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.

Enhance Your Facial Appearance

The decision to undergo Rhytidectomy (also commonly referred to as a face lift) 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.

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)!

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 a top facelift specialist, 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.

Dr. Batniji is affiliated with several accredited surgery centers and hospitals throughout Southern California, but most of his surgeries are performed at either the Newport Beach Surgery Center or the Hoag Memorial Presbyterian Hospital.

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.
