The tell-tale sign of aging remains the lower third of the face and neck as gravity and time take their toll on all of us. Dr. Bastidas has trained with pioneers and leaders in face lifting techniques and can obtain natural results with minimal scarring. Gone are the old days of over tightening the skin. Dr. Bastidas sculpts and elevates the muscle layers so that overlying skin sits naturally and without the “wind tunnel” look. In addition, volumizing procedures such as fat grafting are combined with the face and neck lift to restore youthfulness without appearing artificially enhanced. Scars are well hidden in the hairline and creases and the effects can be seen instantaneously. This procedure is typically performed as an outpatient in our ambulatory center and with a 7-10 day total recovery. In addition, eyelid surgery is frequently offered at the same setting.
