Facial Surgical Procedures
Face Lift Surgery
As one ages, the skin loses its elasticity and other elements that were once present during youth. The fat atrophies, and with gravity it descends and separates off of the skeleton. The ligaments get loose and new skin folds appear in the forehead, cheeks, around the eyes and lips and the jawline. Facelift uses inconspicuous incisions around the ears and the hairline to access the fascia and muscles of the face and allow a natural lift of these tissues. The excess skin is then gently pulled back and removed along the incision lines to restore more youthful features and expression in a natural fashion. Fat grafting is performed to volumeize the atrophied fat pockets.
Other cosmetic surgeries supplement Dr. Paydar’s facelift procedure to reverse the effects of aging on the eyes, neck, chin, and other facial features. Most patients opt for supplementary procedures listed below to achieve total facial rejuvenation:
This procedure corrects drooping eyelids by removing excess skin and fat to get rid of wrinkles and eyebags to reveal a brighter and an energetic and youthful facial appearance.
Brow Lift Surgery
Eyebrows tend to drop with age making you look old and grumpy. This procedure lifts the skin and tissues around the eyebrow area to restore your youthful facial expressions.
Neck Lift Surgery
The neck is notoriously known for revealing old age. Neck lift surgery restores your youthful appearance. It works well with facelift surgery to give a more balanced and harmonious appearance.
Benefits of Facelift Surgery
Facelift procedures restore your facial contours and volume to their more youthful state, enhancing your facial features. Areas targeted are around your jawline and cheekbones.
Additionally, it promotes a natural youthful glow. Cosmetic facelift surgery is not aimed to alter the shape of your face. Rather, it removes sagging skin and repositions fat compartments to enhance your facial features and bring out your beauty and youthfulness.
When Should You Consider a Facelift Procedure?
Here are common symptoms of premature skin aging and signs to consider getting a facelift from Dr. Paydar, a renowned plastic surgeon in Newport Beach, California:
Wrinkles and Fine Lines: This is the most common symptom of aging skin. Wrinkles and fine lines affect the cheekbones, around the eyes and lips and jawlines.
Sagging Skin: Saggy skin and fat disrupting your jawline are symptoms of an aging face.
Loss of Facial Volume: Loss of volume around your face occurs due to fat pocket deflation and sagging. The facelift procedure will reposition the fat to bring back the volume especially when fat graft is added to the facelift.
Factors that Contribute to Facial Aging
Aging is a gradual natural process of change that occurs in our bodies and is inevitable. Some people look older than their age, others look younger, while another fraction looks exactly their age. How you care for yourself and your skin greatly determines your facial appearance. These are some factors that contribute to premature facial aging:
- Smoking: Smoking slows blood flow and lowers collagen levels restricting the supply of nutrients to your skin. Malnutrition skin is prone to aging and wrinkling.
- Sun Exposure: Long exposure to ultraviolet light from the sun destroys the skin cells resulting in sunspots, dead skin, and even skin cancer in extreme conditions.
- Dehydration: Water plays a crucial role in hydrating your skin. Lack of proper hydration leads to various skin conditions such as eczema, dermatitis, and psoriasis.
- Excessive Alcohol Intake: Alcohol dehydrates your skin, causing various skin conditions related to dry skin.
- Poor Diet: The skin massively benefits from vitamins extracted from various foods and fruits. The sugars and chemicals derived from processed foods lead to premature skin aging.
- Chronic Stress: Excess stress affects the body and its immune system negatively, allowing bacteria and other harmful microbes to attack skin cells.
- Sleep Deprivation: Lack of sufficient sleep leaves your skin looking tired and old.
