Rhytidectomy (Facelift)

Excellence in Facial Rejuvenation

Facelift in Newport Beach, CA

Plastic surgery in Newport Beach, much like all around the country, is a topic that is both exciting and nerve-wracking for men and women considering plastic surgery. Let’s face it, with so many options, celebrity reports, trends, and information out there, along with the wrinkles, lines, and sagging skin we see in the mirror every day, it is an intriguing concept to turn back time. Newport Beach facial plastic surgery patients ask all the time why they should consider facelift surgery instead of facial fillers.

Facial fillers can last anywhere from three months to two years, but the results from facial plastic surgery can last more than ten years. Where facial fillers target wrinkles and sunken areas, a facelift can restore the lower two-thirds of the face and neck. Facial plastic surgery also removes excess skin, repositions underlying tissues of the face, and tightens muscles. All of these benefits are not possible with injections.

Facial plastic surgery patients should be aware that this is a major surgery and has a significant recovery period. Consultation with a Triple Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Ali Sajjadian is a must to determine the balance that is right for you when weighing risks vs. rewards.

Am I a Candidate for Facelift?

Keep in mind that age is not a limitation. The signs of aging can be different for everyone and they may appear sooner than they do on others. Facial plastic surgery procedures are designed to target the signs of aging and make them less noticeable. The average age for a facelift tends to be 50 years of age, but this is only an average. In fact, men and women as young as 40, and at times older than 80, opt to undergo facial plastic surgery.

Facelift – What to Expect

While injectable fillers provide a temporary lift and correct the minor signs of aging like unwanted wrinkles and lines, an Orange County Facelift offers a long-term solution that delivers amazing results. As with any procedure, it is important to have a skilled and qualified plastic surgeon to perform this operation to prevent a “pulled” or surgically altered appearance.

In many cases, Dr. Sajjadian may recommend a less invasive procedure to promote fast recovery and less pain and bruising. With endoscopic facelifts, short-scar facelifts, and mini facelifts, patients in need of less correction can lessen the lengthy recovery and discomfort following a traditional Orange County Facelift, with great results. These procedures are also designed to minimize the incisions necessary to perform the procedure, by concealing them in the hairline, making potential scarring less visible.

Dr. Sajjadian may recommend combining an Orange County Facelift with other cosmetic surgeries. Procedures might include liposuction or facial implants to improve the overall contour of the face. Discuss your desired outcome with Dr. Sajjadian, and he will design a personalized plan for your procedure, and will inform you of any additional procedures that may be necessary to deliver on your expectations.

Non-Surgical Stem Cell Facelifts in Orange County

Non-Surgical Stem Cell Facelift provides an alternative to the traditional facelift, offering a short procedure and short recovery time in comparison. The procedure is typically done in just an hour and recovery time is shortened to weeks instead of months. A stem cell facelift will deliver a youthful, firm, and rejuvenated result.

The non-surgical stem cell facelift is done by harvesting fat cells from the lower abdomen area. The cells are then injected into the face to smooth out wrinkles and lines, while improving the overall look of the face. Fat cells are inherently loaded with stem cells and once injected, will quickly become facial fat cells. These renewed cells will then work to naturally regenerate your face, and erase any unwanted wrinkles or lines.

Dr. Sajjadian performed extensive research in fat cell biology and has presented keynote lectures on fat technology and stem cells at science and medical conventions world-wide. Previous patients have been absolutely delighted with their revitalized, more youthful appearance.
