Faces in their forties and fifties start to show the effects of gravity – more lines, less facial muscle tone and sagging jowls. A good face lift, also known as a rhytidectomy, can easily reverse these signs of aging, leaving your face looking refreshed, healthy and younger. It can make you look and feel five to ten years younger. No wonder it’s the most famous procedure in plastic surgery.

Many people still believe that these procedures don’t work and that having one makes you look plastic and unnatural. Others think they are only for the rich and famous or that the procedure needs to be repeated, over and over again.

With advances in surgical technique, the results of today’s lift procedure lasts a long time, anywhere from five to ten years. Many people have repeat procedures with great success. Surgeons have learned how to tighten not only the skin but the underlying muscle as well, and also know how to remove excess fat from jowls, cheeks, and necks with liposuction.

A basic rhytidectomy surgery in [fourthly_city] takes four to five hours. It’s done at a plastic surgery center under general or local anesthesia. You can expect to be back on your normal schedule in about a week, although sun exposure should be limited for several months after surgery. Your new face needs about three weeks to heal fully. Some small scars are unavoidable, but they are normally completely hidden and continue to fade over time.

Photos of Dr. Sundine’s face and neck lift patients are available upon request at the time of consultation. To schedule a consultation, contact the practice at [primary_phone].

Patient Reviews & Testimonials

  • "Extremely Qualified"

    I was referred to Dr Sundine by the Pelican Hill Resort while I was a guest there and I suffered serious facial injuries from a mountain biking incident. Dr Sundine and his staff were concerned and caring and extremely qualified. the work performed by Dr Sundine on my face is simpl astounding. I was so impressed with the quality of care and results I received that I have had additional voluntary facila work performed by Dr Sundine. My wife and some friends have also become patients of Dr Sundine's with the same results. It is a difficult decision to entrust someone to repair and maintain one's appearance. I trust Dr Sundine.

  • "Thanks, Dr. Sundine!"

    After much research and multiple visits to other surgeons, I knew right away that Dr. Sundine was the perfect choice for me. He is gentle and kind and genuinely listens to you. I felt completely confident in his ability from the first visit to the last. Even the day of the procedure, he spent ample time talking to me, taking measurements, and making marks on my body so as to get the perfect results. I have been singing his praises to all of my friends and will recommend him to anyone searching for a plastic surgeon. Thanks, Dr. Sundine!

  • "Excellent Plastic Surgeon!"

    Dr. Sundine is an excellent plastic surgeon! I have been using his services for almost 5 years. The office setting is state of the art and his office manager Toni makes sure that everything runs efficiently. They really listen to your needs before and after surgery to make certain that you walk out fully satisfied. If you want to look years younger and fully refreshed I highly recommend that you use his services. This is not your typical Newport Beach plastic surgeon’s office. Patients walk out looking naturally gorgeous, not overdone like some of the women in Orange County! The office offers a full range of injectables, peels, and lasers in addition to major cosmetic surgery procedures. Whether you need a little tweak or surgery this is the physician that you should see!
