Facelift Before and After Photos & Videos

Actor Lorenzo Lamas, star of “Grease”, “Leave it to Lamas,” and his own series “Renegade,” and many other television and film productions, came to Dr. Mani for a facelift and other rejuvenating procedures. 
Lorenzo allowed his procedure and results to be filmed and the results shown.
                      Lorenzo in Headshots from the 1990’s:
  
Dr. Mani performed a Harmonic mini-lift, along with facial fat/stem-cell transfer, and a very subtle endoscopic browlift to reverse the aging changes Lorenzo had noticed.

Lorenzo’s result was a younger, refreshed look that turned the clock back significantly for him, without looking “pulled” or unnatural.

  
As a surgeon and an artist, Dr. Mani considers an art form and a passion.
He has developed new techniques to create results that are completely natural with a quicker and more comfortable recovery.  Dr. Mani has presented his facelift techniques at educational courses for plastic surgeons across the United States as well as internationally, throughout South America, Europe, and most recently St. Petersburg, Russia (at ISAPS – the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery). 
                                                                                                                                  Dr. Mani uses Harmonic technology to perform facelift procedures.  This technology, brought to us by Johnson & Johnson, allows Dr. Mani to gently separate tissues with ultrasound, resulting in dramatically less swelling and bruising and a quicker recovery.

Dr. Mani is a pioneer in the use of Harmonic Technology and instructs other plastic surgeons in its use as a consultant for Ethicon Endo-Surgery (a division of Johnson & Johnson).  He is the only surgeon on the West Coast with significant experience using Harmonic for facelifts.  The benefits of gentler surgery, decreased tissue trauma, and quicker recovery have become clear to Dr. Mani over two years of using Harmonic, and he uses it to perform every facelift. 

Another major benefit of Harmonic technology is the abililty to do facelift procedures under local anesthesia, without any general anesthetic or even sedation.  If you are a candidate for this option, time of recovery (and costs of the procedure) are dramatically reduced.  Dr. Mani will discuss this with you in detail during your consultation. 

Facelift incisions

Dr. Mani has developed a technique for facelift incisions which leaves an incision that is predominantly within the ear, and virtually undetectable, even on close inspection:

Mini-Facelift (minimal incision, bilamellar), mini-browlift, upper and lower blepharoplasty by Dr. Mani –

Susan, 42, noticed early drooping of the jowl area and complained of “looking tired.”  She also wanted a procedure to smooth out the irregularities of her facial skin left over from acne scarring.

A mini-facelift and temporal browlift restored her cheek and lower facial contour, as well as her youthful brow arch.  A lower blepharoplasty removed the “bags” under her eyes, without changing their natural shape.

The “marionette lines” beside her mouth are completely removed by the mini-facelift.

Elaine had long been bothered by “jowls” and other signs of facial aging and wanted to look younger and refreshed, but still like herself:

A bilamellar, high-SMAS (skin and fibromuscular [SMAS] layer lifted separately) facelift restored the youthful fullness to her cheeks, and eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) eliminated the puffiness from under her eyes as well as the hooding above them.

Her jawline was also rejuvenated.

Facelift (bilamellar, high-SMAS), temporal browlift, upper and lower blepharoplasty by Dr. Mani –

Pat, a 55 year-old woman, had begun to notice quite recently that “everything started to drop.”  The heaviness in her lower face resulted more from descent of deeper tissues than stretching of the skin.

A facelift which suspends the muscle layer underneath the skin reversed what gravity had done to her face.  The deeper lift gives a very natural, long-lasting result.
