Facelift Candidates

Things to consider when contemplating a Facelift in Newport Beach, CA

A facelift is performed to reverse the signs of an aging face, such as skin laxity. Facelift surgery removes loose, sagging tissues in the face and neck, providing a more refreshed, firmer and youthful appearance. The facelift procedure involves the face, neck,  jowls, and mid-face.

Candidates for a facelift have one or more of the following concerns:

  • Loose skin in the neck, “turkey neck”
  • Sagging jowls
  • A loss of definition in the jawline
  • Deep cheek folds – lines that runs from the corner of the nose to the corner of the mouth
  • Marionette lines – lines that form at the corners of the mouth creating the appearance of a downturned smile
  • Loose sagging skin and excess fatty tissue in the mid-face, resulting in loss of cheek volume
  • Excess wrinkling around the mouth and chin area
  • Overall tired appearance

How to get the most natural facelift results:

Dr. Mark Anton was recently voted Best Facelift Doctor in Los Angeles. His signature Triple Layer Facelift allows for very natural results while still achieving a firmer, more refreshed look.

What is a Triple Layer Facelift?

Dr. Mark Anton’s technique involves:

  • Dissecting and lifting the SMAS, a thick fibrous tissue
  • After tightening SMAS, Dr. Anton re-drapes and removes excess skin to maintain a natural look
  • Dr. Anton carefully sutures around the hairline and behind the ears for minimal visible scarring
  • When tightening loose skin in the neck, Dr. Anton does not cut muscle under the chin (platysmal), as that can create a scar band and “witches chin”
  • Dr. Anton often includes lower eyelid surgery, as this eliminates the undesirable “wind-blown” look. Many patients also opt for upper eyelid surgery
  • Laser CO2 and Fractora resurfacing to treat fine lines, wrinkles, large pores, and uneven skin texture
  • Facetite, an advanced radio-frequency technology, is used to tighten tissues and stimulate collagen
  • Fat is harvested through liposuction then combined with PRP (platelet-rich plasma) and stem cells before being injected into facial hollows like cheeks or deep wrinkles
