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 A Blepharoplasty Cost?
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 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. The plastic surgeons at Belladerma Cosmetic Surgery & Skin Care Center have been in practice for more than 35 years. 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.
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 Gynecomastia?
Gynecomastia is a medical condition that causes enlarged breasts in men. Although large male breasts are often considered a sign of being out of shape, the condition can cause "man boobs" in even the most toned men. The origins of gynecomastia go back to puberty and even earlier in development. Some male babies have breast buds, but these are expected to disappear as the boy reaches puberty. For some men, though, the breast buds are persistent into adulthood. Gynecomastia surgery, known as male breast reduction, removes the excess tissue.
How Mych Does Gynecomastia Surgery Cost?
The average cost of gynecomastia surgery at Belladerma Cosmetic Surgery & Skin Care Center starts at $6,000. 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.
How Is Gynecomastia Surgery Performed?
Gynecomastia is a specialized type of breast reduction that should only be performed by a plastic surgeon who understands how to maintain a masculine shape to the breasts and chest area while addressing the enlarged breasts. Dr. Mozaffari has performed hundreds of male breast reduction procedures with excellent results. He may recommend surgical removal of the breast tissue or liposuction if you have mild breast enlargement.
What Is Recovery Like After Gynecomastia Surgery?
In many cases, downtime is not required after gynecomastia surgery. You may need to wear a compression garment to reduce swelling and hold the tissues in place. You can see the results of male breast reduction surgery in our gynecomastia before and after surgery pictures.
