Question: My friend’s mom was telling her about a new facial procedure that was supposed to be amazing. I think she called it a Natural Vector? I’m wondering if you’re aware of what she’s talking about and what kind of surgery it is?

Answer:  It’s very ironic that you asked me about that because the system she was referring to is actually something that was developed in my practice.  The Natural (Vector) Facelift is a technique used to renew the appearance of the face in a manner that results in a natural, youthful look instead of a tight, obviously altered appearance.

This facelift method strategically tightens the underlying facial tissue in multiple directions (vectors), counteracting the sagging and laxity that occurs in the aging process. The muscles are returned to their original position then the skin is gently positioned over the muscle layers, resulting in a smooth and younger profile as opposed to the tight, stretched look seen after many facelift surgeries.

The Natural (Vector) Facelift is time efficient, taking only 2-2 ½ hours. The underlying muscle is handled with great care to minimize bruising and discomfort and to speed recovery. The majority of patients will be able to wash their hair within 48 hours, with the recovery period generally taking 10-14 days; this allows the sutures to be removed and the minimal bruising to fade. We tell our patients that they can return to work in 14 days safely and with confidence.

Most patients experience no pain after the surgery because of the gentle and proficient manner in which it is performed. Typically, nothing more than slight discomfort is experienced. Surgery is performed at a state-of-the-art out-patient surgery center with specialized staff and post operative care.This really is an excellent procedure if you are considering facial cosmetic surgery; you owe it to yourself to consider a Natural (Vector) Facelift.
