Lift Away Unwanted Signs of Aging

Natural-Looking Facelifts in Orange County, CA

Skin naturally loses elasticity over time due to the effects of gravity and reduced levels of elastin and collagen. This results in sagging skin and wrinkles that drag down the face. It makes patients look older, more tired, and more grumpy. Sagging skin can also cause other unsightly cosmetic concerns like marionette lines and jowls. 

A facelift is a surgical procedure that focuses on the bottom two-thirds of the face in order to address the areas where the signs of aging are the most severe. Every facelift procedure is customized to the patient in order to reverse signs of aging and make them look decades younger. The surgical team at Qazi Cosmetic Clinic specializes in natural-looking facelifts that lift years off the face.

What is a Facelift?

A facelift, also known as rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure designed to address visible signs of aging on the face and neck. It targets sagging skin, deep creases, jowls, and loose facial muscles to restore a smoother, firmer, and more youthful appearance. By lifting and tightening the underlying tissues, a facelift can provide long-lasting results and a natural-looking transformation.

Types of Facelift

  • Traditional Facelift: This comprehensive facelift technique addresses moderate to severe signs of aging on the face and neck. It involves incisions made along the hairline, extending around the ear and possibly into the scalp. Through these incisions, the underlying tissues are lifted, excess skin is removed, and the remaining skin is tightened for a rejuvenated look.
  • Mini Facelift: The mini facelift is a less invasive procedure suitable for individuals with mild to moderate facial aging concerns. It involves smaller incisions and focuses on targeted areas such as the lower face and jawline. The mini facelift offers natural results with a shorter recovery period.

  • Tissue Repositioning and Tightening: The underlying facial muscles are gently lifted and tightened, excess fat may be removed or repositioned, and the skin is carefully re-draped for a smoother and firmer appearance.
  • Incision Closure: Our skilled surgeons meticulously close the incisions using sutures or surgical staples to promote optimal healing and minimize scarring.

Facelifts – Frequently Asked Questions

There is no single best age at which to get a facelift. Everyone’s face reflects their age differently and at different rates. Facelifts can be performed on patients in their 40s, 50s, and 60s in order to reverse facial sagging. For patients who get a facelift in their 40s or 50s, they usually require a second “refresher” facelift in their 60s to maintain their results.

Schedule a consultation at Qazi Cosmetic Clinic! Factors like  age, overall health, cosmetic concerns, goals, and lifestyle are used to determine who is a good candidate for a facelift.

Yes! The facelift only focuses on the bottom half of the face, so patients who want a complete facial rejuvenation can combine it with other anti-aging procedures. It is common to get a facelift in conjunction with a brow lift, neck lift, or eyelid surgery.

The surgical team may require patients  to undergo blood work or a physical examination to ensure that they are adequately healthy for the surgery. Patients will also need to stop taking certain medications, such as blood thinners, and abstain from smoking and alcohol for several weeks before the procedure.

During a facelift, the surgical team tightens the skin to reverse sagging and erase wrinkles. Every procedure is unique because different patients have different goals and needs.

A facelift can last 10 to 15 years depending on the method used and the patient’s lifestyle. While surgical facelifts are much more long-lasting than other non-invasive anti-aging procedures, it is usually necessary for patients to have a refresher facelift later in life.

After a facelift, some swelling, bruising, and general discomfort is normal. Patients can expect to take 2 weeks off to heal properly. After 4 weeks, it is safe to return to exercise and strenuous activities. It can take up to 6 months for the face to heal completely and for the final results to be visible.

The surgical team always uses the most advanced procedures to minimize the appearance of scars. Any incisions are hidden behind the ears and in the hairline, so they will not be noticeable. Most facelift patients at Qazi Cosmetic Clinic report that their results looked natural and that their scars were never noticed by others. 

Most people under 40 are too young for a facelift; however, everyone is unique and certain conditions and lifestyles can cause premature aging in the face. The best way to determine if you are too young for a facelift is to schedule a consultation at Qazi Cosmetic Clinic.

Risks and side effects can include: a negative reaction to anesthesia, excessive bleeding, cardiac events, blood clots, potential infection, scarring, prolonged swelling, hair loss near the incisions, and problems with wound healing.

The best way to ensure the results of a facelift is to take good care of the skin and follow all post-op instructions. Dr. Qazi and his team recommends moisturizing daily, protecting your skin from the sun with sunscreen or a hat, maintaining a healthy lifestyle, and not smoking. In some cases, patients do not get their desired results from one surgery alone, and may require a second surgery to meet their aesthetic goals.

The extent of the scarring after an arm lift will depend on the surgical techniques used and how much extra skin is removed. Advanced surgical techniques can be utilized to hide and minimize scarring. Every patient is unique, so patients must talk to Dr. Qazi and the surgical team to discuss how visible scarring can be minimized.
