Simoni LiftDr. Payman Simoni is a renowned plastic surgeon for celebrities. He has received two certifications from the Board of Facial Plastic Surgery, as he specializes in the field of facial aesthetics. His clinic is based in Beverly Hills, California, and he is a go-to doctor for Hollywood’s celebrities. He has earned his place in Tinseltown’s roster of its top five cosmetic surgeons.

Backed with his expertise and extensive experience, Dr. Simoni has incorporated some of his own innovations in conventional cosmetic procedures, such as rhinoplasty (nose surgery), and face lift surgery. As a medical practitioner, Dr. Simoni focuses his efforts and energy into developing new techniques in the field of cosmetic surgery. He aims to make cosmetic procedures less invasive and a lot safer for future patients.

This is the case with one of the cosmetic doctor’s recently developed procedures; the Simoni Lift, otherwise known as the mini face lift.

What is a mini face lift?

Like the traditional face lift, the mini face lift aims to bring back the youthfulness in a patient’s face. It is a cosmetic stalwart against the ravages of time as it reverses the tell-tale signs of aging.

As a person ages, the skin tends to sag as it loses its supple texture because of sun damage, nutrient deficiency, toxin absorption (like nicotine from smoking cigarettes), and stress. The skin loses its elasticity and thus begins to look droopy. By undergoing a face lift procedure, signs of skin aging like the appearance of wrinkles can be eliminated.

How does it work?

The patient must first have initial consultations with their plastic surgeon. During the consultation, the doctor will assess how much fatty tissue has accumulated in the patient’s face and neck. The cosmetic surgeon will also examine the skin’s elasticity. Going through with the initial consultation is very important as it enables the doctor to plan out the procedure. The patient will also have the chance to raise any questions concerning the operation. The doctor will also explain the risks involved, and the total cost the patient should expect to pay for the surgery.

The mini face lift only takes an hour to complete. The plastic surgeon will make small incisions along the patient’s hairline and behind the ears. The doctor will then extract excess fat, and remove extra skin from targeted areas through these incisions. The operation should result with the patient having a more youthful look as the operation reduced any sagging on the face.

The mini face lift renders more natural-looking results as it aims to increase the skin’s natural elasticity.  Furthermore, what’s great about the Simoni procedure is that it only requires local anesthesia. This makes the operation safer, as compared to previous face lift methods. It also means less recovery time. Patients can return to their normal daily activities after 4-7 days of rest.

Another advantage of getting the Simoni lift is that it has long-lasting effects. Although the skin will eventually sag, it will take 10-15 years before the patient will need a follow-up procedure.
