Face Lift Stock ImageYour face can be your most prominent and interesting physical feature. Unfortunately, the effects of sun exposure, genetics, weight fluctuations, smoking and pollution can collectively impact the appearance of your face. A face lift helps Danville and Walnut Creek residents address these various effects by firming and tightening the skin in the face and neck area.

A face lift can create a dramatically more youthful appearance. Dr. Mariotti performs face lifts and other facial plastic surgery procedures for men and women of all ages. To discuss your options for wrinkle reduction and long-lasting skin tightening, simply request a consultationrequest a consultation online or call his office at (925) 685-4533.

Why Face Lift?

A facelift can address and mitigate signs of aging such as sagging skin, deep creases, and loss of muscle tone. Although this requires tightening the skin, Dr. Mariotti understands that no one wants a "fake-looking" or "worked-on" appearance, so he is dedicated to delivering natural results. Gone are the expressionless, wind-tunneled, pulled-back looks of the past. Dr. Mariotti strives to create a younger look for his patients with as little "evidence" as possible. When you view patient photos, you will see that Dr. Mariotti works hard to create natural-looking results for his face lift patients. A face lift can take years off of your appearance without dramatically changing the underlying characteristics that make you unique.

Dr. Mariotti's face lift patients are typically between their mid forties to their late sixties, but beautiful, natural-looking results are across the board. Regardless of age, if you are not ready for surgery, Dr. Mariotti offers several non-surgical alternatives such as dermal fillers or BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments.

During Surgery

This surgery is performed under general anesthesia with the assistance of a board certified anesthesiologist, who remains on hand for the duration of the procedure. Dr. Mariotti believes that this approach offers the highest level of safety and comfort for his patients. There are several techniques used during a face lift procedure but, in almost all cases, the sagging neck muscles are tightened, the jowls are lifted and cheek fat is restored to its original position. After this, the skin is conservatively and strategically tightened to produce a more youthful appearance while being mindful of minimizing any outward appearance of surgery. On occasion, liposuction can be used to better contour the chin and neck. For your comfort and safety, Dr. Mariotti recommends staying one night at Premier Surgery Center, where a dedicated nurse will care for your every need.

Showing Off Your New Look

The morning after your surgery, Dr Mariotti will stop by the surgery center to see how you are doing. Upon his recommendation, you will be sent home with some light dressings, which will be removed in 48 to 72 hours. Most of the sutures Dr. Mariotti uses are dissolvable, which means that very few will need to be removed. You should expect some bruising and swelling but these generally subside within the first week. Although your results will continue to improve over the course of the next several weeks, you will be able to see and show off your transformation in just 10 to 14 days.
