The Moradi Lift is our signature procedure that is built on superior surgical techniques combined with excellent patient care. The Moradi Lift is a small incision facelift combined with a fat transfer, if needed. The incisions are made strategically so that scarring is minimal and hidden along the natural creases of the ears. To achieve a long lasting and natural result, the muscle and fascia layers are lifted. The neckbands under the chin are repaired and the muscle is cut to allow lifting of the mid-neck. Fat is taken from the patient’s abdomen or sides and is transferred to the face to recreate the fullness of youth. To learn more, call Moradi MD in San Diego, CA, to schedule a consultation with Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Amir Moradi.

"Really Listens to you - Always personal and authentic. Listens to your requests (and sometimes fear). From the moment you walk into your treatment room you are greeted by Veronica who seems to quell your anxiety and when Dr. Moradi comes in, you know you are in excellent hands."- M. / RealSelf / Apr 05, 2018
"The BEST in the biz!!! - I absolutely feel like I’m aging gracefully with the help of this amazing man and his staff. Initially, I was referred to Dr. Moradi from another cosmetic MD and later referred to him by an acquaintance of mine. I respect Dr. Moradi so much for his conservative and honest approach. He consults and thoroughly evaluates your needs while discussing the options. Less is more with him. I love it w..."- K. / RealSelf / Mar 29, 2018
"I always know I'm in the best of hands (literally) when I see Dr. Moradi. My experience, and results, are spot on every single time I go in for my treatments. He is kind and always makes me feel I'm the most important patient he has. His assistant Veronica completes the perfect team to always take the time to make me feel comfortable and welcome. I know I can call her anytime with questions. I trust them both completely."- L.S. / Yelp / Mar 26, 2018
"Amazing doctor and staff A+++ - I have been going to Dr. Moradi for over a year now and I couldn’t be happier with my results. He is excellent and he will not “over-do” any procedure, he is very honest and if you don’t need it, he won’t do it, I really appreciate that. Additionally, Veronica is amazing and is always available for questions or concerns. All of the staff is great, I have gone other places in the past, but..."- B. / RealSelf / Mar 14, 2018
This procedure is usually performed with conscious sedation without general anesthesia for a faster recovery. The Moradi Lift is ideal for the patients with jowls and lower face laxity, usually in their fifties or late forties, who do not want a dramatic change and want a fast recovery. The Extended Moradi facelift is another option designed to not only take care of the lower face but also improve the excess neck skin. The Extended Moradi Lift procedure includes a fat transfer as needed, and the incisions are placed behind the ear cartilage so that they are hidden, instead of in front of the ears like in a traditional Moradi facelift.
When deciding between the many facial rejuvenation procedures offered at Moradi MD, it is important to consider what your recovery time will be for each of the procedures. The Moradi Lift generally takes 1 – 2 weeks for recovery and 1 – 2 weeks to see the optimal results.
