Brow lift is designed to correct the following imperfections in the brow and forehead:
- A low, sagging, or asymmetrical brow line

How Is a Brow Lift Performed?
Brow lift surgery is performed with incisions that are positioned to provide Dr. Mozaffari with access to areas that need to be tightened. He describes incision placement during the consultation. In some cases of early aging, a brow lift with Botox® may be adequate to reduce wrinkles in the forehead area, although this will not help with a sagging brow.
What Can I Expect During Recovery from my Brow Lift?
You may need to stay home for a few days after your forehead lift surgery. Expect to have swelling, bruising, and discomfort. Healing can take several weeks or longer.
What Results Can I Expect from a Forehead Lift?
You can see the results of the procedure in our brow lift before and after pictures. the upper portion of the face looks revitalized, and the eyes have a more open appearance, although the surgery does not change the upper eyelids. You can have the most dramatic results by combining your brow lift with eyelid surgery.
Can a Brow Lift Be Combined with Other Procedures?
A brow lift can be combined with additional facial procedures to target other areas of the face. For example, if the mid-face region sags or creases, or the lower face has developed jowls and an inelegant contour, brow lift may be combined with facelift and/or neck lift, depending on the specific concerns. Combining procedures provides all-over rejuvenation for a more beautiful face.
What Is the Belladerma Mini Facelift™?
San Diego's premier surgeon, Dr. Moz personally developed the Belladerma Mini Facelift™ procedure to restore youthful facial contours with minimal trauma and downtime. Dr. Moz performs The Belladerma Mini Facelift™ to restore skin laxity in the face, cheek, and neck areas.
This procedure is ideal for patients under the age of 50 with moderate skin laxity The Belladerma Mini Facelift™ is also an option for patients that had previous facelift surgery and desire a “tune-up,” often using –and even improving – the original scars. You can see the results in our facelift surgery before and after pictures.

The average cost of our exclusive Belladerma Mini Facelift™ starts at $9,600. As part of your consultation, we explain the costs associated with your personalized treatment and skin care plan. Multiple financing options are available, and you can apply before your consultation.
What Is a Mini Face Lift?
You may be familiar with a traditional facelift that rejuvenates the entire face. Plastic surgeons developed the mini face lift procedure to provide men and women with a less extensive, yet highly effective, alternative to a full facelift.
What Happens During the Belladerma Mini Facelift™ Surgery?
Excess skin is removed and the facial tissues are lifted into a more desirable position and supported with deep sutures in the muscle fascia for longer lasting benefits than simple “skin lifts.” The Belladerma Mini Facelift™ frequently incorporates neck lift techniques to improve the appearance of loose skin, excess fat deposits, and horizontal wrinkles underneath the chin and on the neck.
What Results Can I Expect from My Belladerma Mini Facelift™?
The lower face looks younger once the wrinkles and sagging are corrected.
What Can I Expect During Recovery from My Belladerma Mini Facelift™?
You may have some downtime after your Belladerma Mini Facelift™, but it is minimal compared to a full facelift.
Can the Belladerma Mini Facelift™ Be Combined with Other Procedures?
To enhance the results of the Belladerma Mini Facelift™, Dr. Mozaffari can combine another surgical or non-surgical treatment to deliver optimal age-defying, skin-smoothing results. For example, the FX carbon dioxide resurfacing laser is often used to complement the results of facelift surgery (instead of a chemical peel or dermabrasion) by reducing wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and other pigmentary skin damage. Dr. Mozaffari compares laser resurfacing to “ironing and cleaning your dress after it has been tailored to fit better.”
What Is Blepharoplasty Surgery?
Blepharoplasty surgery removes small amounts of sagging skin and fat from the upper and/or lower eyelids. The procedure is recommended for men and women who have a tired appearance that stems from eyelids that hang low over the upper part of the eye or lower eyelids that hang downward. Dr. Mazoffari may recommend ptosis repair as part of your eyelid surgery.
How Much Does Blepharoplasty Cost in San Diego, CA?
The average cost of blepharoplasty surgery at Belladerma Cosmetic Surgery & Skin Care Center starts at $2,500. As part of your consultation, we explain the costs associated with your personalized treatment and skin care plan. Financing is available through CareCredit®, and you can apply before your consultation.
How Is Blepharoplasty Performed?
During surgery, excess skin and fat are removed from the upper and/or lower eyelids. In upper blepharoplasty surgery, fat can be redistributed, and the muscles can be altered as needed to tighten the lids and restore a clear line of sight. In lower blepharoplasty surgery, under-eye bags are reduced and fine wrinkles around the eyelids are smoothed.
