For extensive facial sagginess, Raffi Hovsepian, M.D., often recommends a traditional facelift. As a strong advocate of minimally-invasive techniques, he strives to create natural-looking enhancements with minimum disruption to the tissues in order to re-drape loose facial muscles and restore the position, contour, and appearance of facial tissues. Depending on your facial enhancement goals, Dr. Hovsepian may recommend an approach that could include a brow lift or neck lift as well.
For individuals who have relatively good skin tone but have moderately sagging facial tissues, a mini-facelift may offer distinct advantages in terms of recovery and post-procedure comfort. Dr. Raffi Hovsepian offers a short-scar, S-Lift technique; as well as mini-facelift procedure focused on the jaw line, cheeks, and mid-face. These procedures allow for an incision hidden behind the ear. Some patients will benefit from a dual approach that includes non-invasive treatments such as Botox® Cosmetic, facial fat grafting, or facial fillers along with the mini-facelift.
Also known as a cheek lift, a mid-facelift restores youthful vitality to the mid-face, lifting and shaping the cheeks to achieve a natural rejuvenated look without the need to undergo a full facelift. This procedure is often reserved for individuals not yet in need of a full facelift. Mid-facelifts are ideal for reducing puffiness under the eyes, improving the contour of the upper cheeks, and reducing nasolabial folds. Through limited incisions, Dr. Hovsepian can restore a youthful balance; with smooth, full, and firm curves.
Sagging skin and muscles in the neck area can hide the healthy line of your jaw and seem to pull your whole face downward. Raffi Hovsepian, M.D., offers procedures including cervical and submental lifts to tighten loose muscles and eliminate excess skin or fat near the neck and chin, and in some cases can pair this procedure with an upper-facial procedure to provide symmetry and a more balanced youthful appearance.
A skilled facelift surgeon, Dr. Raffi Hovsepian and his highly trained surgical team demonstrate the highest level of professionalism in pursuing aesthetic and surgical standards for each procedure, providing personalized quality care. Dr. Hovsepian will happily discuss the measures taken to minimize incisions and ensure your results harmonize beautifully and naturally with your features.
