Natural- Looking Results – Facelift Surgery
Dr. Chugay’s technique allows the most natural-looking results to be accompanied by the fastest recovery possible. He has appeared in the news on multiple occasions, discussing this technique. Its various elements have been presented to other surgeons at multiple conferences around the world with the hope of teaching others how to produce a better looking face-lift.
HOW IS DR. CHUGAY’S VERTICAL FACELIFT DIFFERENT FROM STANDARD TECHNIQUES?
Unique Incision and Suturing Methodology in the Vertical Facelift
The following revolutionary techniques are included in the Vertical Facelift: the well-known behind-the-ear scar is altogether avoided by making the behind-the-ear cut inside the back of the ear short and extended into the back of the hairline to minimize the scar visualized post-operatively.
Natural Appearance of Hairline is Preserved in the Vertical Facelift
This is accomplished by creating small flaps inside the hairline. However aggressive or minimal your facelift needs to be, the flap technique in the Vertical Facelift will allow your hairline to be virtually unaffected.
Natural Appearance of Hairline Can Be Recreated in the Vertical Facelift
Many patients who have had prior facelifts suffer from partial or complete absence of sideburn hair. On many facelifts, the hairline is often raised. Dr. Chugay can correct these problems using the flap technique in the Vertical Facelift. A flap can be developed to bring forward and to recreate a normal hairline in front of the ear (from the temporal hair-bearing area of the scalp).

WHAT MAKES DR. CHUGAY’S FACELIFT VERTICAL AND WHY?
- A temporal incision is made in the horizontal plane, hugging the hairline. The vector of pull is primarily superior (up), rather than lateral (sideways). This creates the premise for the vertical facelift and leads to a more aesthetically pleasing result. Have you seen that well-known artificial stretched look on patients who have had a facelift? This is due to lateral pull. Unfortunately, most surgeons still prefer lateral pull, as it is easier to accomplish.
- The lining of facial muscles is sutured upward instead of posterior thus reducing the laxity of facial muscle.
- Less Risk of Hair Loss
- Hairline unaffected. Most surgeons make incisions in the hairline to avoid visible scars. However hairline cuts often cause hair loss, which, in turn can make the scars even more visible. Using the Vertical Facelift methodology, Dr. Chugay makes incisions at the hairline. Thus, the scar is hidden; yet, the hairline is unaffected.
- Dr. Chugay’s Vertical Facelift Technique is More Aggressive Than Standard Facelift providing lift in the areas of the lip and chin areas in addition to lift in the cheek and neck. Thanks to Dr. Chugay’s skill and use of specialized blunt dissectors in the areas of the lip and chin, he is able to provide lift in areas that are routinely avoided by other surgeons for fear of nerve and blood vessel injury.
