Though aging is a natural part of life, its effects are not always welcomed. As aging, stress and gravity take their toll over time, your face may start to show effects such as sagging and wrinkling. Dr. Yeh offers facelift procedures for patients who are concerned with the appearance of the lower portion of their face. If you have sagging skin, excess fat, or loose muscles in your cheeks, chin, jowls, or neck, this procedure may be right for you.
Today, facelift procedures are even safer and more effective than ever. Advanced techniques mean that the taut, windblown appearance that sometimes resulted after facelift procedures of decades past are no longer a possibility. The results of facelifts provided by Dr. Yeh look entirely natural. Since Dr. Yeh is an expert in surgical and non-surgical approaches to rejuvenating the head and neck, he has the extensive knowledge and specialized experience to achieve outstanding, natural-looking results.
There are a number of variations of facelift surgery now available. From the less invasive ‘mini facelift’ to the dramatic deep plane facelift, Dr. Yeh provides a number of procedures tailored to each patient’s individual needs and concerns. He understands that not all facelift variations are suitable for every face, and strives to select the right procedure for every unique patient.
Why Undergo a Facelift in Orange County?
Facelift surgeries have many benefits, such as:
Do you look in the mirror and find that you look older or more tired than you feel? If you don’t like what you see, and wish to correct these issues, you may be a candidate for a facelift. Most patients select this procedure because they want to reverse the signs of aging; they often find that a rhytidectomy erases years off their facial appearance.
During your consultation with Dr. Yeh, he will discuss your concerns and desires, assessing your situation to determine whether a facelift is right for you. He will examine your facial anatomy, the condition of your skin, and your goals to recommend the procedures which will best meet your needs and achieve the best results. Facelift procedures may be performed on patients of every age; Dr. Yeh’s skill level enables him to achieve dramatic, yet natural-looking results regardless of the extent of the procedure.
Consultation Before a Facelift
Your journey to rejuvenation begins with the consultation visit. Dr. Yeh strongly believes in the power of this initial interaction. At the initial consultation visit, he will listen to your concerns regarding your appearance and evaluate your skin and the underlying structure of your face, making recommendations that will address your specific desires. This consultation enables you to ensure that Dr. Yeh is on the same page as you regarding the procedure. It is this visit that allows him to tailor the treatment plan to your individual needs.
Facelift surgeries can be performed with either general anesthesia, or local anesthesia with a sedative. Dr. Yeh will discuss your options during the consultation visit. During the procedure, he will make short incisions behind your ears. These incision will be made in the skin’s natural creases so that they will be hidden after surgery. Then, working through these small incisions, he will lift, trim, and relocate the tissues of the face. Injections of dermal fillers or fat transfer procedures may be used to restore volume, if needed. Then, the skin will be redraped over the newly recountoured tissues. Finally, the incisions are closed. After surgery, most patients are left with thin incision lines that will fade over time.
