Facelifts are a more extensive surgical procedure that can help to rejuvenate the entire face, from the forehead to the chin. A mini facelift addresses only the lower third of the face, using smaller incisions near the ears. The mini facelift is the most common type of facelift surgery performed today. A mini facelift can help to dramatically decrease jowls and restore definition to the chin.
A facelift involves one to two weeks of downtime at home while you are healing. Mini facelifts are less invasive with smaller incisions, and may result in less downtime. We will help you plan for your treatment during your consultation so you know exactly what to expect.
With any surgery, you will experience swelling, bruising and some bleeding. These side effects are normal and will begin to subside in the days and weeks following your procedure. Many people are able to return to work a week or two after their surgery. Of course, your experience will depend on the particulars of your surgery. We will work with you to formulate the optimal treatment plan for your needs so you know exactly what to expect and how to plan for your recovery.
Yes, we often combine facelift surgery with fat transfer to help restore lost volume to key areas of the face. Fat transfer removes fat via liposuction from one area of the body with excess fat, such as the abdomen or buttocks, and transfers this unwanted fat to the face to help enhance volume and restore a younger-looking appearance.
While a facelift won’t stop the aging process completely, the benefit of any surgical procedure is that it affords long-lasting rejuvenation. If you take good care of your skin, applying daily sunscreen, for example, you will be able to enjoy smoother, younger-looking skin for years. We also recommend maintaining your results with periodic non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatments such as photofacials, microneedling and/or laser skin resurfacing.
If you think your face looks older than you feel and you have loose, sagging skin with deep wrinkles and folds, particularly on your lower face and jawline, you may benefit from a facelift or mini facelift in Irvine, California. We can help you determine if a facelift fits your goals during your personal consultation.
