AccuLift™ Facial Rejuvenation
The following information about AccuLift™ facial rejuvenation is provided for Pasadena and Riverside area residents courtesy of Dr. Stewart Wang, a board-certified plastic surgeon.
As we age, gravity causes fat deposits to migrate downward in the face, creating under-eye bags, sagging cheeks and jowls, and loose skin in the chin and neck. For Pasadena residents wanting a facial rejuvenation option that's minimally invasive, AccuLift™ laser lipolysis removes unwanted fat deposits and tightens loose skin, restoring a more youthful appearance to the aging face.
AccuLift appeals to many patients and surgeons because it carefully balances the benefits of a non-invasive treatment with the benefits of surgery. Non-surgical treatments can have temporary and sometimes variable results; unfortunately, the surgical procedures that can achieve permanent, consistent results often require a lengthy recovery period. AccuLift, however, provides lasting, significant improvement without the discomfort or downtime of surgery.
AccuLift laser lipolysis can also serve as a perfect complement to other facial plastic surgery procedures and non-surgical rejuvenation treatments. Dr. Wang will work closely with you to customize a treatment plan specific to your facial characteristics and treatment goals.

What are the benefits of AccuLift facial rejuvenation?
AccuLift restores the aging face to a more youthful appearance by removing unwanted fat deposits and tightening loose skin. In contrast to other surgical facial rejuvenation treatments, AccuLift:
- Offers immediate results
- Requires minimal downtime
- Uses local anesthesia only
- Requires only one brief treatment
How is the AccuLift procedure performed?
First, Dr. Wang applies a small amount of local anesthesia to numb the treatment areas. Next, he creates small 1 to 2 mm openings at the edge of the treatment area. Through these tiny openings, the AccuSculpt™ laser removes fat and tightens skin.
How long will the AccuLift procedure take?
Most AccuLift procedures can be completed in less than one hour.
What can I expect after the AccuLift procedure?
Immediately after the procedure, the treated area will appear tighter and slimmer. Skin tightening is a gradual process, showing continual improvement over time. Best results are visible after several months. Because the procedure uses only tiny incisions and incision lines fade gradually over time, scarring (if any) is minimal.
What is the recovery period like?
The recovery period is relatively brief, typically with very little swelling or bruising. Patients can expect low levels of discomfort for the first 24 to 48 hours following surgery.
How long before I can return to normal activity?
Most patients are able to return to their daily routine within 2 to 5 days.
