The Gold Standard One-Hour Facelift

How can eye lid and face lifts compete in this era of noninvasive lunch-time procedures like Botox, fillers, Fraxel, IPL’s, and Thermage?

I’ve practiced facial plastic and cosmetic surgery at Atlanta-based Kim Facial Plastic Surgery center for nearly 15 years. Back in 1998, I offered Botox and collagen injections when they were considered cutting edge, but hadn’t yet received FDA approval. Today, I’m considered an expert in facial cosmetic surgery and minimally invasive procedures and see over 80 patients a month for Botox and fillers, such as Radiesse and Juvederm. I also offer various skincare lasers like IPL’s, Fraxel, Erbium, Q-Swith, etc.

Though I see benefits to these innovative products, I do not consider them a substitute for face lifting surgery, which is the gold standard by which every other procedure should be measured against. I often use Botox and Juvederm to complement the facelift, but when face lifting is not an option, due to health reasons or recovery times, these minimally invasive procedures can take the primary role in improving appearance.

I perform facelifts in my office under local anesthesia without the use of hospitals or outpatient surgery centers. I’ve now performed over 1,400 one-hour facelifts, which is my version of the modified face lift. The benefits of this procedure are many: no need for dangerous general anesthesia, no lengthy recovery, at a much less cost. This affordable procedure takes care of 90% of the jowls and neck turkey deformity that’s associated with aging. The one-hour facelift does not yield lesser results than traditional facelifts. It’s performed with the normal skin excision and permanent facial muscle tightening, but with much faster and easier recovery. It’s the “modern day facelift;” easy, safe, walk in-walk out, quick recovery, and of course lower cost!

The one-hour facelift procedure can be combined with other ancillary procedures like fat injection to obtain an optimal outcome. Face lifting is a two dimensional procedure. Replacing lost volume with one’s own fat (harvested usually from the abdomen) offers a natural way to enhance a youthful look. I have offered the one-hour face lift with fat injections now for over seven years and believe it is the best combination procedure for looking younger at any age. If you have a week or ten days to recover from a procedure, I promise you will end up looking 10 to 15 years younger.

Retaining your youthful appearance takes great genes and avoiding direct sunlight and smoking, but when natural aging results in sagging skin and a tired appearance, consult with an experienced qualified facial plastic surgeon to discuss your best alternatives. Whether it’s Botox, Fraxel, Thermage, a one-hour facelift or a combination of these different alternatives, we’d appreciate the opportunity to assist you.

Get Ready for Summer . . .
with Laser Hair Removal

~ 15% OFF by April 10th~

We're having a special on Laser Hair Removal, so our clients can get ready for summer and make unsightly hair a thing of the past...Forever.

Most people have heard of laser hair removal by now, but basically it's a medical procedure using an intense, pulsating beam of light to remove unwanted hair anywhere on your body. The light beam passes through the skin targeting the dark pigment in hair called melanin. The intense heat hits the hair follicle and destroys it instantly, so from that point on, no more hair is originated.

Effectiveness of laser hair removal depends on an individual's pigmentation, skin and hair type. Cost depends on the size of the considered area and the number of necessary treatments for optimal results. Laser hair removal is usually not a one-shot-deal, but rather takes a series of treatments.

We will meet with you and take a look at your specific hair removal expectations and come up with a plan that works for you. Call today and we'll get started, so you won't have to worry about the hassles of hair removal by swim suit season.

Book a consultation today and forget about shaving, tweezing, and waxing--No more unsightly razor stubble, red bumps, or infected ingrown hairs.

Call Today 770·458·4255
Receive 15% off entire treatment if booked by April 10th.

The elusive “Fountain of Youth” just may be within reach…
Thanks to Fraxel re:pair Laser Treatment

And the best part? One treatment ~ NO Surgery.
Fraxel re:pair is an excellent alternative to a facelift and can even help you avoid one later.

How does Fraxel re:pair work?
This breakthrough laser treatment not only tightens aging, sagging, and damaged skin, but it can actually prevent skin from sagging in the first place ~ And all without the risks, prolonged downtime, or adverse reactions of other procedures--Dramatic results and fast recovery. Who could ask for more?

FDA-approved Fraxel re:pair treats wrinkles, irregular texture, age & sun spots, and sun-induced redness. After just one approximate twenty-minute treatment, you’ll enjoy remarkable results like smoother, consistent skin tone and texture; softening of deep frown lines and wrinkles; and improved appearance of redness caused by sun damage. Treatment results are both immediate and progressive with tighter, softer, more even-toned skin. And the following 3 to 6 months after treatment bring even more improvement as deeper skin layers heal.

For more information about Fraxel re:pair call our Kim Facial Surgery office at (770) 458-4255 to schedule a personal consultation with me and we’ll see if Fraxel is right for you.

Face Lift

Dr. Kun,

I am interested in a face lift, but I'm concerned about the cost and time away from work. Is there an alternative to a full face lift that can provide positive results? Do you have samples of before & after photos that I can see, because some of the options I've seen online, sound "too good to be true." Though expense is a stumbling block for me, we're talking about my face and I don't want to be foolish in seeking a youthful look only to end up with an unbalanced or "freaky" looking mess.



Dear "Anonymous"

First off, your concerns are common, so though I sense your embarrassment by your anonymous inquiry, I assure you that you are not alone. We've completed countless procedures we call the "ONE HOUR MAGIC LIFT." This modified procedure is popular, because it is done under local anesthesia in about an hour or less and it has minimal recovery--which means less time away from work, friends, and family. One of the biggest benefits of the ONE HOUR MAGIC LIFT is the expense--the ONE HOUR MAGIC LIFT is significantly lower in cost than a traditional face lift.

You may have heard of similar procedures such as Quick Lift, Band Aid lift, S-Lift, Lifestyle Lift--The ONE HOUR MAGIC LIFT is my personal version of the modified face lift. I perform the procedure in my office under local anesthesia (light sedation can be given if desired). This procedure takes care of 90% of the jowls and "turkey neck" associated with aging. Depending on your situation, we can combine this face lift with other ancillary procedures for optimal results. One that I suggest is where we use your very own fat. The procedure has very positive results and lasts longer than injectable fillers. Basically, we harvest fat from your abdomen and micro-inject it into your face where needed, such as under eyes and naso-labial folds. Other procedures such as blepharoplasties can also be combined.

I've posted one before & after photo for your review, but check out my website for a number of photos from different clients who continue to enjoy their ONE HOUR MAGIC LIFT results...Plus, watch the video...and put your concerns to rest. Then, please give my office a call at (770) 458-4255 to schedule an appointment, so we can chat about your particular needs. I look forward to hearing from you and hope I've helped relieve some of your worries.

Dr. Kun Kim
