With the passage of time, the facial shape and contour begin to change as a result of laxity in the deeper facial tissues (muscle, fascia). This causes the face to begin to sag, especially along the jawline and neck.
Facelift San Diego
Our deep plane facelift in La Jolla addresses the upper cheeks, midface, jowls, jawline, corners of the mouth, and neck. The difference between this procedure and the Micro Lift (Mini Facelift) is that the upper cheeks and midface are addressed. Essentially, the same incisions are used in both procedures. Individuals in San Diego with a moderate amount of skin and muscle laxity are good candidates for this procedure. The neck is treated with our neck liposuction in San Diego and the muscle is tightened and repositioned.
Dr. Karam employs a deep plane approach when addressing the jawline and midface, which releases various facial ligaments holding the face in its aged position. It is key to have this release. Without it, you are limited to how much repositioning can be achieved as well as the durability of your results. Another benefit is, the healing part of it happens much faster as it is not disrupting the skin and the fascia. The results not only last longer, but also smoothens the jawline, helps the nasolabial folds, restores the position of the midface, and lifts the neck.
