What is a facelift?
A facelift is a surgical procedure that lifts sagging skin, removes excess skin and fat, and repositions fat and muscle to restore a more youthful look.
Though the facelift may seem like a straightforward procedure, Dr. Rostami takes an individualized approach to helping you get a more youthful look.
How is a facelift performed?
The specifics of your facelift depend on your beauty goals and aesthetic needs. Some patients may require more than one technique, while others may not.
Components of your facelift may include:
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.
Recovery from a lower facelift is quick, and the procedure creates natural results.
The standard facelift addresses moderate-to-severe signs of aging that affect your 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 muscle and fat to rejuvenate your look.
Eyelid surgery repairs droopy upper eyelids and eye bags. Dr. Rostami is an experienced eyelid surgeon and has performed thousands of surgeries. Your eyelid surgery may be included with your lower or standard facelift.
To address sagging skin on the neck, or what you may call your turkey neck, your surgeon performs a neck lift. The goal of the procedure is to minimize or eliminate excess skin, wrinkles, and hanging tissue from your neck area.
In addition to surgical facelift treatments, Rostami OPC also performs liquid facelifts. This noninvasive approach freshens your look with cosmetic injections, including Botox® and dermal fillers, to minimize the appearance of lines and wrinkles and add volume under your skin.
What can I expect during a facelift consultation?
You can expect a comprehensive evaluation when you come in for a facelift consultation. The doctors ask detailed questions to fully understand your beauty concerns and ultimate aesthetic goals. Then, they evaluate your skin and talk to you about your facelift treatment options.
To get the best results, Dr. Rostami may suggest a combination of surgical procedures with other minimally invasive or noninvasive treatments so you get the best results without looking plastic.
