A facelift is a surgical procedure designed to address the signs of aging. It restores a youthful, refreshed look by refining your facial contours. In addition to smoothing out wrinkles, a custom facelift will tighten the underlying muscles, reduce sagging skin, and correct the volume and distribution of facial fat to make the contours of the cheeks, neck, and jawline appear fresh, youthful, and defined.

The facelift procedure
There are a variety of techniques available in modern facelifts, including SMAS lift, deep plane lift, and MACS lift. During your initial consultation, Dr. Sedgh will thoroughly discuss the pros and cons of each approach to select the optimum technique to successfully treat your signs of aging and meet your surgery goals.
A detailed description of a facelift
Depending on the type of facelift to be performed, you may be sedated with local or general anesthesia. Dr. Sedgh will then make small incisions (strategically placed to ensure virtually invisible scars post-surgery) to access the underlying connective tissues and muscles of the face. He will then reposition these deeper facial tissues and trim any excess skin.
A facelift is usually an outpatient procedure unless otherwise advised. Immediately after surgery, you can expect mild to moderate pain and discomfort, as well as swelling and bruising. However, these side effects typically subside within 10 to 14 days with Dr. Sedgh’s specialized recovery plan. You can plan to return to work or other usual activities about two weeks after surgery.
Exceptional follow-up care
During your first post-surgery visit, Dr. Sedgh himself will carefully examine you to observe your healing progress. The evaluation can take place at his private clinic, via telephone, or with video conferencing.
Expect several follow-up appointments from the first day up to a year following your surgery, as this will allow Dr. Sedgh to personally monitor and evaluate your results, as well as your overall health and wellbeing throughout your entire recovery.
Comfort & Transparency From Start To Finish
When under the care of Dr. Sedgh, you will feel comfortable, cared for, and you will understand every aspect of your upcoming treatment, whether surgical or non-surgical. His approach to facial enhancement is to achieve a refreshed, natural look – with transparency, honesty, and the highest level of ethical treatment, from start to finish.
