*Historically, a mini facelift has been a procedure for younger patients, patients who have already had a facelift, or patients only looking to target specific minor areas of the face. Dr. David’s version of the mini facelift evolved into the La Jolla Lift®. This procedure was introduced on the hit TV show The Doctors, as well as multiple San Diego television stations as a modified deep-plane facelift technique comprehensively rejuvenating the cheeks, lower face and neck, broadening options for a wider range of clients. Patients achieved dramatic improvement of jowls and “turkey necks”. General anesthesia was not required, making this a safe and affordable procedure for most patients.
The modern version of Dr. David’s La Jolla Lift is a Vertical Deep Plane technique, in which the cheeks , jawline, and neck are lifted in proportion to provide a natural rejuvenation for the entire lower face and neck. Deep fat and musculature are addressed to create a defined jawline and cervico-mental (chin) angle.
A full facelift involves lifting the forehead at the same time as the lower face, however if your brows remain in good position, a mini facelift or lower facelift produces a reliable and long-lasting result for the lower two-thirds of the face and neck. One of the best things about the La Jolla Lift® is that it does not require general anesthesia. Our mini facelift can be performed with gentle twilight sedation: patients generally sleep through the procedure with minimal to no discomfort. Our expert staff carefully monitors our patients’ comfort and safety according to the high standards of our AAAHC accredited center. The patient below had the La Jolla Lift® with Max FX Laser, performed with twilight sedation:

*Incisions for the mini facelift are minimized and carefully hidden along the contours of the ear and hairline. Our natural approach preserves the hairline, avoiding an “operated” look that may sometimes accompany facelifts done elsewhere. Each patient is unique, and procedure time may vary accordingly, but the average procedure is completed in under 2 hours. Besides results, safety, and affordability, our clients are also concerned about recovery time. By limiting incisions to below the hairline, the La Jolla Lift® allows for a relatively quick recovery. Nearly all sutures are removed by one week, and most patients resume normal activities in one to two weeks. ** Please visit our mini facelift gallery to see the results of our La Jolla Lift® : Dr. David has helped over one thousand patients from all over Southern California to achieve their facial aesthetic goals with a mini facelift.

Q: Why should I choose a La Jolla Lift over a __?__Lift or a Quick lift?
A: IT’S ALL ABOUT THE DOCTOR. Facelifts are surgical procedures. They cannot be branded like automobiles and produced at equal quality by hundreds of different doctors. The La Jolla Lift is an advanced, deep-plane lift targeting the lower face, performed with gentle sedation, in a AAAHC accredited suite. Equally important, it was developed and is performed exclusively by Dr. Roy David, a double board certified La Jolla Facial Plastic Surgeon who has performed over 1000 facelifts. “Trust your face to a specialist.”
