“Dr. Hendricks is amazing! From the consultation to the surgery and then the after care he doesn’t miss a thing. His attention to detail is what makes his practice surpass and shine above the rest. He has made me look 15 years younger and all the complements, they just keep coming and the best thing is they just can’t seem to figure out what it is, some think it’s my hair cut other want to know what make up I am using while other think it’s my foundation…… My new look is so natural yet impressive. I am so happy I chose him. His “down to earth” personality makes him so easy to talk to and puts you at such ease you’ll feel comfortable with your decision when you are ready to make that decision to choose your cosmetic surgeon. You will not regret it. No regrets….I have no regrets….. :-)”– J.S. / Yelp / Jul 08, 2015
“I have been seeing Dr. Douglas Hendricks since 2003 when he performed a full face lift then again in 2012 for Laser procedure & most recently in July of 2014 for scar revision surgery from a case of Shingles in 2013. Dr. “H” has always very patiently answered all my questions & thoroughly prepares you for the procedure & what to expect during the healing process. I would & have recommended him without any reservations.”– Anonymous / Office Visit / Aug 05, 2014

- A comprehensive facelift corrects all parts of your face at the same time. If only one part of your face is corrected, it could look really odd for that part to look 20 years younger than the rest of your face. We just don’t age that way and the result does not look natural. Yet most of the face-lifting that occurs by surgeons trained in the United States is designed to loosen and pull the lower third of the face slightly upward but mostly backward, at an angle of about 30 degrees. This “30 degree-pullback” as Dr. Hendricks calls it, stretches the tissue unnaturally over the facial bones in an odd direction mainly with the purpose of better hiding the scars. However this makes the face look thinner in the wrong areas and can even distort the corners of the mouth. This also leaves the entire upper 2/3 of the remaining upper face untreated, possibly still aged in appearance, and therefore out of balance with the lower third. This is why many people who have undergone this type of facelift are easy to identify in a crowd. The appearance is quite unnatural and sometimes even disturbing.
- It is physically impossible to tighten one part of the face without pulling or pushing on other parts of the face. You simply can’t properly lift the face without tightening the neck, and you can’t do a neck lift without tightening the face (an exception would be an isolated cheek lift on an ideal patient).
- It is economical. Returning to have additional areas corrected after an initial procedure in a single area resulted in an imbalance of the face is more expensive than having every area of concern corrected at one setting. Many times patients that try shortcuts by doing less end up paying more in the end to have everything done that is needed to rejuvenate with balance and completely natural results.
- Dr. Hendricks will use his almost 25 years of experience in perfecting this procedure to give you the best results. Dr. Hendricks, in his professional opinion, can make the judgment calls needed to improve areas that should be improved but at the same time leave areas alone that don’t need rejuvenation.
