Surgical Facelifts and Hair Loss: An Embarrassing but Little-known Side Effect

Did you know that temporary loss of hair or slow hair growth is a potential risk of any scalp incision like that of a surgical facelift or browlift? In rare cases there may be no re-growth necessitating hair transplants.

At Epione we offer the non-invasive, non-surgical Sixty Minute Facelift, developed by cosmetic dermatologist Simon Ourian, M.D. “I think the idea of cosmetic surgery is becoming more commonplace and in our practice we understand that people don’t want to undergo major surgery that may entail significant risk or side effects. We focus our practice on minimally invasive techniques that can produce dramatic results, ” says Dr. Ourian, “and this treatment (Sixty Minute Facelift) has become known as a safe and fast alternative to surgical facelifts.”

The Sixty Minute Facelift treatment is performed without general anesthesia (it isn’t necessary), making it safer than a surgical facelift. Discomfort is described as minimal and appears to be especially effective for lines around the eyes and mouth. Skin texture improves and firming continues for several months after the treatment, resulting in subtle, natural rejuvenation.

Unlike conventional laser surgeries and surgical facelifts that can leave patients with undesirable scars and pulled, unnatural appearances, the result of the Sixty Minute Facelift is a “natural appearance with virtually no pain, ” explains Dr. Ourian.

Best of all, you get to keep your hair.
