We have been performing face lifts for more than 2 decades under local anesthesia. There is no pain, no bleeding, using the Khawajas face lift anesthesia, and no hospital admission. Dr.H.A.Khawaja, pioneered several face lift techniques, performed safely, and painlessly under local anesthesia. These have been extensively published as articles, book chapters ( Simplified Facial Rejuvenation; Simplified Cosmetic Surgery, Dermatologic Surgery Journal, Cosmetic Dermatology Journal, International Journal of Cosmetic Medicine & Surgery ) and on-line. Examples are Delta-Lift, Transcutaneous Face Lift, Simplified S-Lift, Quick K ( Khawajas ) Lift, Modified Minimally Invasive Transcutaneous Face Lift ( MMITCFL ), Khawajas Thread Face Lift, Silk Lift, Prolene Lift etc.
There is no subsitute for experience. Face lift must be performed by an experienced Facial Plastic Surgeon.
