Doctor’s Thoughts on Facelift & Litelift®

At Pacific Center Plastic Surgery, we strive to understand your unique concerns and goals to find the right treatment plan for you. For many, the significant results of a facelift can save them time and money in the long run, reducing the need for countless injectable treatment sessions that are only temporary. We’ve helped hundreds of patients achieve long-lasting results from their facelift for a younger, rejuvenated appearance that they can feel confident with. We have also developed the innovative Litelift® technique, offering a less invasive alternative to the traditional facelift. As board-certified surgeons, we aim to deliver the best care, from consultation to post-op.

What is a Facelift and Litelift®?

A facelift is a surgical procedure that can take years off of your appearance by addressing midface volume loss, jowls, sagging, wrinkles, and folds. Facelift techniques continue to advance, with Dr. Nichter and Dr. Horowitz leading some of the best new techniques like the Litelift®. That means there are more options than ever when it comes to rejuvenating your appearance, allowing you to choose the right procedure for your unique concerns and goals. The Litelift® is often combined with other procedures like the neck lift, brow lift, or nonsurgical treatments like Botox. Dr. Nichter and Dr. Horowitz can meet with you to discuss your options and develop a customized plan that’s best for you.

How is the Litelift®/Facelift performed?

During a Litelift®/facelift, incisions are made within the hairline and behind the ear where they can be well-concealed. The facial tissue will then be tightened to smooth out wrinkles and sagging, and excess skin is removed.

Am I a Candidate for the Litelift®/Facelift?

If you are unhappy with facial wrinkles, folds, and jowls, a Litelift® or facelift might be right for you! Both techniques can address these signs of aging for a younger, rejuvenated appearance. To be a successful candidate, you should be prepared for surgery and some downtime.

What is Recovery like After Litelift®/Facelift?

After your Litelift®/facelift, you can expect some swelling, bruising, and general discomfort for 1-2 weeks. You should plan to take this time off work to rest. Dr. Horowitz or Dr. Nichter will provide you with all the necessary post-op instructions for a successful recovery process. 

Facelift or Litelift® Results

With a Litelift®, you can usually start to feel presentable in one to two weeks. You’ll notice amazing, youthful changes to their appearance soon enough. As the swelling continues to diminish, you can enjoy a younger appearance that is long-lasting. The exact longevity of your results will depend on certain factors like the technique used and your body’s natural aging process. Patients can look up to 10 years younger after their procedure, with natural-looking results lasting years.
