What Is A Facelift?

The facelift is one of the most popular aesthetic surgeries, and it's not hard to see why — it's a very effective treatment for firming up the skin around the face and creating a more youthful appearance. Dr. Shabnam Ghazizadeh frequently performs facelifts and other facial cosmetic surgeries for men and women in Newport Beach, CA who want to address a range of imperfections, from sagging skin to wrinkles. Depending on your concerns and goals for surgery, a facelift can focus on the areas around the eyes, the mid-face area and cheeks, the bottom two-thirds including the mouth, jowls, neck, and more for an all-around youthful look. The facelift technique used depends on your desired outcome, the health and condition of your skin, the degree of skin laxity, age, lifestyle, and other factors. At Dr. Ghazizadeh MD, we work closely with patients to create a facelift plan that's suited to their needs. Reach out today to schedule your consultation.

How Does A Facelift Work?

Depending on the issues you want to address, there are several approaches that may be taken for your facelift at Dr. Ghazizadeh MD. Some facelifts address the upper portion of the face while others focus on the middle and lower. Moreover, some methods are a bit more invasive than others. It's very common for some patients to have a brow lift, forehead lift, or BOTOX® and fillers to complement their results. A few of the more common facelift techniques include:

  • Lower Facelift
    This approach is used to transform the neck region, as well as the chin and jowls. Nonsurgical methods (such as a dermal filler injection) can also be applied for chin augmentation to attain a younger, tighter-looking neck.
  • Mini Facelift
    This more subtle technique involves creating a thin incision around the ears to lift the skin, smoothing the mouth and jawline for a natural-looking enhancement.
  • Mid-Facelift
    Similar to the mini lift, the mid-facelift is designed to target the cheekbones and upper jaw where loose skin can create a hollow look. The mid-facelift works nicely for those who hope to attain improvement in the lower two-thirds of the face, which also improves the look of the jowls.
  • Full Facelift
    More common for older adults, the full (or traditional) facelift involves an incision made near the hairline and down around the temples, stopping near the bottom of the ears. The underlying facial muscles are gently stretched and tightened to produce a lifted look, which softens excessive loose skin and droopy features. This facelift is reserved for men and women who have signs of advanced aging. With this lift, several techniques may be used, including blepharoplasty to address the eyes or neck reduction for the lower region.

After your facelift surgery, we will move you to a recovery room where your health can be monitored until you're cleared to return home. Prior to your facelift, Dr. Ghazizadeh will set up a post-surgery plan that will involve follow-up visits and aftercare instructions to help you heal. It's normal to have bruising and swelling, some moderate pain, and soreness, which can be reduced by prescription pain medication. You should feel and physically look normal after about a month. You can expect a smoother and younger-looking facial appearance. In all, your face will be slightly lifted and rejuvenated.
