Our Mini-Facelift: The Langsdon DayLift
The DayLift is an innovative mini facelift technique designed to improve sagging cheeks and jowls. This one-hour procedure may remove years from your appearancein a single sitting. The DayLift is a true mini-facelift that supports the skin, connective tissue, and muscles instead of only tightening the facial skin. The DayLift mini-facelift provides natural-appearing results with less bruising and swelling than more extensive procedures. General Anesthesia is not needed and most patients return to light activities much sooner than with a full-lower facelift. When all you need is a mini-lift, the Langsdon DayLift mini-facelift may be right for you.
Although the results can sometimes be dramatic, the DayLift cannot produce the results of a more extensive facelift. It cannot remove asymmetries, wrinkles, or stop the aging process.It cannot improve an extensively sagging or fatty neck. Dr. Langsdon developed the DayLift mini-facelift for the patient who needs only minimal improvement of the cheeks and jowls or who might not want a full-lower facelift.
At the Memphis-based Langsdon Clinic, we will frankly tell you IF you are a candidate for a DayLift (mini-lift). Some people have too much sagging to benefit from a mini-facelift and other procedures might be needed and recommended.
At the Langsdon Clinic, we have years of experience with the DayLift (mini lift) as well as thousands of full facelifts, rhinoplasties (nose job), baggy puffy eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty), skin improvement, fillers, Botox®, etc. We will provide our advice regarding what we feel is your best course. We are not here to “sell” you some advertising gimmick. We are going to provide you with the facts and our opinion, and we will do our best to achieve the best possible results in your particular situation. If a mini facelift is not right for you, we will be upfront with our assessment.
An important distinction from those “lifts” advertised on the TV or Internet is “where your surgery is done”. The DayLift is done in a State Licensed Outpatient Surgical Facility (licensed by the State of Tennessee Department of Health). It is important to note that many of the TV and Internet advertised “mini lifts” are often done in a doctor’s office that is nothing more than a simple room in a commercial office space (not a state licensed surgery center with the Department of Health construction standards, backup safety equipment, state monitored policies, procedures, etc. up to State Licensed Surgery Center standards). Some don’t even have a CRNA or Anesthesiologist present.
The anesthesia for the DayLift mini-facelift is local with monitored sedation; making the procedure extremely pleasant. Our IV sedation is provided by a Board Certified Anesthesiologist in our State Licensed Outpatient Surgical Facility (ASC) under full monitoring.
Dr. Langsdon is a board certified Facial Plastic Surgeon (www.AFFPRS.org). He also completed a full one-year fellowship of additional training in facial plastic surgery under the auspices of the American Academy of Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery (www.AAFPRS.org) “official” fellowship program. This is the only practice in Memphis/Mid-South that has AAFPRS fellowship training, practice limited to facial plastic surgery, and is board certified by the American Board of Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery.
