Dr. A. John Vartanian offers his patients innovative facelift and neck lift procedures designed to provide natural-looking results without the appearance of surgery.
Glendale, CA — Individuals seeking to improve signs of aging on the face and neck without being subjected to excessive downtime may be excellent candidates for a facelift and/or a minimally invasive neck lift, says Dr. A. John Vartanian, a Los Angeles facial plastic surgeon. Dr. Vartanian provides treatment intended to achieve the most natural-looking results while restoring a youthful aesthetic to the skin and contour of the face and neck, and he often performs the two aforementioned procedures in combination for an improved outcome.
In a recent blog post titled, “Advantage Facelift: The Benefits of Dr. Vartanian’s Facelift Approach,” Dr. Vartanian details the advantages of his modified facelift technique. The Vartanian Facelift is designed to:
● Reposition deep tissue layers
● Diminish appearance of deep wrinkles
● Conceal potential scarring
● Provide long-lasting results
Of paramount importance to his patients, Dr. Vartanian emphasizes techniques that provide a natural-looking result without the appearance of “pulled” skin or detectable scars. He states his technique allows for long lasting results while preserving natural facial landmarks, such as normal earlobe position, and leaves nearly undetectable incision lines. In almost all his facelifts, he notes, he will also address the neck in the same setting with a neck lift. Many patients also come to him seeking revision facelift surgery to improve the unsatisfactory results of a previous procedure performed elsewhere, he asserts.
In a subsequent blog post titled, “Candidacy for a Minimally Invasive Neck Lift,” Dr. Vartanian discusses the symptoms that can be addressed through his less invasive neck lift technique, including:
● Inelastic skin on the neck
● Loose muscle tissues
● Fatty tissue buildups
Candidates for either of these procedures often experience indications of aging on both the face and the neck, he says. By combining the two procedures, he adds that the entire face from brow line to lower neck can be rejuvenated for a more comprehensive result. Recuperation may take as little as a few days for one procedure and a week for two, but individual experience varies. Dr. Vartanian reminds patients that some light bruising and swelling in the treated area is normal.
Ultimately, Dr. Vartanian aspires to perform enhanced facial rejuvenation treatments that restore his patients’ youthful appearance without visible signs of surgery. His custom facelift and neck lift procedures are two options that offer long-lasting, natural-looking results.

The neck is particularly susceptible to signs of aging, and can be the first area to show signs of early aging – such as loose skin or build-up of excess fat. Patients experiencing these symptoms sometimes worry they appear older than they feel, and they wish for a rejuvenated appearance. If you’re considering a surgical rejuvenation treatment for your neck, Dr. John Vartanian may be able to help you restore a more youthful-looking contour with a minimally invasive neck lift.
Dr. Vartanian provides a customized experience for each patient, ensuring the treatment they undergo is designed to accomplish their individual goals and needs as closely as possible. Ideal candidates for a neck lift procedure include anyone experiencing one or all of the following:
- Inelastic, sagging skin on the neck
- Loose muscle tissue underlying skin on the neck
- Neck banding
- Pockets of excess fatty tissue creating a “pooching” effect
Not only does Dr. Vartanian’s method help alleviate these issues, but his technique is also less invasive than many traditional neck lift procedures. As a result, most patients experience less downtime and fewer side effects. Depending on the techniques employed other benefits can include:
- Firmer skin
- Improved, youthful appearance
- Brief recovery period
- Inconspicuous or invisible scars
- Potential for combination with other procedures, like facelift surgery
- Results are often apparent immediately
As with all medical and surgical treatments, Dr. Vartanian needs to examine you in person to be able to offer you treatment options best suited to your esthetic needs.

First impressions are important and a natural youthful appearance can enhance self-esteem. Signs of aging such as wrinkles, sagging skin, and jowls, can cause some individuals to feel self-conscious, affecting their interactions with friends, family, and even and business contacts. Perhaps most importantly, many patients feel much younger than what they see in the mirror, and they elect to have a facial rejuvenation procedure to satisfy their own personal desire to look more like how they feel – younger and not old. Fortunately, Dr. John Vartanian offers a number of facial rejuvenation options customized to the individual’s esthetic goals, which may include mini-facelift, facelift, neck lift, lasers, and non-surgical options. At our practice, Dr. Vartanian aims to restore the youthful aesthetic appearance that the individual once enjoyed, always endeavoring to avoid the artificial tightness that can result from some traditional methods of facial rejuvenation surgery. He offers several different facelift procedures, and he can often correct the unsatisfactory results of a procedure performed elsewhere with a revision facelift. Every patient receives personal attention and a customized plan. Other benefits of facelift surgery may include:
- Diminished appearance of facial wrinkles
- Inconspicuous or invisible scarring
- Long-lasting results
- Natural-looking rejuvenation
Additionally, facelift surgery can often be combined with complementary treatments and procedures to provide an even more comprehensive rejuvenation.
Who is a Good Candidate for a Facelift?
Age is just a number. As such, patients of different age ranges can take advantage of different types of lifting procedures designed to address their cosmetic needs. Dr. Vartanian achieves a natural-looking result by repositioning the deep tissues of the face to approximate their pre-aging positions. There are times where non-surgical method can get you so far. When certain features are visible surgery is the only real answer. Some these features include:
- Turkey neck, loose neck skin
- Neck Bands
- Loose or excess skin on the face
- Jowls and hanging skin in the lower face
- Double chin or neck fullness
- If you can pinch an inch of skin under your neck or on your face
