What is a Facelift?

A facelift is a surgical procedure that is performed to reduce the visible signs of sagging and hollowness in the face and neck for a more youthful appearance. Aging can result in the reduction of collagen, fat volume, and elasticity to the skin. You may start to notice the contours of the face are less defined and a pronounced emergence of jowls, loose skin around the throat, and unsightly neck bands.

AM I A CANDIDATE FOR FACELIFT SURGERY?

A facelift can give you a fresh new look. But not everyone is the ideal candidate for this type of procedure. You would need to meet the following criteria:

  • You are in good overall health
  • Your facial skin still holds some degree of flexibility and elasticity
  • The bone structure remains aesthetically balanced.
  • Above all, you are seeking a more youthful facial appearance

WHY CHOOSE ARDESH FACELIFT?

Dr. Farhad Ardeshirpour is a double-board certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon performing mini-facelift surgery exclusively in Irvine. Dr. Ardesh has over 13 years of plastic surgery experience and he is a graduate from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte medical school in 2008. His current affiliations include Loma Linda University Medical Center.

WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT WITH A FACELIFT?

A facelift procedure is performed to revitalize the skin and tissue from the cheekbones toward the collarbone to tighten the skin along the cheeks, jawline, and around the neck. While some facelift surgeries are done to address all of these areas, separate procedures such as a neck lift or a cheek lift can be performed if only a single area requires care. Contact our office today to see if the best mini facelift in Irvine is right for you.

You will be administered general anesthesia or conscious sedation during the procedure. Depending on the extent of the surgery, the operation may take anywhere from two to five hours.

During the procedure, incisions are customized to the patient. This means that each incision is carefully located and concealed in the natural creases around the ears.

Once the incisions are made, the skin and connective tissues are raised from the structure of the face and neck and surgically arranged to restore the contours of the face and rejuvenate your appearance to look more youthful and vibrant.

After the procedure is complete, excess skin and tissue are cut away and all incisions are closed with absorbable sutures.

WHAT IS THE RECOVERY PROCESS AFTER A FACELIFT SURGICAL PROCEDURE?

Dr. Ardesh will cover your incisions in bandages to start the healing process and reduce swelling. You may still find some light swelling and bruising around the operation site. This is normal. After one to three days, Dr. Ardesh will remove the bandages.

You will be able to resume normal activities in 10 to 14 days. The healing process is typically quicker and more successful if you sleep with your head elevated during your recovery.

AT WHAT AGE SHOULD I CONSIDER A FACELIFT?

The aging process is not the same for everyone, so there is no set age at which you should consider having this type of surgery. That decision is reliant upon your health and your happiness with your current appearance. Dr. Ardesh has performed facelift surgery in Irvine on patients in their mid-40's and patients in their late-60's.

HOW MUCH YOUNGER WILL I LOOK AFTER A FACELIFT?

First and foremost, do not expect a facelift to stop or even reverse the natural aging process. Patients who consider having facelift surgery will do so with the goal of rejuvenating and refreshing their appearance. The results of the procedure vary, based on the patient's health, lifestyle choices, the condition of the skin around the face and neck and quality of underlying bone structure.

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

That is not a concern for patients as Dr. Ardesh uses only state-of-the-art surgical techniques to replenish the skin for results that look naturally beautiful. At no point do these procedures involve the pulling of the skin for a tight appearance, nor do they modify the corners of the mouth.

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

This type of surgery targets only the portion of the face at the cheekbones to the upper neck. The procedure does not address these areas of the face, however, if you are displeased with your appearance at the brow or eyes, Dr. Ardesh may suggest a brow lift procedure or eyelid surgery to target these areas as well.
