Liquid Facelift

Introduction to

Liquid Facelift

intro-liquid facelift
Over years, your face begins to lose collagen, elastin, and fat. This contributes to deflated, sagging facial features and an overall aged appearance. The loss of facial volume and elasticity also leads to the formation of wrinkles, creases, folds, and hollows. Recent advancements in technology have made it possible to lift and contour one’s face gently and without surgery in an outpatient setting. Plastic surgeon S. Larry Schlesinger, MD, FACS’s advanced techniques in the combined use of injectibles such as BOTOX® and layering of fillers will restore lost volume, shape, texture, and position to the face. This comprehensive and unprecedented approach to treating sagging facial features is called Liquid Facelift. You’ll need to meet with S. Larry Schlesinger, MD, FACS to discuss your options and find out if the Liquid Facelift is the right choice for you. We offer treatments in all of our Hawaii facilities: Honolulu/Oahu.

What is a Liquid Facelift?

A Liquid Facelift is a non-surgical procedure that allows for full-facial rejuvenation using a singular or combination of Dermal Fillers and Injectables to strategically lift portions of your face.

Dr. Schlesinger has extensive experience with advanced fillers. Juvederm Ultra, Juvederm Ultra Plus, Restylane®, Perlane®, Radiesse®, and Sculptra® are artfully used to sculpt the face by replacing lost volume due to fat and bone loss. He often chooses a combination of fillers with varying characteristics to best shape each face. He can diminish or correct such problems as drooping eyebrows, dark under-eye circles, sunken areas from under the eyes to the cheek, frown lines, flat cheeks, weak chin, jowls, jawline hollows, and scars. These next-generation dermal fillers provide longer-lasting and more natural results. All of the products used are FDA-approved. For more information on our Injectables and Facial Filers, please read their respective pages on our website.

Some of the more common treatment areas include:

  • Below the eyes
  • Cheeks
  • Eyebrows
  • Forehead
  • Jowls
  • Temples
  • The area between the lips and nose
  • If you have any scaring, fillers will also be applied

What are the Benefits of a Liquid Facelift?

Compared with traditional surgical methods, the liquid facelift method eliminates the need for anesthesia, surgery, stitches, and scars. There’s no risk of infection, bleeding, or hematoma, it’s less expensive and more natural. Best of all, there’s no downtime whatsoever! Some of the additional benefits Dr. Schlesinger has seen our Hawaii Liquid Facelift patients enjoy from their treatment include:

  • Creates a more youthful appearance
  • Customizable
  • Fills out hollowed-out under-eye appearance
  • Gives you fuller cheeks and a beautiful lift
  • Improved plumpness to the face
  • Smoothes wrinkle around the lips, eyes, and forehead
  • Virtually painless

Who are the Best Candidates for Liquid Facelift?

You could be a great candidate for a Liquid Facelift in Hawaii if you are:

  • Are interested in alternatives to surgical procedures
  • At an age where you don’t “need” a Facelift, but are showing signs of aging (usually between 35 and 50 years old)
  • Have loose facial skin and wrinkles
  • Maintain a positive mentality with realistic expectations

First Steps

What’s the First Step?

The first step in getting a Liquid Facelift in Honolulu, Hawaii is to schedule a consultation at Mommy Makeover Hawaii. During your appointment, you will meet with Dr. Schlesinger or a member of our Aesthetics team, where you will be able to ask any and all of the questions you may have and express your treatment goals. You will receive an examination of your face followed by a discussion of your options for different types of fillers that can be used. You will also be asked some questions regarding your medical history, so it’s important to be open and honest when talking about your history so that any unnecessary risks or side effects can be avoided. Finally, your treatment plan will be made, and if you agree with it, you can have your procedure performed immediately following your consultation. If you would like to reschedule for another day for any reason, our Patient Coordinator will help you select the best day and time for your treatment.


What to Expect on the Day of Liquid Facelift

When you come into our office for your Liquid Facelift, you will be able to make yourself comfortable in our reclining chair. A topical anesthetic will be applied to the targeted areas to numb your face during the treatment, and your provider may begin plotting out the points with tiny marks where they are planning to make the injections. Once the two of you are ready, the specific dermal filler decided upon during your consultation will be used to enhance your target areas.

Once the filler has been inserted, you will be gently massaged to move the filler around so it’s evenly distributed, which will then be assessed, adding more filler when necessary. Once you are finished, your face will be gently cleaned off and any markings will be removed. You may also receive an ice pack to lightly apply to your face to minimize any excessive swelling or bruising.

Liquid Facelift Recovery

When you are finished with your treatment, you will be able to leave and continue your normal routine, but we like to recommend using the rest of the day to relax and avoid any activity that could accidentally move the filler around. We will provide you with instructions that should help you make the most of your treatment, which includes the proper technique to lightly massage your face. You can expect some bruising and redness, but this should heal on its own within a day or two. Once the swelling goes away, you should be able to see immediate results.

What is the cost?

How Much Does Liquid Facelift Cost in Hawaii?

The cost of a Liquid Facelift in Hawaii is based on several factors, including which dermal fillers and/or injectables you use and how much is needed to achieve your goal. After coming in for your consultation and your treatment plan is created, our Patient Coordinator will provide you with a price breakdown for your treatment.

    By far the best plastic surgeon, I mean his work is Hollywood perfection. Day 1 post-op I looked in the mirror and couldn’t believe my eyes, Dr. Schlesinger completely transformed my body. I was already 100% satisfied with my body even with all the swelling. He’s very dedicated to his work and enjoys changing people’s lives. His staff is very sweet and professional. Thank you for all that you do!

    Being a man and having gynecomastia can be very embarrassing but his office and staff always made me feel very comfortable about the procedure that I needed to have done. It’s been a few months since my surgery and I’m very happy with the results, I can no longer feel embarrassed about taking off my shirt or going to the beach. The psychological relief has made all the difference in the world. Thank you Dr Schlesinger.
