Anyone interested in looking younger and refreshed can benefit from a facelift. A facelift is the true expression of your surgeon’s artistic ability. Time, gravity, sun exposure, and the stresses of daily life take their toll on our faces. A facelift is designed to remove the deep creases that appear beside the mouth, tighten the jawline, and lessen the folds and fat deposits on the neck.
Facelift surgery restores a smooth, youthful appearance to the face. It reduces facial lines and wrinkles, tightens sagging skin, and lifts areas of the face and neck that have lost their elasticity.
The facelift procedure is performed either on an outpatient basis at an ambulatory surgical care facility or in the hospital. Patients can typically go home the day of their surgery, but occasionally an overnight stay is recommended. We can recommend recovery facilities or home care if you would like additional private post-operative care in the days following surgery.
Dr. Agha will perform a short scar mini-facelift, unless significant skin laxity exists. He prefers incisions that are well hidden, as can be seen in the extensive before and after photo gallery of patients of Dr. Agha. The incision starts at the hairline, continues into a natural crease in front of the ear and then inside the ear cartilage, and ends around the ear lobule behind the ear. If a necklift is needed, a small incision may be made under the chin. Dr. Agha then elevates the facial skin from the underlying fat and muscle. The underlying muscle fascia is then tightened and the fat elevated to appropriately correct for the anatomical changes of the aged face. The excess skin is then excised. Dr. Agha, as a skilled plastic surgeon, is able to provide a natural, younger, fresher look to his patients.
Facelift surgery is often performed in conjunction with a brow lift to provide full facial rejuvenation. Eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty may also be performed at the same time as a facelift, especially if a patient has significant skin overhang in the upper eyelids.
All of our procedures are listed below in our extensive gallery that we have created for the ease of the viewer. If you are seriously considering plastic surgery, before and after photos can say a thousand words. They can give you a good idea of the possible results and offer a preliminary indicator of a surgeon’s experience and skill level.

Whether you are coming from Orange County or Los Angeles, San Diego or Riverside, Dr. Agha and his staff wish to welcome you. Our 7,000 square feet state-of-the-art facility of The Aesthetic Centers that was recently completed in 2018.
Dr. Agha routinely consults with patients who choose to travel internationally or from other states. Many patients desire to take advantage of his expertise and skill but are not located nearby for a consultation. As a result, Dr. Agha offers virtual consultations if you are located outside Southern California. Therefore, don’t delay and call the office for a consultation.
Dr. Agha and his staff truly feel like a second family to me. I revealed my biggest insecurity to him and his team, only to be met with sincere respect and absolutely no judgment or criticism. I had a tummy tuck, lipo on the small of my back and fat transfer from that lipo to my buttocks. I was completely prepared for recovery, as they well informed me of what to expect so there were no surprises. The results exceeded both of our expectations as he is just as excited about them as I am. I have recommended him to absolutely everyone I know, and others who are just beginning their journey with their own self improvement. He is the most qualified surgeon in the state of California (believe me, I have checked), and has even pioneered certain procedures that are imitated in the state and I’m sure throughout the country.
