The Visage Rapid Recovery Face Lift
As we age, the youthful definition of the neck and jawline is often lost. Sagging or loose skin, excess fat, and lack of muscle tone are the most common concerns. The effects of gravity become more apparent. Do you exercise, eat right, and take supplements but still look old? Look tired even when you aren’t? Here in the Bay Area, we all strive to maintain that healthy Bay Area look, but we still age. The Visage Albany Facelift is your solution!
Do you have:
- Sagging Skin
- Fat Pouches
- Wrinkles from too much sun
- Drooping Cheeks
- Excess skin under chin
The Visage Facelift procedure lifts the sagging muscles of the neck, cheeks, and jowls, eliminating them and creating youthful and natural definition, without the resulting tight look of older facelift and necklift techniques. The Visage Rapid Recovery Lift differs because it addresses the deeper tissue by going under the muscle, sliding it upwards into its original youthful position.The fat and muscle are lifted and tightened, placing the incision line inside the ear. This technique results in less bruising and swelling. Scars heal better because there is no tension on superficial layers and skin. This face lift results in a natural, softer look and creates long-lasting definition along the jawline and neck, not tightness. You’ll look your best in the healthy, active lifestyle that is Albany living!
The procedure can be performed under local anesthesia or twilight sedation in our private state-of-the-art office, typically without general anesthesia. The procedure usually takes about 2 hours. Swelling and bruising subside fairly quickly, allowing most patients to return to work in two weeks. Patients usually wear their hair up within a few weeks without a visible scar.

Some Albany History
Albany’s heritage is intertwined with its location along the eastern shore of San Francisco Bay, its temperate climate and its unique natural features. This environment supported the City’s first known residents, a tribe of Native Americans known as the Costanoans (coast dwellers) or Ohlone, who lived at the base of Albany Hill along Cerrito Creek. Shell fragments and grinding rocks found at Creekside Park serve as a reminder of these people who lived in the Albany area until the early 19th Century, when the Spanish land barons arrived in California.
Gold mining created a demand for dynamite, and Albany became home to a number of powder plants at Fleming Point, which is the present site of Golden Gate Fields Racetrack. This industry died out in 1905 after a series of explosions and fires. In 1906, the great San Francisco earthquake and fire occurred, resulting in a large migration of families from San Francisco to the East Bay. This significantly impacted development in Albany and other nearby jurisdictions.
Incorporation: In 1908, area residents protested the dumping of Berkeley garbage in their community by incorporating and became the City of Ocean View. In 1909, voters changed the name of the city, primarily to distinguish the City from many other communities in the area with the name of Ocean View. On a vote of 38 – 6, Albany was chosen as the new name, in honor of the birthplace of the City’s first mayor, Mayor Frank Roberts. In 1927, Albany voters adopted the City’s first Charter, giving the City full control over its own governance. In 2008 the City of Albany celebratied its Centennial.
