The Daylift™ was created by Dr. Phillip Langsdon over a decade ago. It lifts sagging skin and droopy muscles in the lower cheeks and jowls. Because the incision and treatment area is minimized with this technique, there is less bleeding, swelling, and bruising than a traditional facelift. Unlike other mini lifts, the Daylift is designed to support the skin, connective tissue, and muscle instead of only tightening the facial skin. Some face lifts can give an un-natural look, however the Daylift provides natural-appearing results and may remove 10 or more years from your appearance.
1. What is exactly is the Daylift™?
The Day Lift is an out-patient surgical procedure that repositions sagging cheeks and jowls and removes excess skin while tightening the connective tissue and muscle layer. It is a true “mini-lift” that provides natural-looking results with minimal bruising, swelling and downtime.
2. How is the Daylift different from a traditional Facelift?
Incisions are usually shorter, and the procedure is not as extensive as a full facelift.
3. How long does a Daylift last?
The excess tissue removed during a Daylift does not come back, but no procedure can prevent aging. Time before more treatment is needed varies between individuals.
4. Who are the best candidates for the Daylift?
Individuals with modest sagging of the cheeks and jowls.
5. Is the Daylift safe?
Doing procedures under local with twilight sedation may be safer than general anesthesia with gas.
6. Where is the Daylift procedure performed?
A licensed outpatient surgical center
7. What anesthesia is used for the Daylift?
8. How long is the downtime for the Daylift?
1-2 weeks if other procedures are not performed at the same time. Additional procedures such as a neck tuck would require 2 weeks light activity and no driving.