The surgical modifications are performed though tiny incisions in the natural creases of the upper lid and underneath the lower lash line to avoid visible scarring. The transconjunctival blepharoplasty technique involves removing fat from the lower lids only through an incision made in the lower lash line, avoiding a skin incision.
Can Blepharoplasty Be Combined with Other Procedures?
If the patient has expressed additional age-related concerns in other areas of the face, Dr. Mozaffari might recommend combining eyelid surgery with another facial rejuvenation procedure. For example, if the patient is bothered by saggy skin along the jawline and on the neck, Dr. Mozaffari may recommend a combination eyelid lift with a neck lift. Or, if the mid-face region is problematic, a facelift can help.
Non-surgical treatment options such as laser skin resurfacing, Botox® treatment, and injectable fillers are also a great way to complement the results of eyelid surgery and improve the appearance of the skin.
What Can I Expect During Recovery from Blepharoplasty?
Dr. Mozaffari plays an active role in his patients’ recovery. He provides a list of detailed instructions for patients to follow post-operatively. Most patients will need to take one to two weeks off from work and other normal activities. Swelling, bruising, and discomfort are normal during the first few days of recovery. Dr. Mozaffari may prescribe oral pain medication to control mild discomfort.
Patients should plan on having a reliable family member or friend drive them home immediately after surgery and stay with them for the first few days of recovery. Some patients find it beneficial to enlist an aftercare provider who is professionally trained to take care of plastic surgery patients. Please visit our Patient Aftercare in La Jolla page to find out if you can benefit from this service.
Are the Results of My Blepharoplasty Permanent?
The results of eyelid surgery are considered to be permanent. However, the natural aging process and other factors can alter the appearance of results in the future. The best way to prolong the rejuvenating effects of eyelid surgery is to practice good skin care habits, including proper sun protection, not smoking, and using medical-grade skin care products. Non-surgical cosmetic treatments, including Botox®, dermal fillers, and laser skin resurfacing, are available to maintain results after surgery.
Am I a Good Candidate for Blepharoplasty?
Eyelid surgery is customized based on the individual patient’s particular areas of concern. These concerns could include any of the following:
- Extra, loose, or wrinkled upper or lower eyelid skin
- Excess fat on the upper or lower eyelids
- Loose skin on the upper lids that sags into the line of sight and inhibits vision
- Puffiness on the upper or lower eyelids
- Droopy eyelids
What Is Buccal Fat Removal?
Buccal fat removal is recommended for men and women who have “baby cheeks” that distract the eye from other facial features. The buccal fat pad can be safely reduced to create highlights and shadows in the cheek area. You can see how the procedure works in our buccal fat removal before and after pictures.
How Much Does Buccal Fat Removal Cost?
The average cost of buccal fat pad removal at Belladerma Cosmetic Surgery & Skin Care Center starts at $4,300. As part of your consultation, we explain the costs associated with your personalized treatment and skin care plan. Multiple financing options are available, and you can apply before your consultation.
How Is Buccal Fat Pad Removal Performed?
Buccal fat pad removal is performed by making incisions inside the mouth in the cheek. This gives Dr. Mozaffari access to the fat pad. He carefully removes small amounts of fat to sculpt and shape the cheeks.
What Should I Expect from Buccal Fat Removal Recovery?
You will need to keep the incision clean as it heals, and we will provide detailed aftercare instructions at the conclusion of your recovery in our practice. The cheeks may feel tight from swelling. You may have some tenderness and bruising for a few days.
What Is Earlobe Repair?
Earlobe repair is a cosmetic surgery that corrects abnormalities with the earlobes that are caused by injury or stretching due to jewelry and gauging. The earlobe is modified to create a more natural shape and size.
How Much Does Earlobe Repair Cost?
The average cost of earlobe repair at Belladerma Cosmetic Surgery & Skin Care Center starts at $400. As part of your consultation, we explain the costs associated with your personalized treatment and skin care plan. Multiple financing options are available, and you can apply before your consultation.
How Is Earlobe Repair Performed?
The technique that is used for your earlobe repair depends on the type of damage to the tissues. If you have a torn earlobe, Dr. Mozaffari attaches the two sides together. For stretched or gauged earlobes, He removes excess tissue and closes the tissues. Your earlobes may not be the same size and shape as before the injury, but the lobes will have a natural contour and size that blends with your ears.
What Is Recovery Like After Earlobe Repair?
You will need to protect the lobes from any injury during the healing process. No downtime is needed, but you may have swelling, discomfort and tenderness. You will not be able to wear jewelry until the lobe is healed.
