Even though you may feel young and energetic, the signs of aging around your face may be telling you and others a different story. If the face in your mirror is older-looking than the face you want, you might want to consider a facelift procedure. 

Facelift surgery is specially designed to remove excess fat, tighten the facial muscles and remove droopy skin around the face and neck. When planning your facelift procedure, Dr. Namazie will carefully evaluate your face, including your bone structure, muscle placement and skin type. Every facelift procedure is completely individualized according to your goals and unique physical considerations.

It may take six months or more for you to see the full outcome and benefits from surgery. You should be up and around within a week and most patients return to work within two to three weeks. In the meantime, we will advise you on postsurgical methods such as makeup to cover or camouflage any bruising and swelling (both are normal conditions after the procedure).

The amazing one-hour facelift

The one-hour facelift is a new and novel technique in minimally invasive facelifting. Rather than making large incisions, Dr. Namazie uses the suture suspension technique to naturally elevate the cheek fat pad to its normal position in the midface.

As the name says, the procedure takes about one hour. It can be performed under local anesthesia in the office with very little downtime. We have been performing this procedure for more than five years and have seen good results in most patients. The sutures we place are very similar to those placed in the endoscopic facelift, which also delivers good results.
