Tuliplift™ - A surgical Facelift performed under local anethesia


Don't you wish there was a surgical facelift that could be performed entirely under local anesthesia??

In fact there is such a procedure and it was developed by Dr. David Rahimi about 17 years ago. It is called the Tuliplift™

Since 1999 Dr. Rahimi has performed dozens of these Tuliplift™ procedures completely under local anesthesia and with quite impressive results. (Occasionally Dr. Rahimi also uses a little injectable pain medication, such as Demerol, or muscle relaxer to make the procedure more comfortable.)

Tuliplift™ addresses both the sagging of the tissue, volume loss, and sun damaged and discolored skin.

Here is how Dr. Rahimi himself explains the procedure: I start by removing about an inch of skin from the front of each ear. If you just remove the skin the results are temporarily and the skin stretches back within about 2 to 3 years. In order to ensure a long-lasting results the muscle and deeper tissues are also tightened with permanent sutures Fatty deposit from the neck and Jowl area is removed using laser liposuction. This is followed by tightening the neck muscles surgically. The harvested autologous fat is spun down and injected back into the nasolabial fold and cheek area. (As we age the bones of the cheek and chin resorb and the face falls. Fat is used to lift the cheekbones to their natural state) No drains are needed and a light dressing is removed the next day. Sutures are usually removed 7 to 10 days after the procedure and at that point in time Dr. David Rahimi performs a fractional Mixto CO2 laser to reduce the appearance of the surgical scars and also to remove brown spots on fine lines.

I am often asked why I don't use General Anesthesia to perform my Facelifts. The answer is quite simple: general anesthesia has far greater risks than local anesthesia and my patients understand and prefer this way of doing surgery.
