More to Facelifting than Meets the Eye

Facial rejuvenation refers to any number of surgical or nonsurgical procedures that help reverse unwanted signs of aging. Often patients have a preconceived notion of the overly pulled stereotype who look stuck in a wind tunnel. Others are worried about the incisions and scars of a facelift. Many are unaware of other excellent existing options.

In my philosophy, the ideal rejuvenative plan is a customized treatment plan that addresses all the underlying aging changes that one wishes to reverse, one by one. Of course at the next gala or family gathering, I’d want your friends to notice that you look amazing, rejuvenated, happy, well rested and refreshed; but never overly pulled, unnatural or “worked on.”

What is a Facelift ?

A facelift is a facial rejuvenation process where facial soft tissues and muscles are lifted around the eyes, cheeks, jowls and neck, excess skin is removed, and facial skin is draped back over the newly repositioned contours. Incisions in the hairline can be made beginning at the temples and continuing down and around the front of the ears, ending behind the ears in the lower scalp. Shorter incisions are used in mini-facelift procedures intended for younger patients in their ~40’s.

There are different ways this procedure can be done, and the approach taken by your surgeons is impacted by their philosophy and training and is based on your anatomy, degree of facial laxity, skin types and thickness, and other factors. Dr. Saman’s philosophy views facial lift as a rejuvenation procedure, emphasizing a natural appearance achieved throughout a modern, safe, and minimally invasive manner that improves your aesthetics. SamanMD offers its patients deep plane facelift and mini-facelift procedures.

You have excess facial skin around the neck and jowls?

Deep plane facelift surgery

The deep plane facelift technique involves releasing and repositioning the underlying muscle layers of the face, including the SMAS (superficial muscular aponeurotic system) and facial muscles of expression, as well as key facial retaining ligaments. This allows for the SMAS, a critical structure in facelift surgery, to be repositioned higher vertically, resulting in a rejuvenated and refreshed appearance. This vertical vector of pull is critical in achieving natural results as opposed to the older techniques where the vector of pull was backwards giving a windswept look. 

The deep plane technique also allows for the repositioning of adjacent structures such as the midface fat pads, restoring lost cheek volume and improving facial contours. This procedure can provide long-lasting results and a natural-looking outcome.

Mini facelift surgery

A limited incision facelift, also known as a mini facelift or by various brand names, is a facelift technique that aims to contour the jawline, cheeks, jowls for a more youthful appearance. It involves a smaller, inconspicuous incision around the ear and into the hairline, and may involve different techniques for addressing the underlying soft tissue and muscular layers (SMAS).

A mini facelift has a shorter recovery time compared to a traditional facelift, and is often performed under local anesthesia with a recovery period of 7-10 days. Dr. Saman will recommend the best type of mini-facelift based on your specific concerns and desired outcome.

Benefits of a facelift procedure

The progressive degradation of your skin quality can be a result of a range of processes, including the thinning of dermal tissue and the loss of facial fat. Age, gravity, sun damage, smoking, heredity, and stress may be the causes of these changes. Modern facelift operations strive to restore many symptoms of aging endured over the years by removing superfluous skin, tightening underlying tissue and muscle, and then redraping the remaining skin for a smoother and tighter appearance to the face and neck. If you find yourself battling with any of the following common indications of aging, a facelift can fix these concerns in only one surgery.

Facelift incisions are made to be almost imperceptible, so there won’t be any obvious scarring or other telltale evidence that you had a cosmetic treatment done. While the size and precise position of your incisions vary depending on the regions you want to treat and the results you want, most incisions are made behind the ear or along the hairline for simple concealment after surgery. This way, only you will know the trick to younger-looking skin.

The days of facelift outcomes that appeared clearly overdone are long gone. The focus of cosmetic surgery techniques has evolved from simply tightening the extra skin on your face to manipulating underlying tissue to provide a more natural appearance. Dr. Saman is an expert at rejuvenating facial contours and ensuring that you retain your natural appearance while appearing decades younger. With a long-lasting reputation for its amazing technique, you will not be disappointed by your rejuvenated natural look after your facelift.

Every patient has different goals and expectations as well different downtime and level surgical complexity they are willing to accept. For this reason, every case has to be customized. Whether we are going for a mini-lower facelift or a full-face deep plane rhytidectomy, Dr. Saman will ensure a plan that is right for you.

Gentle surgical technique matters. With the use of minimally invasive techniques and modern instrumentation and technologies, Dr. Saman is able to minimize downtime and discomfort for his patients. Our postoperative care routine is a cut above, ensuring outstanding results for our patients.

