Sarasota Surgical Arts Delivers Expertise in the SmartLift™ Procedure

SARASOTA, FL--(Marketwired - Feb 6, 2014) - Facial scars giving away your little beauty and youth secrets are now a problem of the past: The SmartLift™ is an innovative surgical technique and the latest development in facial cosmetic surgery, and addresses exactly this issue. The state-of-the-art procedure was especially developed for the face and neck and may be performed under local or intravenous anesthesia in a comfortable, safe environment. Compared to traditional procedures the surgical time is shorter, which results in less swelling, less bruising and faster recovery -- typically a few days to a week.

The full range of benefits can be enjoyed best when the intervention is done by an experienced professional. Dr. Sessa, a cosmetic surgeon at Sarasota Surgical Arts in Sarasota, Florida has performed over 800 of the SmartLift™ procedures in the last 7 years with an overwhelmingly high satisfaction rating. He has been consistently praised on patient satisfaction sites such as Google, Vitals, and HealthGrades.com. According to Dr. Sessa, the main concern of patients considering a facial lift is the placement and visibility of the scars. So it is not surprising that he takes great pride in bearing the news that by applying the SmartLift™ technique the scars will be much less noticeable than with traditional procedures. One scar is hidden underneath the chin, some scars will be around the ears, in well-hidden places and lastly, he makes use of the hairline. His explanation? "I found that if I create a certain scar, that the hair will actually grow through it, and it will become almost invisible after about a month to a month and a half. Then we turn the corner and sort of end the incision, and the scar ends right behind our ear lobe. That's pretty much the end point for the SmartLift™."

The SmartLift™ is especially targeted towards patients that exhibit many of the same indications for facelift surgery, but are looking for a less extensive surgical procedure with reduced recovery time than a full facelift. The results can be astounding, since it is suitable to fight a number of unwanted side effects of aging, such as: fat deposits beneath the chin, marionette lines, hanging jowls and folds and wrinkles of the neck. It generally is best for patients who show mild to moderate sagging and skin laxity in the lower face and neck. In cases with more advanced signs of aging in the face, patients are typically happier with their results if they opt for traditional facelift surgery. In an initial consultation, Dr. Alberico Sessa can help to determine which approach is the best for an individual patient.
