Facelift Surgery in Newport Beach, CA

Facelift in Newport Beach and Beverly Hills

A facelift can help tighten the skin on your face in order to get rid of jowls and facial wrinkles. If your wrinkles and age lines are making you look older than you really are, a facelift is an effective and long-lasting solution. This procedure makes the skin of the face taut and youthful by tightening the tissues.

Facelifts are the most common type of cosmetic surgeries. A facelift can be performed on its own or in conjunction with other cosmetic procedures like a brow lift or blepharoplasty surgery.

The Facelift Procedure

A traditional facelift can be performed in a matter of hours, and you can return home the same day. The procedure is usually performed with sedation on an outpatient basis. In some cases, general anesthesia may be used instead.

At the start of a facelift, an incision is made in front of the ear, which then extends up into the hair or hairline and over to the front of the other ear. Sometimes, it may even reach up behind the ear into the hair-bearing scalp.

Dr. Batniji then expertly lifts the skin to expose the underlying tissues. The extra skin is removed during this procedure, and the underlying tissues are tightened.

The skin is then carefully placed back over the tissues. The incisions that have been made are closed with the help of sutures. Dr. Batniji may or may not place drainage tubes in the region to drain out excessive fluid. Bandages are applied to aid in healing.

Facelift Consultation

Facelift surgery example in Beverly Hills, CA Dr. Batniji is board certified by the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery as well as the American Board of Otolaryngology. Known for being one of the best facelift surgeons in the New Port Beach and Beverly Hills areas, he limits his practice exclusively to facial plastic and reconstructive surgery. The most common surgical procedures Dr. Batniji performs include face and neck lifts. Patients travel from around the world to be treated in his state-of-the-art Beverly Hills and Newport Beach clinics, where they receive the finest facial rejuvenation care available. When he’s not employing his surgical skill directly, Dr. Batniji is a frequent lecturer sharing his wealth of experience to help educate the next generation of facial reconstruction specialists.

Enhance Your Facial Appearance

The decision to undergo Rhytidectomy (also commonly referred to as a facelift) is a big step. It should only be taken after proper consultation with a skilled surgeon such as Dr. Batniji.

Under Dr. Batniji’s expert care, you’ll learn how surgery can address changes in facial fat and the natural deterioration of rejuvenating skin agents like collagen that lead to wrinkles, sagging skin, and even jowls. Dr. Batniji will explain how by eliminating excess fat, tightening the muscles beneath, and re-draping the skin on top, he can restore a smooth, youthful appearance to your face and neck.

Providing Lasting Results

While there are non-surgical options such as dermal fillers, they do not offer the same lasting results you can achieve with a successful facelift procedure. Even among other surgical options, facelifts continue to be the most popular because of their ability to reduce the signs of aging for prolonged periods. For example, some of the best injectable fillers only last for a few months up to a few years. Facelifts, followed by proper care, can last over five to ten years. 

Facelifts can reverse the signs of aging and produce natural results leading to a youthful appearance that is incredibly vibrant. This is due to incredible advancements that make successfully performed facelifts virtually undetectable. 

The most important aspect of achieving a facelift that looks extremely natural is entrusting your treatment to a medical professional with the skills and experience to know how to address your unique needs. 

The Power of a Facelift for Men

Facelifts are not just for the advanced age or women. In fact, a growing number of men are experiencing the benefits and increased confidence that can come from a flawlessly performed facelift. Several types of facelift procedures can not only help reduce the signs of aging but also enhance some of your best features, such as the jawline or cheekbones. Regarding skincare goals for men, Dr. Batniji is considered one of the best facelift surgeons in helping men experience the best side of their skin and facial features. 

Rewinding the Aging Process

While there may not be a magic pill, facelifts offer a powerful solution in being able to reverse many signs we associate with aging by: 

  • Removing signs of a double chin or heavy jowls 
  • Smoothing wrinkles in the lower portion of the face and neck 
  • Tightening sagging skin throughout the face. 
  • Restoring volume to the face lost through aging 

Many are surprised at how much the right facelift procedure can address when it comes to signs of aging. When sitting down with Dr. Batniji during your initial consultation, you can discuss all of their concerns and goals. Based on what is shared, Dr. Batniji will be able to present you with the best option to address your concerns. This brings us to another valuable benefit. 

Synergizing Facelifts with other Procedures 

While other cosmetic procedures must be performed independently, facelifts allow patients to have additional procedures done during the same surgical window. Besides saving time and cutting down on recovery, Dr. Batniji can develop a multi-pronged approach to address your needs most effectively. During your consultation, feel free to mention any other procedures that may interest you. They may be able to be done at the same time. 

