A face lift, sometimes referred to as a Rhytidectomy, is used to reduce the excess skin on your face. You may be a candidate for this procedure if you have the appearance of jowls and deep creases between the base of the nose and the corners of the mouth. Other signs of needing this procedure are if you think you have a tired facial appearance, or if you believe you have developed facial and neck wrinkles. Dr. Malek believes in making you have a more youthful, natural appearance, one that would lead people to believe that you are aging beautifully, not that you have had plastic surgery. Dr. Malek is frequently considered to be one of the best providers the facelift Scottsdale & Phoenix have to offer prospective patients. For this reason, Dr. Malek is the clear choice when picking a a cosmetic surgeon.
Both men and women who wish to achieve a younger, fresher looking face can benefit from becoming Scottsdale facelift surgery patients. Face lifts can help reverse the common signs of aging such as wrinkles, creases, fine lines and sagging skin.
The face lift procedure is a group of procedures designed to readjust the skin, fatty tissue and muscles of the face to create a smoother, tighter, more youthful appearance. This procedure will improve the skin around your eyes, on your forehead, and cheeks. Liposuction may be recommended to be used in conjunction with the face lift, as needed. In addition, a neck lift procedure is often opted for to finish the overall youthful restoration in the most natural-looking way.
During your consultation Dr. Malek will evaluate your anatomical features and outline a thoughtful plan to restore natural support and contours to your cheeks, jawline and neck. He utilizes a host of surgical interventions to address different patient’s needs, always choosing the least invasive yet most effective procedure to restore a rested and youthful appearance. Some non-invasive techniques could be utilized in some patients thereby decreasing expense and down-time. You will be able to thoroughly review all options with Dr. Malek and his staff.
We require all patients who have a facelift to stay one night at the Surgery Recovery Center. You will go home with your head and neck wrapped in dressings, which are usually removed a few days after the surgery. There is minimal discomfort with this procedure which is controlled with pain medications. Aesthetically, your recovery will be longer than your discomfort. The discomfort usually lasts 2-3 days. Your surgical result is evident in 2-3 weeks with bruising and swelling disappearing by the third week.
Why Get a Facelift?
As the years pass, the skin begins to lose its natural collagen, the substance that provides elasticity and structure. Lines begin to appear around the eyes, from nose to mouth, and cheeks begin to sag. The firm, clean line of the jaw has sagging skin; the wrinkles and lines make the face appear old and tired. Many people find these signs of age to be very distressing – and for good reason. An aging face appears less vital, less alive, and in many cases, less attractive or appealing, with a negative impact on feelings of self-confidence. Dr. Malek's main goal is to help patients overcome the signs of aging. As such, he is known by his patients to be one of the top providers of the facelift Scottsdale & Phoenix have to offer.

A Facelift: The Procedure
Each person has unique facial issues, and the treatment plan must be customized. No cookie cutter approach ever achieved stunning results. The first step is a full evaluation of your facial skin, tissue, and the quality and laxity of the muscles beneath the skin layer. Some patients may require only a “mini facelift” while others may need a standard facelift. Your custom facelift will typically involve the following steps:
- The patient is put under with general anesthetic.
- The facial skin is carefully separated from the connective tissue and muscle structure beneath.
- Deep facial tissue is repositioned for a firmer contour.
- Jowls are removed to create a firmer, slimmer foundation upon which to place the facial skin.
- Excess skin is removed.
- Remaining skin is replaced over the restored facial tissue, for a smoother, fresher appearance – without excess tightness.
