A facelift (or rhytidectomy) is a surgical procedure developed to help women and men achieve a younger appearance.

As we age, our facial volume decreases and our skin loses its elasticity causing the skin to sag. The aging process can leave your face looking tired and worn out, with deep wrinkles, hollow cheeks, hanging jowls, and loose skin in the lower face and neck. During the procedure, Dr. Moosavi will remove excess and re-drape the skin, tighten the muscle, and soft tissue of the face to give it a more favorable, youthful appearance. However, there are many phases to a face lift and additional procedures may be needed to enhance the final overall result depending on the patient’s specific needs.

Additional procedures include brow lift, neck lift, and methods to improve the appearance of the facial area that is most looked at to estimate age, the eyes, nose, and lower forehead. A facelift generally has results that help you look 10 or more years younger. Dr. Moosavi will base the full procedural plan on your individual areas of concern and desired results.