Various Facial Procedures

As one of the most practiced cosmetic procedures performed, there are different types of facelift you can consider. While there are non-surgical options, we will focus on ones that require surgical intervention. 

Mini facelift

The mini facelift is performed through a series of careful incisions beneath the hairline. From there, a surgeon is able essentially to lift, tighten and smooth out your skin and remove excess tissue. While it is not meant to address extreme signs of aging, it is a great option for mild to medium wrinkles and loose tissue. 

Deep plane/SMAS facelift

Intended to address sagging skin around the neck and chin, a deep plane facelift achieves this by tightening the lax muscles in the area. Your surgeon does this by going beneath the musculoaponeurotic system (SMAS), where the muscles used for smiling and frowning reside. 


Mid-facelifts are Designed to address the midsection of the face, especially around the cheek region. This procedure removes wrinkles and restores volume by removing excess tissue or repositioning it. 

Cheek lift

Specifically targeting the lines and wrinkles around the cheeks, it is also a great option to enhance the appearance of your cheekbones. There is also an additional benefit of reduced under-eye puffiness. 

Brow lift

Brow lifts are powerful solutions for those that have low or droopy eyebrows. With a faster recovery time compared to the much more invasive eyebrow, it’s a great option that helps eliminate wrinkles from both the temples and brows. 

Cutaneous lift

Cutaneous lifts are a procedure meant to help the lower portion of the face, including the jaw and neck. Incisions are made around the hairline and ears, excess tissue is removed, and the remaining skin is stretched and connected at the incision points. 


As the name suggests, an s-shaped incision is made around the neck and jawline so the surgeon can remove unneeded fat cells and contour the muscles and tissue underneath to produce smooth skin free of wrinkles. 

Jawline rejuvenation

An especially popular procedure among women, jawline rejuvenation tackles one of the first signs of aging that appears around the neck and jawline. Different from other procedures involving the lower face, this process can involve neck liposuction, dermal fillers, jaw Botox, Kybella, and other options to give the surgeon space to adjust the contours of the neck and jawline. 

How much does a facelift cost?

When it comes to receiving a facelift, a major consideration is related to how much a facelift costs. The good news is that it has never been more economical or affordable to undergo a facelift than now. 

Additionally, several financing options are offered to help even further. When it comes to a specific price for your procedure, the best strategy is to schedule an appointment with our office where we can present your options and the associated cost so that you can make the best decision for your needs and goals. 

A Less Invasive Solution

Cutting-edge advancements and techniques like the ones Dr. Batniji utilizes are markedly less invasive than other surgical procedures currently being offered. From its small, inconspicuous incisions to the rapid rate of recovery, it is considered by professionals and patients alike to be the treatment of choice when it comes to minimally invasive anti-aging procedures.

Facelift Recovery

The facelift-recovery process will involve a degree of post-surgical care on the part of the patient. The patient must follow Dr. Batniji’s care directions closely in order to reduce the chance of complications.

During recovery, patients will need to take time off from work so that they can rest and heal properly. They should not participate in any sports or heavy exercise routines for a time.

Swelling and bruising are normal parts of the healing process. When ice packs are used, these issues will reduce faster. Once facelift healing is complete, the patient will be able to enjoy results that make them look up to ten years younger.

Having multiple procedures: face and chin lift, upper and lower eyes, and forehead lift done at once, I was a little concerned, however I needn’t have been, I had absolutely NO pain and NO bruising! Dr. Batniji assured me that I would be quite pleased with the results and he was absolutely right! He and his staff exceeded my expectations. I would recommend ONLY Dr. Batniji to my family and friends ( and I am in the Healthcare Industry)!– Viktoria M., San Diego, CA

Facelift FAQs

The removal of excess skin is permanent, and the recontouring of the underlying muscle often lasts for 10-15 years or more. It’s important to remember, though, that you will age normally following the procedure, so try to think of the surgery as more akin to turning back a clock than stopping the clock completely.
As one of the best facelift surgeons, Dr. Batniji is quite skilled at hiding the incisions inside the hairline and in the natural creases around the ears. You can help the scars be even less noticeable by taking normal precautions like avoiding unprotected sun exposure, which can darken them. In most cases, facelift scars heal quite flat and close to skin color, so most people find them nearly invisible.

Nonsurgical methods like laser skin tightening and injectable fillers can help to rejuvenate your skin slightly if you’re only facing the initial signs of aging, but there are no noninvasive methods to contour the underlying structures and remove the extra skin that is causing sagging and looseness.
