What is a Facelift?

Aging can bring about a sagging or hollowed facial appearance due to a loss of collagen and fat volume in the skin. These deficiencies result in a lack of elasticity and flexibility, rounding out the contours of the face and bringing about defined jowls along the jawline and other imperfections such as vertical neck bands and loose neck skin. A facelift is designed to correct these issues and return the youthful luster to your face and neck.

AM I A CANDIDATE FOR FACELIFT SURGERY?

Facelift surgery in Temecula can give your skin a rejuvenated glow. But we must first determine whether or not you are a good candidate for this type of surgical procedure. If these all apply to you, then facelift surgery may be right for you:

  • You are in good general health
  • Your facial skin continues to demonstrate some level of flexibility and elasticity.
  • Your underlying bone structure remains aesthetically balanced.
  • You want a refreshed facial appearance that looks natural.

What Results Can I Expect with a Facelift?

Facelift surgery is a process by which the skin and soft tissues located along the cheekbones to the clavicle are tightened so as to restore definition to the face and neck.. This procedure targets the cheeks, jawline, and neck areas all together. However, some patients may only need one area addressed and a single cheek lift or neck lift may be performed separately.

Call Dr. Ardesh to schedule a consultation to find out how the best mini facelift in Temecula can restore your youthful appearance.

The facelift procedure typically lasts anywhere from two to five hours and the patient may be administered general anesthesia or localized conscious sedation during surgery.

Incisions are custom-tailored to each patient based on the type of procedure and extent of the work that needs to be performed. These are placed near the ears so the natural creases in the skin around this area conceal the incisions to keep them undetectable once fully healed.

Once the incisions are made, the skin and connective tissues are lifted from the bone structures and re-draped to create a refreshed, youthful aesthetic.

When the procedure is complete, the excess skin is cut away and removed and the incisions closed with absorbable sutures.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM RECOVERY AFTER A FACELIFT SURGICAL PROCEDURE?

Dr. Ardesh will dress your incisions with bandages to reduce swelling and begin the healing process. You may still notice some bruising and swollen areas at the operation site. This is normal and should go away in a few days. Keeping your head elevated when you sleep will help expedite healing.

The dressing will be removed by Dr. Ardesh a day or two after the procedure is performed and you can expect to return to your normal routine in 10 to 14 days.

AT WHAT AGE SHOULD I CONSIDER A FACELIFT?

Everyone grows older differently, so there is no recommended age at which you should consider having facelift surgery. If you are good candidate for the procedure and you are unsatisfied with certain aspects of your appearance, then it might be time to think about having a facelift. Patients ranging in age from their 40's to their 60's have come to Dr. Ardesh for facelift surgery but this procedure can be performed on older patients as well.

HOW MUCH YOUNGER WILL I LOOK AFTER A FACELIFT?

The results may vary because we all age so differently. But while a facelift won't stop the aging process, it can help to replenish your skin and bring a youthful vigor to your facial appearance. The most successful facelift results are dependent upon a patient's lifestyle, bone structure, and skin condition at the time of the operation. Dr. Ardesh performs facelift surgery to create a natural, rejuvenated, refreshed appearance of the face and neck.

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

Dr. Ardesh employs only the most advanced techniques for performing plastic surgery. These methods are designed to produce natural-looking results and are not designed to pull the skin taut or in any way change the corners of the mouth during surgery.

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

Facelift surgery is intended only for correcting the lines and sagging of the skin from the cheekbones to the upper portion of the neck. This type of procedure does not address the upper third of the face. But this area can also show signs of aging through sagging and excess skin around the eyes and brow. Dr. Ardesh may suggest you undergo eyelid surgery or a brow lift in order to correct these issues.
