People focus first on your face when meeting you. Your face shows your emotions, your personality, and your approximate age. While the eyes and the smile often provide the most-pleasing emphasis, all features join forces to create a favorable or unfavorable first impression. A face that is clear, smooth, and shiny through great skin care reflects light and is appealing. In fact, babies are much more responsive to youthful, round, smooth, glowing faces than to aged faces that are lined and dull-toned. To significantly reduce wrinkles and improve your facial profile, board-certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Sean Kelishadi, performs facelift surgery at SSK Plastic Surgery in Newport Beach, CA.
"Dr. Kelishadi is amazing!!! He made me feel so comfortable! I had Breast Augmentation May 26th. I'm three months out and loving my results! I was very self conscious about my chest. My breasts shrunk due to breast feeding. I didn't even want to change in front of my husband. (he loved them no matter what lol) and now I am feeling so great about it! He said he's even noticed a boost in my confidence level. I love it! i feel good..i feel sexy. I never thought I would actually go through with getting this done, but Dr. Kelishadi and his staff helped me with every step of the way. He was very caring and checked up on me after surgery. His staff was very nice as well. All so helpful! I highly recommend him!"- J.V. / Yelp / Jul 27, 2017
"The best of the best... I wish there were more stars to add to his review, but if the five stars describe the best, then that would be Dr. Kelishadi. I have no words to describe the amazing job he's doing with every case. He is very patient, meticulous and never gives up until the smallest detail is taken care of. Thank you Dr Kelishadi for everything"- S.A. / Yelp / Apr 19, 2018
"There are not words to truly express how much I admire and trust Dr. Kelishadi. He is,without a doubt one in a million. He is compassionate, honest, professional and a perfectionist in his profession.. Last year I was diagnosed with breast cancer and with the help of my oncologist surgeon ( Dr. Kachikwu ) and Dr. Kelishadi I made the decision to have a mastectomy surgery and reconstruction surgery on the same day. The surgery went well, the tumor was entirely removed and I didn't need chemo or radiation. Dr. Kelishadi helped me to overcome the fear of having a mastectomy. He promised me he was going to treat me like he would a family member and he really did. I had a fast recovery and went back to work 6 weeks after my surgery. I feel blessed that god gave a second chance and the opportunity to met Dr.Kelishadi during my cancer journey. The results of my new breast are amazing! They are so natural looking that I don't even think of cancer anymore. I wish breast cancer on no one yet should you find yourself in need of a plastic surgeon, I pray that you will be able to see Dr. Kelishadi, he is amazing! And, his staff is very friendly and professional too. :)"- V.F. / Yelp / Apr 17, 2018

"For anyone that is looking to do something for themselves, no matter what the reason is, I would recommend SSK Plastic Surgery to anyone and everyone. I have been waiting to have cosmetic surgery for 5 years after having my 3rd child, and went to multiple offices and spoke to 4 other surgeons prior to meeting Dr. Kelishadi. Once I met with him, I felt comfortable and trusted him with my procedure. Dr. Kelishadi was thorough, knowledgable and patiently answered all of my questions. I had a tummy tuck, breast lift and augmentation, and liposuction of the back and love handle areas with a fat transfer into my butt/hips. It was a 7.5 hour procedure that ended up being a little over 8 hours. His staff was extremely helpful with all of the paperwork and financing leading up to the day of surgery, and the hospital staff that Dr. K is contracted with was warm and caring. I was nervous about the procedure and my recovery, and Dr. Kelishadi personally made phone calls (even on Christmas Day because my surgery was just a few days before) to check in with me. I was able to reach him directly with any questions or concerns- the care and level of service far exceeds any I have ever had in the medical field.I am now a little over 3 months post-op and I feel amazing and am so happy with my results. SSK made this experience as easy as it could possibly be."- K.M. / Yelp / Mar 24, 2018
Aging is complex. Early to normal aging often shows first in the face, especially if hastened by a poor diet, insufficient rest, excessive sun exposure, smoking, frequent downward-pulling expressions, and other unhealthful habits. Even in this super health-conscious age, some people have more protective genetics than others. Aging--including declining levels of elastin and collagen proteins in tissues, which may start as early as the thirties--can show in any of the following signs:
- dark circles and shadows, bags, puffiness, or excessive lines under or around eyes
- excessively fatty, puffy, or sagging eyelids (hooding)
- frown lines or furrows between eyes and eyebrows and on the forehead
- a loss of support and volume, which leads to sagging and wrinkles
- failing definition and volume in the cheeks
- jowls downward from the corners of the mouth (marionette lines)
- failing definition in the jawline.
Smoking adversely affects the skin overall, especially in pursed lines around the mouth. Skin tone and texture of the face and the neck need to be tightened and smoothed. These problems should be corrected surgically. While injectables and fillers are useful tools in non-surgical facelifts in Yorba Linda and Fullerton, they are not always sufficient to restore anatomy to its youthful state.
In patients suffering from aging, the loss of elastin and collagen may require our multi-modality approach with facelift to restore volume (via lifting the underlying tissue to create more cheek volume and with potentially adding fat grafting or fillers), re-draping of the stretched skin and underlying tissue, and removal of excess skin. Facial rejuvenation with your Orange County plastic surgeon is a worthwhile goal.
Plan Your Procedure
We have different procedures and techniques of facelifts to match your lower or higher levels of need to repair damage for an improved, natural appearance. In some modern surgical face lift techniques, the deeper layers of facial tissue are re-suspended, age-related sagging is corrected, and a more-youthful shape is restored.
Liposuction and the transfer of fat to an insufficient area may be included. The advantages are an average downtime of only 1 to 2 weeks and a natural look. Our gentle tissue handling and meticulous technique are a few ways we make every effort to reduce post-treatment inflammation and bruising to please your short-term goals. Our expertise in facial anatomy and our efforts to understand the progression of your personal journey of facial aging (we will look together at photos of you during different stages of your life) are what set us apart in exceeding your long-term expectations with lasting results. Mini-lifts can make an appreciable difference; however, time has proven much-greater, long-term results from an investment in a full facelift.
You likely may need a complete rhytidectomy, facelift, neck lift, eyelid surgery, lip lift, and/or a brow lift simultaneously. In addition, chin, cheek, and lip enhancements are advantageous options for men and women. These procedures balance the proportions among facial features and contours, including jaw and cheekbones, to achieve a more-attractive face. With you and your facelift we will decide which strategy would work for you to add strength or volume. Not only can we use implants to augment lost volume in the face; we also have biologic fillers (such as your own fat) and synthetic fillers (temporary or permanent).
Facial rejuvenation with surgery or a nonsurgical adjunct can be worked into nearly any busy schedule. Nonsurgical options include Botox Cosmetic and Dysport, or dermal fillers and other volume-enhancing products such as Restylane, Juvéderm, Perlane, Radiesse, and Sculptra.
