The skin begins to lose elasticity at the same time the facial tissues start to lose volume. Over a number of years, this can lead to deep wrinkles, jowls, and loose, unsightly skin and vertical bands on the neck. Fortunately, with modern medical technology, we no longer have to leave our youthful good looks behind as we age.

This happens to be one of his personal favorite operations, and he truly puts his heart and soul into performing these procedures. He has a large and impressive following, including celebrities and many people from all over the country. 

What Is A Facelift?

A facelift is a surgical procedure to lift and firm sagging facial tissues. This procedure creates a more youthful and aesthetically pleasing appearance, helping turn back the clock to achieve an improved version of yourself. Facelift can help you look younger and more attractive by lifting and tightening deep facial tissues, smoothing deep folds, and removing excess sagging skin.

What is the cost?

The cost of a facelift depends on the complexity of the surgery, which type of facelift you’re having, and a number of other factors. During your consultation, Dr. Egrari will examine your skin and face and understand your aesthetic goals for your appearance. Based on this consultation, he will design a personalized surgical plan for you. This surgical plan includes the cost of your facelift.

Benefits of a Facelift

A facelift achieves many benefits for patients who would like to achieve a dramatic rejuvenation, targeting multiple problem areas with the same procedure. Facelift benefits include the following:

  • Lifted, more youthful features
  • Firmer skin
  • A defined and sculpted jawline
  • Eliminated jowls and double chin
  • Contoured, refined facial features
  • As many as ten years taken off the face
  • Smoothed lines, creases, and wrinkles
  • Better self-confidence
  • Overall facial rejuvenation

Facelift Candidates

  • If you have experienced a loss of skin elasticity and muscle tone on the face and neck.
  • If you have developed jowls and deep creases between the base of the nose and the corners of the mouth.
  • If you have developed facial and neck wrinkles.
  • If you have lost definition in your chin and neck contours.
  • If you feel your face looks older than you want it to look.

Advanced Technology In Facelift Plastic Surgery

The facelift is one of the oldest cosmetic procedures performed today. Surgical technology has advanced since the procedure was first performed in the early 1900s. Techniques have been constantly modified and improved over the past 100 years, and a modern facelift procedure can now achieve superior, longer-lasting results.

Surgeons today can choose from wide range of facelift methods to effectively achieve facial rejuvenation for people of all different age groups, facial structures, and levels of aging. Modern non-surgical facial rejuvenation procedures and surgical facial lifting procedures are sometimes referred to as a “facelift”, but in a true facelift, the surgeon elevates facial tissues and removes excess skin. One of the most important aspects of a facelift is the deeper sculpting and rejuvenation that is performed. Fat injection (to provide volume) has also become a very common adjunctive procedure that is performed with facelift.

Types Of Facelifts

Dr. Egrari will custom-tailor your facelift in Seattle to suit your specific needs. There are three basic types of facelift surgery, including:

Mini-facelift

A mini-facelift procedure may be appropriate for patients with mild jowling and skin sagging. This less invasive technique allows the plastic surgeon to use shorter incisions to tighten deep facial tissues. Incisions are typically located along the hairline, above the ear, or in the natural crease around the ear. This surgery may be performed to refine the jawline, correct and tighten jowls, and rejuvenate the appearance of your face.

Standard facelift

Traditional facelift surgery is performed to address moderate to severe aging in the mid-face and neck. This procedure requires a more extensive recovery time and produces more dramatic results than a mini-facelift. Incisions are discretely placed behind the hairline and hidden in the natural folds around the ear.

Extensive facelift

This procedure is the ultimate in facial rejuvenation, as it extends towards the temples and pulls the entire mid-face and corners of the eyes towards a natural but youthful direction.

The Procedure

There are a variety of advanced surgical facelift procedures. Your specific treatment will be based upon your facial structure and the degree of skin and muscle laxity. Facelift plastic surgery is performed on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation. Incisions are made within the hairline (or along the hair margin) above the ear, extending around the earlobes and ending in or below the hairline behind the ears.

 The subcutaneous layers and neck muscles (SMAS) are tightened, the facial skin re-draped and lifted, and the excess skin removed. Dr. Egrari uses a variety of different adjunctive procedures to build up the cheek area and restore areas of lost volume to create the best facelift results possible for his Seattle patients. Fat injection has become a very important adjunct in performing a facelift, as it restores the plump, firm look of youth to the facial structure.

Non-surgical Facial Rejuvenation Techniques

Although facelift surgery may be more appropriate for patients with advanced signs of aging, younger patients with minimal aging may benefit from a variety of non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatment options. After a one-on-one consultation and comprehensive evaluation of your facial anatomy, Dr. Egrari can individually tailor a treatment plan for you. Non-surgical treatment options to create a more youthful facial appearance include:

Ultherapy®

A non-invasive treatment that lifts and rejuvenates the skin without surgery. It is also the only cosmetic procedure that uses ultrasound energy, which allows your provider to see the targeted layers of tissue and ensure that energy is delivered in the most beneficial locations.

Liquid facelift

With the strategic placement of dermal fillers, Dr. Egrari’s providers  can camouflage early signs of aging. A liquid facelift can be performed to enhance the cheeks and minimize the appearance of pre-jowl grooves and nasolabial folds (from nose to the mouth).

Dermal fillers

With the latest advances in dermal filler products, more people than ever are choosing injectables over surgery for facial rejuvenation and to correct cosmetic facial flaws.
