Dr. Tom Pousti is a highly skilled facelift specialist who now has offices in La Jolla where he can see La Jolla facelift patients. In the paragraphs below, Dr. Pousti describes the facelift procedure.  He has helped many patients achieve a more balanced and attractive facial profile.

Description

The face lift is a surgical procedure whose purpose is to improve your appearance. The improvement is achieved by tightening the skin and facial muscles and, where needed, removal of fat. The degree of improvement varies from individual to individual, and is influenced by the physical traits of the skin, and the amount of sun damage, the underlying bony structure and a variety of other factors.

The Surgical Procedure

This operation takes from 3-5 hours depending on what is performed for the patient. This procedure is performed in an outpatient facility under general anesthesia.

What To Expect After Surgery

There is some degree of swelling and possibly bruising in most patients but usually very little in the way of pain or discomfort. Swelling is mostly resolved in two to three weeks, but some swelling will persist. Most patients are quite “presentable” within one to two weeks.

Resumption of Physical Activity

For the first twenty-four to forty-eight hours, you will mostly be at bed rest. For the first week you should plan on remaining relatively at rest at home. After that you may be up and about the house but not outside except for your office visits. The second and third week is a time where gradual resumption of physical activity takes place. No sports or exercise is allowed at this period of time but, if you feel up to it, your may go out to a movie, for an easy walk, a casual dinner, etc. After three weeks gradual resumption of any athletic activity you are comfortable with is allowed.

Dr. Pousti has treated many San Diego and La Jolla facelift patients. Pousti plastic surgery also now has a facelift La Jolla office where he consults with and treats La Jolla plastic surgery patients.

In addition to facial procedures, such as rhinoplasty and facelift, Dr. Pousti also performs liposuction, breast augmentation with breast implants, tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) and other body contouring procedures. Many San Diego and La Jolla plastic surgery patients have chosen to undergo body contouring procedures to obtain a more youthful and shapely profile. Please visit the liposuction, breast augmentation and tummy tuck pages of this website to learn more about these procedures.

Patient Testimonial

I started to notice wrinkles and folds in my neck when I was in my late 40′s. (I am now 62). The desire to do something about this started for me about ten years ago when I saw how good my older sister looked after a facelift. I went for a consultation at that time but did not feel good about the whole experience so I did not follow through with any surgery. Since that first consultation the urge to “fix” my neck has continued. Off and on I have searched the Internet for a Dr. who was board certified in plastic and cosmetic surgery, had a lot of experience, and wasn’t too far from my home. When I discovered Dr. Pousti’s web site I was impressed with his credentials, experience and the testimonials of those who had received his services. I contacted the office for a consultation and right from the start the staff was very accommodating. After meeting with Dr. Pousti and his office people I felt positive about going ahead with the surgery. They were great about making sure I was healthy and a good candidate for the procedure I wanted. In addition, they were encouraging and reassuring every step of the way. It has now been a month since the surgery, and I am thrilled with the results. My lower face and neck look so much better! Though I still have some numbness and stiffness in the area of my jaw and ears, I’ve been assured that with time, these feelings will go away. I would definitely recommend Dr. Pousti to anyone desiring to have plastic or cosmetic surgery.
