Cosmetic Surgery

Dr. Bock, of California Skin & Laser Center in Stockton and Lodi, CA, offers several minimally invasive surgical procedures for aesthetic enhancement. Although non-surgical cosmetic dermatology procedures such as Botox, Juvéderm, Restylane, and tissue tightening have reduced the demand for cosmetic surgery, it remains an excellent solution for patients seeking more dramatic, long-lasting results than injectables can offer. With our precision techniques, the risk and downtime of surgical procedures are minimized


Also known as the S-Lift or Short-Scar Facelift, for most people the MACS-Lift can accomplish virtually anything that traditional facelift surgery can, with less cutting, less expense, and less downtime. However, the MACS-lift is not the best procedure for people with very large necks. For that, the neck lift surgery is best. In the MACS-lift a small incision is made in front of the ear, where it is camouflaged by the natural contours, and there is no incision on the scalp or behind the ears. Recovery typically takes less than a week. Are you wondering what you might look like after a MACS-Lift from our offices in Stockton and Lodi, CA? Just find a picture of yourself that was taken about a decade ago.

Temporal Brow Lift

As we get older, our brows — particularly our lateral brows — tend to descend, creating a “hooded” appearance to the eye. This now can be corrected with a limited procedure called a temporal brow lift. This is performed under local anesthesia and it involves making two small incisions in the hairline, above each lateral brow. The skin is loosened so that the brow can be elevated and the crow’s feet reduced. The deeper tissues are then tightened so that the brow can be elevated by the pull on the deeper tissues. Usually a very small bit of skin is removed. This corrects the hooding and, because the incision is in the hairline and is closed without any tension, the scar is almost always invisible.
