Today it’s more important than ever that you look as good as you feel.

People from all walks of life are opting to roll back the hands of time and restore their youthful good looks.

You can too with one of Dr Francis Palmer’s FR Signature Facelifts.

Facelift Surgery

We live in a youth and beauty oriented society where everyone wants to look as young as they feel.  It’s natural for you to want a youthful, vibrant, naturally attractive appearance.  Facelift Surgery can help you turn back the clock, giving you a natural look that is both youthful and stunningly beautiful.

With age, our faces loose their “three-dimensional” quality and begin to lack the depth of a more youthful appearance. By the mid to late 30′s, one begins to see evidence of the inevitable pull of gravity on the soft tissue of the cheeks. This sagging tissue falls inward, towards the nose and chin, creating the “nasolabial folds”, “jowls” and “turkey neck”. This natural, aging process thins out the face making the cheeks more angular as the face becomes elongated and relatively more masculine in appearance. Dr Francis Palmer’s Fr Signature Facelifts are designed to create natural, stunning, youthful and exquisite beauty.

“The most important factor in getting a natural, soft, youthful look after your Face Lift, is to create the proper shape to the cheeks along with tightening, lifting and the removal of excess tissue. This used to mean either shaping tissues to reveal the cheek or using cheek implants to impart the proper shape during the Face Lift Procedure. Now, with the addition of longer-lasting Dermal Fillers (Perlane, Voluma, Radiesse), this shape can be created without the use of implants. It’s like trying out your new cheeks before you commit to the permanency of cheek implants all with less surgery and recovery time.” – Dr. Francis Palmer.

Dr. Francis Palmer’s Facelift Surgery Benefits

faceliftphoto2Exquisite Youthful Beauty
Dr Francis Palmer performs Facelift Surgery to turn back the hands of time, making your face more youthful and naturally attractive.

Reverse Sagging of the Face & Neck
As we age, the tissues of the face and neck lose their elasticity and begin to sag. This makes the face appear aged and tired. Facelift Surgery lifts this sagging while removing excess tissue and skin to create a look that’s youthful, vibrant and beautiful.

Create Youthful Attractive Shape & Contour
As facial tissues weaken, the skin looses elasticity and fat shifts from its former youthful shape. Dr Francis Palmer performs Facelift Surgery to shape, contour and create a more youthful, naturally beautiful face.

“The most important aspect of any Facelift Surgery is not what tissue layer was lifted or how much skin was removed but rather the shape of the face that’s achieved by the procedure.” – Francis R Palmer III MD

Diminish Unwanted Lines & Wrinkles
Removing excess skin, during Facelift Surgery, will diminish the appearance of unwanted lines and wrinkles. Chemical Peels, Neuromodulators (Botox, Xeomin, Dysport), Dermal Fillers
Further reduction can be obtained with Chemical Peels (Skin Rejuvenation), Botox Injections (Neuromodulators) and Dermal Fillers (Perlane, Restylane, Juvederm, Voluma, Radiesse and Sculptra) at the same time as the Facelift Surgery.

faceliftphoto3 Signature Facial Contour® Facelift

The Facial Contour® Facelift, a trademarked surgical technique developed by world-renowned Beverly Hills Facial Plastic and Cosmetic Surgeon, Francis R. Palmer III, M.D. maybe just what’s needed to regain your natural youthful beauty. Dr. Francis Palmer’s Trademarked Facial Contour® Facelift leaves you looking more natural, youthful and attractive.

Traditional facelifts, in Dr Palmer’s opinion, lack artistic vision. They merely take sagging tissue and stretch it over the cheeks. That’s why they look “tight and unnatural.” Dr. Palmer has incorporated artistic flare into his facelifts elevating the procedure to a whole new level of natural, youthful, exquisite beauty where you don’t look different, you become a more natural, youthful and refined version of “yourself”. The Facial Contour® Facelift is truly a blending of art and science for the creation of natural beauty.


This procedure pioneered and performed exclusively by Dr. Francis Palmer is technically more difficult because of its heavy reliance on artistic judgment and extensive technical skill. The goal of this procedure is to deftly and artistically sculpt the soft tissues around the existing features, although it is occasionally necessary to enhance their shape through the use of Dermal Fillers or Cheek Implants. Combining well-camouflaged incisions with the manipulation of excess skin, SMAS muscle and fat, the cheeks and nasolabial folds are meticulously sculpted. The result is a more natural and youthful appearance. The incisions are camouflaged and well-hidden within the contours of the ear and extend into the temple and posterior hairline. Dr Palmer wants the “very best” for his patients including scars that are minimally, if at all visible. Unlike, some Facelift Surgeons that have their assistant close the Facelift incisions, Dr Palmer personally performs the entire procedure, including the incision closure to ensure the best looking scars possible.


After surgery, Dr. Palmer requires you to stay in an aftercare facility for 2 nights and recommends that you rest for an additional week thereafter. Makeup can usually be applied 8 days after the procedure at which time you can slowly resume limited activity. Patients can travel home (transcontinental or international)

8-10 days after the surgery. Full activity, without restrictions, can usually be resumed after 1 month. There is minimal discomfort following Dr Palmer’s Facelifts for which oral pain medications are prescribed.

Signature Mid-Face Facelift

Dr Francis Palmer’s mid face version of his trademarked, Fr Signature Facial Contour® Facelift . The mid-face is sculpted, contoured and lifted using similar facelift techniques used in the Facial Contour® Facelift. Dr Palmer uses this facelift technique when the mid-face shows significant signs of aging but the neck retains its youthful contour and shape. Recovery and travel times are the same as for the Facial Contour® Facelift.

Patients come to Dr. Francis Palmer from all over the world for his Fr Signature Face Lift Procedures.
