Los Altos is a vibrant, active community where you’re likely to see people in their 70s running marathons. It’s easy to feel young living here. However, when some of our patients look into the mirror, they don’t see the person on the outside reflecting the youthful vigor they feel on the inside.
The effects of aging, gravity and sun exposure can have a dramatic impact on your facial appearance and make you look tired, unhappy and older than you feel. The board-certified plastic surgeons at Altos Oaks Plastic Surgery can help turn back the hands of time with facelift surgery.

Your Face Lift Consultation
Undergoing facial plastic surgery isn’t like spending the day at a beauty salon; it’s a big decision. It’s important to meet personally with a board-certified plastic surgeon to discuss your goals and ask questions. During this initial consultation, our doctor will work to clearly understand your concerns and evaluate your bone structure, the areas of your face that have excess fat as well as the areas that are deficient in fat. Our doctor will assess the characteristics of your skin and determine which procedures can help you achieve your desired results.
Depending on your goals and characteristics, you may benefit most from an upper, mid or lower facelift. Our surgeon may recommend additional procedures that will enhance your facelift, such as a brow lift or eyelid surgery.
Determining candidacy for face surgery is another element of the consultation process. Generally speaking, the best candidates for the face lift procedure are men and women who desire a tighter, more youthful appearance and have loose or sagging skin in the face or neck area. Additionally, good candidates are:
- In generally good physical and emotional health
- Have realistic expectations of what a facelift can and cannot accomplish
- Able to take time off from work and strenuous activity to recover
- Willing to follow all pre and post-operative instructions provided by our surgeons

We will present you with a variety of choices but it is always ultimately up to you to decide which treatments and procedures best suit your needs and lifestyle.
