Age certainly shows in the face, and years of unhealthy habits such as poor dieting, smoking, and sun exposure can certainly contribute to unwanted facial wrinkles and sagging.

When patients come in for a consultation about a facelift, a lot of the times they will ask about coupling their procedure with another. It is not uncommon for people to consider eyelid surgery, facial implants, or brow lift in compilation with a facelift. Based on a thorough physical assessment and medical history review by either Dr. Tamir Mosharrafa or Dr. Ali Mosharrafa, a surgical plan will be determined and may or may not include a coupled surgery. Our main goal is to preserve the patient’s natural beauty along with ensuring their safety.

- A compression garment with removal instructions for cleaning the incisions and showering.
