Newport Beach Facial Plastic Surgeon Prolongs Facelift Results with Lifelong Lift™ Technique
Dr. Ali Sepehr, a double board-certified facial plastic surgeon based in Newport Beach, performs a specialized version of the facelift procedure to maximize the outcome of surgery. Offered at OC Facial Plastic Surgery, the technique can provide patients with long-lasting results that endure for years into the future.
Newport Beach, CA — According to statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, a facelift is one of the most well-known and frequently performed cosmetic surgeries worldwide. This facial rejuvenation procedure can make patients look younger in many ways, from wrinkle reduction to the smoothing of loose skin and jowls along the jawline. While the transformation achieved can be powerful, facelift surgery does not permanently stop the aging process. Consequently, some facelift patients may notice additional signs of facial aging as early as a few years after their procedure. To extend the longevity of a facelift, facial plastic surgeon Ali Sepehr, MD developed a dynamic facelift technique known as the Lifelong Lift™. This variation of a traditional facelift addresses the deeper facial tissues as opposed to solely the overlying skin, often providing the extensive support necessary to achieve long-term results.
Performed at OC Facial Plastic Surgery, Dr. Sepehr’s Lifelong Lift™ is designed to achieve enhancement that’s more than just skin deep. Rather than simply lifting and redraping sagging skin, which is characteristic of traditional facelift procedures, Dr. Sepehr works to correct the deeper planes of the face while also treating descended tissue in the neck. This far-reaching rejuvenation involves repositioning the layer of tissue underneath the skin, known as the Superficial Musculoaponeurotic System (SMAS). The SMAS layer provides substantial support for the facial structure, and manipulation of the SMAS is key to maintaining a smooth, youthful facial appearance.
In contrast with more limited approaches, the Lifelong Lift™ is designed to treat descended adipose tissue (fat) and musculature in addition to superficial skin. This multi-modal approach can correct the most prominent hallmarks of facial aging, which include jowls along the jawline, “parentheses” wrinkles (nasolabial folds), sagging fat, and drooping tissue in the neck. Because a Lifelong Lift™ addresses the inner SMAS for improvement within the deeper facial planes, the lifespan of the results can often outlast those of a traditional facelift.
Dr. Sepehr’s before-and-after photos reveal some of the outcomes previously achieved with a Lifelong Lift™. To obtain a full grasp of what the facelift procedure can accomplish, Dr. Sepehr encourages individuals considering facial plastic surgery to schedule a consultation with a qualified facial plastic surgeon. He emphasizes the importance of selecting a doctor who approaches a facelift by comprehensively treating the facial tissues, as the results of the procedure are only as effective as a plastic surgeon’s techniques.
