Facelift - Palm Springs

When you think of cosmetic surgery, one of the first things that come to mind is a face lift. Facelift surgery, is one of the most popular solutions when it comes to cosmetic procedures. Dr. Marcinkus brings over 30 years of experience to the Coachella valley when it comes to facial surgery. Face lifts are probably the most popular known procedures, because they address the insecurities one may have that comes with ageing. You have to understand, that when the skin ages on the face, it loses some of its elasticity and may look wrinkled or creased. This is one of the main reasons as to why people may feel they need a face lift. When you get a procedure like this done, it will help to reverse that process by tightening and firming up and sagging skin on the face and neck. Generally combined with other procedures such as botox, a brow lift, rhinoplasty – this may provide the anti-aging look you might be going for.

What causes people to want a face lift?

Premature facial aging is typically caused by several variables. . Often things like genetics, your lifestyle, sun exposure or your diet can cause the elasticity of your skin to age quicker than others. When this happens, getting a face lift procedure done by Dr. Marcinkus might be the best route to go. Having this done will often address the problematic areas and reverse the signs of aging. This will often provide a tighter, more vibrant look to your appearance. When you receive a facelift, it counteracts the sagging skin, the creases, wrinkles and other problems one might see when it comes to aging. This will rebuild your self-confidence and make you look much younger.

Ideal candidates for facelift surgery:

Generally, people in good health that don’t smoke are ideal candidates. Patients who have a positive outlook with realistic expectations are ideal. People who have mid-face sagging, deep creases, folds or wrinkles are also great candidates. Jowls, double chin caused by loose skin and excess fat would also make you a good candidate for a facelift procedure.

The facelift procedure:

Most facelifts require anesthesia (unless you go with our Eurolift, a non-invasive procedure which is being provided exclusively by Dr. Marcinkus). Eurolift is a quick, super safe, 1 hour in office procedure done under local anesthetic only, and no risky general anesthesia is needed. After your consultation, the doctor will discuss which anesthesia is most appropriate for your unique situation.

As these start to subside, you should see a younger, more youthful look to your face.
