What facelift procedures can I get?

You may be an appropriate candidate for a number of procedures. These might include Botox, a mini-lift, Sculptra, or a thread lift. Whatever your needs, our clinic will be happy to discuss with you which procedure is in your best interest. The first step is a consultation with Dr. Echavez based in San Francisco and Seattle.

The traditional face lift procedure tightens the skin in the neck, jaw, and lower face; the eye area and the forehead are not altered by this procedure. For typical facelift cosmetic surgery, any pain that the patient may experience afterwards may be alleviated with the use of oral medication. The immediate recovery period for most people who undergo a face lift procedure is one to two weeks.

Results following Botox injection generally last about three to six months. Rarely, the effect may last shorter or longer. Some patients find that over time, the results last longer and longer.



Some procedures can be done in the office.  This would include FaceTite, Fractora, and injections of fillers and Botox or Dysport.  Facelift surgery is done in a hospital with an overnight stay.  Most procedures that are focused on the face and neck cause little pain afterwards, but prescription oral pain medications can be used if needed for any discomfort.
There is no right or wrong adult age to consider having a procedure.  Everyone ages differently, and factors such as sun exposure, cigarette smoking and heredity can all have an effect.
