Discover the benefits of a vertical facelift, an advanced facial rejuvenation technique that lifts and repositions tissues for a natural, youthful appearance. Targeting sagging skin and deep folds, this procedure enhances facial contours and offers long-lasting results with minimal scarring.

What is a vertical facelift ?

A vertical facelift is an advanced facial rejuvenation technique designed to address signs of aging, such as loose skin, sagging facial tissues, and deep nasolabial folds. It differs from traditional facelifts by focusing on lifting and repositioning the facial tissues in a vertical direction rather than a horizontal pull.

This approach restores the facial structures to a more youthful position, resulting in a more natural appearance, improved facial contours, and reduced signs of aging. The vertical facelift is performed by Dr. Saman, a board-certified plastic surgeon with extensive experience in facial plastic surgery.

How is the vertical restore facelift performed?

The vertical facelift is performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon with extensive experience in facial plastic surgery. The procedure involves the following steps:

Incision placement

The facial plastic surgeon makes incisions in discreet locations, such as within the hairline or behind the ear, to minimize visible scarring.

Lifting and repositioning

The underlying structure, muscles, and connective tissue are carefully lifted and repositioned in a vertical direction, often using the deep plane facelift technique. This vertical lift provides a more natural appearance and restores facial contours.

Fat transfer or grafting (optional)

In some cases, the facial plastic surgeon may use fat transfer or fat grafting to restore volume to areas where it has been lost, further enhancing the rejuvenation process.

Closing the incisions

Once the facial tissues have been repositioned, the surgeon carefully closes the incisions, paying attention to incision placement to ensure minimal scarring.

Postoperative care

After the surgery, the patient will receive instructions for postoperative care and follow-up appointments to monitor the healing process and ensure the best possible results.

The vertical facelift technique is tailored to each individual patient's needs and goals, and the specific techniques used may vary depending on the surgeon's expertise and the patient's unique facial anatomy.

What are the benefits of vertical facelift?

The benefits of a vertical facelift include:

More youthful appearance: The vertical facelift restores facial tissues to a more youthful position, resulting in a rejuvenated and younger-looking face.

Improved facial contours: By lifting and repositioning the facial tissues in a vertical direction, this technique enhances facial contours and helps redefine the natural shape of the face.

Reduced signs of aging: The vertical facelift effectively addresses common signs of aging, such as loose skin, sagging facial tissues, and deep nasolabial folds.

More natural results: Unlike some traditional facelift techniques that may result in a windswept or unnatural appearance, the vertical facelift focuses on lifting the facial tissues vertically, providing a more balanced and natural-looking facial rejuvenation.

Customizable procedure: The vertical facelift can be tailored to each individual’s unique facial anatomy and aesthetic goals, ensuring that the results align with the patient’s desired outcome.

Potentially less scarring: By placing incisions in discreet locations, such as within the hairline or behind the ear, the vertical facelift minimizes visible scarring.

Compatibility with other procedures: The vertical facelift can be combined with other facial rejuvenation techniques, such as neck lift, eyelid lift, or fat grafting, to address additional concerns and achieve a comprehensive facial rejuvenation.

Who is a good candidate for vertical face lift?

A good candidate for a vertical face lift typically has the following characteristics:

Moderate signs of aging: Individuals with moderate signs of aging, such as loose skin, sagging facial tissues, and deep nasolabial folds, can benefit from a vertical facelift.

Realistic expectations: A good candidate understands the potential outcomes of the procedure and has realistic expectations about the results.

Good overall health: Candidates should be in good general health and free from any medical conditions that could increase the risks associated with surgery or impair the healing process.

Non-smoker: Smoking can negatively impact the healing process and increase the risk of complications. It is recommended that candidates be non-smokers or willing to quit smoking before and after the surgery.

Healthy skin elasticity: Individuals with a good degree of skin elasticity are more likely to achieve better results, as the skin can better adapt to the repositioned facial tissues.

Seeking natural rejuvenation: Candidates who desire a more natural-looking facial rejuvenation, rather than an overly tight or windswept appearance, are well-suited for a vertical facelift.

While middle-aged women with healthy skin are often good candidates for a vertical facelift, it is essential to consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon such as Dr. Saman to determine if this procedure is suitable for your specific needs and aesthetic goals. Dr. Saman will evaluate your facial anatomy, medical history, and desired outcomes to create a personalized treatment plan.

While scarring is a natural part of the healing process, a skilled plastic surgeon will make every effort to place incisions in discreet locations to minimize visible scarring. Most patients find that their scars fade over time and become less noticeable.

While non-surgical alternatives like dermal fillers, Botox, or laser skin resurfacing can provide some improvement in facial appearance, they typically cannot match the comprehensive and long-lasting results achieved with a vertical facelift. Non-surgical treatments may be more suitable for those with mild signs of aging or those who are not candidates for surgery.

A mini vertical facelift, also known as a short-scar facelift or an S-lift, is a less invasive version of the vertical facelift. This procedure targets specific areas of the face, usually the midface and lower face, to address mild to moderate signs of aging. The mini vertical facelift provides a more subtle and natural rejuvenation with a shorter recovery time compared to a full vertical facelift.

The mini vertical facelift involves smaller incisions, typically made around the hairline and within the natural creases around the ear. The surgeon then lifts and repositions the facial tissues in a vertical direction to restore a more youthful appearance. The procedure may be combined with other treatments such as fat grafting or injectable fillers to enhance the overall results.

Because the mini vertical facelift is less extensive than a full facelift, it is best suited for individuals with early signs of aging who desire a more refreshed appearance without undergoing a more invasive procedure.
