I met one surgeon that was scared to remove the lower bags. How would that look? Didn't make sense. With Time running out by chance I when to a new hairdresser, that had her eyes done and look beautiful. Even though Dr. had a busy schedule,he made it a point to fit me in for June 28th. I was assured my eye's would look beautiful by August 20th. Dr. Brackup was right. I had Upper and lower procedures done. Dr. sculpted my eyes to compliment my high cheek bones. They are beautiful. At 60 years old I look twenty years younger!! Dr. Brackup and his entire staff were kind and honestly the best experience I ever had. He is gifted with hands of gold. He only works from the neck up and is a oculoplastic surgeon. My confident's is through the roof. I walk with my head high for the first time in a very long time.

During/After the TREATMENT@headingTag>
A liquid face lift is a minimally invasive procedure which restores the 3-dimensional contours of the face, while softening wrinkles and folds. These advanced techniques utilize injectable sculpting products to fill in volume where is has been lost due to the aging process. No trip to the operating room, no downtime, astounding results. While not permanent, lasting results are achieved.
Treatment is designed to address an individual’s specific facial condition. Local anesthetic may be applied to ease the patient’s discomfort with the pricking from injections. The fillers are introduced gradually to spots needing treatment with fine needle. There may be swelling and redness on treated areas, mild bruising may also be present and these will fade after a few hours. There is no downtime with this procedure, but since it combines several injections, patients must avoid any pressure on the face area and strenuous activities are restricted.

Liquid Facelift FAQs@headingTag>
All products used are approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and backed with comprehensive testing. Prior to treatment, details of each product will be discussed and reiterated in the treatment plan. It is important to find a reputable injector who understands how to use each product so that a safe and effective outcome can be attained.
A liquid facelift is a combination of derma fillers, such as Restylane and Juvéderm, as well as muscle relaxants such as BOTOX or Dysport. These are injected directly into the areas that need reshaping, lifting and additional volume in order to reduce signs of aging. The products are commonly injected into the forehead to soften frown lines, around the eyes to diminish crow’s feet, into the cheeks, as well as the nasolabial folds or marionette lines. Some of these products are also used to enhance the appearance of the lips. The combination of products can take years off the facial appearance. The results following a liquid facelift are temporary, however, depending on the products used can last from 6 months to 2 years.
How Many Reinjections?@headingTag>
It depends on how long the patient wishes to maintain the achieved facial enhancement. Muscle relaxants, such as BOTOX, normally only last up to 4 months. Derma fillers can last anywhere from 6 months to 2 years. Injections are repeated when the practitioner and the patient feels its necessary, which is usually around the time the visible signs of aging slowly reappear. Even though some consider this a "high maintenance" way to maintain a youthful appearance, many patients feel that this outweighs the risks of invasive procedures such as a traditional facelift.
At the time of your consultation we can discuss the pros and cons of the multiple products currently available. A liquid facelift significantly helps in reshaping and regaining youthful contours of the face. Skin irregularities such as age or sunspots may be corrected with additional treatments that target the upper layers of the skin. Chemical peels, laser resurfacing, dermabrasion are some options to consider combining with the injectables chosen for treatment.
