Looking for rev Facelift spec. in LA or Orange County Calif for composite facelift. Any suggestions? (photos)

Looking for a doctor in LA or Orange County that specializes in rev face lifts that would address the mid face and malar crescents, jowling and neck laxity. I have a full face already so I don't want fat transfer to the malar area indentation/separation. Is there anyone that specialises in a technique called composite who is in Southern California? Thank you

Revision Facelift

To find a plastic surgeon with expertise in revision facelifts, look at many many photos to start. You should also get copies of your operative reports as this can be very helpful to the plastic surgeon you select. The video attached provides suggestions on how to select a plastic surgeon for a facelift.

Revision facelift

A deep plane facelift should achieve the improvement you describe, although I would caution you that no facelift can 100% reliably improve the malar mound/crescent area; this is a notoriously difficult area to improve. Frequently laser resurfacing provides a nice improvement in the malar area by tightening the loose skin that sags somewhat and casts shadows on the skin below it. For a revision facelift surgeon in LA I would consult with Dr. Andrew Frankel. If you can travel for your procedure we have numerous patients that do so. 

Hope that helps and best wishes,

Seek a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon

It is important to choose a highly skilled and experienced surgeon to match your #facelift goals and skin type with the appropriate surgical techniques.

Also, its best to work with a #board #certified plastic surgeon who is highly trained with your desired procedures. I also encourage you to look at before and after photos of the surgeons actual patients. Also, reading patient reviews of those who have had combined surgeries will be beneficial. Gathering all of this information will help you make a well-informed decision.

Thank you for your question. I suggest that you consult with a few surgeons in Southern California and choose a surgeon based on your rapport/comfort as well as the surgeon's expertise, education credentials, patient testimonials, before and after photos and experience.

Looking for a composite lift

After reviewing your photos a facelift that improves, your cheek, jowls and neck will offer you benefit. I would not suggest that you inquire about any named facelift procedure, but rather consult with the appropriate Specialist and view pre and post operative patients. Discuss your concerns, specifically addressing these areas.

Your facelift can be performed using a composite type of lift without fat transfer.