What Is a Facelift Procedure?
Facelift surgery addresses sagging, folds, creases, wrinkles, and displaced fat that occurs as part of the aging process. This is typically reserved for advanced signs of aging when other treatments do not produce the desired results. There are several different types of face lifts and Dr. Moz has expertise in peforming all of them.
What is a Deep Plane Facelift?
The term Deep Plane describes the anatomic plane between muscles of facial expression and the muscle and facia complex called SMAS-platysma. As the name suggests, this facelift is done by influencing the movement of the deeper layers of fat and muscle tissue and less on pulling the skin. Releasing ligaments helps to keep the muscle movement free of tension and keeps the skin from tightening that is present with traditional facelifts. Traditionally the skin of the face would be pulled more horizontally to flatten out the wrinkles. This impacted the corners of the mouth and the eyes as they were pulled and the face and the cheek looked flat. However, with deep plane facelift, the patient will have a more natural look with smooth features. This is accomplished as angles of the lift are changed to be more vertical for maximum rejuvination. The vertical facelift angles will differ with age and Dr. Moz adjusts that angle to make sure the patient gets the most optimum result.
How Much Does a Facelift Cost in San Diego, CA?
The average cost of facelift surgery at Belladerma Cosmetic Surgery & Skin Care Center starts at $12,000. As part of your consultation, we explain the costs associated with your personalized treatment and skin care plan. Multiple financing options are available, and you can apply before your consultation.
What Is a Mini Face Lift?
Dr. Mozaffari introduces many of his patients to the mini face lift procedure. This surgery corrects signs of aging in the lower and mid-face, and it is ideal for patients who do not have advanced signs of aging in the upper area of the face.
How Is a Facelift Performed?
Incisions are made along the hairline and around the ear. The tissue is pulled taut over the face to create a younger and natural appearance. Dr. Mozaffari may opt to tighten facial muscles and reposition fat during the procedure.
What Can I Expect During Recovery from My Facelift?
The initial recovery period for facelift typically takes two to three weeks. Initial symptoms should subside within two weeks after surgery, while minor swelling and bruising may last a bit longer but can easily be concealed with makeup. A simple Belladerma Mini Facelift™ creates less swelling and bruising.
Most patients return to work and resume normal activities one to three weeks after surgery. Patients can typically resume (or start) light exercise two weeks after surgery depending on their healing, the degree of surgery, and their job requirements. We will provide a more accurate timeline of when you can resume normal activities and exercise during your initial consultation. We may also make modifications during your recovery based on your healing process.
Are the Results of My Facelift Permanent?
When performed by a talented and skilled facelift surgeon (and with proper maintenance), the results of any facelift can last for many years. Although it can turn back the hands of time, it is does not stop the aging process. Good skin care (e.g., using the right skin care products, moisturizing regularly) and lifestyle habits (e.g., wearing sunscreen, not smoking) can help prolong your facelift results.
Drs. Bucko and Mozaffari also recommend maintaining your results with injectable (e.g., Botox®, dermal fillers) or professional skin care (e.g., photorejuvenation) treatments regularly. See the results in our facelift surgery before and after pictures.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Facelift?
Facelift candidates are usually concerned about one or more of the following:
- Loose, sagging skin in the face, cheek, brow, neck, and jowl area
- Puffy eyelids
- Creases along the lower eyelids
- Creases along the nose to the corners of the mouth
- Displaced or fallen fat
- Loss of healthy skin tone
- Excess fat deposits underneath the chin and jawline
- Cords or bands on the neck
Based on their analysis of the patient, Dr. Mozaffari drafts a plan of treatment that will outline various options with specific results in mind. This could be traditional facelift surgery, or a Belladerma Mini Facelift™, a less-invasive alternative to the standard facelift techniques.
Can a Facelift Be Performed with Other Procedures?
A browlift or forehead lift may also be done at the same time to rejuvenate the upper face and eyelids. Earlobe reduction may be performed on its own or during facelift surgery to repair oversized, elongated, or droopy earlobes that may give subtle clues to the aging process. Redundant skin and tissue is removed to create a shorter, smaller lobe. Some patients will even include minor nasal surgery to lift a droopy tip, or a chin implant to create a stronger profile.
Why Choose Dr. Mozaffari?
Experience matters. We have performed hundreds of procedures in his years of practice is a better choice than a plastic surgeon fresh out of residency. Dr. Mozaffari is actively involved in the plastic surgery community as a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. He stays up-to-date with the latest facelift techniques and technology to enhance patient outcomes, and with 16 years of expirience every patient will be in the best care with Dr. Mozaffari.
