Liquid Face Lift
Conventional surgery such as the classic face lift addresses skin laxity and wrinkles. However, major factors in aging are the generalized volume loss of subcutaneous tissues in the face, as well as bone loss from the skull itself. This combined volume loss contributes to skin laxity, wrinkles and hollowing. In many patients restoring lost volume with filler accomplishes significant rejuvenation without the downtime of surgery. Dr. Bomer has refined the liquid face lift to reverse age related volume loss and tissue drooping with minimal to no down time. She injects Botox, Dysport and fillers such as Perlane, Restylane, Radiesse and Juvaderm during a liquid face lift achieves this with a combination of fillers, Botox and Dysport. Her attention to detail in facial analysis coupled with her aesthetic eye and technical skill yield optimal results for her patients. As a Facial Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Bomer has unparalleled knowledge of the anatomy beneath the skin that non surgeon providers do not have. She also performs all liquid face lifts herself. Many surgeons focus only on surgery and delegate injections to their staff. Dr. Bomer is renowned for her skilled and artistic techniques in creating a natural, refreshed look. She has patients as far away as Monte Carlo who seek her out.
Patients are accustomed to planning months in advance for surgery - but aren't used to thinking that far ahead for injectables. As a team, we work to educate patients on reversing aging and maintaining rejuvenation – it’s not a 20 minute injection and you’re out the door. A new patient visit can last 2-4 hours and the liquid face lift appointment for 2-3 hours. Time is spent with photography, analysis and education. The amount of preparation and execution involved in a Liquid Facelift is comparable to a minor surgery.
Visualization - Dr. Bomer uses state of the art computer imaging to analyze each patient's face and determine the areas that need lifting and volume restoration as the first step. She rejuvenates the patient with computer modeling first, to ensure the best outcome. Photographic analysis with computer modeling is accepted as a standard for certain surgical planning, yet most injectors do not put an emphasis on pre-planning for injections.
Vectors - The fillers used for lifting the face are placed along specific vectors in the face that maximize the lift of tissue. There is also a specific order regarding which areas are filled in sequence to maximize volumizing and lift while maintaining a natural result.
Volume - To provide the best result, an appropriate amount of filler must be used to restore volume loss. Under filling is a common reason for sub optimal results. Overfilling in only one or two areas such as the mouth and lips also leads to an unbalanced look. Dr. Bomer often combines several different fillers such as Restylane, Perlane, Juvederm and Radiesse throughout the face to reverse aging while maintaining a natural look. The different fillers vary from each other in density, viscosity and longevity, which makes them optimal for use in specific facial regions. Depending upon the correction required, 4- 9 syringes of filler may be used during a liquid facelift.
Dr. Bomer is a faculty member with Medicis and Merz Medical and instructs other physicians in advanced injection techniques.
