SARASOTA, FL--(Marketwired - Feb 13, 2014) - The patented, state-of the-art SmartLift™ technique is offering an alternative to traditional facelifts, attracting patients who are hesitant about by the idea of having full surgery in their face, shying away from the thought of a hospital stay, general anesthesia and the long healing process. The SmartLift™ is a procedure that was developed for patients with issues such as fat deposits beneath the chin, folds and wrinkles of the neck, marionette lines or hanging jowls. The SmartLift aims at renewing the natural appearance of the face by utilizing the latest techniques in facial cosmetic surgery. While the beneficial results are the same of the traditional surgery approach, the recovery time is significantly shorter.
Dr. Alberico Sessa the cosmetic surgeon at Sarasota Surgical Arts in Sarasota, Florida, has been performing the modified facelift for the last seven years in his office. Using permanent suture he modifies and tightens the underlying muscles of the face as well as the platysma muscle of the neck, thus providing a long-lasting result with shorter recovery, less bruising and reduced downtime. A small scar is placed within the skin folds in front of the ear so as to keep it almost invisible and tissues of the neck and lower face are tightened and remodeled as necessary. The incisions and hence the scars are smaller than with traditional facelift surgery. Dr. Sessa has received raving reactions from his patients: "One of the things that people really, really like about The SmartLift™ during any facial cosmetic surgery procedures is that it's very easy to combine The SmartLift™ with other procedures."
But it is not just Dr. Sessa's expertise in his field that keeps patients coming back to his office, he is especially known for his caring commitment to each and every patient, starting with the first consultation through to the last checkup. That commitment was now honored through the 2013 Vitals Compassionate Doctor Award, which is part of the Vitals Awards & Recognition Program, where patients rate and review their doctors. Every year, hundreds of thousands of patients provide feedback about their doctor online. Patients rate their doctor on several components of care, including bedside manner, doctor-patient face time, and degree of follow-up. When receiving the award, Dr. Alberico Sessa was praised by Erika Boyer, Vice President of Vitals: "Treating patients -- not just the disease -- is what you excel at, and your patients appreciate the kindness you have dispensed along with your medical care."
