Face Lift in San Diego
The Umansky Medical Center offers facelift surgery at our San Diego practice in order to reverse the effects of aging, gravity, sun and wind exposure, and daily stress. A facelift can provide excellent results for patients with excess skin on the neck and/or jowls. We do this by removing excess skin and fat, tightening facial muscles, and repositioning the facial skin. Many of our facelift San Diego patients undergo this procedure in combination with other facial treatments, such as a forehead lift (brow lift), eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) or rhinoplasty in La Jolla.
Our highly experienced Encinitas plastic surgeons carefully customize all facelift procedures to complement the unique bone structure, skin texture and overall facial aesthetics of each La Jolla face lift patient. Facelifts do not generally improve fine wrinkles, although excellent results can be achieved when a facelift is followed up with procedures that do improve skin texture, such as chemical skin peels.
Typical facelift incisions start behind the hairline at the temple, continue around behind the ear, and end in the hair behind the neck. The incisions are designed to be well-hidden. The skin is then separated from the underlying fat. This fat is contoured to improve the appearance of the face. In addition, our La Jolla facelift surgeons tighten the facial muscles as necessary and remove the excess skin. Finally, the skin is skillfully repositioned back in place and very small stitches are used to close the incisions.
