Why Choose Dr. Mark Schoemann for your Facelift Procedure

Dr. Mark Schoemann is one of the few double board certified plastic surgeons in San Diego specializing in Facelift and Facial Reconstruction surgery. Dr. Schoemann has helped hundreds of patients obtain their cosmetic goals through surgery and the Facelift is by far one of the most rewarding procedures our patients experience.  Most of our patients will comment that they look 10 year younger after having a facelift by Dr. Schoemann.

Is a Facelift Right For Me?

Many of our clients will ask if they are better off having a liquid facelift or lifestyle lift as they are heavily promoted on TV and social media these days. For most patients that are in their 40’s and up, they will usually require a facelift or mini-facelift depending on their condition.  The Lifestyle Lift you see promoted on TV is a Mini-Facelift focusing on the neck and lower face.  The best candidates are non-smokers in good health.  If you can pinch a good amount of skin in your troubled spots of your face and neck you are probably a good candidate for facelift or mini facelift.  The younger you are the better result you will have with a facelift procedure but at any age the benefits are significant.  If you want to look 10 years younger this procedure is most likely right for you.

Facelift or Mini-Facelift are Recommended if you have the following conditions;

  • Loss of skin elasticity
  • Loss of collagen or plumpness in skin
  • Lax of facial skin
  • Sagging skin in the jowl area
  • Deep creases in skin
  • Wrinkled saggy skin under the chin

If you are struggling with any of the above all the face creams and potions in the world will not correct these problem areas.
