1. WHAT IS VISALYFT?

The Visalyft is an all in one facial rejuvenation procedure.  After consultation with Dr Esmail, he will determine what is required to help you turn back the clock and look 10 years younger.  The Visalyft will often combine multiple procedures and often includes Dr. Esmail’s signature deep facelift, upper and lower eyelift, lip lift,  fat grafting and skin resurfacing.  Using an advanced deep plane release, Dr. Esmail is able to more comprehensively and naturally rejuvenate the face. When using the appropriate techniques, even the most amazing and significant results can look natural and unoperated. This is the secret behind the deep plane facelift.

By releasing all the tethering points in the face and performing a comprehensive deep plane release, you can counteract the effects that gravity has incurred over the years. Since this technique involves release and repositioning as opposed to the suture pull typically used in the majority of other face lifts, there is a 0 tension incision line. Without a doubt, this provides a much longer lasting result without the scarring or irregularities potentially seen with other lifts more commonly performed.

The package also includes 6 months of aftercare, a comprehensive skin assessment and custom skin care product, and a lifetime VIP membership that give you 20% off any non-surgical product or service that Visage offers.
