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.
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.
If you are struggling with any of the above all the face creams and potions in the world will not correct these problem areas.
A full facelift will usually involves a number of procedures and is the most extensive facial procedure we offer. A typical full facelift will include a brow lift, eye lift, lower facelift and necklift. Dr. Schoemann may also include fat transfer or facial fillers with this procedure depending on your condition.
The mini-facelift focuses on the lower half of the face targeting the jowl area, mouth area and upper neck.
Recovery time will vary depending on the extent of the facelift you choose, as well as your age and how you heal. Typically our patients enjoy a rather quick and painless recovery and are able to resume their daily activities within a couple of weeks. Women can usually start wearing makeup after two weeks.
