Around 2004, the website www.smartliftmd.com was launched to provide information about a technique of facelift developed by Dr. Prasad and performed exclusively by Dr. Prasad. Since that time, the term “Smartlift” has been used in reference to facelift techniques used by other doctors as well as to techniques related to laser assisted liposuction. Anyone using the term “Smartlift” other than Dr. Prasad is not affiliated or trained by Dr. Prasad. A Real Facelift technique as developed by Dr. Prasad involved a combination of a small incision facelifts and local anesthesia with sedation as necessary.
The procedure was comparable to performing laparoscopic surgery where a smaller incision is made, but the appropriate work to accomplish the desired results is still completed. From the introduction of S lift and other short scar “weekend lifts”, there has been confusion regarding the difference between the Smartlift concept and other named facelifts. The other named facelift techniques are essentially shortcut procedures which have been used indiscriminately on people who may have needed more extensive procedures. Dr. Prasad’s face and neck lift surgeries are not shortcut procedures, but rather smaller incision procedures. The results and longevity of Dr. Prasad’s technique are comparable to traditional facelift techniques and should not be confused with the “one hour” / “no bandage”/no downtime techniques.
The most important point, however, is that the technique and its nuances are not as significant as the artistry of the surgeon itself. To learn more about how to make an informed decision about facelifts, please see The Truth About Facelifts.
What makes Dr. Prasad’s Facelift unique? Take a look at the comparison below:
Many people hesitate to get a facelift because they worry about looking “too pulled” or “too catwoman” after surgery. Plastic surgery reality shows present facelifts that require hospitalization, general anesthesia, and long and painful healing periods. Typically, the traditional facelift requires more than 4 hours to perform and 4 weeks for healing. It also requires extensive bandages and dangling drains. The widespread bruising and swelling make it uncomfortable for many people to leave their homes for weeks.
The duration of the results are variable and are highly dependent on the individual. If the patient has a healthy lifestyle, follows a good diet, exercises regularly and refrains from cigarette smoking and excessive alcohol, the results can last for more than 10 years.
