Revitalize and revive with stunning results with our faceliftin Santa Clarita, CA

Just because you are aging doesn’t mean you should show it. Say goodbye to signs of aging with Dr. Howard Hu of Valencia Plastic Surgery, who performs facelifts for the residents of Valencia, Santa Clarita, and the surrounding areas of California.

A facelift requires the skill, precision and artistry of a surgical leader such as Dr. Hu, who always tailors his work to your unique anatomy, lifestyle and wishes. Your results will appear completely natural and organic, and no one will be able to detect that you have had “work done”. For this reason, Dr. Hu is regarded as among the best facelift surgeons in Valencia, Santa Clarita and beyond.

What is a Facelift?

Our facelift in Valencia is a procedure in which excess skin is removed from your face, which results in tightening and smoothing the remaining skin, reducing wrinkles, and providing a younger appearance.

Dr. Hu performs a “dual-plane” face lift, which tightens not only the skin, but also a second muscle layer, often referred to as the SMAS layer. By tightening not only the skin but also the underlying muscle, the results tend to look more natural as well as lasting longer.

This surgery is sometimes performed in conjunction with other procedures such as performing laser skin resurfacing or injecting dermal fillers or fat for a more dramatic effect.

Benefits of Facelift

A facelift reduces signs of aging by tightening and firming facial skin and muscle to give it a smoother, younger-looking appearance. This cosmetic surgery provides dramatic results that can last as long as ten years.

With Dr. Hu’s nuanced, conservative technique, you will receive a huge boost in confidence that will help you feel better about how you look, both in social and work situations.

Dr. Hu will provide you with unlimited access to our Santa Clarita facelift before and after photos.

Your results will vary based on your age and lifestyle, however most clients are thrilled with their outcome.

How is a Facelift Performed?

A facelift is a procedure that is customized for each person. Dr. Hu will administer either general or intravenous sedation for your comfort. Next, he will make one or more incisions, based on where skin requires tightening.

The most common locations for facelift incisions are the following:

  • Beginning at the temple and extending around the ear and into the lower portion of the scalp
  • Underneath the chin
  • Around the ear or in the temple only

The severity of the aging process will determine the extent of incisions necessary. Patient who only have a mild amount of skin laxity or aged appearance can benefit from a “mini” face lift, which requires a minimal amount of scarring and can often be performed under local anesthesia or sedation. More severe skin laxity and aging would necessitate a full face lift, which is performed under general anesthesia. This would require longer incisions, and drains may occasionally be required. These are typically removed the following day. For patients with a “turkey gobbler” or banding appearance under their chin, an incision may be needed under to chin to address the platysma muscles. More severe cases may require a neck lift to be performed at the same time as the face lift.

After making the incisions, Dr. Hu will sculpt and trim the underlying tissues in your face and then pull your skin securely over your new contours. The outer skin will then be tightened and trimmed before it is sewn shut. Your incisions will be sewn or stapled shut, then bandaged. Initially, these scars may be visible, but should be disguised by your hairline or chin as time goes on.
