What Is a Scalpeless Facelift?
Facial features can have a significant impact on a person’s self-confidence. Saggy skin, hollow cheeks, and drooping around the jawline can make a person self-conscious about their appearance. When these issues are present, many people consider cosmetic surgery to lift and tighten the skin and define facial features. Before considering an invasive procedure like a facelift, people should consider a scalpeless facelift.
At Smile Montreal, Drs. Charles and Patrick Casey offer scalpeless facelift treatment to enhance facial features without incisions or sutures. A scalpeless facelift is personalized to meet each of our Montreal, QC, patients’ unique needs and provide results comparable to a traditional facelift.
What Is a Scalpeless Facelift?
A scalpeless facelift is a fully customizable procedure that combines a series of restorative and cosmetic dentistry treatments into one comprehensive treatment plan. A scalpeless facelift focuses on correcting issues related to the teeth, jaw, and bite that can affect facial features, particularly those of the lower two-thirds of the face.
Candidates for a Scalpeless Facelift
Many people do not realize the effect that the teeth and jaw can have on their overall appearance. The impact goes beyond the smile. Tooth size, dental issues, and malocclusion problems can make the smile look small, which makes the face look disproportionate. They can also create loose skin around the cheeks and jaw, making the face look sunken, hollow, and aged. Those of our Montreal patients with the following issues may be ideal candidates for a scalpeless facelift rather than a traditional facelift:
- Small teeth
- Buck teeth
- Tooth erosion
- TMJ disorder
Scalpeless Facelift Procedures
Every patient has unique needs. A scalpeless facelift addresses those needs by combining the cosmetic and restorative dentistry treatments that are best suited for the issues that are present. Depending on the patient’s oral health problems and aesthetic goals, a scalpeless facelift may include any of the following treatments:
- Custom mouthguard (to hold the jaw in proper alignment)
- Orthodontic treatment (to correct the position of the teeth and jaw)
- Porcelain veneers (to enhance the size and shape of the teeth)
- Dental crowns (to restore teeth with advanced erosion)
By enhancing the size and shape of the teeth, and correcting the position of the jaw, a scalpeless facelift can add definition to the cheeks and jaw and improve the appearance of loose, saggy skin.
Benefits of a Scalpeless Facelift
A scalpeless facelift offers several benefits that set it apart from a traditional facelift. Most importantly, a scalpeless facelift addresses dental and orthodontic issues that are often the cause of cosmetic concerns. In addition to improving facial proportions and definition, a scalpeless facelift improves the bite, supports healthy oral functions, and alleviates jaw pressure and pain. Other notable benefits of a scalpeless facelift include:
- Non-invasive treatment
- More affordable treatment
- Faster recovery
- Minimal risk of complications
