Our facial features can rapidly change as we age, leading to an altered appearance. The aging process can reveal our true age, making us look less youthful and vibrant than we feel. If you are experiencing this, the Vertical Restore® procedure can provide comprehensive and highly customizable solutions to help you regain your youthful appearance. This specialized approach combines traditional and deep-plane facelifting techniques while avoiding the negative effects commonly associated with these methods.
How Vertical Restore Improves Upon the Traditional Facelift
Dr. Amir Karam's patented facelift technique, Vertical Restore, departs from traditional or deep plane facelifts. Unlike a traditional facelift, which only addresses the jawline, Vertical Restore is a comprehensive and balanced approach that targets everything from the top of the temple to the neck, including the outer eyebrows, midface, jawline, and neck. This holistic approach is one of the reasons why Vertical Restore has such high rates of patient satisfaction.
A traditional facelift typically focuses on the lower two-thirds of the face and neck, using a horizontal pull of the skin towards the ears to reduce wrinkles and sagging in areas like the cheeks, jowls, and neck. In contrast, Vertical Restore lifts facial tissues vertically, counteracting the effects of gravity for a more natural-looking result. Vertical Restore also offers longer-lasting results than traditional facelifts, with effects that can last up to 10-15 years.
The incision designs used in the Vertical Restore procedure are carefully crafted to remain concealed, with no tension on the skin during the operation, to promote finer healing and minimize scarring. These incisions are strategically placed to avoid interfering with hairstyle preferences, whether you prefer to wear your hair up or down.
