About Facelift

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.

How come I can only give 5 stars?! This Doctor & his incredible team deserve 5x’s  that. I am a very anxious, over thinker and it took me a long time and lots of research to find the right surgeon who’s expertise and talent aligned with my goals. From day 1 he never let me down. He was kind and compassionate yet honest and upfront. His skill level is second to none and his experience quite literally speaks for itself. He creates art, quite honestly. And he conducts himself in such an open, humble way. I didn’t even know it was possible to have the results I got from him. He not only met, he far exceeded my expectations. Thank you Dr. K & SSK Family for everything. I am forever grateful.

I couldn’t be happier with Dr. Kelishadi who recently performed my plastic surgery. Dr. Kelishadi has been an incredible surgeon, a consummate surgeon, full of integrity, knowledge, and skill, taking amazing care of me from the first consultation to the present time. Dr. Kelishadi shows that he really cares about me as a patient and as a person. He works with the patient so that his surgical work is perfectly accomplished. His video lessons for before, during and after surgery show how he believes that the patient is a partner in achieving outstanding results. The office is a well-oiled machine. All of the office staff are absolutely friendly, sweet, kind, personal, and knowledgeable. They make the patient experience feel easy, comfortable and confident. They answer all questions willingly and completely. The office is clean and beautiful. Every patient need is taken care of. The surgery center and the surgery center staff were also amazing. I can’t say enough about the positive aspects of the surgery center and the professionals who participated in the surgery. Selecting Dr. Kelishadi as my surgeon was the best decision I ever made. I am beyond happy with my results.

The Problem

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.

About Us

Procedure Techniques

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.

Which technique is best for me?

The best technique for you will vary based on your concerns, goals, level of skin laxity, which areas are being addressed, and more. Dr. Kelishadi will review the different surgical techniques during your consultation. Dr. Kelishadi can then help you decide which method is best for you.

What about wrinkle fillers and relaxers instead of facelift surgery?

Wrinkle fillers and relaxers, like JUVÉDERM and BOTOX, have become more prevalent in recent years to refresh the face. Sometimes known as a liquid facelift, injectable wrinkle treatments are suitable for early signs of aging, but the results are temporary. A facelift can produce more significant improvements than injectables, with results that can last for a long time. Feel free to ask Dr. Kelishadi about nonsurgical wrinkle treatments during your consultation.

Will my results look natural?

Some patients worry that facelift surgery will make their skin look too tight, shiny, or like they are in a wind tunnel. Dr. Kelishadi focuses on giving you a natural-looking result so you appear refreshed, not fake. He listens to your concerns and goals before developing your personal treatment plan with the technique that will produce your best results.
