Over the course of a person’s life, exposure to the suns rays, stress, and gravity all play important factors in the sagging of our face and skin. Known in the medical world as a rhytidectomy, a facelift aims to achieve a smoother and firmer skin appearance for the patient. Ultimately, a facelift is performed to realign facial skin and to remove deposits of excess fat that have accumulated over the years.
The general procedure for a facelift involves one of our expert facial plastic surgeons making small incisions near the hairline, ear, and lower scalp. After the incisions are made, tissues and fat deposits are separated, the skin is pulled, and your plastic surgeon will remove any excess, unnecessary skin or fat. Following your procedure, your La Peer surgeon will immediately wrap your head and face with bandages to decrease swelling and speed your recovery time. Though each patient is unique, most bruising and swelling subsides in the months following your facelift, with full results to be expected around month three or four.
A person may be a good candidate to undergo a traditional facelift if they are well into the aging process and have not previously undergone facial rejuvenation techniques. A facelift is a fantastic way to see an improvement in skin elasticity and tightness while also reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles brought on by age.
When considering a facelift, it’s important to realize the necessity of undergoing the procedure with an expert facial plastic surgeon. At La Peer Health Systems, world-renowned cosmetic surgeon Dr. Babak Azizzadeh alongside Dr. Carlo Honrado work to achieve natural, fitting results by listening to the patients goals while providing their expert opinion to reach optimal outcomes. Additionally, Dr. Azizzadeh and Dr. Honrado utilize the most cutting edge and minimally invasive surgical techniques to give patients the best results possible. These minimally invasive techniques also yield less pain, mild bruising and a quicker recovery.

A mini facelift is a cosmetic procedure that corrects unsightly wrinkles and jowls, specifically in the lower portion of the face and results in a more youthful look. Yet, it accomplishes many of the goals of the traditional facelift. These facelifts are tailored to meet specific needs by focusing on trouble spots, and is a great option if you are looking to take five years off your face. The mini facelift requires less down time than a full-face lift and it’s a great alternative for those not wanting a long recovery, plus the price can be significantly lower than a full facelift.
During your initial consultation with Dr. Azizzadeh or Dr. Honrado, we’ll discuss the best surgical options to achieve your goals. Our facial plastic surgeons can also use advanced 3D imaging software to project images of your final results before ever undergoing surgery.
An endoscopic facelift, also known as a scarless facelift to many, is typically for those who do not have a large amount of skin that needs reshaping. The procedure involves using an endoscope to achieve facial rejuvenation and facial enhancements. The best candidates for an endoscopic facelift are people with moderate facial imperfections caused by excess fatty tissue and loosened facial muscles. Many patients who are good candidates for this procedure have sagging cheeks, visible lines around the nose, and thin, downturned lips, though they typically still have somewhat supple skin.
The benefits of an endoscopic facelift include:
- Scar less Incision
- Quick Recovery & Healing Time
- Easy Upkeep with Facial Fillers
Patients who are a great candidate to undergo an endoscopic facelift often times combine the treatment with other facial rejuvenation techniques, including fat grafting, facial fillers or Botox. While an endoscopic facelift can help remove the appearance of wrinkles brought on by age, the use of additional fillers can add volume and promote collagen growth, all important factors in achieving a natural and youthful appearance. Both Dr. Azizzadeh and Dr. Honrado find that the best facelift results often utilize a combination of surgical and non-surgical methods to comprehensively address the aging process.
Otherwise known as the anti-gravity lift, the mid face lift is a surgical procedure that provides a natural, more youthful and refreshed appearance to the face by repositioning sagging cheeks, softening smile lines, reducing eye hollowness, rising the corners of the lips, and restoring cheek fullness. During a mid facelift, your La Peer facial plastic surgeon will elevate the malar pad in your cheek, which brings fullness to the surrounding areas. This is often times not achieved during a traditional facelift, which can be accompanied by facial fillers to see similar results.
This is a beneficial procedure if you are looking to address the hollowness under the lower eyelids and improve the position of laugh lines. These are complex areas of the face, and are not treated with traditional facelifts. Our expert surgeons strategically place their incisions so that your scars will be completely hidden, meaning that no one will be able to tell that you’ve undergone a facial rejuvenation procedure.

In order to take advantage of all of the wonderful changes associated with the facelift, the patient must pay close attention to the recovery process. We would like to share a few helpful tips:
- Rest is absolutely necessary for the first 24 hours.
- Apply antibiotic ointments to all incisions as recommended by Dr. Azizzadeh or Dr. Honrado.
- The dressing should be left undisturbed until your surgeon removes it.
- You may shower after 48 hours, gently washing the hair.
- Do not put on earrings for three weeks after surgery.
- Keep head elevated while relaxing or sleeping for at least 2 weeks.
- No heavy exercise for 2 weeks.
Following your facial rejuvenation procedure at La Peer Health Systems, our facial plastic surgeons will make sure that you understand how to properly care for your incisions in the days, weeks, and months following your surgery. It’s important to remember to be patient during the healing process, as everyone heals differently and sees varying results at different stages.
