The Facelift Procedure
Our Hermosa Beach facelift procedure performed at Marcus Facial Plastic surgery is custom-tailored for the individual. The procedure right for you may involve several different techniques, depending upon the cosmetic issues you want to resolve. A facelift can treat the signs of aging facial skin and tissue and restore a more youthful, fresh look for an enhancement that lasts for years. Only a personal consultation will establish the type of facelift procedure appropriate for restoring a more youthful facial appearance in your case. Many patients undergo a combination of treatments for full facial rejuvenation, and may undergo additional non-surgical treatments to produce a smoother texture and more evenly-toned facial skin.

Benefits of a Facelift: A Younger Looking You
Whether your facial condition will require a traditional facelift, a limited incision facelift, a mini-facelift, a neck lift, or a combination of procedures, you can be confident in the professional skills of Dr. Keith Marcus. His practice is focused on facial enhancements and his artistic approach to facial rejuvenation can take years off your appearance – not only will you look younger, fresher, and more appealing, our patients report they have experienced a dramatic boost in feelings of self-confidence.
Depending upon the scope of the procedure, your recovery will vary, but generally the downtime is about seven to ten days. Most patients should plan on two weeks off to rest and recover. A facelift is a long-lasting cosmetic enhancement and will keep you looking younger, fresher, and more attractive for years into the future; taking a few weeks off is a small price to pay for the result – simply beautiful.

Restore a Youthful Appearance with an Eyelid Lift
Diminished skin elasticity is a natural part of aging. The skin stops producing as much collagen and elastin, the tissues thin, and the skin begins to sag with the pull of gravity. As time passes, the skin on the upper and lower eyelids thins, and begins to droop and sag. An eyelid lift is a surgical procedure that can improve the appearance of puffiness in the lower eyelids and removes extra skin from the upper eyelids, resulting in a more youthful, fresh appearance. While an eyelid lift is typically performed as a cosmetic enhancement, the procedure can also improve eyesight for patients who are having difficulty with vision due to excessive overhang of the upper eyelids.
The many benefits of an eyelid surgery include:
- The removal of sagging skin that conceals the natural fold of the upper eyelids
- Improve dark circles or bags under the eyes
- Increased upper eyelid surface rather than a deep, hidden fold
- Decrease fatty deposits creating puffiness in the upper eyelids
- Drooping lower eyelid, revealing too much white below the iris of the eye
- Remove loose upper eyelid skin to improve vision
Advanced Neck Lift Techniques
The delicate skin on the neck is one of the first places to show the signs of aging. A saggy, loose, creased neck, can be the result of sun exposure, genetics, or extreme weight loss, or a combination of factors. Unfortunately, the neck is always visible, particularly in our warm Hermosa Beach climate. An aging neck will detract from your natural beauty, and can add years to your appearance. Dr. Marcus has devoted his life’s work to achieving beautiful, natural-looking results. Advances in surgical technology make it possible to perform a neck lift with smaller incisions.
Any surgeon performing a neck lift should be at the leading edge of modern techniques, and Dr. Marcus is passionate about his profession and stays current with recent developments in his field. He focuses on creating a smoother, natural, and more youthful look to the neck. There are several neck lift procedures that may be appropriate, based upon the age of the patient and the condition of the skin. They include:
- Cervicoplasty: a procedure that removes excess skin that leaves neck skin sagging and drooping.
- Platysmaplasty: this procedure reconstructs the neck muscles, tightening them where they have weakened, particularly under the chin.
- Neck liposuction: removes fatty deposits in the neck, often combined with a lift.
Rhinoplasty: Hermosa Beach Nose Job Surgeon
You may be very unhappy with the nose nature gave you. Our Hermosa Beach rhinoplasty, or nose job, is performed by Dr. Marcus, with the goal of changing the shape or size of the nose in a manner that brings balance, harmony, and beauty to your facial structure overall. Many people struggle with a nose that is too large, has a bulbous tip, hangs down, is too broad, has large nostrils, or is uneven or crooked. Modern rhinoplasty surgical techniques make it possible to enhance the nose shape and size and create the perfect nose for your unique facial structure. If you feel like this is right for you, contact us today and schedule a consultation for arguably the best rhinoplasty Hermosa Beach has to offer.
Fight Skin Cancer with Mohs Reconstruction
Named after Dr. Frederic E. Mohs, Mohs reconstruction is a precise type of surgery that repeatedly removes small layers of skin and deep tissue to remove cancer cells. Once a layer of skin is removed, the next layer is carefully examined under a microscope to see if there are any cancer cells remaining. These steps are repeated until no cancer cells are left. The amount of skin and tissue lost is dependent on the size and extent of the cancer. Dr. Marcus is skilled in using the following techniques involved with Mohs reconstruction:
- Primary closure
- Skin grafting
- Flap reconstruction
- Tissue advancement
- Tissue rotation
The result of Mohs reconstruction is not only an improvement in appearance, but also a preservation of expressive functionality in the face.
