Benefits offered by a facelift procedure

Numerous factors, such as the loss of facial fat and the thinning of dermal tissue, can contribute to the gradual deterioration of the quality of your skin. These changes may be brought on by ageing, gravity, sun damage, smoking, hereditary factors, and stress.

By removing extra skin, tightening underlying tissue and muscle, and then redraping the remaining skin for a smoother, more taut appearance to the face and neck, modern facelift operations aim to restore many signs of aging encountered through the years. Many common signs of aging can be resolved with a facelift in only one procedure if you are struggling with any of them.

Facelift incisions are designed to be almost undetectable, so there will be minimal scarring or other indicators that you underwent a cosmetic procedure. Most facelift incisions are made behind the ear or along the hairline for easy concealment following surgery, though the size and exact location of your incisions may vary based on the regions you wish to treat and the outcomes you seek. 

Facelift results that were obviously overdone are a thing of the past. Instead than just tightening the additional skin on your face, cosmetic surgery treatments now concentrate on reshaping underlying tissue to give you a more natural-looking appearance.

Dr. Moubayed is an expert in facial anatomy and helping patients look younger while maintaining their natural appearance. His objective is always to achieve a refreshed, natural appearance following facelift procedures.

Every patient has distinct expectations and goals, as well as various tolerances for downtime and surgical complexity. Because of this, each instance needs to be unique. Dr. Moubayed will make sure that the strategy is appropriate for you, whether we opt for a full-face deep plane rhytidectomy or a mini-lower facelift.

Recovery after surgery is important. Dr. Moubayed is able to reduce his patients’ recovery time and discomfort by using meticulous technique, minimally invasive procedures when indicated, and very specific pre and post-operative protocols.

What type of facelift does Dr. Moubayed perform?

Dr. Moubayed’s technique of choice is the deep-plane face and neck lift, where meticulous dissection is carried out above the facial nerve to volumize and reposition the descended midface tissues. To optimize results, sometimes CO2 laser, radiofrequency, facial implants, liposuction, and fat grafting are added to the procedure.

What are the risks of a facelift?

Like any facial plastic surgery procedure, face lift surgery presents the universal (but minimal) risks of scarring, bleeding (and bruising), infection (superficial or deep), and pain (temporary or permanent).

However, the main risk of any cosmetic surgery is not satisfied with the result. After a proper consultation that includes a complete examination and photo evaluation, Dr. Moubayed can generally produce the results desired by the patient. However, we do not control the healing of tissues, and some patients heal in an unpredictable way producing asymmetries or irregularities that can sometimes require touch-ups.

Any facelift procedure involves the risk of producing paralysis of a facial nerve branch, temporary (and sometimes permanent) numbness of the face or ear (via the great auricular nerve), hair loss, and changes in skin pigmentation.

Dr. Moubayed is a surgeon that is exclusively trained in facial surgery. He has a conservative and individualized approach with each patient. All patients are followed closely after surgery with very precise and very clear instructions. All of this is done in order to minimize the risks listed above.

Deep plane facelift surgery

The SMAS (superficial muscular aponeurotic system), the facial expression muscles, as well as important facial retention ligaments, are released and repositioned during the deep plane facelift procedure. The midface is usually lifted more vertically, giving the patient a more youthful and renewed appearance. In contrast to prior procedures where the vector of pull was backwards providing a windswept look, this vertical vector of pull is essential in achieving natural results in the face.

The deep plane approach also enables the repositioning of nearby structures, including the fat pads on the midface, the replacement of decreased cheek volume, and the enhancement of facial contours. This treatment has the potential to provide outcomes that look natural and last for a long time.

Mini facelift surgery

The goal of a limited incision facelift (or mini-lift), often referred to as a small facelift, is to reshape the jawline, cheeks, and jowls for a more youthful appearance. It entails a tiny, less noticeable incision into the hairline and around the ear, and it might use various procedures to address the underlying soft tissue and muscular layers (SMAS).

In comparison to a standard facelift, a small facelift has less downtime and is frequently done under local anaesthetic, with a 7–10 day recovery period. Based on your unique concerns and preferred results, Dr. Moubayed will advise you on the optimal kind of facelift you need.

Why get a facelift procedure?

Our facial bones resorb as we age, our skin becomes saggy and dull, our ligaments stretch, and the volume and compartments of our facial fat shifts. But each face is unique, and each face is affected differently by these age changes depending on how much they have changed it.

  • A sagging midface
  • Prominent jowls
  • No distinction between the face and neck
  • Platysmal bands (“Turkey-neck”)
  • Excess skin face and neck skin

Although non-surgical procedures like facial fillers, neuromodulators, and others may seem enticing, they frequently leave patients unsatisfied and can be just as expensive as a facelift. A facelift can result in inconspicuous scarring, direct control over and alterations to the facial anatomy that are longer lasting.

To improve the results, it can also be combined with other techniques. A facelift can increase your self-confidence in addition to improving your appearance by realigning your facial muscles to their more youthful position, addressing sagging skin and tissue, reshaping your jawline, and producing a balanced and natural-looking facial appearance. Overall, Dr. Moubayed’s facelift gives patients a refreshed appearance by keeping risks to a minimum.

A facelift, sometimes referred to as a rhytidectomy, is a surgical operation that tightens the skin and underlying muscle layers and repositions drooping or loose tissue in order to enhance the appearance of the face. A facelift aims to give the face a more youthful, renewed appearance.

Facelifts do not last forever as your face will keep on aging afterwards. The generally accepted international answer is 10-12 years. At that point, the procedure may be repeated.

The shape or look of your eyes won’t change as a result of a facelift in and of itself.

It is true that during the initial few weeks of recovery, swelling may make the area around your eyes look larger and the skin under your eyes less wrinkled.

Despite recent considerable advances in nonsurgical facelift treatments, they still cannot match the outcomes of a surgical facelift. The most efficient method of treating prominent age indications in the midface and lower neck is still a surgical facelift.
