According to recent statistics released by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, Facelifts have increased in popularity over the past year by 16 percent as more than 116 thousand facelifts were performed in 2007. Certainly this rise in facial contour procedures in a year of economic downturn would indicate that the public realizes the benefits of looking your very best. Lifting and repositioning the facial volume as well as removing excess skin and soft tissue can revitalize the look and allow others to see the youthful inner beauty or self that is sometimes changed from sun damage, gravity, wind, and stress. Looking and feeling youthful allows others to see the inner beauty. It is exciting to see the trends in facial cosmetic surgery especially here in the State Capital of California, Sacramento. We are also noticing more people taking advantage of laser skin rejuvenation, Botox, Juvederm and Sculptra before and after their surgical procedures. It is truly exciting to be providing for patients now with so many options to achieve our goals. We look forward to answering your questions.
