Tuck-up Procedures

Tuck-Up Procedures | Godin Facial Surgery | Los Angeles |Beverly HillsLook younger for longer! Minimize minor problem areas undermining your youthful glow with a targeted tuck-up procedure with Dr. Michael Godin.

What is a “tuck-up”? A tuck-up procedure is a small-scale surgical “lift” designed to target a specific problem area on the face or neck. Ideal for younger patients who are just beginning to show visible signs of aging in a particular area or for patients who want to extend the rejuvenating results of a prior lift, a tuck-up can target minor wrinkles and lines, loose skin on the neck, or a sagging jawline. Each tuck-up is customized to minimize those first visible signs of aging and restore, and enhance, your look of youthful energy and vigor!*

Dr. Michael Godin is a highly-acclaimed, double Board certified Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon with a private surgical practice in Los Angeles, California. His advanced, innovative surgical techniques, coupled with his extensive knowledge of the complicated structures of the face, enable him to design and implement small-incision tuck-ups with precision and artistry. Each tuck-up can deliver powerful facial rejuvenation with less discomfort and less downtime than full-scale lift procedures.

Benefits of a Tuck-Up with Dr. Godin

  • Ideal for patients with limited or pre-mature signs of aging in a specific area of the face
  • Extends the results of prior lift procedures, including facelifts, brow lifts, and eye lifts
  • Involves only small, well-hidden incisions
  • Less swelling, bruising, and downtime than a full lift procedure
  • May require as little as 4-5 days of downtime
  • Perfect for “on-the-go” patients who don’t have time for a lengthy procedure or long recovery

Every “tuck up” is 100% customized by Dr. Godin to achieve the aesthetic goals of the patient, and therefore, each tuck-up is slightly different. At your consultation, Dr. Godin will conduct a detailed examination and recommend the precise tuck-up appropriate for you. In some cases, however, the limited nature of the tuck-up may not be sufficient to achieve your specific goals. Should a deeper level of structural rejuvenation be required, Dr. Godin may recommend a more extensive lift procedure—such as a facelift—in order to achieve more effective results.
