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 Burlingame 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 Burlingame 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 Burlingame History
Multiple sources indicate that it was through William C. Ralston that Anson Burlingame became aware of the desirability of an estate on the Peninsula. Ralston, a founder of the Bank of California, made his fortune in the development of the Comstock Lode. He admired the Peninsula’s warm, tranquil setting of oak-clad rolling hills nestled between San Francisco Bay and the Pacific Coastal Range and created his magnificent estate at Belmont. One of the many famous guests invited to Ralston’s estate was the United States Minister to China, appointed by President Lincoln, the Honorable Anson Burlingame. Following Anson Burlingame’s death in 1870, D. O. Mills became the guardian of the Burlingame estate, and according to a January 29th, 1872 map also on file with the County Recorder’s Office, Mills sold the property to Ralston.
According to the account in Constance Lister’s 1934 manuscript ‘A History of Burlingame,’ however, Ralston purchased the property where Burlingame now stands to the southern limits of the old Buri Buri Rancho from Joseph Henry Poett, who inherited the property from his son-in-law, William D. M. Howard. She further states that it was Ralston who gave Burlingame a site for a future town on his holdings west of El Camino Real to be known as the Town of Burlingame in 1868. This conflicts with an account in the San Mateo Gazette of June 13, 1874, which states that Messrs. Sharon and Ralston had just purchased 400 acres of Burlingame’s land where they had begun plans to lay out a town.
Though some survey work was undertaken, and several local property owners hired John McLaren, head gardener for the Howard Family, to landscape their frontages on El Camino Real with elms and eucalyptus, no actual construction had begun by the time of Ralston’s death in 1875. At that time the property was taken over by his partner, William Sharon, who used the property as a dairy farm to supply the Palace Hotel in San Francisco, which he had also acquired at Ralston’s death.
Following the death of Senator Sharon, his son-in-law, Francis Newlands, assumed control of the property. It was Newlands who finally began the subdivision of the property, beginning with the Burlingame Country Club and the surrounding five cottages in 1893, and followed quickly by the creation of the Burlingame train station in 1894. A map, dated March 15, 1897 and titled Map No. 1 of the Town of Burlingame, showed the layout of the town covering the area from El Camino Real to Dwight Road and Peninsular Avenue to Burlingame Avenue. In 1901, the first two stores opened for business on Burlingame Square, across from the train station.
