Anti-Aging Cosmetic Surgery Options in Santa Barbara

The aging process happens every day and nothing can stop it but with the help of cosmetic procedures we can turn back the clock on your appearance a few years or more.

For Moderate Wrinkles and Sagging
Face Lift surgery is the best option for those who have moderate wrinkles and sagging skin on the face and neck. This surgery will reposition, redefine, tighten skin, and support deep tissues with the end result looking natural and rejuvenated.

For Mild Wrinkles
Some people may be experiencing signs of aging but are not quite ready for a full face lift. At our Santa Barbara Cosmetic Surgery Center, we offer minimally-invasive surgery options for the forehead, cheeks, eyes, neck, and hands that will give noticeable improvement with less cost and lower downtime.

For Early Signs of Aging
If you’re not ready for surgery, there are medical spa treatment options. Dr. Perkins is the founder and owner of Evolutions Medical in Spa Santa Barbara where clients can have non-invasive skin tightening treatments done including Total Tightening and Ultherapy. Both are skin tightening and collagen-boosting treatments that result in a firmer, “fresher” look.

Face Lifts by Santa Barbara Cosmetic Surgeon Dr. Perkins Look “Moore” Natural, Less Operated

Dr. Terry Perkins of Santa Barbara Cosmetic Surgery Center believes in the importance of natural beauty. His cosmetic surgery procedures enhance facial appearance without looking like a cosmetic surgery procedure has been done . Dr. Perkins is an expert in facial rejuvenation face lifts leaving the patient with a rested, non-operated look.


It is cosmetic surgeons like Dr. Perkins, whose expertise allow him to perform face lift surgeries that look natural, that celebrities seek out to keep all of us wondering.
For instance, in a recent Fox News article titled Plastic Surgeons Weigh in on Demi Moore’s Pretty Face, Hollywood plastic surgeons contemplate the actress’s rumored cosmetic surgeries. Although they are left guessing whether or not the star has had a face lift, one thing they agree upon is that “As a 47-year-old, she would be defying all laws of nature by looking so good without true surgery, but she certainly could have a perfect combination of good genes, good fillers (such as Restylane or Juvederm), good skin care and Botox.”


Demi knows good skincare and most likely, a good cosmetic surgeon. If she has had cosmetic surgery it’s gone undetected from tabloids and paparazzi for decades due to her natural look—the same non-operated appearance that Dr. Perkins has perfected with his own patients through facial cosmetic surgery or through non-operated procedures such as Dr. Perkins’ Layered Liquid Lift – a non-surgical face lift.


The Fox News article speculates that Demi underwent eyelid surgery, perhaps an eyelid lift in order to revive her look. Cosmetic Surgery Center Santa Barbara offers eyelid lift procedures that result in a re-energized, more youthful look. There is a range of Santa Barbara eyelid surgeries available, depending on a patient’s needs, and Dr. Perkins treats each patient on a case-by-case basis. He goes more in depth about various eyelid surgeries in a past blog post.


Take a hint from Demi. Learn more about enhancing your natural beauty with one of Dr. Perkins rejuvenating face lifts, eye lifts, or even a non-invasive procedure, such as The Layered Liquid Lift.

Santa Barbara Cosmetic Surgery Center Provides Non-Invasive Treatments Such as Dermal Fillers, Botox, Dysport

For those of us who are unhappy with the signs of aging that have popped up over the years, but are hesitant to make any surgical changes Santa Barbara cosmetic surgeon Dr. Terry Perkins provides alternative options. At Cosmetic Surgery Center Santa Barbara, Dr. Perkins performs various cosmetic surgeries, as well as providing non-invasive treatments using dermal fillers to reverse the signs of aging and anti-wrinkle treatments (such as Botox and Dysport). Dr. Perkins can perform these non-invasive anti-aging procedures in his Santa Barbara office.

Dermal fillers are designed to be injected into the skin to diminish the appearance of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. They can also be used to correct depressions in the skin, scarring, and other skin imperfections. Dr. Perkins believes in tailoring the procedure to the clients’ personal needs. That is why he offers a variety of dermal fillers including Restylane, Perlane, Radiesse, and Juvederm. Results are instantaneous and can last from six months to a year or more. Dr. Perkins has also developed a non-surgical face lift using a unique “layering” technique of dermal fillers that can take 10 years off your face.

Anti-wrinkle treatments such as Botox or Dysport treat overactive muscles that contract to form wrinkles and are a great option for reducing the wrinkles on your forehead or around the eyes. Botox or Dypsort are FDA approved and the results typically last 3 to 4 months.

Ask Dr. Perkins – Are There New Facelift Options?

Q: Hi Dr. Perkins. I am ready to explore facelift options and since I can only take limited time off from my job for recovery, I am wondering if you perform any facelifts that are less invasive with a shorter recovery time?

A: A facelift is a big commitment and if you feel you do not have adequate time for recovery, then exploring other options is a smart idea. Recently I introduced the Layered Liquid Lift at Evolutions Medical Spa Santa Barbara – a luxurious, day-spa that I founded for people to receive medical grade aesthetic treatments.
The Layered Liquid Lift is a non-surgical facelift done by using various injectable dermal fillers in a unique layering technique that transforms the face from the inside out. The Layered Liquid Lift will plump the skin, filling in wrinkles, restoring fullness and enhancing facial features, similar to what a surgical facelift can do. The procedure takes about 90 minutes and lasts about 12 to 18 months.
The benefit of the Layered Liquid Lift is that it will give you a preview of what you can expect with a traditional surgical facelift without having to undergo the surgery and recovery. A great option for you until you feel ready to commit to a surgical facelift.
