Facelifts and other facial rejuvenation techniques have been around for over a hundred years. Over this time 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-tomy), 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 may create jowls along the jaw line
  • Loss of muscle tone in the lower face may create jowls
  • Loose skin and excess fatty deposits under the chin and jaw can make even a person of normal weight appear to have a double chin

A facelift doesn't stop the aging process, but turns 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 age back to the preoperative condition.

Procedures often performed in conjunction with a Facelift to rejuvenate the face are Brow Lift, to correct a sagging or deeply furrowed brow, 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, cannot achieve the same results, but may help delay the time at which a facelift becomes appropriate and complement the results of surgery. 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.
