At Alexander Cosmetic Surgery in San Diego, facelift is our specialty. The procedure that keeps 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 than any other plastic 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 facelift procedure using minimally invasive surgery techniques.

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:

  • Sagging in the cheek (midface)
  • Deep creases below the lower eyelids (tear trough)
  • Deep creases along the nose extending to the corner of the mouth (nasolabial folds)
  • Fat that has fallen or is displaced that creates jowls along the jaw line
  • Loss of muscle tone in the lower face that creates jowls
  • Loose skin and excess fatty deposits under the chin and jaw that can make even a person of normal weight appear to have a double chin

A facelift in San Diego 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 San Diego 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.
