For patients who want the absolute best possible result, look no further than the Ocean Drive Full Facelift. This technique provides comprehensive rejuvenation to the brow, upper and lower eyelids, cheek, lateral face, jawline, and neck. All patients also receive intraoperative volumization via structural fat grafting or with commercial dermal filler platform. Patients undergo intraoperative laser resurfacing for maximal results as well.
While this technique provides our most transformative results, it also requires more recovery time than our limited incision technique. Like all of our facelift techniques, SMAS tightening is the engine of the face and brow result. This procedure offers a true harmony between all zones of the rejuvenated face, as it addresses each component of aging.
The Ocean Drive Full Facelift undertakes a very wide, comprehensive undermining of the skin and SMAS. This wider area of surgery leads to a greater degree of lift and skin removal, but it also causes swelling. While bruising is uncommon following this procedure, patients can expect swelling for 1-3 weeks following the procedure.
