Dr. Niamtu Performing Facelift Incisions
The video below shows Dr. Niamtu making actual facelift incisions with Radiowave Surgery and also using a scalpel. Some patients desire to see actual surgical procedures, while it makes other patients uneasy, so only view the video below if actual surgical footage does not bother you.
Although there are many types of facelifts, Dr. Niamtu performs a multiple layer lift. This means that not just the skin is tightened, but the deeper layers as well. This type of lift is more technically difficult but the lift is superior, its results last much longer than skin only techniques.
The patient is sedated with IV anesthesia, and local anesthesia is used as well to decrease the amount of anesthetic drugs necessary. The local anesthesia also reduces blood loss and controls pain when the surgery is finished.
