FACE & NECK LIFT OVERVIEW
At Alexander Cosmetic Surgery, we specialize in facelift procedures that keep your face looking younger and vibrant, and we've refined our skills to achieve a more natural result. Your friends may not even be able to tell that you had facelift surgery!
As San Diego’s leaders in facial plastic surgery, Dr. Alexander and Dr. Alexander II have a reputation for meticulous attention to detail, quick healing times, and most important, natural results. As leaders in facial rejuvenation, we have performed more facelifts that any other surgeons in San Diego.
Alexander Cosmetic Surgery also is able to perform neck lift surgery. Each person is different, and sometimes your neck can show age even before your face with loose muscles and skin - causing the "turkey waddle" or neck "bands." A neck lift can enhance the appearance of your neck making the skin and muscles tighter. A neck lift is often performed as part of a face lift procedure using minimally invasive surgery techniques.

UNDERSTANDING THE PROCEDURE
Facelifts and other facial rejuvenation techniques have been around for over a hundred years. Over this time period, procedures have become more advanced, offering more and more options to those who want to look younger and more vibrant as they age.
If you are bothered by the signs of aging in your face, a facelift may be right for you. Also called rhytidectomy (rye-tid-ek-tuh-mee), a facelift is a surgical procedure to improve visible signs of aging in the face and neck, such as:
A facelift doesn't stop the aging process but will “turn back the clock” on your face and age. Once healed, the face continues to age at a normal pace. If you look ten years younger after a facelift, it will take about ten years or more for your face to return to the preoperative condition.
Procedures often performed in conjunction with a facelift to further rejuvenate the face are a brow lift, to correct a sagging or deeply furrowed brow, an eyelid lift to rejuvenate aging eyes, and chemical or laser peels to smooth sun-damaged skin.
A facelift can only be performed surgically; non-surgical rejuvenation treatments, such as peels or fillers, are unable to achieve the same results. However, they may help postpone the time at which a facelift becomes appropriate. Thread lifts, also known as feather lifts and contour lifts, have proven to be very ineffective because no skin is removed. These procedures have not stood the test of time and have essentially been abandoned.
