Facial Surgery in Orange County

Thinking of a Facelift?

Most Mission Viejo and OC patients think of a facelift as a single procedure that fixes everything. But actually, your facelift, or facial surgery, may be one or several different procedures. Surgical procedures for “lifting” target specific areas; among them the brow, eyes, mid or lower face, the jowl and the neck.


Which Kind of Facelift Surgery Should I Choose?

From comprehensive lifts to mini lifts, almost any variation and extent of surgery can be crafted to meet your facial improvement goals. Every facelift surgery is highly individualized. Dr. Sikorski’s dual specialty of cosmetic surgery and dermatology allows for a wide range of options from purely surgical to mini-surgical, surgical with dermatology or, for those who wish to avoid any type of surgery, nonsurgical cosmetic dermatology.


Facelift Components

Dr. Sikorski provides complimentary consults in the Mission Viejo and Orange County area so that you can weigh the various options. With a complete assessment consultation you’ll understand the options, what each will accomplish and associated procedure costs.


What a Facelift Can and Can’t Do

A Facelift can’t stop the aging process but it can “set back the clock,” improving the most visible signs of aging that show in the neck, jaw line and mid to lower aspect of your face. The improvements can be dramatic. By tightening underlying structures and removing loose skin, Dr. Sikorski redefines the facial/neck structure while achieving a natural, non-stretched, non-surgically altered look.

A Facelift will improve the major negative aspects of aging, such as loosening of facial skin, folds and creasing around the nose and mouth. Incisions are made within the natural creases and curves of the skin or inside the hairline. Once healed, incisions will be hidden.
Superficial issues such as wrinkles, lines and skin appearance are managed through dermatological procedures or laser resurfacing.


Deciding to enhance appearance through facelift procedures

If you are bothered by the signs of aging in your face, a facelift may be right for you. Technically known as rhytidectomy, a facelift is a surgical procedure to improve visible signs of aging in the face and neck, such as:

  • Sagging in the mid-face
  • Creases or hollows below the lower eyelids
  • Deep creases along the nose extending to the corner of the mouth
  • Fat that has fallen or is displaced
  • Loss of muscle tone in the lower face resulting in jowls
  • Loose skin and excess fatty deposits under the chin and jaw which can make even a person of normal weight appear to have a double chin


Costs of Cosmetic Surgery

At Natural Image OC in the Mission Viejo and Orange County area, we maintain a top-level integrated, AAAHC accredited outpatient surgery center. This helps reduce the costs of cosmetic surgery because we are not tied to the additional costs of a satellite surgical center, nor do any “overtime” costs that can accrue from extra surgery time or anesthesiologist fees. In the end, this can save up to 25% over what many surgeries might cost elsewhere.
