About Facelift for Renewed Youthfulness

Facelift surgery, or rhytidectomy, is designed to reverse the visible signs of aging and enhance facial contours. With Dr. Torkian's expertise, a facelift tightens and lifts sagging facial tissues, smooths wrinkles, and restores a more youthful facial contour. Dr. Torkian can improve facial appearance and self-confidence by addressing excess skin and underlying muscle laxity.

Nature & Rejuvenation

Over time, the natural aging process, combined with factors such as sun exposure, gravity, and lifestyle habits, can gradually lose skin elasticity and muscle tone in the face. This can result in the formation of wrinkles, fine lines, sagging skin, and a loss of facial volume. A facelift may become necessary to address these visible signs of aging and restore a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance. Facelift surgery can address a variety of concerns, including:

  • Sagging jowls
  • Deep creases and wrinkles
  • Loose skin on the cheeks and neck
  • Loss of facial volume

About the Facelift Procedure

During a facelift, Dr. Torkian makes discreet incisions along the face's natural contours, allowing access to underlying tissues. He then lifts and repositions facial muscles and removes excess skin, creating a smoother, more youthful appearance. Depending on your unique needs, Dr. Torkian offers a range of facelift options, including traditional, vertical deep plane, mini, non-surgical, and pony lifts.

Deep Plane Vertical Facelift

The Deep Plane Vertical Facelift stands out as an intricate and innovative surgical method crafted to elevate and firm facial skin, yielding a revitalized and youthful look. Diverging from conventional facelift techniques, it targets not only surface but also underlying facial tissues, ensuring a thorough and enduring enhancement.

Mini Refresh Facelift

Diverging from the typical facelift approach, the Mini Refresh Facelift specifically targets the lower face, making it the perfect option for those noticing early signs of aging, such as subtle skin sagging, jowls, or a less defined jawline.

Scarless Pony Lift

The Scarless Pony Lift represents a state-of-the-art facial plastic surgery innovation poised to provide individuals with a transformative outcome devoid of conspicuous signs of conventional procedures. Engineered to deliver a lifted and revitalized look, it boasts virtually imperceptible scarring.

Non-Surgical Facelift

When performing non-surgical facelifts, Dr. Torkian adopts a cautious stance. He acknowledges patients' desires for enhanced appearances while recognizing the risk of overdoing BOTOX and facial fillers, which could yield undesirable results.
