How Can Plastic Surgery Rejuvenate Your Facial Appearance?

Is there anything more attractive than high cheekbones and a harmonious balance of facial features? Check out any fashion magazine or website and appreciate the beauty of the men and women displayed on the pages. These youthful contours have been the standard of desirability for as long as most of us can remember. But as we age, our mid-face tends to flatten and lose shape. In addition, this reduction in cheek volume accentuates sagging skin, resulting in an aged appearance.

The artistic addition of precise volume to your face can restore, recontour, and subtly fill these voids, rejuvenating without a noticeably “worked-on” look. Triple board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ali Sajjadian can help his patients rejuvenate their facial appearance with surgical intervention or minimally invasive treatments.

Facial Plastic Surgery

Facial plastic surgery offers dramatic, long-lasting outcomes, leaving no trace of the work done. Dr. Sajjadian employs multiple surgical rejuvenation enhancements designed to bring more proportion to your appearance

Cheek and Chin Implants

Facial bone structure plays an essential role in someone’s overall beauty. Therefore, patients who feel they have a weak jawline or disproportionate facial features can benefit from these specifically designed implants. Cheek and chin implants remain highly sought-after solutions because they successfully enhance facial contours by emphasizing cheekbones and defining the jawline.

Cheek and chin implants entail positioning a synthetic implant over the natural cheekbone. Women and men often seek this operation to resolve mid-face flatness. And a chin augmentation is a popular procedure to combine with rhinoplasty or a facelift for comprehensive facial refinement.

Dr. Sajjadian uses cheek and chin implants to address the following concerns.

  • Cheekbones: Make them more pronounced and pleasing.
  • Hollow cheeks: This issue may be congenital, resulting from the natural aging process or disease.

Dr. Sajjadian uses only the most advanced implant devices to deliver optimal results. He understands that facial appearance is critical in defining a person’s identity and incorporates the most sophisticated, FDA-approved materials and technologies to ensure the highest quality. As a result, these implants have a natural, anatomically correct contour and will integrate well into most faces.

The procedure is straightforward, starting with a small incision under the lower eyelid or beside the upper lip. Next, Dr. Sajjadian creates a small pocket to insert the implant into the cheek. The facial implants significantly improve cheek fullness for patients who struggle with a sunken, gaunt appearance. In addition, Dr. Sajjadian regularly recommends chin implants to rhinoplasty patients to balance and bring symmetry to facial proportions.


A surgical facelift will reposition and tighten underlying tissue to youthful contours and remove any excess skin. The results are subtle but astounding, shaving as much as 10 years off your facial appearance. In addition, it addresses drooping cheeks, neck, and jawline with discreetly hidden incisions. As an experienced facelift surgeon, Dr. Sajjadian works to bring a natural, younger appearance to the mid-face by gently repositioning submental tissue and fat and redraping the remaining skin.

A facelift makes age only a number by targeting the adverse effects of aging. It addresses flaws like wrinkles, lines, and folds, softening them and making them less noticeable. The long-lasting results appeal to most patients, lasting a decade or more.

Dr. Sajjadian has the knowledge and surgical skill each patient needs to achieve their ideal appearance. With various surgical and non-surgical offerings, he can help you find the right combination of treatments to meet your unique goals.

A facelift addresses common facial aging signs, including:

  • Creases in the middle and lower face
  • Definition loss in the lower face, including appearance of a double chin and jowls
  • Excess facial skin and fat
  • Softening facial contours
  • Shifted or displaced facial fat
  • Facial muscle tone loss

Fat Grafting

Fat transfer or fat grafting is a minimally invasive plastic surgery procedure that uses the patient’s body fat from a predetermined site to restore facial volume. This technique can correct sunken cheeks and hollow-looking eyes, smooth deep folds, resolve fine lines, and plump thin lips. It can also improve the appearance of pitted scars.

In performing a fat transfer, Dr. Sajjadian can restore lost volume to the cheek area by extracting natural tissue from donor area like the abdomen or thighs and carefully injecting it into specific areas of your face. The process is safe and effective and causes no risk from an allergic reaction.

Under a skilled surgeon’s supervision, a fat graft can produce long-lasting, natural-looking, and beautiful outcomes.

Non-Surgical Facial Treatments

Non-surgical treatments from Dr. Sajjadian’s Medspa offer similar results as surgical intervention without extensive recovery. They effectively deliver outstanding benefits for anyone who is not ready for anesthesia, sutures, or prolonged downtime.

Profound RF

Profound RF is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation treatment effective for the body and face. It delivers radiofrequency energy with microneedling to tighten sagging skin and reduce wrinkles and other effects of aging by bolstering the body’s natural production of elastin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid, the building blocks that keep skin pliable and firm.

The treatment is popular around the cheeks and mouth, neck, and jawline to treat jowls. It also serves well on the body to soften stretch marks and scars, firm sagging skin, and reduce cellulite.

The temperature-controlled Profound device employs microneedles to deliver RF energy directly into the skin’s lower layer, where most collagen fibers reside. The RF microneedling gives Dr. Sajjadian real-time feedback on its energy level and the precise temperature of the treated tissue. This makes it easier to control wound levels and stimulates a healing reaction that renovates skin textures.

This non-surgical treatment can rejuvenate the cheeks by stimulating collagen production and the body’s natural capacity to smooth wrinkles and firm skin in the target area. In addition, profound RF effectively resolves emerging aging signs, much like the benefits of facelift surgery.

Fine lines and wrinkles are the most common concerns for patients considering plastic surgery. Various procedures are available to effectively resolve these emerging signs of age and weight fluctuations, like post-bariatric body contouring, a brow lift, liposuction, eyelid lift, or facelift.

The positive benefits from these surgeries are well-documented. However, many patients shy away from surgery due to the potential risks and downtime associated with each procedure. Fortunately, Profound RF offers an alternative option with significant improvements in reducing wrinkles, fine lines, wrinkles, and cellulite – Profound microneedling with radiofrequency.

IPL Photofacial

Patients requiring an effective treatment for hyperpigmentation, rosacea, and poor skin texture have the option of an IPL photofacial. This advanced skin rejuvenation procedure incorporates state-of-the-art technology to improve skin conditions.

Intense pulsed light provides an advanced non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatment employing sophisticated technology to penetrate deep below the skin surface. It triggers blood vessels to constrict and encourages collagen production to create younger-looking skin.

Dr. Sajjadian is one of the few Newport Beach plastic surgeons to provide IPL photofacials. He has helped hundreds of patients throughout the Orange County communities.

Dermal Fillers

Dr. Sajjadian offers non-surgical dermal fillers for quick, convenient lunchtime treatments to offset lost cheek volume.

Juvéderm® is a hyaluronic acid gel that can work wonders in the cheek area. This family of products is ideal for mid-face augmentation, replacing volume loss, and rejuvenating the skin without needing anesthesia, incisions, sutures, or downtime.

Radiesse® acts as a platform to promote the formation of new tissue beneath hollow cheeks. In addition, it supports surrounding tissues through fibroblastic ingrowth. The injectable is available with lidocaine, which helps relieve any discomfort with the injections.

Restylane® is an excellent option to improve cheek contour and fullness with natural-looking results. The anti-aging resolution often addresses volume loss to restore youthful appearances. When you add contouring in your cheek area, it can create a drastic structural change.

Sculptra® is a poly-L-lactic dermal filler that stimulates collagen regeneration, ideal for facial enhancements. Nothing is more critical to adding youthful volume than the collagen protein, which supports structure and skin cells.