At what age should you get a facelift?
Knowing when to get a facelift isn’t so much based on your chronological age, but, rather, the aged appearance of your skin. In general, people may want to consider a facelift from their 40s to their 60s. Signs of aging that may indicate it’s time for a facelift are deep wrinkles and creases, as well as moderate to severe sagging. Facelift surgery is typically recommended when non-surgical options no longer provide the desired degree of correction. You should also be aware that facelift surgery may not help with more superficial signs of aging, such as dark spots. In these cases, Dr. Mozaffari recommends other treatments be performed in conjunction with a facelift.
How much younger will I look after a facelift?
Facelift surgery produces dramatic results, and patients report that they look 10 to 15 years younger. On average, patients can expect to take about 12 years off their appearances with facelift surgery.
How long does it take to look normal after a facelift?
Most of the swelling and bruising subsides after four weeks. Full results take up to six months.
What Is Facial Implants Surgery?
Facial implants surgery uses silicone implants to add fullness to specific areas of the face. Facial implants for symmetry balance your features to create an attractive harmony. Cheek and chin implants are the most common types of procedures, although Dr. Mozaffari may recommend other types of facial implants. You can see the results in our cheek and chin implants before and after pictures.
How Much Does Facial Implants Surgery Cost?
The average cost of facial implants at Belladerma Cosmetic Surgery & Skin Care Center starts at $5,000. As part of your consultation, we explain the costs associated with your personalized treatment and skin care plan. Financing is available through CareCredit®, and you can apply before your consultation.
How Is Facial Implants Surgery Performed?
Facial implants require very small incisions, and the incisions may be made inside the mouth to hide the scars. Other incision locations are under the chin for chin implants and in the lower eyelid area for cheek implants. Dr. Mozaffari inserts the implant through the incision and positions it to the desired location.
What Is Recovery Like After Facial Implants Surgery?
Expect swelling, bruising, and some mild discomfort after your facial implants surgery. The area will also feel slightly tight until the skin stretches to accommodate the implant.
What Is Lip Augmentation?
Lip augmentation is designed for patients that have always had thin lips and patients whose lips have thinned due to the natural aging process. The lips may be asymmetrical or uneven. Lip augmentation adds plumpness and definition for a fuller smile. Treatment may improve the shape of the mouth.
Augmenting the lips can also help minimize an excessively “gummy” smile (meaning too much of the gums show); with fuller lips, the gums display less prominently. Either subtle or dramatic results can be achieved, depending on the specific patient’s goals. Lip augmentation can also reduce the appearance of fine lip lines.
What Is Lip Lift?
A lip lift is a surgical procedure that enhances the amount of pink tissue visible and therefore makes the lips look fuller and more pronounced. This is achieved by shortening the distance between the nose and the top of the lip.
How Much Does Lip Augmentation Cost in San Diego, CA?
The average cost of lip augmentation surgery at Belladerma Cosmetic Surgery & Skin Care Center starts at $700. As part of your consultation, we explain the costs associated with your personalized treatment and skin care plan. Multiple financing options are available, and you can apply before your consultation.
How Can I Augment My Lips with Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers like Restylane®, Juvéderm®, Voluma® are a minimally invasive way to temporarily augment the lips. Fillers composed of biocompatible materials are injected into the lips to add volume and shape. The injections are quick, convenient and not painful. The results last several months. Treatment may be repeated periodically to maintain the results.
How Can I Augment My Lips with Fat Grafting?
Another minimally invasive lip augmentation surgery is through a technique called “dermal fat graft.” Excess fat and skin is extracted from an area of the body and grafted into the lips to enhance their shape and fullness. Since the patient’s own fat is used, there is very little chance of an adverse reaction.
One drawback is that the body can naturally absorb some of the fat. In anticipation of this, the lips may be slightly over-corrected during the initial procedure, or a secondary procedure may need to be performed several months later to achieve the desired correction. The results are generally long-lasting.
What Results Can I Expect from Lip Augmentation?
As an expert in lip augmentation, Dr. Mozaffari is able to produce impressive, natural results. Your lips will be slightly swollen for up to one week, and you may have some tightness.
Am I a Good Candidate for Lip Augmentation?
Lip augmentation is ideal for men and women who want to add volume to their lips while maintaining a natural appearance. The procedure may help with fine lines around the mouth.
What Is a Neck Lift?
The neck lift procedure rejuvenates the neck to correct sagging, banding, and crinkly crepe-paper skin that gives you an aged appearance. Many men and women overlook the effects of an older neck area, yet this is often the area that makes you look older.
