Often called the ponytail facelift, Dr. Buonassisi’s West Coast Facelift is a fantastic facial plastic surgical procedure for patients in their late 30s/early 40s who live an active lifestyle and want their appearance to match their upbeat and energetic spirit.
The West Coast Facelift is designed for younger patients who are beginning to see the early signs of aging in the upper face but don’t yet have concerns about the lower face and neck. It provides natural facial rejuvenation results with minimal incisions. The short incision technique is ideal for patients with short hair or those who want to wear their hair up in a ponytail without worrying about longer, more visible scars.
The West Coast Facelift does cause a normal amount of bruising and swelling after surgery, and has about a 2-3 week recovery time before you’re ready to socialize, with your results continuing to improve over the next few weeks.
The West Coast Facelift is a great option for younger patients who are concerned with aging around the upper and mid face face, when skin laxity and cheeks start to diminish. The West Coast Facelift doesn’t impact the look of the jawline or neck, so it’s a procedure that’s suited for patients who aren’t concerned about those areas.
Without too much technical medical jargon, this section gives you a simple understanding of what the West Coast Facelift procedure involves. In this surgery, Dr. Buonassisi releases tethering points of ligaments, muscle, and fat layers in the deep plane layer of the face. He places his short incisions behind and below the ear and elevates the cheeks and brow area into a new, more youthful position before carefully closing the incisions.
While the West Coast Facelift targets the mid and upper face, we want you to love your full look, which is why we’re proud of our full range of complementary services that will make you love your facelift results even more.
