Turn back the hands of time and restore your energetic, youthful appearance with one of the most powerful facial rejuvenation options available today: a customized surgical facelift!

Despite the plethora of non-invasive rejuvenation treatments on the market today, the fact is that the surgical facelift remains one of the most powerful, most effective facial rejuvenation procedures available today. Ideal for minimizing wrinkles, sagging, and other unwelcome signs of premature aging, a surgical facelift delivers long-lasting results by eliminating the excess skin at the root of many folds and wrinkles, as well as lifting and tightening the tissues of the face and neck that have begun to sag and droop with advancing age.

Facelift Procedure Before & After

When performed by a talented, Board certified surgeon with the esthetic judgment to design the perfect facelift for each patient and the surgical experience to implement the lift successfully, today’s advanced surgical techniques enable subtle, yet highly effective rejuvenation, avoiding the tight, pulled-back, “windswept” appearance commonly associated with the traditional facelift. When customized to match your unique facial anatomy, your facelift can help you look years younger, without your friends knowing that you “had work done”!

Dr. Michael Godin, highly-acclaimed double Board certified Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon with a private surgical practice in Los Angeles, California, offers a powerful combination of artistic talent and cutting-edge surgery to reveal and enhance the underlying structures of the face, bringing out each patient’s own wonderful beauty. By individually-tailoring each lift to match the patient’s unique facial anatomy, Dr. Godin strives to deliver highly-effective, natural-looking rejuvenation that enhances the natural beauty and balanced harmony of your facial contours.*

Benefits of a Surgical Facelift with Dr. Godin

Facelift surgery with Dr. Godin is ideal for patients seeking one or more of the following corrections:

  • Improving the contours of the neckline
  • Minimizing the appearance of vertical banding on the chin and neck
  • Creating a more sculpted jawline
  • Reducing the appearance of jowling and/or a double chin
  • Minimizing and softening facial folds, particularly around the mid- and lower face, such as the nasolabial folds and “marionette lines”
  • Enhancing the size, position, and definition of the cheeks


The Facelift Procedure

Dr. Godin performs all his facelift surgeries onsite in his private surgery suite under IV sedation and local anesthesia; no general anesthesia is required. The surgery usually requires incisions hidden in the hair and behind the ears, but Dr. Godin makes every effort to ensure that the different facelift typesincisions are placed as inconspicuously as possible to avoid the potential for visible, long-term scarring. Once the loose, excess skin has been excised and the structures of the face lifted and tightened to blend with your natural facial contours, the incisions are closed with sutures and any bleeding stopped immediately by electric cautery. This final step means that your procedure time may be a little longer, but it eliminates the need for surgical drains, minimizing the potential for bruising and reducing your recovery time.


*Individual results may vary. Results are not guaranteed.

Dr. Godin also performs surgeries in La Jolla and Los Angeles!
