Patient Before & After Photos

Your whole outlook can be influenced by your reflection in the mirror. A refreshed, sculpted, youthful-looking face can increase your confidence and make life more rewarding. Unfortunately, stress, gravity, heredity, and exposure to the elements can take a toll on your face, making you look perpetually tired and aged. Face lift surgery in the San Diego area can help turn back the years from your appearance, so you look like you, only better.

Since your face is one of your most noticeable features, be sure to choose a highly-qualified plastic surgeon to perform any improvements. Dr. Richard Chaffoo is among a select few plastic surgeons who is triple board certified, by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, the American Board of Otolaryngology (Head and Neck Surgery), and the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. Patients appreciate his dedication to achieving natural looking improvements.

Improvements from San Diego Facelift

Also known as a rhytidectomy, women and men in San Diego choose facelift surgery to correct loose, sagging skin on the lower two-thirds of the face and tighten underlying facial muscles. Dr. Chaffoo can also use liposuction to remove unwanted fat from the cheeks, under the chin, and the neck for firmer, more sculpted facial contours.

If you're interested in a face lift, but have some concerns about the procedure, take a few moments now to learn more about Dr. Chaffoo's surgical technique, the risks and complications, and recovering from a face lift.

For younger patients who have good skin elasticity and less advanced sagging, the endoscopic short-scar or "mini-facelift" might be effective to reduce the earliest signs of aging. This technique is quicker, less invasive, and requires less recovery time than the traditional face lift procedure in San Diego. Similarly, Dr. Chaffoo also offers a minimally invasive option called PrecisionTx™, which uses laser energy to improve the look of the lower face.

A Unique Combination

While a face lift procedure can effectively restore a youthful facial appearance, you might require a combination of facial cosmetic surgery procedures to achieve the improvements you desire. Our San Diego and La Jolla face lift patients enjoy a more complete facial rejuvenation by combining it with:

At your private consultation, Dr. Chaffoo will ask you to describe your cosmetic goals, answer your questions, and design a combination of procedures customized to you.

Improving your Hairline

Patients who have had facelift surgery elsewhere or even years ago, when less-advanced techniques were being used, may be left with visible scars or an elevated hairline. Now, with NeoGraft® hair restoration, our San Diego patients can cover scars at the edge of the hairline or even have their hairlines restored to their pre-surgery locations. If you're interested in eliminating the signs of prior cosmetic surgery, Dr. Chaffoo's La Jolla Hair Restoration Center offers a variety of options that can help re-establish a lower, more youthful hairline.
