Facelift Using Glue?! – The Super Glue Facelift By Dr Payman Simoni
There were over 120,000 people in the United States that got facelifts over the past year alone. There are many people both male and female who would like a more youthful look but the idea of a long painful recovery with the risk of having to go under general anesthesia for surgery scares off some people. However, there may be hope for those few with a new procedure Dr Payman Simoni created that avoids all of these fears and actually works using human glue!
Plastic surgeon Dr. Simoni takes us into his operating room at his practice Simoni Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills, California. Where he performs this procedure on his patient, Maris. Under only general anesthesia, you can see Maris is awake while Dr. Simoni performs her facelift!
Afterward, Dr. Simoni joins “The Doctors” to further explain the super glue facelift 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 Dr. Simoni 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!
