Reduce the Appearance of Fine Lines and Wrinkles with Facelift Surgery

By: Dr. Christopher Khorsandi


While there are many nonsurgical and minimally invasive facial rejuvenation procedures available today, the surgical facelift remains the “gold standard” when it comes to virtually turning back the clock and restoring a more youthful look overall. At VIP Plastic Surgery in Las Vegas, NV, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Christopher Khorsandi performs a full range of facelift techniques using the most current and effective tools and technologies available today to help patients achieve a strikingly natural and beautiful new look they can feel confident about. If your lines, wrinkles, loose skin, and other classic signs of aging are starting to make you feel less than happy with your appearance, you may be ready for a facelift.

How does a facelift work?

Because there are several types of facelifts available, as well as the fact that every facelift is further customized to help meet the unique needs and goals of the individual patient, the details of each procedure will vary from case to case. Generally speaking; however, facelift surgery involves making a series of strategic incisions — like behind the ear, beneath the chin, or within the hairline — and using advanced techniques to reposition the muscles, resculpt the features, trim excess skin, and create a smoother and more youthful-looking overall facial contour.

Which type of facelift do I need for lines and wrinkles?

Most patients who undergo facelift surgery have some amount of facial lines and wrinkles they are hoping to smooth out, and the majority of facelift techniques do involve alterations that help to diminish the appearance of lines, wrinkles, and facial folds. To better understand which kind of facelift is most appropriate for you, Dr. Khorsandi will carefully assess your facial anatomy, evaluate your skin laxity and the extent of your lines and wrinkles, discuss your available options, and help you choose the facial enhancement surgery that is best suited to your particular signs of facial aging. Some of the most common facial rejuvenation surgeries and facelift approaches used to address various types of lines and wrinkles include:

  • Full facelift
  • Mid-facelift
  • Short scar facelift
  • SMAS facelift
  • Brow lift
  • Eyelid lift (blepharoplasty)
  • Neck lift

Is there a way to smooth out facial lines and wrinkles without surgery?

For patients interested in a nonsurgical facelift solution, Dr. Khorsandi may recommend the minimally invasive thread lift or a liquid facelift using injectable dermal fillers and wrinkle relaxers. While nonsurgical facial rejuvenation options can certainly provide striking results and remove the need for general anesthesia, a lengthy recovery time, incisions, and some of the other requirements of facelift surgery, patients can achieve more complete and longer-lasting enhancements by choosing a surgical facelift. Still, Dr. Khorsandi understands that some patients may not be ready, willing, or able to go under the knife, and he will take ample time to explore all available options that can help you achieve your goals while aligning with your individual preferences.
