Facelift surgery has become increasingly popular in recent years because it can turn back the clock on the signs of aging, helping you recover your youthful self. Dr. Lalezar offers the latest facelift techniques to address your specific goals and reverse the signs of aging with minimal side effects and downtime.
Recover Your Youthful Self
A primary facelift is a surgical procedure that targets the mid and lower face and neck. The procedure is typically performed through incisions along the hairline, behind the ears, and under the chin. It involves lifting and tightening the skin and underlying muscles to create a more youthful and defined appearance. A primary facelift can reverse the signs of aging, such as wrinkles, and make your skin look smoother and more youthful.
The Goals of Primary Facelift:
- Improving the overall appearance of the face and neck
- Reversing the signs of aging, such as sagging skin, wrinkles, and loss of jawline definition
- Lifting and tightening the skin and underlying muscles in the lower face
- Creating a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance
- Restoring a more defined jawline and neck
- Smoothing out wrinkles and fine lines in the lower half of the face
Your Recovery Journey
After a primary facelift, you will need to rest and recover at home. The length of the recovery will depend on the extent of your surgery and your individual healing process, but most people can return to work and other normal activities within a few weeks. During your recovery, you may experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort, which can be managed with pain medication and cold compresses. Please follow your surgeon’s instructions carefully to ensure the best possible recovery and results.
Dr. Lalezar’s Surgical Technique
Dr. Lalezar uses cutting-edge surgical techniques to perform your primary facelift. During your consultation, he carefully examines your facial skin, discusses your goals and concerns, reviews your medical history, and measures the degree of skin laxity and jowls. Depending on your condition and goals, he determines if you need a full facelift, mini facelift, lower facelift, or SMAS facelift and curates a personalized surgical plan. He discusses every step of the surgical plan with you so you know what to expect.
Your facelift surgery is performed under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with intravenous sedation at an accredited surgical facility. Dr. Lalezar makes extremely small incisions on various parts of your face, such as along the hairline, behind the ears, and under the chin, depending on the chosen facelift technique. The incisions are made along the natural creases of your face to minimize scarring. He trims away excess skin, removes excess fat cells, and tightens underlying muscles, following which the incisions are sutured.
