Summertime in Southern California gets very little rain, which means more sunny days to be out at the beach, riding bikes and just enjoying the warm sunny temperatures. However, all of these sunny days can lead to major skin problems in the future.
“The sun accelerates the aging process in the skin,” says Dr. Ambe. “This is why it is so important to wear sunscreen. Of course, if you didn’t wear it when you were younger, the effects are going to show up in your 30s, 40s and 50s.”
The sun’s UV rays attacks the collagen fibers in the skin and causes them to break down, which makes the skin lose its strength and elasticity over time. An Orange County facelift can reduce the sagging by pulling the face up. “I love this procedure because of the artistic aspect,” says Dr. Ambe. “The intricacies of the facelift must be respected to avoid that abnormally tight appearance. My procedure is all about achieving the most natural-looking results.”
Along with the facelift, Orange County plastic surgeon Dr. Ambe may recommend additional procedures to ensure the desired result is achieved. Due to only the lower half of the face being addressed in a facelift, it is common to also have a brow, neck or eyelid lift along with the facelift.
For Orange County plastic surgery, Newport Beach Plastic Surgery offers state-of-the-art procedures at the 7,000 square foot ambulatory accredited surgical center. In concert with a fully trained and certified staff of nurses and anesthesiologists, Dr. Ambe offers a number of cosmetic procedures to help Orange County residents be the best they can be.
And a bonus for reality TV show fans, Dr. Ambe is somewhat of a celebrity for his appearances on Season 3, 4 and 5 of the Real Housewives of Orange County. Facelift procedures were highlighted on Season 4 and 5 when he performed one on Tamra Barney’s mother and Lynne Curtin. The results can be seen on his Web site.
