What Can I Expect From a Facelift & Neck Lift?
The goal of all facial rejuvenation procedures should always be to give the patient natural looking results. To achieve this goal, Dr. Azizzadeh takes a very individualized and innovative approach to facial rejuvenation surgery. The aging process is different for everyone, so Dr. Azizzadeh believes the facelift techniques used should be customized to the patient’s exact anti-aging needs.
Not only will a facelift and neck lift with Dr. Azizzadeh tighten loose skin to diminish the appearance of lines and wrinkles, but it will also address volume loss for a truly youthful outcome. In many cases, Dr. Azizzadeh utilizes a combination of procedures in conjunction with what is thought of as a traditional facelift to achieve the most balanced and natural-looking results. During your consultation with Dr. Azizzadeh he will be able to tell you what procedures your customized facelift will include. Because so many of our patients travel from overseas to have surgery with Dr. Azizzadeh, we offer Skype consultations so that you can meet with Dr. Azizzadeh online before coming to Beverly Hills.

Do I Need A Facelift & Neck Lift?
Dr. Azizzadeh created the concept of the “Aging Arc” to visually describe the aging process in relation to a one’s age in actual years. On the negative spectrum of the Aging Arc, people either appear older than they truly are or drastically younger due to cosmetic intervention. Dr. Azizzadeh’s goal is to get his patients back to the positive range on the Aging Arc, meaning their facial appearance is youthful and the best it can be for their chronological age. During a consultation with Dr. Azizzadeh, he will evaluate the patient and determine where they fall on the Aging Arc and determine what facial rejuvenation procedures are needed to put them back into the positive range of the Arc.
Some of the most common signs a patient is ready for a facelift include:
- Skin laxity (loose or saggy skin)
- Volume loss as a result of fat redistribution and bony resorption
- Dynamic expression lines and deep wrinkles
- Loss of skin elasticity and collagen
- Asymmetrical facial aging
Additionally, a patient may be a good candidate for a neck lift if they have one or more of the following issues:
- Fat deposits and buildup—with age the neck is prone to developing a buildup of fat both under the chin and around the jowls
(sides of the chin)
- Skin laxity—skin begins to droop and sag
- Muscle laxity—the muscles on each side of the neck begin to lose their structure
- Sub-muscular laxity—the system of tissues underneath the muscles can suffer the effects of aging, and droop or sag, leaving loose and excess skin
How is a Facelift / Neck Lift Performed?
With a holistic approach to facial rejuvenation, Dr. Azizzadeh examines the patient’s face and neck together and determines the underlying issues. Once he has established the extent of the affects of aging, he will develop a treatment plant that encompasses all the procedures necessary to provide the patient with the best anti-aging results possible.
Dr. Azizzadeh’s primary objective with facelift and necklift surgery is to create results that simply enhance a patient’s natural beauty, while maintaining their cultural identity. During a facelit, Dr. Azizzadeh precisely tightens and sculpts the patient’s facial features, as well as restores facial volume with fat grafting. It is this combination of tightening and restoring volume that enhances the patient’s natural facial contours for natural-looking results.
A neck lift is a great procedure for an individual who is experiencing excess skin and muscle laxity on the neck. As we age, the skin on the neck can become loose and slack, excess fat and skin relaxation can create jowls, fatty deposits form under the chin, and muscle banding make the neck appear visibly aged.
Dr. Azizzadeh can correct the loss of youthful contours in the neck from the issues mentioned above, with a neck lift. As an internationally renowned facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Azizzadeh’s goal is to achieve harmony with all vectors of the face, including the neck. In order to do this, he does not simply tighten the outer skin on the neck. Instead, he uses deep plane lifting techniques, ensuring the neck is tight, elegant and natural looking.
