The following material contains graphic images of an actual surgery that may be disturbing. Parents are advised that these images may not be suitable for young children.
Over 120,000 people in the United States got facelifts last year alone. There are many people who would like a more youthful look but the long painful recovery along with having to go under general anesthesia for surgery deters some. There may be hope for those people with a new procedure that avoids all of this and actually works using human glue!
Plastic surgeon Dr. Payman Simoni takes us into the operating room as he performs this procedure on his patient, Maris. You can see Maris is awake while Dr. Simoni performs her facelift!
Afterward, Dr. Simoni joins The Doctors to further explain his procedure. He says unlike a traditional facelift which can take 5-6 hours under anesthesia, this is quicker and the patient being awake allows him to use their facial expressions as a guide for more natural results. The glue he uses is a biological glue that is made from proteins found in human plasma. These proteins are the same ones that act as a clotting factor in our bodies. While it usually takes three weeks for the skin to close up, this glue takes only 3 minutes!
The Doctors share Maris’ before photo and then she joins them on stage to show off her results! Maris says she is “kissing 69 years old” and she seems thrilled with how she looks. She says she was scared prior to the surgery but she was given a shot to calm her down and then she felt “blissed out.” She says the procedure was really not bad at all and as you can tell by her smile, totally worth it!
