Facelift Q & A

What issues can a facelift address?

You might consider a facelift to reduce the appearance that aging has on your face. A facelift can:

  • Minimize the appearance of jowls that are developing in the cheeks and jaw
  • Alleviate the fold lines that develop between the nose and the corner of the mouth
  • Restore a fuller look too sunken cheeks caused by the loss of facial fat
  • Tighten loose or excess skin that causes facial sagging or a double chin

These changes can greatly improve your self-confidence and first impressions.

What should I expect during a facelift?

Dr. Yaghoubian uses minimally invasive techniques to perform facelifts.

The surgery typically begins with incisions above the sideburn and then along the front of the ear, ending behind the ear. It may extend behind the ear in more advanced facelifts.

Depending on whether you’re also having a neck lift, a second incision under the chin is sometimes necessary to address aging concerns in the neck.

Dr. Yaghoubian customizes the surgery to meet your goals, but it includes the removal of excess fat, tightening of underlying muscles, and re-draping of the skin on your face and neck.  

How long does it take to recover from a facelift?

Dr. Yaghoubian usually places a bandage around your face to minimize any swelling or bruising and may place small tubes to drain excess fluids. The team at AESTHETICA LA gives you special instructions on how to care for the incisions as they heal.

You’ll be given medications for pain and guidance as to activity level for the next few weeks.

Why do some people seem to age faster than others?

Aging happens to everyone, but accelerates due to:

  • Genetics
  • Skin thinning
  • Sun damage
  • Smoking
  • Stress

A facelift can’t stop you from aging or alter your whole overall appearance, but it can make a dramatic impact on your look, especially when combined with procedures such as brow lifts, eyelid surgery, and fat transfers.

To be a good candidate for a facelift, you must be a non-smoker and in generally good health.

If you’re considering a facelift to dramatically reduce the signs of aging, call the office or use online booking to make an appointment with Dr. Yaghoubian.
