If you look older and more tired than you wish, consider a facelift with one of our board certified San Diego plastic surgeons. Visible signs of facial aging are caused by a loss of skin elasticity and muscle tone of the face and neck, and any person over the age of 35 can experience this—though it is more typical for lax facial skin to become a concern starting in your 40s. For women, the process is likely to speed up after menopause. By your 50s it will be more noticeable, and no expensive skin creams will prevent or correct deepening skin folds or eliminate neck bands.

All You Need to Know About Facelifts

A lot of people don’t realize that facelifts are intended to target the mid and lower face. Thus, the procedure may be very desirable if your jawline is losing its youthful shape. Many patients also have jowls and deep creases between the base of the nose and the corners of the mouth, and horizontal neck wrinkles.

Since 1988, more than 32,000 patients have had safe, successful procedures at La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery Centre & Medical Spa.

If you believe you lack youthful chin and neck contours and are hiding your neck in turtlenecks as your profile becomes less defined, a facelift and neck lift may be the answer.

If you also have concerns about your upper face and eyes, your plastic surgeon will suggest a total facial rejuvenation (as shown in the patient pictured below). Browlift can address a sagging brow, while eyelid lift takes care of loose skin and bags around the eyes.
