A facelift is a surgical procedure that improves your facial and neck appearance due to aging in the face and neck. This is done by tightening muscles and deep tissues to smooth the lines on your face and reshape your jawline and neck. Also known as rhytidectomy, a facelift in San Diego can solve signs of aging caused by sagging of the skin, jowls that have developed in the cheeks and jaw, loose skin in the neck (often referred to as a "double chin" or "turkey wattle") and deepening of the fold lines between the nose and the corner of the mouth.
Extended Deep Plane Face and Neck Lift Before and After- Dr. Malone performed her extended Deep Plane Facelift with Necklift (Platysmaplasty) for this patient. This procedure is a shorter incision technique that can result in powerfully natural results to lift the cheeks, tone the jawline and tighten the neck. As we age the lower face starts to feel widened and heavier, resulting in a more square face shape that can feel masculinizing to many women. Lifting the muscles and cheek fat pads as well as reducing the redundant buccal fat pads will recreate a more tapered lower face shape, recreating the heart shaped face that we associate with feminine youth. We are absolutely floored by this lovely patient's naturally beautiful transformation.
Extended Deep Plane Facelift Before and After - Dr. Malone performs her signature Extended Deep Plane Facelift with Platysmaplasty for those patients who desire to have their cheeks lifted, jawline toned, and neck tightened up as well. Our patient sent us her own before and after selfies showing how the facelift procedure will lift and support the cheeks and nasolabial folds, smooth the jawline and also tighten the neck. While this patient looks more youthful we love her naturally refreshed outcome.
Facelift Before and After - To complete this full facial rejuvenation, Dr. Malone performed an Extended Deep Plane Facelift, Platysmaplasty, Lateral Temporal Brow Lift, Lower Eyelid Lift with Fat Repositioning, and a Lip Lift with a Lip Plumping Graft. This comprehensive facial rejuvenation has her looking 15 years younger. She took a selfie before her surgery and again when she was healed and sent us these to tell us that she is overjoyed! We are in awe of her naturally beautiful transformation.
Mini Facelift Before and After - Dr. Malone performed her signature minimal access Deep Plane Facelift on this patient and these before and after pictures she sent to us from her home using her phone to create her own result pictures! Many patients present in their early to mid 40s wanting to lift up their cheeks and smooth and tighten their jawline. While this patient looks refreshed she does not look at all as though she has had work done. Dr. Malone has published in the Aesthetic Surgery Journal on this facelift technique and customizes her treatment for each individual patient.
