One of the most popular procedures at the Southern California Center for Surgical Arts is a facelift. With this surgical treatment, Dr. Husam Elias operates on specific regions of the face to treat loose features and lines. Depending on your unique concerns, a facelift can focus on the eyes, the mid-face area and cheeks, the bottom portion including the mouth, jowls, neck, and more for an all-encompassing youthful look. The facelift technique we use depends on your desired outcome, the health and condition of your skin, the degree of skin laxity, age, lifestyle, and other influences. Some individuals need a full facelift while some may only want a mid-facelift. Dr. Elias is a meticulous surgeon who understands the complexity and delicate anatomy of a facelift procedure.

Many patients seeking information about a facelift procedure are bothered by lines and wrinkles around the middle and lower portions of the face. Candidates should understand that age doesn't necessarily determine the best time to have a facelift. There are several different reasons, as well as many lift types, that come into play. The method chosen will vary for those between 30 and 40 years old vs. those in their 60s and 70s. The condition of the skin is one of the primary factors in the planning process. Facelift candidates need to be physically healthy, refrain from smoking, and maintain reasonable result expectations.

There are numerous facelifts available. Some methods are slightly more invasive than others. It is also common for some individuals to have a brow lift or fillers and BOTOX® to complement their results. A few of the more common facelift options include:

  • Full Facelift
    Considered the gold standard, the full or "traditional" facelift most often incorporates an incision close to the hairline, then extends down to the area near the temples, reaching the base of the ears. The deeper layer of facial tissues and muscles are delicately pulled and securely tightened to create a lifted outcome, which softens excessive loose skin and droopy features. This facelift is reserved for individuals who have signs of aggressive aging. With this lift, various facial rejuvenation methods may be used, including upper or lower blepharoplasty to enhance the eyes or neck reduction for the lower region.
  • Mid-Facelift
    Using a similar approach to the mini facelift, the surgery known as a mid-facelift focuses on the hollow and lax areas near the cheekbones and the upper jaw. This lift works well for those who desire improvement in the lower two-thirds of the face, including the jowls.
  • Lower Facelift
    This particular facelift addresses the chin area and neck, and in many cases, the jowls. Methods of a nonsurgical nature, such as laser skin tightening or KYBELLA®, can also be used for chin augmentation to attain a softer, tighter neck.
  • Mini Facelift
    During a mini facelift, a tiny incision is placed near the ears to lift the skin to a higher position, which affects the mouth and jawline. This technique creates subtle improvements that look natural.

You should expect to have bruising, swelling, possible drainage, slight to moderate pain, and soreness, which can be helped by pain medication. You should look and feel normal after several weeks.

My experience with this office was absolutely stellar. Firstly, the staff welcomes you warmly when you arrive. Diana (doctor’s assistant) met me in the exam room.  Diana has a way of instantly making you feel comfortable and any nervousness you may be feeling is dissipated.... Because you can’t stop laughing. Then enters Dr. Elias.... He is extremely approachable, honest, and knowledgeable. It doesn’t hurt that he has multiple degrees. I am ecstatic that I found this business:

Dr. Elias pulled my wisdom teeth out like they called his mamma fat or something! Surgery was quick and basically painless. Didn’t need any of the pain meds and was back at work two days later looking like a snack. Diane was the nurse that took care of me for most of the process and she was so wonderful, kind, funny and sweet. If my wisdom teeth every grow back, I will definitely be coming back to Dr. Elias immediately. Thank you!
