Get Rid Of Wrinkles With Rejuvenating Facelift Surgery

By: Dr. Christopher Khorsandi


The face provides everyone with their own unique identity. But factors such as aging and sun exposure can cause drastic changes to the face, resulting in a wrinkled or tired appearance. Thanks to a rejuvenating facelift by VIP Plastic Surgery, women and men are able to restore a smoother, younger-looking appearance. Using an artistic approach and unparalleled skill, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Christopher Khorsandi produces gorgeous results using proven and progressive surgical techniques.

When the pull of gravity and expression lines causes our skin to sag and droop, facelift surgery is often used to lessen these effects. This popular procedure typically involves making incisions in the hairline near the ear, and the skin is lifted and repositioned before trimming away excess skin. Based on your anatomy and desired results, Dr. Khorsandi may also tighten the muscles and remove or reposition extra fat. At the end of the process, patients should see firmer and smoother results.

How to get rid of wrinkles

The first step for patients who want to get rid of wrinkles is a skin care consultation. During this appointment, Dr. Khorsandi will review your medical history to see if you are a good candidate for plastic surgery. Ideal candidates for a facelift are non-smokers in good physical health who have realistic expectations about the outcome. While the most common age range for facelift candidates is 50 – 70, we have also helped younger and older patients get the youthful and long-lasting results they desire. At VIP Plastic Surgery, we can take one of several facelift approaches based on your needs and your skin elasticity:

  • Traditional facelift: This technique addresses the face as a whole, using incisions that range from the forehead to behind the ears.

  • Short scar (MACS) facelift: For moderate sagging in the lower and middle third of the face, this type of facelift requires smaller incisions behind the ears and up along the hairline.

  • SMAS facelift: For severe sagging in the lower two-thirds of the face, incisions are made along the side of the face from the temple to the lower hairline behind the ears.

  • Mid-face lift: Also known as a cheek lift, this less-intensive approach focuses on providing volume to lift sagging cheeks.

  • Thread lift: In a thread lift, a hollow needle creates a "feather-like" thread under the skin. The skin along the eyes, brow, and other areas is then tightened as needed.

  • Liquid facelift for wrinkles: For individuals who don’t qualify for surgery, a combination of noninvasive techniques such as dermal fillers and laser treatments are used to create a lifted appearance.

What about my results?

When researching how to get rid of wrinkles, some patients worry that their faces will look pulled or stretched out following facelift surgery. They don’t always want their friends or family to know they had "work done." At his clinic in Las Vegas, NV, Dr. Khorsandi says this shouldn’t be the case with the right plastic surgeon. The key is to find a board-certified professional with a track record of quality results. When you arrive for your initial consultation, you can ask for before-and-after photos of patients to get a sense of what to expect. Remember that the end goal is not to look like somebody else, but a younger version of yourself. The staff at VIP Plastic Surgery makes every effort to work with each patient’s skin and muscle structures for the most natural-looking outcome possible.

What about facelift cost?

Although cost is an important factor, patients cannot put a price on the personal satisfaction and self-esteem that plastic surgery can provide. We realize that cosmetic surgery is a personal decision that should be viewed as an investment in yourself. Educating yourself about the different expenses associated with facelift surgery can help you budget for the procedure and make the most of your future investment. Based on the technique used and the extent of the surgery, the price of a facelift can vary. On average, a facelift can cost $10,000 – $14,000. Facelift costs may include:

  • Anesthesia fees

  • Hospital or facility costs

  • Prescription medications

  • Post-surgery garments

  • Relevant medical tests
