What is a Facelift?

A Facelift is a cosmetic procedure designed to rejuvenate the face by removing excess skin, tightening underlying tissues, and repositioning the skin on the face and neck. This procedure helps to smooth out deep folds and lift drooping skin, resulting in a firmer and more youthful facial appearance. Facelifts can be tailored to meet each patient’s unique needs and are often performed with other rejuvenating procedures like eyelid surgery, neck lifts, or brow lifts. Our Facelift procedures include:

Standard Facelift

The standard facelift addresses moderate-to-severe signs of aging that affect the midface and neck. During the procedure, your plastic surgeon makes small incisions around your ears and temple at your hairline to lift your skin, remove any excess skin and fat, and then reposition the muscles and fat to rejuvenate your look.

Lower Facelift

Your surgeon may recommend a mini-facelift if you have only mild skin sagging and jowling. During the minimally invasive procedure, small incisions are made along the hairline around your ear to lift and refresh sagging cheeks and jowls.

Candidates for a Facelift

Ideal candidates for a facelift are those who experience moderate to severe facial wrinkling and sagging skin, typically in their 40s to 70s. Candidates should be in good general health, non-smokers, and have realistic expectations about the results. We recommend scheduling a consultation at Rostami OPC to determine if a facelift suits you. During your consultation, our specialists will evaluate your facial structure, skin quality, and aesthetic goals to determine if a facelift is the right option for you.

Facelift Treatment

The Facelift procedure at Rostami OPC is performed under general anesthesia and takes about two to four hours to complete, depending on the extent of the surgery. Incisions are typically made around the hairline and behind the ears to minimize visible scarring. The surgeon will carefully lift and reposition the facial skin and muscles through these incisions, remove excess skin, and tighten the remaining skin.

Facelift Recovery and Aftercare

Recovery from a facelift involves a brief downtime, with most patients needing two weeks of recovery before returning to their normal activities. Swelling, bruising, and discomfort can be expected but are manageable with prescribed pain medication. Patients should keep their heads elevated and avoid strenuous activity during the initial recovery phase. Follow-up visits are essential to monitor the healing process.

Facelift Results

The results of your facelift are visible once your swelling and bruising subside, typically within several weeks. The surgery’s results are long-lasting, helping you look and feel younger than before.
