Rejuvenation via facelifts without the incisions.
For those looking to take years off of your appearance but don’t want the telltale incisions…the Serdev Technique of Suture Suspension may be the perfect choice for you.
Dr. Denise Graham trained with Dr. Nikolay Serdev, MD, PhD of Sophia, Bulgaria. Dr. Graham is proud to be the first MD in Louisiana to offer this safe and radical new procedure which has amazing results with little to no downtime. Dr. Serdev invented a better form of Suture Suspension, than the traditional “thread lifts”, “contour lifts” and “feather lifts”, which have a tendency to not offer the long lasting results that patients are desiring.
The Serdev Suture Suspension Lift allows loose skin and tissues, of the face/neck/eyebrows or other body areas to be lifted into a more youthful position. While traditional facelifts use incisions hidden around the ear to gain access to the tissues of the face, this new technique can be done through a tiny opening hidden in the scalp or elsewhere on the body. The use of absorbable and nonabsorbable sutures to anchor immovable fibrous tissue above the muscles enables Dr. Graham to provide the patient with scarless lifting of the face, buttocks, breast, chin and abdomen. The Serdev Suture Suspension is the latest innovation in minimally invasive plastic surgery procedures. Serdev Suture Suspension Lifts can help you to look years younger with a minimally invasive procedure.
