Many people lose confidence as they age due to the changing appearance of their face and skin. As your skin loses tone and elasticity, you may struggle with fine lines, wrinkles, and sagginess that cause you to dislike what you see in the mirror. However, these natural parts of aging can be prevented or even reversed with help from board-certified surgeon Dr. Yaghoubian.
At AESTHETICA LA, Dr. Yaghoubian regularly performs facelifts in Tarzana to restore clients’ youthful and revitalized selves. Her practice offers various services to improve skin, facial structure, and overall look. If you wish to renew your confidence and gain a healthier, younger appearance, a facelift may be the option for you.
Changes in the skin are a normal part of the aging process. As you get older, your face’s shape and appearance may change due to loss of elasticity in the skin and an increase in the number of fat deposits below the skin’s surface. The following is a list of common, age-related changes that a facelift could address:
A facelift, also called a rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure to create a younger appearance by altering facial skin tissue. Depending on your facial structure, a facelift surgery may involve removing excess skin, smoothing out folds or deep wrinkles, and tightening the facial tissues.
Facelift surgery is usually done as an outpatient procedure, meaning that the patient can go home the same day. Dr. Yaghoubian will schedule all follow-up appointments to monitor the healing process after the surgery.
For a traditional facelift, the incision starts near the hairline at the temples. The incision then continues down and around the front of the ear area, ending behind the ears near the lower scalp area. Most of the time, patients can style their hair to hide the incision near the hairline until it fully heals. Dr. Yaghoubian works with patients and listens to their individual goals to achieve an optimal appearance while minimizing the visibility of incisions.
Although a person’s face and skin will continue to age after the surgery, the effects of a facelift can generally last about ten years. Following the removal of any stitches, patients can return to their normal daily activities within weeks. Often, there are no visible signs of the surgery except for a fresher, younger appearance.
Wrinkles, lines, and sagging in the face and skin are a natural part of the aging process. However, you can still achieve your dream appearance and regain your younger self through a facelift in Tarzana.
Restored confidence in your looks can positively impact every area of your life. If you are unhappy with how your face and skin are changing as you get older, reach out to Dr. Yaghoubian at AESTHETICA LA to learn how cosmetic surgery can help.
