Dr. Halaas’s Local Lift® is less involved than a full facelift and provides excellent results. There are fewer risks, and the procedure can be customized to lift sagging cheeks, reduce lines and wrinkles, and tighten the neck muscles.
About the Local Lift
The Local Lift is a minimally invasive procedure, similar to a mini facelift, that has become very popular among individuals who want to minimize the procedure involvement, yet want to see significant results that last a long time. This procedure earns its name because it can be performed under local anesthesia, which is a big advantage for patients who are concerned about anesthesia risks. The Local Lift is perfect for those who want to improve signs of aging on the face and neck, and achieve a natural-looking, younger, refreshed appearance. Dr. Halaas has over 17 years of experience as a board-certified facial plastic surgeon and has performed over 1000 lifts under local anesthesia.
Why choose a Local Lift?
Everyone has to contend with visibly aging facial skin. Along with the natural loss of elasticity, people will experience issues like wrinkles and crow’s feet around the eyes. The sun also does a lot of damage to the skin, as does smoking — and unfortunately, some people also inherit facial skin problems. As we age, our skin also begins to sag around the face and neck. Because of all these reasons, a Local Lift may be an excellent option.
