Our facial features can change rapidly as we age, altering our appearance. The aging process can reveal our actual age, making us appear less youthful and vibrant than we feel. If you are experiencing this, the Vertical Restore® procedure offers comprehensive and highly customizable solutions to help you restore your youthful appearance. This specialized approach combines traditional and deep-plane facelifting techniques while avoiding the negative effects of these methods.
How Vertical Restore Works
Vertical Restore is a lot more than a catchy name. This procedure that Dr. Karam carefully created, perfected, and trademarked is a unique surgical procedure, thanks to its ability to address the entire face and not just a portion.
Dr. Karam uses a deep plane approach to address the jawline and midface by releasing the facial ligaments that hold the face in its aged position, thus allowing the tissue to be elevated and repositioned without pulling against those ligaments. This is why the effect of Vertical Restore is so massive and why, despite the significant changes, the results look neither tense nor "pulled back." This release is crucial because it determines the extent of repositioning that can be achieved and the durability of the outcome.
Because Vertical Restore incorporates a deep-plane approach, it offers the most advanced yet reliable method for lifting the face and neck by extending far beyond traditional deep-plane lifts while focusing on full neck correction. This is also why Vertical Restore creates results lasting 10 to 15 years, effectively three times longer than what one might enjoy after a traditional facelift.
Finally, Vertical Restore is performed under local anesthesia with IV sedation, which is much safer and has a significantly shorter postoperative recovery time.
