Facelift Techniques

SMAS Facelift

The SMAS facelift method may be selected for patients that are interested in traditional facelift surgery. It works by tightening the tissue that lies between the facial skin and facial muscles.

Deep Plane Facelift

The underlying muscle and skin remain attached to the underlying fascia as it is repositioned and lifted. Dr. Hendricks will select the facelift method that is most appropriate for your individual facial aging concerns by drawing on his many years of experience as a triple-board certified surgeon.

Non-Surgical Facelift

Non-surgical facelift alternatives may include the use of dermal fillers, which provide temporary, but long-lasting, correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and loss of facial volume that occurs due to the aging process. Pacifica Cosmetic Surgery Center in Newport Beach, CA is pleased to offer a diverse range of facial fillers, including top brands such as Restylane and Juvederm. For expression lines on the upper third of the face, Botox injections (a cosmetic muscle relaxant) may be indicated.

What Are The Benefits Of A Facelift?

By blending facial feature corrections and anti-aging techniques into one comprehensive procedure, Dr. Hendricks offers his patients some notable benefits. First, he ensures they love their results. All too often, our Newport Beach facelift patients know they want to change something about their face but they can't quite put their finger on the issue itself.

Taking a comprehensive approach allows Dr. Hendricks to correct any issues so the result is a transformed, rejuvenated appearance rather than a change in a single area that might not blend seamlessly with the rest of the face.

As a triple-board certified plastic surgeon in Newport Beach, Dr. Hendricks has helped many patients gain a more youthful appearance through facelift surgery.

Choosing a facelift can be a more cost-effective option long-term. It's more affordable to bundle all of the procedures you want in a single surgery, rather than to receive them individually over the years.

Facelift Vs. Mini Facelift

A mini facelift provides a subtle lifting effect to correct early signs of advanced facial aging, while the full facelift is designed for the correction of moderate to severe facial aging. The mini facelift scars are smaller in size and quantity than traditional full facelift surgery. A full facelift’s effects tend to last longer than a mini facelift, an average of 10 years and 6 years respectively, though this may vary based upon the patient’s individual rate of aging.

The Right Age for a Facelift

Many patients start considering a facelift around age 40 and beyond when signs of facial aging begin to result in moderate facial skin sagging and wrinkles. Regardless of age, Newport Beach plastic surgeon Dr. Hendricks is committed to ensuring you achieve a fantastic result, whether you are in need of a mini facelift procedure, standard facelift, or a combined procedure.
