Platinum Premier Facelift®

Conveniently located to serve Newport Beach & all areas of Orange County

Unparalleled Facelift Results in Newport Beach and Beverly Hills

Aesthetic Rejuvenation Face

The Platinum Premier Facelift® is a highly refined and quality technique that offers incredible results thanks to the combination of having a sound surgical technique performed by a skilled surgeon whose artistic nuance has been honed over years of experience.

This level of expertise and quality is especially important considering the current environment of “light lifts”, “lunchtime face lifts”, and other very heavily marketed face lifts which only provide dubious results with poor quality scarring, strange-looking results, and little longevity.

The Facial Surgery Expertise of Dr. Michael J. Sundine

A passion for facial aesthetics has driven Dr. Sundine throughout his career. Following his comprehensive plastic surgery training at Duke University he pursued two separate facial-plastic-surgery fellowships. The first fellowship was for the treatment of patients with facial deformities.

The second fellowship was with Dr. Bruce Connell-a worldwide recognized expert in facelift surgery. It is through this extensive training, specifically in facial aesthetics and facial anatomy, coupled with his keen eye for elements of facial harmony and individual facial nuances, that brings the end result of this considerable time and training: The Platinum Premier Facelift®.

The Platinum Premier Facelift® comprehensively addresses all the components of facial skin laxity due to aging, atrophy of the soft tissues, and sagging. By addressing all of these components simultaneously, the Platinum Premier Facelift® creates a harmonious and more youthful-looking you.

Following the Platinum Premier Facelift® you should still look like you with a more revitalized and refreshed appearance. Many of our patients look 15-20 years younger with either restored or corrected pleasing features. You will look as young as you feel. By using this technique, Dr. Sundine is able to deliver the finest surgical care for those seeking beautiful and long-lasting results.

Facelift Surgery for Patients of Dr. Sundine

The Platinum Premier Facelift® is a sophisticated and elaborate procedure to perform, but by performing each incremental step in the procedure Dr. Sundine is able to deliver the finest facelift results for his patients.

Dr. Sundine is a leader in the field of facial rejuvenation and has lectured nationally and internationally on topics on facial rejuvenation. He has published peer-reviewed literature on topics in facial rejuvenation and co-authored the textbook Aesthetic Rejuvenation of the Face and Neck with his mentor Dr. Bruce Connell.

The detailed understanding of the intricate anatomic changes that occur with aging have driven the development of the Platinum Premier Facelift®. Each of the identified changes seen with aging is treated with the Platinum Premier Facelift® and it is the precise knowledge of the aging changes that result in harmonious and more youthful appearance. No longer are patients limited to pulling on the skin leading to tight and distorted appearing faces.

My facelift results are fantastic! I recently had a Face Lift with Dr. Sundine. My results are clearly fantastic. (…) I just went into BevMo and when I went to pay the 60-ish year old female cashier. She asked for my ID. I looked at her and I said “really?” She said, “we have to card everyone 40 years old and younger”. I laughed and gave her my drivers license. I told her I am turning 63 in a couple of months. She apologized and said I looked fantastic. I told her not to apologize, as I had not been carded in 30 years! So my facelift results are fantastic! I loved it! I also love my results. Phenomenal!

Benefits of the Platinum Premier Facelift®

As patients begin to investigate the potential methods available to them for their rejuvenation they need to consider the potential final outcomes of the procedure. Dr. Sundine sees patients from across Southern California as well as nationally and internationally who desire a more youthful appearance. The Platinum Premier Facelift® can:

  • Improve the appearance of the brow
  • Soften horizontal forehead lines
  • Eliminate or diminish wrinkles between the eyebrows
  • Release and improve crow’s feet around the corners of the eyes
  • Improve bags under the eyes
  • Soften the cheekbones
  • Add volume to hollowed areas
  • Flatten the deep creases that run from the base of the nose to the corners of the mouth (nasolabial folds)
  • Elevate the depressed corners of the mouth
  • Reduce the appearance of jowls
  • Flattening of the marionette lines
  • Restoration of a pleasing jaw line
  • Elimination of muscle bands and skin laxity in the neck

Each and all of these elements can be corrected with the comprehensive Platinum Premier Facelift®.

