Facelift: What Is It?
Facelift, also referred to as rhytidectomy, is a procedure designed to soften the signs of facial aging. Face lift surgery is appropriate for individuals who desire a comprehensive facial rejuvenation treatment that can address the unwelcome effects of gravity, such as overall skin laxity and loss of muscle tone. As a highly experienced San Diego facelift surgeon, Dr. Kincaid typically recommends and performs this procedure for patients struggling with the following aesthetic issues:
- Loss of well-defined jaw line and/or jowls
- Displaced fatty tissue
- Loss of the overall muscle tone
- Loose skin under the chin
- Wrinkles and prominent “vertical cords” in the neck area
- Deep lines in the cheeks
- Prominent folds extending from the nose to the corners of the mouth

Face Lift in San Diego / La Jolla
Prior to performing facelift surgery, Dr. Stuart Kincaid conducts extensive consultations to get to know his patients and learn about their aesthetic dreams and aspirations. During this time, he also evaluates their overall health and the condition of their skin. Some of the skin characteristics that he analyzes in order to determine the best treatment plan include skin thickness, elasticity and texture. As a leading San Diego plastic surgery specialist, Dr. Kincaid also carefully assesses the extent of each San Diego facelift patient's wrinkles, as well as evaluates his or her bone structure. He uses this information to develop a unique facelift treatment plan that reflects each individual patient's health considerations, aesthetic needs and goals. This thorough process of pre-surgical preparations allows Dr. Kincaid to consistently deliver outstanding facial rejuvenation results for all of his facelift San Diego / La Jolla / Temecula patients.
Combining Facelift Surgery With Other Procedures
Because face lift is designed to address structural changes in facial tissues and not superficial signs of aging, sometimes facelift surgery is combined with other procedures to achieve a comprehensive rejuvenation effect. For example, facial fillers can be used to improve the appearance of sunken-in cheeks while eyelid surgery can be performed to brighten constantly tired-looking eyes. As a leading San Diego / La Jolla plastic surgeon, Dr. Kincaid is highly skilled in performing sophisticated combinations of surgical and non-surgical facial enhancement procedures. Some of the treatments he combines with a facelift more often include:
- Eyelid Surgery. This treatment helps reduce the appearance of crow's feet and puffiness around the eyes.
- Forehead Lift. This procedure softens the horizontal lines on the forehead, as well as reduces the lines between the eyebrows.
- Neck Lift. This surgery is appropriate for patients with excess skin and fatty tissue in the neck area.
- Evolence / Sculptra / Radiesse and Other Facial Fillers. These injectables help add youthful volume to cheeks, lips and other facial areas.
- Chemical Peel. This minimally invasive treatment removes the outermost layer of dead cells, revealing fresh, glowing skin beneath.
