Face & Neck Lift

Introduction to

Most people don’t realize that they’re getting older until one day, they look into the mirror and it’s not someone they recognize. Clearly, we don’t suddenly change overnight, but it is somewhat eerie how frequently this happens to so many people. It’s not so much that you are a completely different person, but things like gravity, loss of skin elasticity, or environmental conditions slowly change your appearance and make you look much older.

At Aesthetic Contours by Dr. Ali Heidari in the Inland Empire (Upland, California), the Facelift is an incredibly popular and useful way to counteract these effects. Dr. Heidari strives to be the best at performing Facelifts for his clients and uses his knowledge and artistic eye to help him reach towards that goal. If you look at yourself and wonder how the years just disappeared, it’s possible to rediscover the old you with a Facelift and you should keep reading below to find out more.

What is a Facelift?

Aesthetic Contours

A facelift at Aesthetic Contours by Dr. Heidari in the Inland Empire (Upland, CA), will leave you with a smooth, fresh look that can take years off of your appearance. Technically known as Rhytidectomy, it is a surgical procedure used to smooth the loose skin on your face and neck, and to reduce the most apparent signs of aging in the facial area. It can improve wrinkles around the mouth, a slacking jawline, and sagging jowls.

Additionally, Dr. Heidari can remove fat deposits around the neck and tighten underlying muscles in the face and neck. Facial fat restoration is often performed along with face and neck lifts via facial fat transfer through micro-cannula. This procedure adds the necessary volume in the upper cheeks and around the mouth for a more rejuvenated appearance.

What are the Benefits of a Facelift?

  • Discreet surgical scars
  • Can address multiple signs of aging
  • Long-lasting
  • Manageable downtime
  • Natural-looking results
  • Re-contours your jawline and neck
  • Tightens sagging skin
  • Works for men and women at any age

Who are the Best Candidates for a Facelift?

Patients looking to be good candidates for a Facelift should be overall healthy, have no medical conditions that impair healing, nonsmoker, and maintain a positive outlook with realistic expectations for the results of the procedure.

You could also be a great candidate if you are looking to fix the following skin issues:
  • Face and neck skin has begun to sag, but skin has elasticity and bone structure is strong and well-defined
  • Loss of a well-defined jawline
  • Deep wrinkles in the cheeks
  • Loose skin, wrinkles, or excess fatty tissue in the neck

What’s the First Step?

Aesthetic Contours

The first step in getting a Facelift, Neck lift, or both is to contact your closest Aesthetic Contours location and schedule a consultation. During your appointment, you will meet with Dr. Heidari who will evaluate your face and neck to determine what would work best for you. During this time, you will be able to discuss your goals from the surgery and any current concerns you may have. He will ask you about your medical history to make sure there will be no unnecessary complications during the surgery. After he has all of the information he needs, Dr. Heidari will create a surgical plan just for you.

If you agree with this drafted plan, then you will meet with our Patient Coordinator who will help you pick a date for your procedure. You will also receive some important directions to follow before your surgery so that you have the safest and most successful operation.

What to Expect on the Day of a Facelift

Aesthetic Contours

Dr. Heidari performs a face-lift by making an incision around the natural contour of the ear and your earlobe along your hairline. This helps keep any scarring hidden. The skin is then tightened and redraped. If a neck lift is performed, you may have a small incision under your chin.

Dr. Heidari can also compliment the face and neck lift with the latest techniques in laser skin resurfacing. This unique surgery/laser combination addresses all of the problems of aging skin such as lack of tone, large pores, skin discoloration, and skin and deep tissue laxity. Together, these techniques provide the most comprehensive rejuvenating result.

During a facelift, complications are infrequent and usually minor. However, individuals vary significantly in anatomy, physical reactions, and healing abilities, meaning outcomes are never 100% predictable. Some complications that may arise include hematoma (blood under the skin that must be removed), injury to the nerves that control facial muscles (usually temporary), infection, and adverse reactions to anesthesia. If you smoke, you should talk to Dr. Heidari about other alternatives because you are more likely to experience complications. If for some reason you experience a complication, Dr. Heidari and the staff at Aesthetic Conoturs are here to help correct it and care for you every step of the way.

Facelift Recovery

Your bandage will stay in place for one to two days. You may experience some increased swelling in the first 24 to 48 hours after your surgery and experience some numbness. Your stitches will be removed after about one week. Most bruising will disappear in about two weeks.

How Much Does a Facelift Cost in the Inland Empire?

Aesthetic Contours

The cost of a Facelift in the Inland Empire will vary on multiple factors, and if you are including a Necklift, that will affect the price.
