Little Time for Down Time? Our 10 Day Recovery Facelift May Be for You!

“I’m too busy for a facelift.” Many of our patients desire facial rejuvenation, but don’t have an extra 2-3 weeks for recovery. At STC Plastic Surgery, we don’t believe in the status quo. Our surgeon, Dr. Brian Machida uses advanced surgical techniques to shorten facelift recovery timelines and improve results. A typical patient at our practice can expect a remarkably short recovery time of just 7-10 days. Why miss three weeks of work when you can miss one? Save your vacation days for an actual vacation!

The STC Facelift- What Makes Our Procedure Unique?

Many plastic surgeons market their facelift procedures using named techniques and buzzwords. We prefer not to limit ourselves to one or two popular options. Dr. Machida is well versed in many facelift methods and techniques. He customizes his treatment approach to the patient’s specific needs and facial anatomy. He uses the best technique or combination of techniques for each surgery.

Facelifts are often performed under general anesthesia. Throughout his 30 year career as a plastic surgeon, Dr. Machida has performed thousands of facelift procedures. He discovered that the procedure can be performed using a local anesthetic. This eliminates the risks of general anesthesia for our facelift patients and significantly improves the recovery experience.

One final, but important benefit to receiving facelift surgery at our Inland Empire plastic surgery practice is a shorter facelift operation. Dr. Machida’s advanced techniques allow him to complete facelift surgery in under 2 hours. Don’t worry, he doesn’t rush the procedure. He simply uses effective techniques and shortens operating times by using local anesthesia.

Shorter Recovery Times After Facelift Surgery

By avoiding general anesthesia and reducing time in the operating room, we’ve been able to reduce recovery time and intensity after facelift surgery. A typical facelift at our practice requires 7-10 days of downtime. For more extensive procedures, recovery may take two weeks. Our patients return to work sooner and feel better throughout the recovery process. Many find they only require their prescription pain medications for a few days, not a few weeks.

No Downtime Options for Facial Rejuvenation

Our 10-day recovery facelift makes facial plastic surgery more accessible to men and women in the Inland Empire. However, our busiest patients may still be unable to fit this surgery into their schedules. Don’t give up on a younger looking appearance. Our liquid facelift uses dermal fillers and BOTOX®, not surgery, to rejuvenate the face. Our liquid lift requires no downtime!

Our liquid facelift is ideal for patients that want, or need, to avoid facial plastic surgery. It may be able to help you delay or prevent more invasive procedures.