Candidates for the Platinum Premier Facelift®

Whether you are starting to see the changes aging has on your face, have an upcoming major event where you would like to look your best, or even feel that you need to appear younger to remain competitive, the Platinum Premier Facelift® may be the procedure for you.

The Platinum Premier Facelift® will rejuvenate your youthful appearance while avoiding leaving any signs of surgery. Some of the signs of aging that can be corrected appear in the diagram below. If you are experiencing some of these changes a facelift may be for you.

Not all of these aging changes require surgery and may be improved using other methods. In some cases, a procedure known as a mini facelift may be the ideal option. The mini facelift is designed for patients who are not yet in need of a full facelift. It is a less invasive option that requires a shorter recovery period. Dr. Sundine will be able to help guide you through your facelift choices.

The Process of the Platinum Premier Facelift®

The initial consultation sets the stage for the excellent results seen with the Platinum Premier Facelift®. Dr. Sundine asks that each patient bring in photographs from when they were 15-20 years younger and where they felt like they looked their best.

A detailed examination is performed with every nuance of each patient’s face being analyzed and recorded. With this information in hand, it is then possible to customize the operation to suit each patient’s specific needs.

With the precise plan that has been crafted for the individual patient’s needs, Dr. Sundine then uses his artistic vision and surgical skills to perform the necessary adjustments using well-hidden incisions.

The addition of volume has allowed Dr. Sundine to improve upon his already excellent facelift results. Dr. Sundine utilizes fat cell harvested from the abdomen or thighs as a more natural option for adding volume.

The fat cells are separated from the stem cells and the stem cells are used to restore the volume of the face. Stem cells have been shown to improve quality of the skin and have many other beneficial anti-aging effects.

    • My experience with Dr. Sundine was AWESOME! He did such an amazing job on my nose. My nose had basically collapsed and Dr. Sundine made it look normal again. He helped me restore my self confidence. I am so happy with the results. Dr. Sundine explained everything in detail prior to surgery along with my follow up visits. I highly recommend him. He is very professional, knowledgeable and kind.

    Excellent. I found Dr. Sundine to be a very competent surgeon and a really good person. His personal manner made a sometimes difficult, time-consuming process (tissue expansion) much easier. I’m glad we pursued the expansion option and I was fortunate to have had him as my surgeon. I recommend Dr. Sundine to anyone who is in need of Plastic / Reconstructive Surgery.

    Dr. Sundine is an outstanding doctor. His technique, his expertise and the care with which he approached my surgery were exceptional. I wasn’t surprised. I chose him because I knew that his training and skills are terrific. Dr. Sundine and his staff still exceeded my expectations, however, and the complete experience – consultation, surgery and follow-up– have been wonderful. As I did, I encourage everyone to do your due diligence and research alternatives, but at the end of the day there is no better choice than Dr. Sundine. Amazing results…

    “He truly deserved the highest reviews on every level”

    I gave Dr. Sundine the highest possible review in each category because he truly deserved the highest reviews on every level. I am a very well recognized lawyer on the West Coast. My firm has spent millions of dollars on television advertising in which I appear. I could not afford to have a bad face lift or even for people to notice I had a face lift at all. I interviewed many physicians including some of the “celebrity” physicians. Ultimately, I chose Dr. Sundine because he performs highly complex complete facial reconstruction procedures on children.

    “Special thank you to Dr. Sundine! So happy!!”

    My keloid surgery was an absolute success. I am so pleased with the results and grateful to the staff pre & post surgery. I was so nervous and scared to precede w/ the procedure. For I never had a surgery or general anesthesia before.:(

    Dr. Sundine with his exceeding professionalism gave me gentle kind assurance that all will be fine. In addition, educated me to his full knowledge and experience in detail what to expect. I felt safe and secure in his hands. Very kind soul. Post surgery I had radiation at another location, and it was a success. I am still in the healing process and my ear aesthetically looks next to perfect. I’m free of the disfigurement and I have a renewed confidence keloid Free!! :-)

    It was like 1 2 3!!

    Thank you Dr. Sundine, the friendly staff/ nurses You ALL Rock!! & I couldn’t ask for any better.:)

    I chose Dr. Sundine because he is an expert in a highly regarded surgical technique that delivers a completely natural result. It takes longer on the operating table and it requires specialized training which many doctors just don’t want to invest in. The results, however, are nothing short of spectacular.