How Much Does a Neck Lift Cost in San Diego, CA?
The average cost of neck lift surgery at Belladerma Cosmetic Surgery & Skin Care Center starts at $6,500. As part of your consultation, we explain the costs associated with your personalized treatment and skin care plan. Multiple financing options are available, and you can apply before your consultation.
How Is a Neck Lift Performed?
The procedural steps of a standard neck lift procedure vary, according to the patient’s specific needs. Typically, sagging fat is redistributed from the jowls back up to the cheek area to create a more attractive contour along the jawline. Excess skin is removed from the neck and the remaining skin is re-draped more tightly. The platysma muscles may be released, repositioned, and tightened to eliminate vertical muscle cords or banding.
Any excess fat on the neck can be liposuctioned away. The surgery is performed through an incision around the ear, and possibly an additional incision underneath the chin. Neck lift incisions are placed to hide the resulting scars.
What Can I Expect During Recovery from My Neck Lift?
During recovery from a neck lift, the area will feel tight, and you may notice some tingling. These symptoms are a normal part of the healing. Swelling and bruising may occur. Recovery from combined neck lift and facelift may require more downtime.
What Results Can I Expect from My Neck Lift?
You can see the results in our neck lift surgery before and after pictures. The neck area looks smoother and has a supple texture.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Neck Lift?
Generally, neck lift is a suitable option for individuals that are bothered by:
- Loose, saggy neck skin
- Relaxation of excess fat and skin in the lower face that creates jowls
- Vertical lines or muscle banding on the neck
- Excess fatty deposits underneath the chin that give the appearance of a “double chin”
- Wrinkled neck skin
Dr. Mozaffari evaluates neck lift candidates on an individual basis to ascertain their needs and determine whether the procedure is a suitable option. He explains the procedure in greater detail, including what it typically accomplishes. Dr. Mozaffari provides all the information a patient needs to make important decisions about their care.
Does a neck lift get rid of jowls?
Yes, Dr. Mozaffari can tailor the necklift surgical plan to target jowls and sagging along the jawline. The surgery may also be recommended for a double chin.
Where are the scars after a neck lift?
The most common incision placement for neck lift surgery is under the chin. In some cases, Dr. Mozaffari also uses incisions behind the ears. Necklift incisions are very small, so the resulting scars are well-hidden and difficult to notice.
What are the benefits of having a neck lift and facelift?
Having a necklift and facelift at the same time is an excellent way to dramatically improve your entire appearance. The neck tends to show the earliest signs of aging, so it is beneficial to rejuvenate this area while you are having a facelift.
What Is Otoplasty?
Otoplasty encompasses reconstructive and cosmetic surgeries of the ears. At Belladerma Cosmetic Surgery & Skin Care Center, we offer cosmetic ear surgery for men and women. We do not perform ear tube surgery or other procedures to improve hearing or correct abnormalities inside the ears.

What Is Rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty surgery, or nose reshaping surgery, has the potential to improve the overall appearance of the face, when performed correctly. Even the subtlest tweaks can improve facial harmony and balance. Many patients also have breathing problems that can be addressed. You can see the results in our rhinoplasty before and after pictures.
How Much Does Rhinoplasty Cost in San Diego, CA?

As part of your consultation, we explain the costs associated with your personalized treatment and skin care plan.

How Is Rhinoplasty Surgery Performed?
To alter the size of the nose, Dr. Mozaffari can either remove cartilage or use a cartilage graft from another area of the face (e.g., septum) or body. He makes other improvements as needed to alter the shape and features of the nose. A bump may be smoothed, or the nostrils can be refined so they look more symmetrical or proportional.
Depending on the specific patient, Dr. Mozaffari may limit the incisions inside the nostrils, or add an extra incision across the small strip of skin separating the nostrils (called the columella), which leaves a barely noticeable scar.
What Can I Expect During Recovery from Rhinoplasty?
Your nose will be filled with a substance to hold the tissues in place. A splint is used on the outside of the nose. Bruising, swelling, and discomfort are common after rhinoplasty surgery.
What Results Can I Expect from My Rhinoplasty?
The nose may take several weeks to heal. Once the swelling goes down, your nose is better proportioned with your facial features.
Am I a Good Candidate for Rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty is typically performed to address one or more of the following:
- A wide nasal bridge
- Visible hump or dip on the bridge
- Nasal tip that is bulbous, drooping, upturned or hooked
- Large or wide nostrils
- Crooked or asymmetrical nose
- Deviated septum
- Enlarged turbinates and airway problems
