What is a Facelift?

The skin can begin to lose collagen, elasticity, and fat volume when we age. As a result, the facial appearance can start to look hollowed and sagging near the cheekbones, the jawline, and the neck. There is less definition around the contours of the face while the jowls grow larger and more pronounced. You may also notice vertical neck bands and loose skin around the throat. But facelift surgery in Sherman Oaks can help to repair the impacts of aging on the skin.

Am I a Candidate for Facelift Surgery in Sherman Oaks?

Facelift surgery can be a good solution to repair these imperfections around the face and neck. If you are considering facial surgery to help repair and rejuvenate the skin for a more youthful appearance you will need to first meet the following requirements:

  • You must be in good overall health
  • Your facial skin must still retain some degree of flexibility and elasticity
  • Your face demonstrates aesthetically balanced bone structure
  • You want to rejuvenate the skin for a more youthful appearance around the face and neck.

Why Choose Ardesh Facelift Sherman Oaks?

Dr. Farhad Ardeshirpour is a double-board certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon with more than 13 years experience in this field. Dr. Ardesh is affiliated with Loma Linda University Medical Center and he is an exclusive practitioner of mini facelift surgery in Sherman Oaks. He is a graduate of University of North Carolina at Charlotte medical school.

What Results Can I Expect with a Facelift?

The surgery is designed to give the skin a smoother, fresher appearance by tightening the skin and the soft tissues from the cheekbones to the collarbone. This will make your cheeks, jowl line, and neck looking refreshed and younger. Some patients may nor require attention in all three of those areas of the face and neck, but cheek lift or neck lift surgery can be performed to pinpoint these specific regions separately. Schedule an appointment for a consultation with Dr. Ardesh to see if the best mini facelift in Sherman Oaks is right for you.

The facelift procedure can last anywhere from two to five hours depending on the extent of the work being performed. You may receive a general anesthesia or conscious sedation during the operation.

Dr. Ardesh will tailor the incision points specifically for you, so they are carefully located for concealment in the natural creases that are found in front of and behind your ears. Once the incisions are made, Dr. Ardesh will lift the skin and connective tissue from the underlying bone structure of the face and re-drape them to give you a more robust and youthful appearance.

Once the procedure is complete, the excess skin and tissue is severed and discarded and absorbable sutures are used to close the incisions.

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

The recovery process begins once the last sutures are clipped and the incisions are dressed with bandages. These dressings will help to keep the swelling down at the surgery site. You may notice the areas are still swollen and bruised when you come home, but this is all entirely normal and should start to go away after a day or to.

Dr. Ardesh will remove the bandages soon after and you can start to resume normal activities in roughly 10 to 14 days. To help speed up the healing process, Dr. Ardesh may recommend that you sleep with your head in an elevated position.

AT WHAT AGE SHOULD I CONSIDER A FACELIFT?

There is only one age when you should consider a facelift – when you notice that you are feeling less than 100% about your facial appearance. Everyone ages differently and the effects of aging may start to emerge sooner or later for each of us. But when you start to see sagging, loose or excess skin and lines or wrinkles showing up in places where there were none previously, then you may want to consider a facelift. Dr. Ardesh has performed facelift surgery on patients in their 40's and patients in their 60's. Even older in some cases.

HOW MUCH YOUNGER WILL I LOOK AFTER A FACELIFT?

There is no way to tell exactly how much younger you will look because everyone ages differently. Some patients come into the office expecting a facelift to stop the aging process entirely. This is not realistic nor credible. But a facelift can take years off your face and neck by restoring the damage that aging has done thus far. The only factors that can play a credible role in the results of your procedure are the condition of the skin and underlying bone structures as well as current lifestyle choices.

Dr. Ardesh performs facelift surgery to leave the patient with revitalized skin that looks natural and refreshed.

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

At Ardesh Facial Plastic Surgery in Sherman Oaks, Dr. Ardesh relies solely on modern, state-of-the-art surgical techniques to ensure to give you results that look natural and refreshed. A facelift procedure is supposed to revitalize your appearance not dramatically alter it. So you need not worry about the corners of the mouth looking tight or pulled.

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

Facelift surgery will not eliminate lines or sagging in the forehead or around the eyes. That's because this procedure is intended to focus solely on the skin between the cheekbones and the collarbone of the neck. But if you are unhappy with your appearance in the upper part of the face at the eyes and forehead, Dr. Ardesh may recommend additional procedures after your facelift such as a brow lift and/or eyelid surgery to address these areas.
