Business Spotlight: La Jollan Dr. Scott Barttelbort explains the evolution of facial rejuvenation



With the evolution of non-surgical facial rejuvenation, anti-aging has become a multi-faceted and multi-staged approach for all generations (and also important to note for more and more men).

It used to be that intervention typically did not occur until surgical procedures were indicated. Today with more resources readily available, patients are now becoming proactive in warding off the signs of aging with non-surgical preventative measures and “maintenance” procedures. These include treatments such as facial injectables, laser technologies, and advanced skincare. These modalities are being adopted into even the younger generation’s regimens and are playing an important role in not only creating a more rejuvenated look, but additionally a more aesthetically pleasing appearance.

Of course surgery continues to hold a key role in facial rejuvenation. When done properly, surgery can make a remarkable difference without creating a “surgical” appearance. Dr. Scott Barttelbort offers a variety of facelift techniques that he tailors for each individual patient. Whether it is a mini-facelift, a short-scar technique, a full-correction facelift, or an endoscopic approach, these can all be done in a natural yet effective way. Together, surgical and non-surgical procedures can have a synergistic effect maximizing the results of one another.

Dr. Barttelbort and his team take great pride in recognizing each patient is unique and work hard to create a treatment plan that is appropriate and personalized for every patient.

Dr. Barttelbort has been a practicing plastic surgeon for more than 20 years and is well-versed in all aspects of cosmetic surgery for the face and body. He is a member of both the American Society of Plastic Surgeons and the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, the country’s most respected plastic surgery organization. He received his plastic surgery training at Yale University School of Medicine and is former Chief of Plastic Surgery of Scripps Memorial Hospital in La Jolla, California.
