Your Guide to Facelift Surgery

Doctors consulting with a woman about her facelift procedure A facelift is a great option to help you revitalize your appearance and help you look as young as you feel. If you’re considering this procedure, you might be curious about how it works and what to expect.

Today, facelifts have evolved from merely pulling back the skin to tighten wrinkles and sagging. Dr. Payam Daneshrad takes a more modern approach at Daneshrad Clinic in Torrance and Santa Monica, California. 

As a board-certified otolaryngologist specializing in plastic surgery, Dr. Payam Daneshrad focuses not just on the superficial skin layers but also on the underlying musculature and facial tissues. The goal is to avoid the tight, stretched look of older methods and instead provide a subtle, lifelike rejuvenation.

Facelift Consultation

You’ll begin with a consultation with Dr. Daneshrad to get a detailed analysis of your facial anatomy. This initial consultation helps us understand your unique features and aging patterns. 

With this information, we can form your customized surgical plan and decide if a traditional facelift, limited-incision, or mid-face lift is best for you. 

  • Traditional Facelift: The most comprehensive approach to facial rejuvenation (also known as a full facelift). Targets the mid-face, jawline, and neck.
  • Limited-incision Facelift: Targets the lower face and jawline with shorter incisions, offering quicker recovery and subtle enhancements. 
  • Mid-face Lift: Focuses on elevating the cheeks and reducing nasolabial folds. Ideal for patients with sagging or flatness in the cheeks but less aging in the lower face or neck.

Facelift, Step by Step

Prior to your surgery, you’ll receive either general or local anesthesia. 

Dr. Daneshrad will begin by making incisions around the hairline and ears. This is how he accesses and adjusts the deeper tissues.

Using advanced techniques, he’ll tighten and reposition your facial structures to enhance your natural contours and reduce sagging. 

He’ll then meticulously reposition the deeper layers of facial tissue, trim excess skin, and smoothly re-drape it over your face. To minimize scarring, he’ll close the incisions with fine sutures or glue.

The procedure should be completed within two to five hours. Our team of medical professionals will provide you with a tailored aftercare plan to ensure a smooth and rapid recovery. You’ll also have several follow-up appointments so we can monitor your progress.
