Plasma Lyft

Dr. Lacerna’s signature surgery

The plasma lyft facelift, Dr. Lacerna’s signature surgery, is a safe and effective procedure that combines three great cosmetic techniques for long-lasting, transformative rejuvenation.

Benefits of Facelift

Facelift can make a series of aesthetic upgrades to the face and neck, including:

  • Tightening lax skin
  • Minimizing lines and wrinkles
  • Removing fat deposits under the face to restore definition to the chin and jawline
  • Eliminating sagging skin and folds on the neck
  • Repositioning soft tissue that has drooped to the bottom of the face
  • Restoring the “INVERTED TRIANGLE OF YOUTH” shape to the face, from a square

Dr. Lacerna utilizes advanced techniques to avoid creating a “pulled” look on the face. This allows patients to enjoy facial rejuvenation without it being obvious that they have had surgery performed.
