What is a Facelift?

The loss of collagen, elasticity, and fat volume in the skin are signs of aging. These are especially visible on the face where your appearance can start to appear sagging and hollowed along the cheekbones, the jawline, and the neck. Loose skin, distinct jowls, vertical bands on the neck and excess skin at the throat, these can all be smoothed over for a younger facial appearance with facelift surgery in Encino.

Am I a Candidate for Facelift Surgery?

Plastic surgery can restore that youthful glow to your facial appearance. However, Dr. Ardesh must first determine if you are a good candidate for this procedure by meeting these requirements:

  • You are in good overall health
  • Your facial skin must still demonstrates some level of flexibility and elasticity
  • Your bone structure remains aesthetically balanced.
  • You want a refreshed, youthful appearance.

Why Choose Ardesh Facelift Encino?

A graduate of the University of North Carolina at Charlotte medical school in 2008, Dr. Farhad Ardeshirpour is a double-board certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon with 13 years of experience in performing plastic surgery. He is currently affiliated with Loma Linda University Medical Center and continues to be an exclusive practitioner of mini facelift surgery in Encino.

What Results Can I Expect with a Facelift?

Facelift surgery entails the use of special surgical methods that bring a tightness to the skin and soft tissues located at the cheekbones and extending to the clavicle (collar bone). The procedure will leave you with a more youthful aesthetic at the cheeks, jowl line, and neck together. For those patients who only need some work done in one of these areas, Dr. Ardesh can perform surgery separately of that entire portion of the face, such as a cheek lift or a neck lift.

Patients may receive general anesthesia or conscious sedation and the procedure often lasts somewhere between two to five hours, depending on the extent of the facelift surgery being performed.

Before the procedure begins, Dr. Ardesh will tailor the placement of the incisions exclusively for every patient. They are typically placed for concealment in the creases of the skin located behind and in front of the ear. Once the incisions are made, the skin and connective tissues are removed from the underlying bone structures and re-draped to give your facial appearance youthful, healthy-looking skin.

After the procedure is completed, the excess skin and tissue are removed and the incisions closed with absorbable sutures.

What Can I Expect in Recovery from a Facelift Surgical Procedure?

The surgical incisions are dressed to keep the swelling down, though you may notice the surgery site swollen and bruised right after the procedure. This is completely normal and should subside shortly thereafter as the healing process begins.

To help expedite healing, Dr. Ardesh may recommend you sleep with your head in an elevated position.

The bandages should be removed from the incisions after a day or two and you can start to resume normal activities in 10 to 14 days.

AT WHAT AGE SHOULD I CONSIDER A FACELIFT?

Since we all age differently, there is no established age when you should consider having facelift surgery. The only time to consider having a facelift is if you are unsatisfied with your appearance. The procedure can address any issues may have with the skin in the face and/or neck region. The average age of our patients has been in the 40's to 60's, though older patients could be a good candidate for facial surgery as well.

HOW MUCH YOUNGER WILL I LOOK AFTER A FACELIFT?

The results of the procedure will vary from one patient to the next, based on the condition of the skin and underlying bone structures of the face as well as the lifestyle habits of the patient. While a facelift can rejuvenate the skin and help to reverse the signs of aging, do not expect this surgery to stop the aging process. You should expect to have younger, healthier looking skin after surgery.

WILL A FACELIFT LEAVE MY MOUTH CORNERS LOOKING TIGHT OR PULLED?

Dr. Ardesh relies on state of the art surgery techniques that do not incorporate any physical pulling or tightening of the skin. His methods are designed only to give you a facelift that leaves you with a clean and natural facial appearance. They do not pull the skin or alter the corners of the mouth in any way.

WILL A FACELIFT REDUCE THE APPEARANCE OF LINES IN THE FOREHEAD AND AROUND THE EYES?

Lines or sagging around the forehead or eyes will not be addressed during a facelift. This procedure is intended to reduce the signs of aging between the cheekbones and the neck. But Dr. Ardesh can discuss the concerns you have with your appearance near the upper portion of the face and he may suggest an eyelid procedure or a brow lift to bring a youthful luster to these areas as well.
