Facelift San Diego

Review these amazing Facelift San Diego before and after pictures and find out why we were voted San Diego’s Top Plastic Surgeon.

The face lift or “rhytidectomy” has been in surgical practice for more than 100 years (1901 being the first documented face lift). Since then, many different approaches and techniques have been developed that can be applied to the specific needs of each Del Mar / San Diego facelift patient. Many face lift procedures are done in conjunction with other surgical treatments. Examples of complementary procedures are eyelid surgery or ear-pinning surgery.

Depending on the unique aesthetic needs of each facelift San Diego / Del Mar patient, a certain amount of facial skin might be removed, and the underlying muscle tissues might be reshaped. The muscle tissues may be tightened together with the skin, or they can be tightened separately. After the facelift surgery is completed, the skin is gently re-draped and sutured back in place.

Facelift patients normally undergo general anesthesia. Depending upon the extent of the procedure, a facelift may be performed under local anesthesia or a light general anesthetic, where you are lightly sleeping. In some cases, drainage tubes are left in place under certain areas of the skin for several days to reduce post-surgical swelling. During your consultation, each of these methods will be discussed and explained further.

At their state-of-the-art Del Mar cosmetic surgery facility, Drs. Batra and Camberos are pleased to offer an extensive array of leading-edge facial rejuvenation and beautification procedures. Over the years, they have treated numerous San Diego, Del Mar, Temecula and San Clemente facelift, eyelid surgery, otoplasty, brow lift and neck lift patients. They also specialize in nose surgery and are renowned throughout Southern California as foremost San Diego rhinoplasty experts.

Before & After Images

Facelift San Diego 1

This is a 57-year-old patient who felt that she appeared older than her true age. She shows all of the typical signs of facial aging, including lowered eyebrows, extra skin over the upper eyelids, the puffiness of her lower lids, as well as laxity in the jowls and neck areas. Her post-operative photograph was taken approximately eight months following surgery. You can see that it looks as if the patient has decreased approximately 15 years off her age. She has a very nice jaw and neckline. Her eyes also appear more open and the extra skin over her upper eyelids has been removed. There is now no puffiness of the lower lids. In addition, the area in between her eyebrows, which is very deep, has softened, because during the endoscopic brow lift, I was able to cut and remove approximately 75% of those muscles.

Facelift San Diego 6

This patient presented stating that she had done quite a bit of research prior to being evaluated by our practice for a face and neck lift. She wanted to have a very natural outcome and her primary fear was that she would look too pulled or tight. She underwent an endoscopic brow lift, as well as upper and lower lid blepharoplasties. We discussed the amount of extra skin in her lower eyelids and rather than taking skin out, we discussed performing, at a later date, some tightening of this skin with laser. My concern is always that if the patient has too much laxity of the lower eyelid or does not have sufficient cheekbone structure to support the lower eyelids, taking skin out will lead to the eyelid drooping over time.

This post-operative photograph was taken approximately three months after surgery. Overall, she is very pleased with her outcome. As discussed, our plan is to tighten up the skin of her lower eyelids through chemical peels and laser treatments.
