Face Lift

Long Lasting Facial Tightening

Face lifting helps diminish the effects of aging that causes the skin to loosen on the face and neck.  This procedure can give you a considerably younger-looking face and neck.  Many people experience renewed self-esteem and renewed vitality. 


Aging face results from both skin laxity and loss of volume such as collagen, fat, and bone.

For skin laxity, three types of facelift surgery options exist to lift different areas of the face.

The brow and cheek face lift addresses the upper face, including the brows, temple, and cheeks.  upper and/or lower eyelid surgery can be done at the same time.  This facelift option primarily lifts the brows and cheeks.

On the other hand, The jowl and neck face lift addresses the lower face, including the areas in front of the ear, the jowls, and the neck. Often chin implant and/or fat grafting is done at the same time.  This facelift option creates a more graceful lower face and neck contour.  

For loss of volume, a volume lift is needed to restore fullness.  Volume restoration indirectly lifts the skin, creating a fuller, voluminous, and plumber face. The surgical option is fat grafting.  

Depending on one’s condition, one or even three lifts such as  brow cheek, jowl neck, and even volume lift surgery options may be appropriate.  When multiple lifts are needed, surgeries are generally spaced several weeks apart.

Frequent Ask Question

Brow and Cheek Lift


This lift uses endosopic or small incisions are made the scalp areas to lift up the tissues of the brow and cheeks.  Unlike traditional endoscopic technique, only incisions in the scalp are needed, eliminating the need for an additional inside-the-mouth incision.  Also unlike traditional endoscopic technique, the shape of the cheeks and brows are individually tailored with deep suspension sutures, eliminating the need for an foreign implant. Unlike the traditional “southern” lift, no skin is actually removed. Temporary fixation devices are placed and then removed within the week.  


Jowl and Neck Lift

This lift uses incision hidden in the ear crease to lift up the tissues of the lower cheeks, the jowls, the jawline, and the upper neck.  Unlike traditional facelift with longer incision, this incision is shorter.  And unlike traditional facelift, the face is not just lifted, but the fullness is restored with growth factors and stem cells enriched micro-droplet fat grafting.  Furthermore, unlike traditional facelift where the skin is stretched, the skin is actually rejuvenated and re-thickened with HDGF and Fat Stem Cells, restoring suppleness to the aging skin.  

Volume Lift

This lift uses small punctures to inject nutritionally enriched micro-droplet fat to restore volume to the face and the combined fat stem cells with high density growth factors to the skin for skin rejuvenation.


The fat is harvested from any areas of excess body fat using the microcannula technique.  Under tumescent local anesthesia, the excess fat is removed, using  “micro liposuction” technique, with small cannulas.  When power is used, the microcannulas are used in reciprocating motion so that one often feels like getting an “internal massage.” The fat is gently, incrementally, and progressively removed, layer by layer, without heat, while preserving the stem cell-rich fat cells in the extraction chamber.  


In this state-of-the-art procedure, the extracted stem-cell rich fat cells can be processed into small-particle sized fat cells, with the stem cells extracted, and high density growth factors from platelet rich plasma added for enhanced augmentation,  regenerative, and anti-aging effects.  

Depending on one’s condition, one or even three lifts such as brow cheek, jowl neck, and even volume lift surgery options may be appropriate.  When multiple lifts are needed, surgeries are generally spaced several weeks apart.

The surgery takes about four hours in an outpatient surgery center.

Local or general anesthesia may be used.

The results are seen immediately.

Healthy eating and exercise are helpful to enhance results.

Further treatment may be recommended for further results.

Recovery lasts two weeks, with most people returning to work and activities thereafter.

Temporary swelling, soreness, and mild bruising are expected. Gravity dependent areas may have more temporary swelling.
