Dr. Jonathan Le often performs Facial Rejuvenation for patients that have
multiple areas to improve upon. The continued development of new techniques and
technologies allows for shorter procedures, less anesthesia, shorter recovery
and often, less cost. The procedures can be performed individually and staged
when necessary to better accommodate your schedule or in combination when it is
With more traditional approaches designed to improved the facial contour, a
facelift is designed to improve sagging facial skin, jowls and loose neck skin.
During this procedure, Dr. Jonathan Le removes excess fat, tightens muscles, and
redrapes the skin.
To improve the facial appearance in regards to skin tone and texture, Dr. Le
may also use a laser that treats layers of damaged skin. Laser resurfacing is
designed to even out the skin of the face and smooth fine wrinkles. It softens
lines around the eyes and mouth and minimizes facial scars and uneven
pigmentation. Laser resurfacing can be done all over the surface of the face
when done as a single procedure or just in certain areas (such as the eyelids or
the mouth) in combination with a facelift. In Facial Rejuvenation surgery, Dr.
Jonathan Le addresses the appearance of the eyes as well. A blepharoplasty
(eyelid surgery) is designed to correct drooping upper eyelids and puffy skin
below the eyes by removing excess skin and adjusting the position of the fat.
Sometimes a browlift will also help to achieve reduction of frown lines and
creases in the brow area.
All of these procedures when combined into Facial Rejuvenation take several
hours. During your Facial Rejuvenation you will be under general anesthesia
provided by a Board Certified Anesthesiologist. Dr. Jonathan Le will perform the
surgery at the accredited surgery center of your choice of the many places that
he has privileges.
After the procedure you will remain in the recovery suite until you are
cleared by the physicians for discharge. You then will be transferred to an
overnight recovery facility for your safety and optimal initial recovery. The
following day Dr. Jonathan Le will examine you and you will be released to
recuperate in the comfort of your own home, with the assistance of a responsible
adult. The average time off work is ten to fourteen days. These procedures can
also be done individually when desired.
