Getting a facelift in San Diego as in many cosmopolitan cities may be a customary thing among certain demographics. However, though the practice is increasingly becoming more common, any surgical procedure is approached beforehand with serious talk of care and preparation for it. To make an informed decision whether or not to undergo cosmetic surgery, Dr. Phil, in his recent article for Huff Post, suggests asking yourself some questions to find out whether your reasons are valid enough to warrant the change.
You don’t have to go all the way to Los Angeles to meet particularly health and age-conscious Californians concerned about their physical appearance—even people in San Diego and elsewhere understand and appreciate the benefits, both aesthetically and functionally, of enhancing one’s features where there are possible and safe ways to do so.

Here are some of the more common cosmetic surgery procedures that help people, women in particular, gain confidence when their looks—fresher and livelier—are restored.

When considering facial plastic surgery, it’s important to find a surgeon who will focus on bringing out the best in your appearance without compromising your individuality. Whether you are considering a traditional facelift or a nonsurgical enhancement, the most important decision you will make before your surgery is your selection of a plastic surgeon.
Many patients skip a vital step before surgery: verifying a surgeon’s qualifications and professional affiliations. In addition to standard state medical licensure, look for certifications from the American Board of Surgery and American Board of Plastic Surgery. These institutions stand behind their certified members, and membership demonstrates the completion of comprehensive plastic surgery training along with demonstrated knowledge of plastic surgery techniques.
When interviewing potential plastic surgeons, be wary of doctors who surprise you with a laundry list of additional recommendations for treatment. While it’s true that a quality surgeon may suggest complementary procedures when they are safe and in line with your individual goals, trying to sell you on a tummy tuck when you’ve come in to discuss a facelift is more than likely a red flag. The best plastic surgeons may inform you of additional options that may further enhance your appearance, yet do so without trying to convince you that you need a variety of extra surgeries.
Do Your Research
If you’re reading this, you’re already on the right track. There is a wealth of information available online, as long as you make sure you’re consulting credible sources. Look for article, blogs and posts from board certified plastic surgeons about the procedures you are considering.
Though we’re undoubtedly grateful that gravity keeps our feet on the ground, we’d all prefer if it didn’t exert such a downward pull on the rest of our bodies, especially the face. Today’s many advances in cosmetic procedures offer a number of treatments to help counter that gravity-induced sunken look through the mid-face that can add years to your appearance. Whether you seek to add fullness to the cheeks with implants or a mid face lift, facial contouring can bring your features into harmony while taking years off your appearance.
Throughout history, a familiar depiction of youth and beauty has been the angelic face of a rosy-cheeked cherub. We associate full, lifted cheeks with a more youthful appearance. If you’re concerned that your facial features look gaunt or your cheeks lack definition, implants may be an excellent solution to restore fullness or create dimension in naturally flatter cheekbones. The ideal candidates for cheek implants will see more balance among their facial features and enjoy improved proportions among forehead, nose, cheeks, and chin.
Mid Face Lift
Performed as part of a full face lift or on its own, a mid face lift (sometimes called a cheek lift) repositions soft tissue in order to create a more youthful, lifted appearance through the cheeks. Requiring less surgical and recovery time than a full facelift, a mid facelift tightens and lifts facial skin and tissue over the cheeks. By focusing this area with surgery or implants, surgeons can better fight the effects of gravity and help to turn back the hands of time.
