Facelift San Diego
Face Lift in San Diego
A facelift can 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. The Drs. Umansky do this by removing excess skin and fat, tightening facial muscles, and repositioning the facial skin. Many of our patients undergo this procedure in conjunction with other facial treatments, such as a brow lift, eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) or rhinoplasty.
All facelift procedures are carefully customized to complement the unique bone structure, skin texture, and overall facial anatomy of each patient. Facelifts do not generally improve fine wrinkles, although excellent results can be achieved when a facelift is combined with procedures that improve skin texture, such as laser resurfacing.
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 separated from the underlying fat, which is then contoured to improve the appearance of the face. Then the facial muscles are tightened as necessary, and excess skin is removed. Finally, the skin is skillfully repositioned and very small stitches are used to close the incisions.
