What is Liquid Facelift?

This procedure has become increasingly popular over the last several years. Many patients either feel they are not quite ready for facelift surgery or don’t have the time to set aside for recovery. In today’s aesthetics, that will not stop you from being able to make beautiful improvements to your face and look years younger.

The treatment uses facial fillers rather than surgery to help rejuvenate the face, providing a more youthful appearance. It is important to understand that there are limitations to a liquid facelift and that depending on the aesthetic goals of the patient, sometimes only a traditional facelift can achieve a certain degree of longevity and improvements.

What to Expect on the Day of Liquid Facelift

Dr. Sundine creates an individual treatment for each patient, keeping in mind the patient’s specific cosmetic goals. We use several different dermal fillers in our office. Depending on the treatment plan, Dr. Sundine will select the best filler for you. Dr. Sundine uses each facial filler product in different depths of the tissue and carefully selects which areas of the face for the injections, with the overall goal of achieving a more youthful and balanced facial harmony.

At times, Dr. Sundine will suggest also BOTOX or other facial treatments to help complement the specialty dermal fillers he uses during our Newport Beach liquid facelift. We will be very detailed with the treatment and place patient safety as our top priority, striving for natural-looking beautiful results.

Dr. Sundine has a very skillful approach to his Orange County liquid facelift and the recovery process should be quick and simple. There will be multiple injection sites, so it’s common for swelling, bruising, and redness to occur—all of which should subside after a few days. The full effects of your nonsurgical facelift will be best seen in one to two weeks.

What I really like about Dr. Sundine is his vast experience and training. I also like the fact he did not try to sell me other procedures. He is also very down to earth and easy to talk to. I am very satisfied with the results and I highly recommend him.

After much research and multiple visits to other surgeons, I knew right away that Dr. Sundine was the perfect choice for me. I felt completely confident in his ability from the first visit to the last. 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

Dr. Sundine is an excellent plastic surgeon! I have been using his services for almost 5 years. If you want to look years younger and fully refreshed I highly recommend that you use his services. Patients walk out looking naturally gorgeous, not overdone like some of the women in Orange County!

Dr. Sundine is the best plastic surgeon. Dr. Sundine’s excellent skills and knowledge has made my surgery turn out so well. But more importantly, it made me feel better about myself. Again, thank you Dr. Sundine for all you have done for me. You are the best surgeon!

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 facelift or even for people to notice I had a facelift at all. I interviewed many physicians including some of the “celebrity” physicians. Ultimately, I chose Dr. Sundine.
