Top 5 Facial Procedures in Newport Beach

Woman with eyes closed - Facial rejuvination

With our beautiful weather in Southern California, most people enjoy spending time outdoors. Comfortable temperatures and low humidity make for comfortable outings at the beach, on walking trails, or in a boat exploring the open sea. 

But with so much time outside, your skin is vulnerable to the elements. Given time, sun, wind, and other factors like pollution can wreak havoc on your skin health and beauty. To counter these environmental effects, it makes sense to have a plan. 

As one of the top plastic surgeons in America, double board-certified Dr. Ali Sajjadian understands each patient has different needs and facial anatomy. That’s why he customizes each approach for cosmetic improvement to the person’s unique goals, lifestyle, and need. 

Facial aging is a complex process involving the repositioning of facial tissues that allows the face to sag.  When facial fat and tissues fall, the skin sags and stretches, causing a noticeable aging effect. That’s when you need a plan engineered by an aesthetic professional like Dr. Sajjadian. 

To help, we’ve listed five of the top facial rejuvenation procedures for Orange County and Newport Beach residents. 

1. Facelift

facelift offers a long-term solution that delivers impressive results. As with any procedure, it is crucial to have a skilled and qualified plastic surgeon perform this operation to avoid an unnatural, “worked-on” appearance.

Dr. Sajjadian may recommend less invasive procedures to promote minimal discomfort and a quicker recovery. With mini-facelifts, short-scar facelifts, and endoscopic facelifts, patients needing less correction can reduce recovery while still getting excellent results. These operations can minimize incision length and make them less visible by concealing them within the hairline, making any resulting scarring discreet.

Dr. Sajjadian may suggest combing your facelift with other facial enhancements like facial implants or liposuction. He will discuss your goals with an in-depth consultation to devise your personalized facial rejuvenation plan. 

2. Brow Lift

Dr. Sajjadian performs various advanced brow lift procedures, including an endoscopic brow lift incorporating state-of-the-art technologies to minimize potential scarring. During the operation, he creates micro-incisions in the hairline to insert an endoscopic instrument for clear visualization of the brow and forehead area. He removes excess fat, skin, and tissues on target areas to deliver an overall smoother, tauter appearance with fewer wrinkles, creases,  and fine lines.  

3. Eyelid Surgery

Loose skin around the eyes can cause a tired and worn-out expression, adding years to your appearance. Even if you maintain a diligent skin care routine, some conditions are inevitable, like persistent undereye circles or drooping lids. Blepharoplasty is a cosmetic surgery that lifts the eyelid skin and repositions tissue to enhance a youthful facial presence.  

As one of the thinnest-skinned areas on the body, the eyelid is sensitive to surgical alterations. It is why patients who need eyelid surgery need the services of a highly skilled plastic surgeon with extensive experience in performing blepharoplasty. 

Eyelid surgery is an exact cosmetic procedure that removes excess fat, skin, and muscle from the lower and upper eyelids. Patients with prominent drooping eyelids, wrinkles, and excess skin travel long distances to Newport Beach for Dr. Sajjadian’s outstanding expertise and care.

4. Neck Lift

The neck is one of the first parts of the body to show signs of aging. As skin loses elasticity, many patients experience weakened neck muscles or loose skin, producing a double chin. When a patient loses a significant amount of weight, sagging skin may ensue, leaving the appearance of what many call a turkey wattle.  

The neck lift is an advanced cosmetic surgery procedure designed to remove excess skin and fat from the neck area to improve weakened tissue structure. It helps patients achieve a more rested and younger appearance with quick recovery. 

Dr. Sajjadian performs a neck lift as a stand-alone procedure or with other facial enhancements for optimal results. Depending on your needs, he may recommend a neck lift with rhinoplasty or additional procedures to deliver the best possible aesthetic outcome. 

5. Lip Enhancement

As one of the more sensual parts of the body, plump, full lips are more appealing. Women, young and old, seek smooth lips often featured in fashion magazines. 

The keyhole pout and Cupid’s bow made famous by celebrities like Taylor Swift and Angelina Jolie are youthful attributes. But because lips tend to lose shape and volume with age, they become thin and undefined, providing a new source of wrinkles and fine lines.

Dr. Sajjadian’s goal with lip enhancement is to deliver natural-looking full, soft, and well-proportioned lips. He will discuss the possibilities with you during a private consultation to help you decide if lip enhancement can achieve the sensual look you are after, or if an alternative procedure will be better for you.

Dr. Sajjadian offers advanced brow lift procedures, including an endoscopic browlift. This approach utilizes minimal incisions and state-of-the-art technology to avoid apparent scarring.
Several micro-incisions are placed in the hairline, and then an endoscopic instrument is inserted to facilitate visualization of the forehead and brow region.
Dr. Sajjadian then removes any fat, muscle, or skin necessary to tighten the area and refresh the patient’s forehead.
People who see a loss of elasticity and lowered eyebrows are often good candidates for an endoscopic browlift.

Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery)

Even with excellent daily care of the delicate eye area, the signs of age catch up with everyone. When faced with persistent under-eye circles and drooping eyelids, men and women can undergo a blepharoplasty procedure to remove the excess.
Depending on your specific features and your desired look, Dr. Sajjadian may remove or reposition fat, muscle, and skin on the upper, lower, or both eyelids. The result is a rested, awake, and often younger appearance for the eye area.

Fat Transfer (Fat Grafting) and Facial Implants

Many people consider cheek or chin implants to balance their facial proportions and replace youthful fullness. The combination of facelift and volume restoration can be incredibly impactful.
In cases of facial wasting, injectable facial fillers and cheek implants are combined for overall softer, smooth, and contoured features.

Neck Lift

A neck lift is often done with a facelift, but it is technically a separate procedure. Your surgeon can remove skin and fat in the neck through well-hidden incisions while tightening lax platysmal muscles. It is said that a neck can give away a person’s age. Removing neckbands, double chin, or “turkey” skin can dramatically improve the overall facelift result.

Other Facial Cosmetic Options to Consider Along with A Facelift:

  • Microdermabrasion
  • Lip Enhancement
  • Otoplasty (Ear Reshaping)

Don’t be fooled! 5 Common Myths about Facelifts

Of all the plastic surgery procedures out there, few carry as many myths, misconceptions, and straight-up confusion as the facelift. Over the years, though, this procedure has become one of the most precise, refined, safe, and efficient means of providing long-lasting, subtle anti-aging.

With so much gossip surrounding this hugely popular procedure, it’s no surprise that Dr. Sajjadian sees patients all the time who come with false ideas of exactly what a facelift is and what it can do for them. We’re here to help clear things up and break down 5 of the most common myths about this cutting-edge procedure that over 100,000 Americans benefit from every year.

1. Only Older People Can Benefit from Facelifts

Not only is this myth wholly untrue, but it also stops countless possible-patients from achieving the results they want. Facelifts, while incredibly effective for older patients, work wonders for younger people as well.

Thanks to the modern facelift’s long-lasting and subtle results, patients who seek out this procedure earlier on in life often see the highest degree of benefits and satisfaction. Taking a preventative approach to anti-aging is never a bad idea, especially if you’re more genetically prone to collagen break-down or sagging skin.

Another significant benefit of receiving a facelift earlier on in life? Considerably shorter recovery periods.

2. Facelifts “Freeze” Facial Expressions

Perhaps the most notorious facelift myth is the “frozen” face. Tabloids, TV, and movies have all poked fun at celebrities whose facelifts have gone wrong. However, in just the last two decades, facelifts have seen a renaissance of both surgical techniques and technologies.

Today, Dr. Sajjadian can craft beautiful, natural-looking results that he’ll precisely design to complement your facial anatomy. By taking a holistic approach, Dr. Sajjadian generally uses a combination of surgical techniques to address both the deep causes of facial aging along with surface issues like skin laxity. His results are both comprehensive and long-lasting.

3. Facelift Recovery Will Be Arduous and Lengthy

Facelifts, just like any surgical procedure, do necessitate a recovery period. Your body will need time to adjust, and there most likely will be some minor swelling and bruising. That said, recovery is often far less painful and quicker than patients imagine. You won’t be bandaged for months on end, as some patients seem to think.

Rather, in just one to two weeks, you’ll see significant improvements to any discomfort and be able to return to your normal routine. We will also provide a prescription of pain medication to ensure your comfort throughout the early healing process.

4. “A Facelift Will Only Tighten My Skin”

Each of our patient’s facelifts is unique. There is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all approach to this delicate and intricate procedure. While Dr. Sajjadian may employ some tightening of the skin, a facelift goes far deeper to provide anti-aging results that last for years.

During your consultation, Dr. Sajjadian will work with you to pinpoint what concerns you want to address, and what technique(s) will best achieve these goals. For patients looking to see a complete transformation, we can combine your facelift with a brow lift, blepharoplasty (eyelid lift), or a neck lift. In tandem, these procedures can create holistic results that you’ll love.

5. Facelifts are Only for Women

Everyone ages, so we can all benefit from the increased confidence a facelift provides. No matter your gender, your face will change over time. Aging is a complex equation with countless factors at play, including your genetic predispositions and lifestyle choices.

Facelifts can help reverse these visible signs of aging and make you feel like your best self again. Whether you’re reentering the dating world, climbing the corporate ladder, enjoying a much-deserved retirement, or fall somewhere in-between––a facelift can help you put your best foot forward wherever you find yourself.

Our expert team is here to help you determine a treatment plan you feel entirely confident about. Dr. Sajjadian is a board-certified plastic surgeon with extensive knowledge of facial anatomy and experience working with patients of all ages and genders.
