What Is a Facelift?
A facelift is one of the most popular procedures at Southern California Center for Surgical Arts. With this surgical procedure, Dr. Husam Elias operates on specific regions of the face to treat loose skin and wrinkles. According to your individualized concerns, a facelift can treat the eyes, the mid-face (such as the cheeks), and the bottom portion of the face, including the mouth, jowls, and neck, and more for a more youthful appearance overall. The facelift method chosen will depend on your aesthetic goals as well as your age, lifestyle, and the health of your skin. For some people, a full facelift is needed, while others may only want to have a mid-facelift. Contact our office in Los Angeles, CA to set up an appointment to discuss the facelift procedure in more detail.
What happens during a facelift?
Most people who are interested in a facelift procedure are dealing with lines and wrinkles in the middle and lower parts of the face. With several facelift methods to choose from, our team will help you decide on the best one for you. The method chosen may vary for those in their 40s or 50s will versus those in their 60s or 70s. Facelift candidates need to be physically healthy, avoid smoking, and have realistic expectations about results. Options for facelifts include the following:
- Full Facelift
A common surgery for older adults, the full facelift generally puts an incision along the hairline, then extends down to the temple region, stopping near the base of the ears. The deeper layer of facial tissues and muscles are carefully pulled and safely tightened to create a lifted appearance, which softens excessive lines and wrinkles. This facelift is used for those who have signs of aggressive aging. With this lift, many procedures may be used, including an eyelid lift or a neck lift.
Incorporating a similar technique to the mini lift, the mid-facelift (cheeks) focuses on the sagging close to the cheekbones and the upper jaw. This lift works nicely for those who hope to improve the lower portion of the face, including the jowls.
- Lower Facelift
This lift addresses the chin area and neck, and in many cases, the jowls. Nonsurgical methods, such as KYBELLA or laser skin tightening, can also be used for chin augmentation to attain a younger, tighter-looking neck.
- Mini Facelift
During a mini facelift, a thin, small incision is placed around the ears to lift the skin, which affects the mouth and jawline. This process produces subtle, natural-looking enhancements.
Following your procedure, you will be monitored by our team before you are released to go home. The recovery process will entail bruising, swelling, possible drainage, slight to moderate pain, and soreness. Pain medication will be provided along with home-based care instructions for recovery. After a few weeks, you should look and feel like yourself again.
Southern California Center for Surgical Arts Reviews
I took my daughter in for a consult regarding getting her wisdom teeth removed. Everyone was very nice and explained everything in detail. Dr. Pouya is very nice and explained the whole process to us from beginning to end. They were nice enough to schedule her surgery the following week since I wanted her to recover before she went back to school. I am very pleased with the whole office and how well the surgery went. I will definitely recommend Dr. Pouya to anyone needed their wisdom teeth removed.

Fantastic experience start to finish. I had Asian Rhinoplasty by Dr Elias and can not be happier. I love my nose so much, I get compliments from my friends about how cute and how it fits my face well.
I had Silicone breast implants by Dr Elias, I went from flat to fab in under an hour, I love my new addition:)I came to Dr Elias as referral from a friend of mine who had hers done by him a few years ago and they still looked fantastic, so I decided to follow him on IG to see his work, it didn’t take long before I booked a consultation with him. He was thorough, knowledgeable and reasonably priced compared to other places I consulted with in the past. I’m extremely happy with my results, post op care was great, he saw me so many times to check the healing of my surgery. I can’t say enough about my results. I love ’em..
My experience with this office was absolutely stellar. Firstly, the staff welcomes you warmly when you arrive. Diana (doctor’s assistant) met me in the exam room. Diana has a way of instantly making you feel comfortable and any nervousness you may be feeling is dissipated.... Because you can’t stop laughing. Then enters Dr. Elias.... He is extremely approachable, honest, and knowledgeable. It doesn’t hurt that he has multiple degrees. I am ecstatic that I found this business:
