Preservation facelift, also known as Preservation Lift™ also known as Preservation Deep Plane Facelift, is a cutting-edge facelift technique that aims to rejuvenate the face while preserving its natural appearance and reducing recovery time compared to traditional deep plane facelift.

Preservation Lift™ Facelift Technique

This technique is the next generation of facial rejuvenation by addressing the deep layer of facial muscles, known as the deep plane, rather than solely focusing on skin tightening. By targeting the deep plane, surgeons are able to lift and reposition the underlying structures of the face, including the superficial musculoaponeurotic system and platysma muscles and at the same time reduce excessive soft tissue damage.

In a Preservation Lift™, surgeons release and reposition the retaining ligaments of the face to achieve a more comprehensive correction of the midface, lower face, and neck tissue as a whole. This technique allows for a more natural and long-lasting outcome, as it preserves the natural contours and features of the face rather than creating a stretched or tight appearance.

The evolution of facelift surgery has led to a shift towards vertical facelift elevation approaches, as surgeons have gained a better understanding of the support system of facial soft tissues and how they change with aging. By utilizing the Preservation Lift™ (Facelift) technique, surgeons can create a more harmonious and balanced rejuvenation of the face by lifting and repositioning the facial tissues vertically. The Preservation Lift™ (Facelift) technique offers several advantages over older facelift methods.

Firstly, the Preservation Lift™ (Facelift) minimizes skin elevation, resulting in reduced tension on the skin and a quicker recovery time. This is because the deep plane approach allows surgeons to access and lift the underlying tissues without excessively manipulating or undermining the skin. Additionally, the Preservation Lift™ technique reduces the need for drains, further enhancing the recovery process. Furthermore, Preservation Facelift provides a more comprehensive rejuvenation of the face. By addressing the deep plane and releasing the facial retaining ligaments, the Preservation Facelift can effectively lift and reposition the midface, lower face, and neck tissue, resulting in a more youthful and harmonious appearance.

“My experience with Dr. Sadati was one of the best experiences I have ever had with a physician. I never had considered getting a face lift until I started feeling unhappy with how I looked in the mirror. He has really mastered his craft – Dr. Sadati is your guy if you are looking for a great facelift!"

Preservation Lift™ Facelift Technique Long-Lasting Results

The Preservation Lift™ Facelift technique also offers long-lasting results. Studies have shown that the Preservation Lift™ Facelift technique, which focuses on preserving the natural fat compartments and volumetric balance of the face, ensures and prolongs the longevity of the results. Moreover, the Preservation Lift™ technique is based on the principles of Superficial Musculoaponeurotic System manipulation and repositioning of the malar fat pad. These principles have been proven to enhance the longevity and naturalness of the facelift results. The Preservation Lift™ technique represents a significant advancement in facelift surgery, as it allows for a more natural and long-lasting rejuvenation while preserving the unique features and contours of the individual’s face. By utilizing the Preservation Lift™ Facelift technique, surgeons can achieve a more natural and balanced rejuvenation of the face. In conclusion, the Preservation Lift™ technique is a revolutionary approach to facelift surgery that focuses on preserving the natural appearance of the face while addressing the underlying structures and achieving a comprehensive rejuvenation.

The Preservation Lift™ Facelift technique is a modern and advanced approach to facelift surgery.

Preservation Lift™ Facelift vs SMAS Facelift

It is a combination of high SMAS and deep plane facelift techniques, aimed at preserving the natural appearance of the face while achieving a comprehensive rejuvenation. This technique involves releasing the facial retaining ligaments and lifting the midface, lower face, and neck tissue in a vertical fashion. By doing so, the Preservation Lift™ technique minimizes skin elevation and tension, resulting in a quicker recovery time and minimizing the need for drains. The Preservation Lift™ technique is based on the understanding of facial anatomy and the changes that occur with aging. This technique allows for a more natural and harmonious rejuvenation by addressing the deep layers of facial muscles and preserving the natural fat compartments of the face. This technique has shown to provide long-lasting results, as it preserves the integrity of the facial structures and avoids over resecting soft tissue and skin undermining. The Preservation Lift™ technique has evolved over time to address the limitations of traditional facelift approaches.

Traditionally, facelift surgery focused primarily on pulling the skintight to reduce sagging and eliminate wrinkles. However, this often resulted in a stretched or tight appearance, giving the face an unnatural look.

Recognizing these limitations, surgeons have developed new techniques that go beyond superficial skin tightening and address the underlying structures of the face. The evolution of facelift surgery has led to the development of the Preservation Facelift technique, which aims to preserve the natural appearance and contours of the face while achieving a more comprehensive rejuvenation. By releasing the facial retaining ligaments and lifting the deep layers of facial muscles, the Preservation Facelift technique provides a more balanced and natural-looking result while minimizing the risk of complications and ensuring a quicker recovery time.

The Preservation Facelift technique is based on the understanding of the facial retaining ligaments and their role in the aging process. By releasing and repositioning these ligaments, the facial tissues can be lifted in a more vertical fashion, creating a more youthful and natural appearance.

This technique also involves a complete subplatysmal preparation and mobilization of the SMAS, which allows for a more comprehensive correction of the midface and lower face.

The Preservation Facelift technique also addresses the fat compartments of the face, ensuring that they are repositioned in a way that restores volume and contours to the face. The Preservation Facelift technique not only provides a more natural and harmonious rejuvenation but also aims to maintain the facial fat compartments, which play a crucial role in maintaining the youthful appearance of the face.

The Preservation Facelift technique has gained popularity due to its ability to achieve long-lasting results. This is achieved by addressing not only the skin but also the underlying structures of the face, such as the SMAS and retaining ligaments. These deeper layers play a significant role in maintaining the youthfulness and structural integrity of the face. With the Preservation Facelift technique, the preservation of these structures ensures that the results are not only immediate but also sustainable over time. The Preservation Facelift technique also offers several advantages for patients. Firstly, the Preservation Facelift technique reduces the risk of a stretched or tight appearance that can occur with traditional facelift techniques. Secondly, by preserving the natural contours of the face, the Preservation Facelift technique allows for a more personalized and tailored approach to each patient’s specific needs and desired outcomes. Furthermore, the Preservation Facelift technique minimizes tissue dissection and skin undermining, resulting in less post-operative swelling and bruising.
