The gold standard of facial rejuvenation is still the surgical facelift. While Botox®, RF skin tightening, facial fillers and other anti-aging treatments can minimize the signs of aging, no procedure can replace the benefits of a facelift when it is performed correctly. Dr. Obaid Chaudhry (aka Dr. O.C.) at Be That Beautiful™ Plastic Surgery is a highly experienced plastic surgeon that performs facelift surgery with natural, outstanding results at our Los Angeles facility.
A facelift, or rhytidectomy, is designed to remove excess skin, elevate tissue and restore a more youthful lower face. Some of the most noticeable signs of aging occur around the mouth, jawline and upper neck. As the skin and tissue lose firmness with age, the lower cheeks and jowls drop. The jawline is less defined, and some individuals develop a double chin or turkey waddle with extra skin and fat on the upper neck. Facelift surgery can reverse these concerns, removing excess skin and tightening the lower face, jaw and upper neck.
Dr. O.C. is fellowship-trained and highly respected by his peers and patients. When performing a rhytidectomy, his goal is to retain each patient’s unique appearance while rejuvenating their lower face. His facelift techniques are subtle, but effective, in restoring a more youthful appearance without appearing artificial. The sagging jowls are tightened and lifted to reveal a jaw, chin and neck that looks 10 or more years younger.
The incisions for full facelifts are hidden in the hairline around the ear. The length of facelift incisions depend on the type of rhytidectomy performed. A full facelift for excessive sagging or extra skin requires longer incisions that typically go around the ear, while a mini facelift may have a much shorter incision. Dr. Chaudhry can perform facelifts tailored to the patient and their individual aesthetic goals, discreetly hiding the incision and scar for a natural appearance.
Facelifts for Men and Women
Everyone deserves to look their best at every age. Both men and women come to Dr. O.C. to explore their options when it comes to retaining a more youthful appearance. Facelifts can achieve beautiful results for all genders, but they are performed using different techniques. Women tend to have thinner skin and a fuller hairline, while men have thicker skin, facial hair and varying hairlines. Dr. O.C. has created exceptional results for both men and women seeking facelift surgery, even for men with challenging features.
Are You a Good Candidate for Facelift Surgery?
Once upon a time, most facelift patients were in their 50s or beyond. Today, we perform facelifts on many younger patients who desire to retain a more youthful appearance versus waiting for sagging to appear. Many men and women have their first facelift in their forties or even late thirties, usually a “mini” facelift to slightly lift the jowls and tighten the neck, jawline and lower face. If you have any sagging in the lower face or upper neck, you may be a good candidate for a rhytidectomy.
Facelift surgery can rejuvenate the lower face and neck, but it does not change the eyes or brow. Many of our patients opt to combine a brow lift or eyelid lift with their facelift to rejuvenate the face from the hairline down to below the chin.
