San Diego Facelift Before & After

When performed by a skilled plastic surgeon, facelift can help turn back the clock and make you feel like your true self again. Considered the gold standard in facial rejuvenation, facelift offers comprehensive results because it corrects various facial aging signs in the middle and lower facial areas. Depending on your needs, facelift can correct sagging skin on the cheeks and jawline, creases and wrinkles, jowls and hollowed out cheeks.

At True Beauty San Diego Aesthetic Surgery & Medicine, we pride ourselves in combining the latest surgical techniques with world-class patient care to help each patient achieve their unique facial rejuvenation goals. We invite you to learn more about how facelift can help you look and feel young again.

Are You a Candidate for Facelift?

You may be an ideal candidate for facelift if you have one or more of the following signs of aging:

  • Excess fat deposits underneath the chin and jawline
  • Wrinkles and fine lines on the middle and lower facial areas
  • Sunken or hollowed facial areas (e.g., cheeks, the area below the lower eyelids)
  • Loose, excess skin on the face, cheek and neck areas
  • Creases along the nose to the corners of the mouth
  • Displaced fat
  • Creases along the lower eyelids
  • Loss of healthy skin tone

Our plastic surgeon will meet with you individually to evaluate your facial structure and get a good understanding of your aesthetic needs and concerns. Depending on the information gathered, we may recommend you have facelift alone or in conjunction with other facial rejuvenation procedures such as neck lift. In fact, many patients choose to combine facelift and neck lift to achieve a more balanced and proportional facial appearance. During neck lift, loose, excess skin on the jawline and neck is removed, along with any unwanted pockets of fat. The remaining skin is tightened to smooth out noticeable neck bands or lines.

Facelift can also be combined with eyelid surgery, Botox or dermal fillers. All of your options will be discussed thoroughly in order to design the best treatment plan.

Procedure Details

Facelift is as an outpatient procedure, typically performed under general anesthesia. There are several approaches to facelift, and our team will use the method that best addresses your aesthetic needs and produces the least visible scarring.

Traditional facelift is performed using tiny incisions placed along the inside of the hairline and continuing down to the ears. Excess fat is removed while the underlying tissues will be repositioned to create more youthful and proportional facial contours. Lax skin will be excised and the remaining skin carefully pulled taut to create a smoother and tighter appearance. Our plastic surgeon is careful not to pull the skin too tight to avoid an “over done” or unnatural appearance. After all, the goal of facelift is to make you look like a younger version of yourself.
