Does the person you see in the mirror every day look older than you feel? Are wrinkles, loose skin, and facial folds starting to hide your personality, preventing the “real you” from showing through your face? If so, it may be time to consider a facelift. Dr. Rifai’s advanced techniques can re-contour your facial profile to provide you with a rejuvenated look that turns back the clock on your appearance.

The Ideal Facelift Candidate

Facelift surgery is not right for everyone. However, it may be the ideal option for women and men who have:

  • Neck fat and wrinkles
  • Jowls
  • Deep facial folds around the nose and mouth
  • Sagging skin in the cheeks

During a personal consultation, Dr. Rifai will examine your facial skin and structure, listening to the specific problems that frustrate you the most. If he determines you are a good facelift candidate, he will design a customized procedure to meet your unique needs.

It’s important to remember that while a facelift can rejuvenate your appearance, it cannot make you look eighteen again. There is a limit to the amount of improvement that can be achieved. However, with Dr. Rifai’s artistic eye and advanced techniques, you can restore a look that is noticeably more youthful and brings out the best in your appearance. Take a look at our Facelift Gallery to see the results we have achieved for other patients.

The Facelift Procedure

During your facelift procedure, Dr. Rifai will make a series of small incisions along your hairline, near your temples, and just above your ears. He will use these locations to reposition the underlying tissues and muscles in your face, improving their structure and position.

After this has been accomplished, a small incision in the chin area will be made so Dr. Rifai can tighten your underlying facial tissues and create a more toned look. If necessary, liposuction can be used to remove excess fat deposits in the chin and neck area.
