Deep creases appear, becoming etched into the skin around the mouth and nose, the jawline sags, jowls appear, and the neck develops wrinkles, sagging skin, or vertical bands. These natural events are rarely welcome, but with the help of a custom facelift at Moradi MD, you can appear years younger.

Facelift Patient Testimonial

What does a facelift treat?

A facelift treats the following aesthetic issues:

  • Deeply etched smile lines
  • Sagging jowls
  • Loss of jawline definition
  • Saggy upper neck
  • Double chin fat
  • Deep undereye hollows

Tired of living with the signs of facial aging?

Ideal candidates for a facelift are those who feel less confident due to facial aging and want to create a more youthful impression, subtle but significant. Facelifts are typically performed on patients between the ages of 40 and 60 but can also be successfully performed on people in their 70s and 80s who are in good general health. Every person is unique, and the techniques employed will vary. Every facelift at Moradi MD is customized to match the individual’s condition.

What is a small incision facelift?

A small incision facelift uses a two to four-inch incision in front of the ear that lifts the lower face and upper neck. The advantages of a small incision facelift are that it can be performed with local anesthesia in-office, with less risk, and at a lower cost. This custom facelift may be referred to as a “mini facelift.”

The recovery is typically quick, allowing for a return to work or other activities within a few days. A small incision facelift will involve the shortest incisions possible, through which the face and upper neck are tightened and firmed.

What is a mid-facelift? 

The mid-face is one of the regions most impacted by aging. Many symptoms of aging skin appear in the mid-face region, including deep tear troughs, sagging or hollow cheeks, deep, noticeable smile lines, and a downturned appearance at the mouth. These symptoms result from a natural loss of facial fat, declining skin elasticity, and exposure to the elements, especially UV rays. At Moradi MD, a mid-face lift is performed endoscopically, under intravenous sedation and local anesthesia rather than general anesthesia. Small incisions are made behind the hairline above the ears, and a small incision may be placed in the mouth. Next, the cheek fat pads are lifted and repositioned above the cheekbones. The recovery time after an endoscopic facelift is relatively short. You will experience some minor pain and bruising lasting from seven to ten days, after which the tissues heal and settle, leaving you ready to reveal a natural, refreshed look!

What to expect from surgery

Facelift procedures are performed in an accredited surgical facility or in-office, with general anesthesia or intravenous sedation and local anesthesia.

A facelift is typically an outpatient procedure, but some patients may require an overnight stay for monitoring. It is normal to experience bruising and swelling in the early stages of recovery and a sensation of tightness, which subsides within a few weeks. 

The beauty of the results is revealed with time and rest, although you will look incredible long before full healing is achieved, which occurs over several months. You will be provided with full aftercare instructions. These include sleeping on your back, avoiding vigorous physical activities, and taking the time to allow the body to heal itself. Dr. Moradi will be monitoring your progress and will see you several times in follow-up appointments to ensure your recovery is uneventful, and the results exceed your expectations.
