Seborrheic Keratoses are very common benign skin lesions that often start to occur during the third or fourth decade of life. They can develop almost anywhere on the skin and often have a “waxy” or “stuck on” appearance. They can be affectionately referred to as “wisdom spots” as more of them tend to occur with time and maturity. They have a large variation in color and can be anywhere from skin colored to dark brown or black.
Cryosurgery: The seborrheic keratosis is frozen off using a probe containing liquid nitrogen.
Electrodessication: The seborrheic keratosis is carefully destroyed using precise electric current causing heat only on the very surface of the skin.
Surgical Excision: The seborrheic keratosis is neatly surgically removed and the skin is sutured back together. In many cases, the seborrhic keratosis can be shaved off with no residual scar.
The Surgical Experience
Short Scar facelift procedures are performed under local anaesthesia with twilight sedation as an outpatient procedure in an accredited surgical facility. The length of the surgery will vary, but it generally takes between 2-3 hours. This surgery is considered an outpatient procedure. After surgery, patients will be dressed with a head wrap that is removed 2 days after surgery. There will be mild bruising and swelling of the face and neck. This will gradually improve within a few days. The scars associated with the short scar lift are well hidden within the curvatures of the ear and will fade over time. Most patients will need 1 week off work following surgery, and can resume full activities after 6 weeks.
Each facelift surgery is unique and will be tailored to each patient. Most patients can expect to pay $8,500-$13,000.

Non non-surgical procedures such as BOTOX®, injectable fillers, microdermabrasion, and chemical peels can assist in smoothing out surface wrinkles, improve fine lines and add facial volume. However, patients with loose skin, drooping jowls or a sagging neck will need to consider surgery if they want these features improved.
No. Short Scar facelift procedures are performed under local anaesthesia with twilight sedation, so the patient is comfortable throughout the operation, without the risk of general anaesthesia. All procedures are performed in an accredited non-hospital facility.
