Loss of Facial Volume, Optimizing Facelift results

Men and women who consider facelift surgery in Orange County often do so as gravity associated with aging causes laxity in the skin to develop, resulting in:

a) Jowls - drooping of skin that bunches along the jawline
b) Submental redundancy - fullness in the neck especially under the chin
c) Nasojugal grooves - hollowness stretching from the lower eyelids to the mid-cheek

Thus, patients express a bunching up of their tissues along the lower face and neck with simultaneous loss of volume in the mid and upper cheek. To optimize facelift results, Our Surgical Team uses:

1) Two separate layers of lift(the dual facelift) which promotes natural results by minimizing tension on the outer, skin layer
2) Fat grafting transfer from the neck to the upper cheek region

Using these specialized techniques, Our Surgical Team transforms an aged “spade: ♠” shaped face into a youthful “heart: ♥” shaped face. We encourage you to see whyOur Surgical Team is well regarded by his patients for natural and long-lasting facelift results.

Facelift Cost in Newport Beach

The cost of a facelift in Orange County can vary greatly from one cosmetic surgeon to another. One of the reasons for this cost variance is the surgeon’s expertise in lifting the drooping soft tissues and restoring loss of facial volume.

At Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Institute, Our Surgical Team utilizes the gold standard, Dual Plane, an approach that separately lifts the droopy skin and underlying soft tissue layers. He often makes an analogy to a properly made bed: you cannot pull the bedspread/cover without first tucking in the sheets first.

The same is true with a facelift. An experienced surgeon will leverage the lift drooping face and neck tissues on the underlying layer, thus avoiding tension and an “operated” look of the outer skin layer. In addition, Our Surgical Team specializes in the transfer of fat in patients who have lost volume by using a comprehensive analysis of facial volume losses as well as employing a “minimal transfer time” technique to optimize fat graft take.

The cost of the facelift can range widely due to the rising popularity of “mini-facelifts” or “quick-lifts” that in all actuality provide suboptimal results. These types of “mini-facelifts” generally cost around $6,000 to $8,000. In contrast, the gold standard, dual-plane facelifts in Newport Beach generally costs between $12,000 to $15,000.

We encourage you to consult Our Surgical Team prior to committing to surgery as he is well regarded not only for his facelift results but also for his reasonable facelift prices. We urge you to consider whether a couple thousand in savings would be worth a lifetime of poor or short term results.

If you look in the mirror and are unhappy with the sagging of your neck and the loose skin around your lower cheeks and mouth, then make a consultation with our expert facelift surgeon.

Facelift Before and After Photos

Our Surgical Team encourages all prospective facelift patients in Newport Beach to examine the surgeon before and after photos with a critical eye. Facelift surgery is designed to correct and restore the facial volume and contours altered by the force of gravity and aging.

Facelift surgery was not designed to make you look like a different or even deformed person. A good facelift does not leave a patient looking “pulled” or “operated” looking.

Please examine postoperative photos for:

a) Overall facial appeal
b) Appropriate healing of incision lines
c) Tightened neckline
d) Chiseled jawline
e) A natural, more youthful transformation of the preoperative image
