The facelift has long been considered the “gold standard” of facial rejuvenation. No other cosmetic procedure can compare to its profound rejuvenating effect. Improving skin laxity, reducing facial wrinkles, smoothing out deep lines, and restoring youthful facial contours are just a few most notable benefits of a facelift. However, looking years younger does not have to mean looking entirely different. There are various techniques in facelift surgery. You may hear buzzwords about a specific procedure that takes away years and makes you look 10 years younger with minimal surgery and minimal recovery. We strive to offer you the best minimally invasive procedures with short recovery and maximum results. However, you should know that many studies and clinical experience has proven to us that facelifts are very individualized procedures.
There is not one single recipe or miracle procedure that can address all the goals in correcting an aging face. During your consultation in our Orange County, California office, Dr. Bolourian will perform a complete facial and neck evaluation and discusses your specific goals and concerns.

What Areas Can Be Improved with a face lift?
As with any other cosmetic procedure, evaluation for a facelift starts with Dr. Bolourian’s thorough analysis of a patient’s facial features, skin texture and elasticity, the amount and distribution of excess of fat, and the degree of facial aging. Photographs are taken and reviewed to establish and prioritize the goals of facial rejuvenation procedures.
The specific areas targeted by a facelift may vary from patient to patient, so for each case, Dr. Bolourian develops a highly individualized surgical plan. Some of the most common facial areas for improving and rejuvenating the face are:
- Visible muscle bands in the neck called platysma bands
- Neck skin laxity (addressed through a neck lift)
- Excessive fullness under the chin
- Noticeable jowls
- Sagging of facial tissue
Once Dr. Bolourian performs a complete facial analysis and determines the areas where most improvement is needed, he can select a proper facelift technique. He can also make recommendations about other procedures which may include upper facial treatments such as browlift and eyelid surgery.