Why have a facelift treatment?

As we age, our facial bones resorb, our skin becomes lax and dull, our ligaments stretch, and facial fat compartments and volume distribution change. But every face is unique and, moreover, the degree to which these aging changes affect each and every face differently.

Facial features corrected by a facelift procedure

  • Sagging appearance of the cheeks
  • Excess skin at the lower jawline
  • Deep skin folds from the sides of the nose to the corner of the mouth
  • Sagging skin and excess fat in the neck (if the procedure includes a neck lift)

Why choose a facelift treatment above other treatments?

While facial fillers, neuromodulators, and other non-surgical treatments may be appealing, they often result in patient dissatisfaction and can be just as costly as a facelift. A facelift offers longer-lasting results, precise control and direct changes to the facial anatomy, and minimal scarring.

It can also be combined with other procedures to enhance the outcome. In addition to improving your appearance, a facelift can boost your self-confidence by restoring a more youthful position for facial muscles, treating loose skin and tissue, redefining your jawline, and creating a balanced and natural-looking facial appearance. Overall, Dr. Saman’s facelift provides patients with a rejuvenated look with minimal risk, taking years off your appearance.

A facelift, also known as a rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure that aims to improve the appearance of the face by tightening the skin and underlying muscle layers, and repositioning sagging or loose tissue. The goal of a facelift is to restore a more youthful, refreshed appearance to the face.

A facelift is typically recommended for individuals who are experiencing sagging or loose skin on the face, as well as loss of volume in the midface area. Good candidates for a facelift are generally in good overall health, do not smoke, and have realistic expectations for the outcome of the procedure.

There are several different types of facelifts, including traditional facelifts, mini facelifts, and deep plane facelifts. The type of facelift that is most appropriate for you will depend on your specific facial anatomy and desired outcome.

After two to four weeks of recovery, you should be mostly recovered from the operation and will have medical clearance to resume your regular daily activities. If you are in good health and strictly adhere to your aftercare instructions, your recovery period may be shortened.

As with any surgical procedure, there are potential risks and complications associated with a facelift. These may include bleeding, infection, scarring, and changes in skin sensation. Your surgeon will discuss the potential risks and complications with you in detail before the procedure.

Yes, a facelift can often be combined with other facial rejuvenation procedures, such as a brow lift, blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery), or facial fillers. Your surgeon will be able to recommend the best combination of procedures to help you achieve your desired outcome.

The results of a facelift can last for several years, although the rate at which the face ages will depend on factors such as genetics, environmental exposures, and lifestyle habits. While a facelift offers a rejuvenated look, the skin on your face will continue to age after you have a facelift, which is why the results aren’t permanent.

Some patients may choose to have maintenance treatments or touch-up procedures to maintain the results of their facelift. For most of Dr. Saman’s patients, the results of a facelift will last around 10 years.

Most patients experience some discomfort after a facelift, but this can be managed with pain medication prescribed by your surgeon. Most patients are able to return to work and normal activities within a few weeks of the procedure.

A facelift, in and of itself will not alter the shape or appearance of your eyes. Generally procedures that may result change in eye shape are related to eyelid surgery also known as blepharoplasty. It is true that swelling may cause the area around your eyes to be fuller and the skin under your eyes to have fewer wrinkles during the first few weeks of healing.

Although nonsurgical facelift options have advanced significantly in recent years, they are not able to provide the same results as a surgical facelift. A surgical facelift is still the most effective treatment for addressing significant signs of aging in the midface and lower neck. While non-surgical procedures can provide mild improvements, they are not able to achieve the same level of rejuvenation as a facelift. If you are looking to achieve more significant and long-lasting results, a facelift may be the best option for you.

Facelift surgery, also known as a face-lift or rhytidectomy, is a cosmetic surgery procedure that aims to improve the appearance of the face by tightening the skin and muscles of the face and neck. Facelift surgery can be performed using a variety of techniques, including traditional facelift, deep plane facelift, and mini facelift.

Facial plastic surgeons are medical professionals who are trained to perform facelift surgery and other cosmetic procedures on the face and neck. A facial plastic surgeon is a medical doctor who has completed specialized training in facial plastic surgery, which includes both cosmetic and reconstructive procedures. 

Facelift surgery is typically performed under general anesthesia in a surgical facility. The procedure can take several hours, depending on the technique used and the extent of work being done. After the surgery, the patient will need to rest and allow for recovery time, which can vary from a few days for a mini facelift to several weeks for a full facelift.

Facial rejuvenation can also be achieved through non-surgical methods such as dermal fillers or endoscopic brow lift.
