Welcome To A
New Beautiful You

Facelift is one of the most popular procedures to minimize signs of facial aging and produce a younger-looking appearance. It is also one of the most customizable — although the basic components of facelift are the same, every facelift is tailored to the individual needs of the patient. Loose skin and tissues are tightened, and displaced fat is repositioned to create  more youthful contours.

Facelift is often combined with neck lift to revitalize the lower face and neck simultaneously (thereby ensuring that the face and neck don’t look “out of sync” in terms of aging). Other procedures, such as fat transfer or dermal filler injections, can be incorporated into face and neck lift to replace volume that has been lost over time.

When you decide to undergo facelift and/or neck lift with Dr. Ali Roham, you can feel confident that your procedure will focus on the signs of aging that bother you the most. He will hand-pick the techniques that are guaranteed to give you the natural-looking transformation you envision.

Candidacy for Face and Neck Lift

Candidates for face and neck lift are typically men and women who take good care of themselves but are bothered by noticeable signs of facial aging. They tend to have one or more of the following concerns:

  • Deep creases and wrinkles around the nose, mouth and chin

  • Loss of volume in the middle and lower parts of the face

  • Jowls

  • Lack of definition along the jawline

  • Loose skin on the front of the neck

  • Vertical banding on the front of the neck

If you share these same concerns and want to love the way you look, facelift (with or without neck lift) may be right for you. A consultation with Dr. Roham can shed light on the best treatment approach for your needs. During your consultation, the plastic surgeon will go over your medical history to ensure you are healthy enough for elective surgery. When you decide to schedule surgery, Dr. Roham will provide comprehensive instructions for preparing for the procedure.

Treatment Details

As mentioned, every facelift is slightly different according to the unique needs of the patient, but all facelifts are performed on an outpatient basis with anesthesia.

Dr. Roham creates incisions at the temples, extending along the hairline and down and around the ears. An additional incision under the chin may be needed as well. Through the incisions, Dr. Roham removes extra skin, tightens the underlying tissues and sculpts fat to create more attractive facial contours and greater definition.

Neck lift incisions are made around the ears and along the lower scalp. Another incision underneath the chin may be made. Through the incision, Dr. Roham removes excess fat from the front of the neck and tightens the underlying structures of the neck. He trims excess skin and re-drapes the remaining skin more smoothly over the neck.

After face/neck lift, special garments may be placed around the head and neck to support the healing tissues.

Recovering From Facelift/Neck Lift

One of the most important guidelines for patients following facelift/neck lift is to keep the head elevated at all times (even while sleeping). This helps to keep swelling controlled. Applying cold compresses to the face and neck and taking oral pain medication are also recommended.

After your face/neck lift, Dr. Roham will provide you with all of the information you need to safely recover. He is always available to answer any questions you have. Most of his patients are able to resume work within a week or two, and exercise after approximately four to six weeks.
