What Are Facelift and Mid-Facelift Procedures?

A facelift and mid-facelift are cosmetic surgeries to revitalize your appearance. These anti-aging procedures specifically target fine lines, wrinkles, and loose, sagging skin, but each focuses on different areas.

  • A facelift, or rhytidectomy, is a customized cosmetic surgery that focuses on rejuvenating your appearance as you age. The procedure involves skin tightening, fat repositioning, and wrinkle reduction by tightening excess skin through incisions made around the hairline and behind the ears. Under Dr. Stepanyan’s expert guidance, a facelift can be a transformative way to regain your youthful contours, improve self-esteem, and enhance your overall well-being.
  • A mid-facelift is a more targeted approach to facial rejuvenation, focusing specifically on the mid-face area, including the cheeks and lower eyelids. This individualized procedure involves lifting the soft tissues and repositioning fat to restore lost volume in the cheeks – again, through incisions behind the ears.

What Issues Can a Facelift and Mid-Facelift Address?

Facelift and mid-facelift surgeries offer comprehensive aesthetic solutions for patients who notice various areas of concern.

  • Skin sagging: Skin loses its elasticity with age, leading to sagging in the face and neck. A facelift and mid-facelift tighten this loose skin, giving your face a more youthful contour.
  • Wrinkles and fine lines: Age brings wrinkles like nasolabial folds and marionette lines. Facelift and mid-facelift procedures can smooth these out, providing a rejuvenated appearance.
  • Volume loss: Lost volume in the cheeks is a common issue as the facial fat pads shift downward. A mid-facelift focuses on lifting and repositioning tissues.
  • Overall rejuvenation: Aging can alter your facial proportions, impacting your overall appearance. Facelift and mid-facelift surgeries restore this balance, providing a more youthful and harmonious look.

What Causes Our Faces To Age?

Many factors cause the skin to wrinkle and sag (i.e., exposure to the sun, genetics as well as the natural aging process). Have you noticed that children and young people have smooth, round faces? The fatty tissue is all throughout the contours of their face. As you age, skin starts to sag and doesn’t fit as tight as it used to. The folds become more prominent. Especially, around the chin, jawline, and along the neck.

Dr. Martin Stepanyan specializes in facelift surgery in Glendale. He performs these on patients wishing to enhance their appearance. As well as correct the signs of aging. This facial surgery is often performed in tandem with other procedures. The most common is eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty. Next, is a brow lift (forehead lift), chin augmentation/implant, and liposuction. These surgeries all have the goal of helping you to achieve a more youthful appearance.

A Glendale facelift patient can look 5 to 10 years younger. Dramatic as the end results are, this is not a simple procedure. It requires a week to 10 days of recovery.

Am I a Good Candidate for a Facelift or a Mid-Facelift in Beverly Hills?

Many healthy people are well-qualified for a facelift or mid-facelift surgery. Several key factors influence a successful outcome.

  • Physical health: Being in good overall health is crucial for any surgical procedure, including facelifts and mid-facelifts. If you have any chronic conditions like diabetes or heart issues, you should have them well-controlled. A thorough medical evaluation will assess your readiness for surgery.
  • Age considerations: These procedures are most effective for those who have noticeable signs of aging but still possess good skin elasticity. Typically, candidates are in their 40s to 70s , though this can vary.
  • Non-smoking: Smoking inhibits your body’s ability to heal. Since facelift and mid-facelift surgeries require a recovery period, Dr. Stepanyan strongly advises all his patients to quit smoking well before the procedure and remain tobacco-free afterward.
  • Realistic expectations: While these surgeries can bring transformative results, they’re not a cure-all. Knowing what the procedures can realistically achieve will set you up for satisfaction. You should undergo this transformation for your well-being – not due to external pressures or unrealistic expectations.
