What is a Facelift?

If sagging skin, jowling, and deep wrinkles are a major concern for you, dermal fillers, fat grafting, and laser procedures may not do the trick alone. A facelift, however, is a very popular procedure that works to remove the excess skin of the face and neck, giving you back the more youthful facial contours that you want. Here at California Skin Institute – Los Gatos Downtown, we specialize in the facelift procedure with the emphasis of achieving the most natural results.

A facelift provides an overall lift to the lower third of your face and neck while also providing a mid-facelift — all in one procedure. Compared to a traditional facelift, this is a quicker procedure associated with a quicker recovery. This procedure has been successfully performed on patients ranging in age from 40-87 years old!  The surgeons at California Skin Institute – Los Gatos Downtown have performed thousands of procedures and have also trained many surgeons, including those at Lifestyle Lift™,  throughout the country in the art of minimally invasive techniques without the need for general anesthesia.

How is a Facelift Performed?

Typically, the facelift procedure can be performed in one to two hours without the need for general anesthesia.  However, a facelift is typically combined with neck contouring procedures in those patients who would benefit from additional neck procedures.  This procedure can make a dramatic change in the way you look by tightening sagging muscles and skin of the cheeks, jowls, and neck (“turkey neck”).  In contrast to traditional facelift procedures, all patients who undergo the Neck & Facelift appear natural. Results are long-lasting because there are no shortcuts taken (this is a SMAS lift – anything less is not worth your time or money). The procedure can often be complemented with Fat Grafting or Juvéderm, Restylane, Perlane, Radiesse, Artefill or other Fillers to re-volumize the areas of the face that are sunken and deflated and have essentially lost volume.  Fat Grafting or Fat Transfer removes fat from one area of the body and transfers this fat into the face to yield an enhanced harmonious and well-balanced appearance.

Also known as a rhytidectomy, your facelift will begin with an incision that is strategically hidden in the hairline and in the crease in front of the ear. In addition to repositioning and tightening underlying tissues / muscles, excess skin will be removed, and the remaining skin will be re-draped to give it a very natural, more youthful look.

California Skin Institute surgeons are some of the first surgeons in the country to perform laser facelifts!  The use of the laser during a facelift procedure provides superior skin tightening, neck contouring, and helps to minimize bruising.  Like the SmartLift or SmartLifting™ , the Ultra Mini Incision Laser Facelift can be an ideal option for those candidates who wish to have an even more minimally invasive procedure without having the typical incisions associated with a facelift.  Please be sure to ask us about this procedure to determine whether you are a candidate for this procedure.

Traditional deep-plane facelift procedures are also performed by California Skin Institute surgeons upon request.  Additionally, patients can undergo their procedures under IV sedation or full general anesthesia upon request.

How Do I Know if a Facelift is Right for Me?

The facelift procedure has been performed on patients ranging in age from 40 to 87 years old. So no matter what age you are, it’s possible to take years off your face by removing excess, sagging skin. A facelift is not however, a solution for fine wrinkles in the skin. If that is your concern, you may benefit from laser resurfacing, dermal fillers, or other non-invasive procedures.

Patients may also be excellent candidates for the Ultra Mini Incision Laser Lift which addresses primarily the neck area.  This procedure is ideal for those patients who do not wish to have the typical facelift incisions but would rather have an incision with a total length of approximately one inch!  Please ask us for more information about this revolutionary procedure during your in-person consultation.

What are Typical Facelift Results?

The facelift procedure can make a dramatic change in the way you look by tightening sagging muscles and skin of the cheeks and jowls while also creating a youthful look in the cheekbone areas.  Our Bay Area / San Jose facelift patients have reported phenomenal results, as they look and feel years younger in a natural way.  In contrast with traditional facelift procedures, all patients who undergo the facelift procedure in San Mateo appear natural. Results are long-lasting, and can be viewed in our facelift before and after pictures. For best results, the procedure can often be complemented with fat grafting or FDA-approved fillers to volumize the areas of the face to provide a more harmonious and well-balanced appearance.

What are Facelift Costs?

Facelift costs vary from patient to patient. You may even decide to have another procedure in conjunction with your facelift to improve the results which will ultimately affect pricing. We recommend scheduling your complimentary consultation with one of our surgeons so you can discuss your goals in detail. Call us today and we would be happy to assist you.
