Facelift Before and After in San Francisco

This 53-year-old, woman underwent an endoscopic brow lift, lower eyelid lift, a lower face and neck lift. She had fat injections in the mid-cheek region and lip augmentation.

Patients have a multitude of questions during a facelift consultation. Questions are encouraged because the more knowledgeable the patient is, the more relaxed and confident they are when going into surgery.


Dr. Miguel Delgado, M.D. says that one question that almost all patients ask is how long their facelift will last? The answer is different for everyone, but he says approximately 8 to 10 years, even then patients will always look younger than if they didn’t have a facelift. The next concern for most patients is wondering what they will look like after surgery.

Dr. Delgado offers computer imaging to his patients, a valuable tool to help patients visualize what they might expect their results to be.


Computer imaging allows the patient to discuss with their surgeon their goals and understand what is feasible. Plastic surgery is not an exact science but understanding a patient’s objectives is very important to the surgeon.

Most patients do not want to look different; they just want to turn the clock back a bit. Bringing pictures to your surgeon of when you were younger can be an advantage. However, many patients find that when having a facelift it is the perfect time to address other issues that may have been bothering them such as; removing a hump on the nose or making it narrower, or perhaps they have a weak chin and have been considering a chin implant, some would like fuller lips. Not being able to visualize the results can be off-putting, but with computer imaging, the patient can get a good idea of what to expect.


Dr. Delgado has been using computer imaging for 25 years for his patients with fantastic results. View the video attached to see before and after pictures and computer imaging of one of Dr. Delgado’s patients.
