Personal Attention & Specialized Care

Facelift (aka rhytidectomy) is a popular cosmetic surgery aimed at reversing signs of aging on the face. The surgery involves removing loose skin and tightening the facial and neck muscles. As a skilled plastic surgeon, Dr. Mooner Jaibaji has achieved amazing transformations with facelift surgery for his patients in Coronado, creating results that reveal a more youthful, healthy and rested appearance.

Benefits of Facelift

Good candidates for facelift are people in good health who are displeased with signs of aging on their face. A facelift can improve:

  • Deep and superficial lines and wrinkles
  • Sagging facial features
  • Jowls (loose skin that hangs just beneath the jawline)
  • Fat and hanging skin on the neck

A facelift can create smooth, attractive contours on the face and neck. Furthermore, tightening the muscles of the face creates more definition. A double chin and loose skin (including a “turkey wattle”) can be minimized.

Types of Facelift

There are different types of facelift procedures. Selecting the appropriate procedure depends on the amount of skin laxity, amount of excess fat, presence of neck bands (static or dynamic) and brow level. In general, these are the types of facelift:

  • Skin-only facelift
  • SMAS procedure facelift. This can be divided into SMASectomy and SMAS plication. There are different modifications of SMAS plication.
  • Deep plane facelift
  • Composite facelift
  • Mini or short-scar facelift
  • MACS lift
  • Lasers and facelift

All these procedures can be combined with neck lift, liposuction of the neck, and eyelid and brow lift surgery,

Mini facelift is one of the most popular types of facelift, especially among patients in their late 30s and 40s who want to sharpen their jawline where jowls have started to form.

During a consultation. Dr. Jaibaji will evaluate the patient’s concerns, hopes and desires. He will then examine the face and neck in detail to determine the appropriate procedure. Dr. Jaibaji will also discuss the operative procedure and the recovery process. The discussion will also include addressing the risks of the procedure.

Facelift Surgery Details

Dr. Jaibaji administers general anesthetic or IV sedation to ensure the patient is comfortable throughout the surgery. He then makes an incision around the ears, which can extend to the hairline. Through the incisions, he repositions the tissue and muscles while removing excess fat and tissue.

Deep tissues are lifted and held in place with internal sutures. Then the skin is tightened to smooth out the wrinkles. Excess skin is excised while the remaining taut skin is sutured. Dr. Jaibaji applies bandages to the treatment area to accelerate healing, and he may use tubes to help drain fluids from the incision points.

What is Facelift Recovery Like?

Patients can expect to experience bruising and swelling, which should resolve in a few weeks. Keeping the head elevated and applying ice packs can accelerate this process. Discomfort may linger for a few days but can be managed with prescription medication. Dr. Jaibaji’s facelift patients typically feel (and look) well enough to return to work after a week or two, but strenuous exercise should be postponed for at least a month and a half.

Complementary Procedures

Cosmetic Facelift San Diego, CAAdding micro-fat and nano- to the face during facelift surgery can improve a loss of volume in the face. Fat is used to fill the cheeks, nasolabial folds, also called laugh lines, the lips, temple area and sometimes along the jaw line. Facelift focuses on the lower half of the face, with most procedures including elements of neck lift. Patients who would like to rejuvenate the top of the face more uniformly may consider combining facelift with blepharoplasty or brow lift. Patients should discuss these options during a consultation with Dr. Jaibaji to determine if they are good candidates for combining surgeries.

How Much Do Facelifts Cost?

The price of this surgery depends on the type of facelift chosen and the extent of aging that needs to be addressed with facelift. Because facelift is an elective procedure, it is not covered by most insurance plans. The total price of the surgery includes the cost for the facility and anesthesia. Patients who would prefer to pay for facelift in installments can seek financing through CareCredit.

How to Avoid an “Overly Done Face”

In this era, there is constant outside pressure to maintain beauty. One of the common problems that Dr. Jaibaji sees in his practice is the overly done face. This can be a consequence of undergoing too many procedures or excessive use of filler without regard to facial harmony. We believe the outcomes in face lifts depends on how the surgeon identifies the problem and the technique used to treat it.

Dr. Jaibaji explains to his patients that a natural-looking, youthful face is the goal. He advises his patients against a procedure that would give them an unnatural look.

People hear about new procedures and new techniques on a daily basis. Hype and price-cutting marketing techniques do have an impact on patients’ emotions. New techniques in general do not last and can leave patients disappointed. The cost of correcting a complication is also higher.

Facelift without Surgery

The use of dermal filler, Botox, peels and dermabrasion will tighten the skin and provide for a natural facial enhancement. This can help a patient avoid surgery or function as an adjunct to surgery. The term “liquid facelift” has been used to describe facial rejuvenation with Botox and fillers such as Restylane and Sculptra, although the results are obviously temporary and require periodic injections to maintain the results.

Facelift FAQs

How long do facelift surgery results last?

Most of Dr. Jaibaji’s facelift patients enjoy their facial rejuvenation for about 10 years. Although facelift reverses signs of aging, it cannot stop aging completely, so eventually signs of aging reappear. Patients who want to restore their previous results may consider further facial procedures, including revision facelift, at that point.

How can I extend my facelift results?

Sun exposure accelerates signs of aging on the face, so avoiding UV rays and committing to wearing sunscreen anytime you are in the sun are good strategies for protecting the skin on your face and neck. Using moisturizer and maintaining a stable weight can also help delay signs of aging.

At what age should I get a facelift?

Cosmetic Facelift La Jolla, CAMost patients wait until their 40s or 50s to seek facelift because that is when dissatisfaction over wrinkles, jowls and sagging skin on the neck sets in. However, there is no perfect time for all patients to seek the procedure since aging differs from individual to individual. So long as you are in good health and have realistic expectations about what facelift can achieve, you are probably a good candidate for the procedure.
