Chicago Facelift Chicago Plastic Surgeon

Your lunch hour could be your fountain of youth.

Facial surgery is not the only alternative to facelift, says Rose Alcido. A non-surgical pain free alternative addresses the issue of facial sagging, wrinkled and aged skin.

New York, NY April 7, 2004 -- Who needs antiaging treatment when you are thirty and beyond and still blooms like a rose?

With the recent deaths of two famous people, novelist Olivia Goldsmith and Susan Malitz, after undergoing elective facial surgeries at the Manhattan Eye, Ear and Throat Hospital, is it worth the risk? Or, is there something out there that will not require surgery?

"One will not opt for the knife when we start taking care of our faces early on in life, that we know. However, for the late comers, celebrate, because there is something for you. Surgery is definitely not the only way out," says Rose Alcido. At age 20, you have the face you were born with, after that; you have what you have done to it. A unique, non-invasive,non-surgical, pain free alternative to facial plastic surgery is available, if you know where to get them and who does it for you. A combination of faradic, galvanic, microcurrent technologies and the miracle of lymphodrain, while a 100 per cent active ingredient in an ampoule form is introduced into the skin by galvanic current will take years off your face. Creepiness around the eye area is visibly eliminated and fine lines are ironed out. Because of its success, Rose Alcido says, this will no longer be New York City's best kept secret. Friends you thought came from a relaxing vacation or just had a good night sleep might have been doing this treatment without telling you. The effect is so subtle yet over time you will not regret the alternative you chose.

Ms. Alcido says that the reason why this antiaging treatment work is because when low electrical currents coming from different machines manufactured for different reasons are combined as one procedure and a l00 per cent active ingredient is applied, firming, toning and retexturizing of the facial skin happens immediately. This can only be done by an experienced, trained practioner.

A facelift is a surgical procedure to repair sagging, drooping, and wrinkled skin of the face and neck. It is performed to improve visible signs of aging, poor diet, or heredity; it is performed by removing excess fat, tightening underlying muscles, and redraping facial and neck skin.


Sagging or wrinkled skin occurs naturally with increasing age. Folds and fat deposits appear around the neck, and deep flexion creases form between the nose and mouth. The jawline grows "jowly" and slack. Heredity, poor diet, smoking, or obesity may contribute to early or severe skin problems.

A facelift can help repair some of the visible damage to skin, fat, and muscles and can restore a "younger" look. A facelift can be done alone or with nose reshaping, a forehead lift, or eyelid surgery.

While the patient is sleepy (sedated) and pain-free (local anesthesia) or deep asleep and pain-free (general anesthesia), the plastic surgeon makes incisions above the hairline at the temples, behind the earlobe, to the lower scalp.

The surgeon removes some of the fat tissue and loose skin, then stitches (sutures) the incisions closed. The fat tissue is called the SMAS layer and is the primary lifting portion of the facelift.
