Anyone acquainted with Dr. George Orloff will tell you that his skill as a face doctor is as obvious as his passion for plastic surgery. Renowned for his exceptional ability to produce natural-looking results by working on the structure of the face – not just removing extra skin – Dr. Orloff is uniquely qualified to give you lasting results after your facelift.
“I became a surgeon to help patients achieve visible, enjoyable results and improve their lives,” says Dr. Orloff, “I love being part of their transformation process.” It’s the knowledge that Dr. Orloff cares deeply about his patients that encourages them to trust him with their most precious body part: the face.
At Burbank Plastic Surgery, we take the art of facial surgery very seriously. Facelift surgery is customized for each patient, depending on his or her needs. At your initial consultation, you and Dr. Orloff will discuss your desired goals, and agree on a treatment plan to meet those goals. Various techniques are utilized to carry out this type of procedure, and Dr. Orloff will make a recommendation that supports the desired outcome. Here are the options:
During a full facelift, the soft tissues of the face, neck and jawline are lifted and the excess skin is removed to create a more vibrant, youthful look. Full facelift surgery also includes a neck lift for the full effect of raising and tightening all sagging skin near the face.
If you have a little sagging and aren’t ready for a full facelift, the mini facelift is a perfect option. A mini facelift combats sagging in the lower part of the face and upper neck area. It’s a smaller surgery to “get rid of that little bit that bothers you,” entailing a much shorter incision, less surgery and a faster recovery.
This popular and minimally invasive procedure lifts the cheek tissues with no visible incisions or scars. Additional benefits include improvement in the tear trough area and dark circles under the eyes, and softening of any undesirable cheek folds. Recovery time is quick, and most people return to work within a week.
As we age, we lose volume in our face. A fat transfer can replenish this volume by lifting facial tissues and improving fullness of the cheeks and midface. During the transfer, excess fat is carefully removed from one area of the body and transferred to the face via a specialized, precise process that can be used by itself or with a lifting procedure.
Fillers, neuroblockers, and fat dissolvers are extremely powerful nonsurgical options. These are various medications that we can inject to smooth out wrinkles and lift tissues in the brows, cheeks, lips, jowls, and upper neck. Injections do not replace surgery, but they are important for maintenance and maximizing your appearance without surgery.
No matter the type of facial procedure, Dr. Orloff delivers. “Absolutely would recommend Dr. Orloff for any procedures,” client Molly S. says. “His work really went above and beyond my expectations. My sister, dad, and two aunts have all gone to him and he has done magic every single time.”
