • Crepe-like skin and laxity of the lower eyelids
  • Fine lines and wrinkles of the face and neck
  • Drooping of the midface and jowls, leading to jowl formation, fullness in the cheeks rather than over the cheekbone, and laxity/looseness in the neck

How a 3D Facelift Combats Facial Aging

Dr. Raghu Athre developed the revolutionary 3D Facelift to combat and manage all of the results of facial aging. To that end, the 3D Facelift incorporates the following techniques:

  1. Surgical facelifting: Surgical facelifting lifts the cheeks and resuspends tissues, bringing the cheekbones back into prominence and reestablishing the normal heart shape of youthful faces. The surgical facelift also eradicates the jowls, recreates a sharp jawline and neckline, and softens the melolabial region (smile lines).
  2. Volume replenishment: Volume replenishment using your own fat recreates the volume of the youthful face, especially in the temples and along the lower eyelid/cheek intersection. Dr. Athre also uses some amount of volume repositioning.
  3. Resurfacing: At the end of the 3D facelift, Dr. Athre resurfaces the entire facial skin in the procedure room with either a trichloroacetic acid (TCA) peel or a laser.
  4. Exilis treatments: Four postoperative Exilis treatments to the face/neck area further enhance collagen building and cross-linking.

The 3D Facelift can be performed under local anesthesia with oral sedation or under general anesthesia based on factors such as patient preference, patient health history, and overall facial anatomy.
