An Irvine facelift can help both men and women regain a look of youthfulness by reshaping the face to minimize sagging and excessive fat deposits. While it does not stop the aging process, it can take years off the face, giving individuals increased confidence in public and helping them feel more comfortable in private. Facelifts are one of the most well-known cosmetic procedures, but they are often performed in conjunction with other lesser known procedures to create an overall improved look. For example, some people choose to have forehead or brow lifts at the same time, thus decreasing surgical costs when compared to having the surgeries separately.
A facelift is considered an invasive surgery that requires general anesthesia administered by a skilled anesthetist. Dr. Tavoussi performs his Irvine facelifts at the Pacifica Outpatient Surgery Center, which is staffed with highly trained anesthetists as well as ACLS-certified registered nurses in the operating rooms and post-operative units. The secure, peaceful atmosphere of the surgical center instantly sets our patients’ minds at rest. It is conveniently located in Huntington Beach, California, and serves the entire Orange County area.
Anesthesia is used prior to incisions being made. Irvine patients will be unaware of anything happening to them during the procedure. Dr. Tavoussi will make an incision around the outer contours of the face; the extent of the incision will depend on the type of facelift being performed. However, the incision often extends from the temples, around the back of the ear and into the lower hairline. Through this incision, the surgeon will remove fat, sculpt underlying tissues and redrape the skin. After the incisions heal, they are quite difficult to see because they are hidden in the hairline.
