Board Certified Orange County Plastic Surgeon: Rhytidectomy

Board Certified Orange County Plastic Surgeon: Facelift Surgery

Orange County Plastic Surgeon Dr. K. Charles Kim, MD uses the newest and safest facelift procedures in order to get the most aesthetically pleasing results for his Los Angeles, California patients.

As an Orange County Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Kim performs a wide variety of cosmetic and plastic surgeries for the facial area. A facelift, also often referred to as a rhytidectomy, can help you to achieve a more refreshed and youthful appearance. For many Caucasian patients, facelifts are a common method used to correct sagging around the lips, jawline and neck. Amongst the Asian population, however, such sagging usually occurs much less frequently. Commonly, as a plastic surgeon, Dr Kim sees that his older Asian patients elect to have a face lift only on the lower third of their face.  Procedures that prove to be much more frequent among his Asian patients include upper and/or lower eyelid surgery, brow lifts and the mid-face lift.

All of Dr. Kim's facelift procedures are performed on-site as out-patient procedures in his fully accredited surgical suites in Orange County, CA.

As a board certified Orange County Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Kim offers various Face lift Procedures.  He will customize the Facelift techniques provided to you based on what is best for you as the patient.  This can all be dicsussed with Dr. during your complimentary facelift consultation.  Such procedures offered include:

Short Scar Facelift: A short-scar facelift, also known as a minimal-incision Facelift, is a facelift that repositions the soft tissues and skin of the face that have been adversely affected by the process of aging. The main difference between a short-scar face lift and other more traditional facelifts is that the short-scar lift features less scarring. The scarring that occurs in the crease behind the ear as well as in the patient's hairline behind the ear is either largely or even completely eliminated.

Mid-facelift: The Mid Face Lift, also referred to as the cheek lift, is a surgical procedure performed by the Beverly Hills Plastic Surgeon Dr. K. Charles Kim.  The procedure restores both natural shape and youthfulness back to the lower eyelid and the cheek area. The Midface lift also corrects the puffiness of the lower eyelids as well as any indentations of the upper cheek.  The naso-labial folds are also corrected. The mid-facelift provides to the patient a restoration of that natural and youthful appearance without any sort of  "overdone" look, or the "pulled" effect.

Lower Third Facelift (Most common among our Asian Patients): A lower face lift, also known as the lower third face lift, is a cosmetic surgery that will eliminate jowls, tighten loose skin on the neck as well as the jaw line, address the droopiness in the corners of the mouth and soft tissues.  The full face lift, for example, is actually a combination of a both a lower face lift and midfacelift. The full face lift procedure helps to rejuvenate the face from the cheeks all the way to the neck, while the lower face lift procedure lifts the lower third portion of the face.

Neck Lift: OC Plastic Surgeon Dr. Kim offers a number of procedures used to enhance the appearance of the neck. As an experienced Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Kim will discuss all the options with you during your complimentary free consultation. The necklift surgical procedures range from quick in-office visits with no associated down-time, all the way to more invasive surgical procedures. A few of these surgical procedures include: Botox, neck liposuction and the standard necklift surgical procedure as well. The standard neck lift that is performed by the OC Plastic Surgeon Dr. K. Charles Kim, is used to reposition the muscles, the structure of the neck and the neck-area skin in both men as well as women.  Any patient who is experiencing jawline and neck aging can benefit from this type of procedure. The goal of the necklift procedure is to restore the youthful contours of both the neck as well as the jawline.

Brow Lift: The brow lift is an extremely popular procedure for both men and women who want to reduce wrinkles.  The procedure returns a more rested and youthful look to the patient's forehead. This surgical procedure is often paired with a facelift, dermal fillers, eyelid surgery or a number of other skin treatments.  This provides a completely rejuvenated and youthful appearance to the patient.
