Beverly Hills Plastic Surgeon Pioneers New High Tech Face Lift Done Under Local Anesthesia Promises Quicker Recovery

Beverly Hills Plastic Surgeon Dr. Francis Palmer has pioneered a new high tech face lift procedure that is done under local anesthesia and requires only 3 days recovery time of a traditional face lift. Because the surgery is designed with minimal tissue dissection, it takes 1/5 of the operating time (90 minutes) and has 1/10th of the recovery time (3 days) of a traditional face lift.

Beverly Hills, CA, January 25, 2007 --( Dr. Francis Palmer, M.D., F.A.C.S , a leading Beverly Hills plastic surgeon, Head of Facial Plastics for USC, and founder of his own Beverly Hills plastic, cosmetic and facial surgery center, has developed the newest and most advanced cosmetic treatments in Hollywood.

Dr. Palmer’s CELEBRITY LIFT is the latest in cosmetic surgery for men and women. Developed for a celebrity who didn’t have a lot of time for a long recovery, the CELEBRITY LIFT can make you look 10 years younger in 90 minutes without undergoing general anesthesia. The revolutionary approach combines 3 procedures: a mini face lift, geometric-design neck lift, and Radiesse injections to sculpt the cheeks and jaw line.

According to Dr. Palmer, instead of 8-inch incisions on each side of the face, he is able to make small 2 – 3 inch incisions which helps eliminate bruising and swelling. Dr. Palmer uses either dissolvable sutures or facial glue, so there are no visible scars. Because the surgery is designed with minimal tissue dissection, it takes 1/5 of the operating time (90 minutes) and has 1/10th of the recovery time (3 days) of a traditional facelift.

Utilizing the “Palmer Beauty Principles” as a guideline, Dr. Palmer uses Radiesse injections to create more masculine or feminine cheeks. “Beauty isn’t esoteric. It can be defined and recreated,” said Dr. Palmer. “Our cheeks are where our true beauty rests and holds a whopping 75% of a person’s overall attractiveness. The eyes are the second most prominent feature determining 7-10% of a person’s attractiveness, while the lips come in a close third determining 5-7%,” continued Dr. Palmer.
