Facelift surgery has come a long way. In the past, pulling the skin back was the only method of a facelift, which would lead to a “windswept look” and a longer recovery time with results that only lasted a few months.

Dr. Beckler, one of Santa Barbara’s premier plastic surgeons, uses the most advanced plastic surgery techniques to provide you with a natural, long-lasting facelift result. All incisions are discreetly placed so friends and family can barely see them, if at all. Additionally, the underlying tissue is lifted up and slightly back to the anatomically correct place. This counteracts gravity more directly and naturally. The goal is a refreshed look (like turning back the clock 10 years) without changing your appearance. Most of our Santa Barbara facelift patients comment on having a less tired more refreshed look. The best compliment is “you’ve lost weight or you look well rested”. Recovery time is about 12 to 14 days. Only after a thorough plastic surgery consultation can you begin to understand what alternatives may exist for you or what procedure will meet your expectations.
