Dr. Jeffrey Raval Pioneers New Method for Filler Facelifts

Denver, Colo. (PRWEB) April 10, 2010 -- As an injector trainer, one of a handful of surgeon trainers in the state, Dr. Jeffrey Raval has pioneered a new process to make the injections in this liquid facelift painless. He combines fast-acting lidocane, a numbing agent, with the injectable fillers, a practice that the FDA approved in 2009.
Injectable fillers are used on the face to turn back the clock, plumping up the face to look fresh and young, juicy even.

“I liken the face as we age to a grape that slowly over time turns into a raisin,” says Dr. Raval, who is a double board-certified facial plastic surgeon and otolaryngologist. He performs surgery on the head and neck only.

One of the greatest contradictions in aging is the loss of fat in the face while simultaneously gaining in the hips and mid-section. Well, there is a solution and it can take years off of one’s appearance, according to Jeffrey R. Raval, MD FACS. The answer is in combining diet and exercise for weight control to retain a firm mid-section with infusions of fat and filler in the face to keep it looking plump and, yes, juicy.

Of the two missions, the one that’s more painful and time consuming is definitely the diet and exercise piece. Dr. Raval explains that around the age of 35 (some studies suggest 30), the average woman loses 1/2 to 1/3 of a pound of muscle each year while gaining an equal amount in body fat. Each pound of body fat burns an estimated 5 calories per day while each pound of lean muscle mass burns approximately 50 calories per day. The result of carrying around fat vs. muscle mass is a drastically slower metabolism. A slower metabolism means weight gain, even when you don’t change eating habits.

“Keeping your physique young looking means an investment of time into regular workouts and it means relentless attention to caloric intake and healthy food choices,” says Dr. Raval, who fits a serious workout session into his busy life a minimum of three times weekly. “Keeping fit and trim as you age means giving up the burgers and fries you might have enjoyed as a teenager. Carbs show up on your waist and hips. Even diet sodas with artificial sweeteners can trigger the cephalic phase response—the sweet taste on the tongue stimulates the brain to eat and overeat.”

On the other hand, successful weight loss will most often result in the face looking thinner, even gaunt.

That’s because our bodies manufacture less natural collagen as we age. The skin loses its elasticity, jowls begin to droop and creases and wrinkles deepen.

At his clinic in Cherry Creek North, the upscale shopping and entertainment district in Denver, Dr. Raval performs several kinds of mini facelifts using a customized combination of facial fillers including Restylane®, Juvederm®, Hylaform, Perlane, Radiesse and collagen in combination with Botox®, Dysport® and PureTox®, three injectable products that smooth away wrinkles and creases by effectively numbing the underlying facial muscles that contract to make natural wrinkles and folds.

Using fillers, Dr. Raval is also able to correct aging jowls, filling in the areas that have receded to create a smooth jaw line, reinserting the definition that is seen on a much younger face. Additionally he can correct aging eyes by inserting filler underneath the lower eyelid where the eye begins to wrinkle and the tissue sometimes appears sunken. Filler plumps up the area, erasing lines and wrinkles and returns the eye to a much younger appearance.

The beauty in the injectable facelift, adds Dr. Raval, is that it can be performed in less than 30 minutes without general anesthesia in his office. The patient may experience a small amount of bruising, but there is no weeks-long recovery as in a traditional facelift.
