Why let the years give away your age? Growing older does not have to involve looking old. The years, the elements, and stress work against us all to create wrinkles and sagging skin on the cheeks, jawline, and neck. You might be surprised to learn how many people have rejuvenated their face and erased years from their look across the globe and the nation, as well as nearby in Los Angeles, with face lift surgery.
See before & after photos of actual patients from Marina Plastic Surgery.
A face lift, or rhytidectomy, improves the appearance of the lower two-thirds of the face by tightening sagging facial muscles, smoothing wrinkled skin, and removing excess fat. This procedure is often combined with a neck lift for improvements under the chin.
The surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia, but can be performed using local anesthesia with sedation. Face lift surgery usually takes between 2 to 4 hours to complete depending on the extent of the procedure.
Face lift surgery provides lasting improvements that can remain for 5 to 10 years. After receiving a facelift Los Angeles patients often find that regaining their youthful look enhances their self-esteem as well as their appearance. Unfortunately, the procedure can’t stop the natural aging process. Factors such as skin elasticity, exposure to the sun, and lifestyle choices (such as, smoking and weight changes) can affect the longevity of your improvements.

Many of our Los Angeles Facelift elect to combine their procedure with other facial sculpting procedures, such as a brow lift, eyelid surgery, and rhinoplasty. Our patients with less advanced wrinkling and sagging can sometimes benefit from the less invasive mini face lift, which involves smaller incisions and quicker recovery.
