Are you anxious to get back to your younger-looking self and turn back the hands of time? Let Dr. Sanders help you achieve your goals with a facelift. He uses the most advanced techniques to help his Van Nuys patients erase facial signs of aging, and he can help you achieve a more youthful and refreshed appearance, too! 

Benefits of a Facelift

With his advanced skill and cosmetic artistry, Dr. Sanders helps his facelift patients look years younger and achieve natural-looking results, all while avoiding the “windblown” look of years past. He knows that every patient he sees is different and unique; therefore, he customizes every treatment plan to reach their unique cosmetic results. Dr. Sanders offers several types of facelift techniques, including:

  • Full Facelift

This technique is used for Van Nuys patients who have extensive signs of aging they’d like to improve on the lower two-thirds of the face. During a full facelift, Dr. Sanders will make changes to the tissues and muscles below the skin and remove any excess skin and fat to provide patients with a lifted and rejuvenated appearance.

  • Limited/Mini Facelift

The limited/mini facelift technique provides a moderate amount of change by combining a limited neck lift with a cheeklift to improve the cheek and jawline area. This approach is perfect for Van Nuys patients whose goals include a smoother, lifted appearance around their cheeks and jawline, but whose neck only needs minor improvement.

To further customize the facelift experience, Dr. Sanders often includes other procedures at the same time, such as:

  • Full neck lift – addresses the jawline and neck areas and provides patients with an improvement in just these areas while leaving the cheeks alone. 
  • Cheek lift – lifts the cheek and jowl areas and gives Dr. Sanders’ patients relief from their sagging skin in these areas.
  • Limited neck lift – provides improvement for those who need minimal changes to the jawline and neck areas.

Is a Facelift Right for You?

It may be surprising to hear, but not everyone who wants a facelift will be considered a good candidate for the procedure. Dr. Sanders is most concerned about your overall safety and well- being; therefore, to be considered a candidate for facelift surgery, you must: 

  • Be in good overall health and mental health
  • Have realistic expectations of your final results
  • Have loose skin on your face and/or neck
  • Have drooping fat and muscle on your face and/or neck
  • Have a reasonable amount of elasticity in your skin
  • Not smoke or use tobacco products for the recommended period of time prior to and after your facelift

To find out if you are a good candidate for facelift surgery, schedule a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Sanders in his Van Nuys area office.

Cost of a Facelift

As with most plastic surgery procedures, the cost of a facelift varies from patient to patient and is determined by their needs and desired aesthetic results. Patients who choose multiple procedures to enhance their final results should expect their facelift to cost more than those who choose a limited or mini-facelift.

When you meet with Dr. Sanders for your initial consultation, he will provide you with a price estimate that is customized to you and your specific needs. 

Recovery from a Facelift

For most men and women in Van Nuys, recovery after a facelift is usually 10-14 days, depending on the type of facelift you have performed. No matter the technique used for your facelift, you should expect minor bruising and swelling on your face. Not to worry—this will subside within the first 2 weeks. After the first 10-14 days, most patients can resume normal daily activities, as their appearance will be very normal at that time.
