Prior to surgery, all of our facial aesthetic surgery patients will meet with one of our licensed medical aestheticians to prepare the skin for surgery. Patients will then be seen on a regular basis postoperatively for skin care treatments. Patients will also be provided with a full line of medical-grade skin care products and a tailored skin care regimen to help maximize the results.
A highly skilled and trusted facelift surgeon, Dr. Maffi performs facelift surgery in his fully accredited outpatient surgical center under light general anesthesia which is administered by a board certified anesthesiologist specializing in plastic surgery procedures. Dr. Maffi begins the surgery by creating inconspicuous incisions inside the hairline and around the curvature of the ear. He then uses a range of advanced techniques to remove unwanted fat and tighten and reshape the underlying facial muscles and structures.

Prospective facelift patients must also be in good general health. Most plastic surgery patients undergo facelift surgery in their 50s and 60s; however, it is not unusual for healthy individuals in their 70s and 80s to attain outstanding results.

A facelift can improve many areas of the face in one surgery and can last ten or more years. However, there will be some considerable downtime and considering you age, skin type and overall health, you may need a secondary procedure later on. The following are some common reasons to consider a facelift:
- Sagging skin in your midface and/or jawline
- Deep creases extending from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds)
- Lines extending from each corner of your mouth down your chin (marionette lines)
- Facial fat (volume) that has fallen or is displaced
- Sagging and loss of muscle tone in the lower face, resulting in jowls
- A double chin, resulting from loose skin and excess fatty deposits under the chin and jaw
- Creased and sagging skin in your neck
Every patient is unique so when you’re ready, call Maffi Surgery Clinic to schedule your personal consultation with Dr. Maffi at 480.505.6430. We look forward to the opportunity to meet you.

Blepharoplasty is typically performed at our fully accredited outpatient surgery center; light anesthesia is administered by a board certified anesthesiologist who specializes in plastic surgery procedures. Upper blepharoplasty begins with the creation of a small incision along the natural fold of the upper eyelids, Dr. Maffi then removes the excess fat and muscle, as well as the redundant skin between the eyelash and the eyebrow, making the upper eyelids look tighter and more refined.
Lower eyelid surgery is generally performed using one of two surgical approaches, depending on the desired results. If the lower lid appearance can be improved by removing fat tissue only, the procedure requires a small incision on the inside of the lower lid. If, however, excess skin is involved, Dr. Maffi will make the incision on the outside of the lower lid just below the lashes. In either case, the postoperative scarring is minimal and well-hidden within the natural creases of the eyelids. This procedure can also be performed simultaneously with other facial rejuvenation procedures such as a brow lift. Interested in a personal consultation?

Eyelid surgery is an excellent cosmetic treatment for men and women who have loose, sagging eyelids and/or excess puffiness and skin under the eyes. Although the procedure cannot eliminate crow’s feet and lines around the eyes, it can deliver a more refreshed facial look.
Prospective eyelid surgery patients must be in good general health and have realistic expectations of what the procedure can accomplish. Those who have severe dry eyes or an overactive thyroid gland may not be good candidates for the procedure as this can cause increased swelling around the eyes. After a careful screening process, Dr. Maffi will help determine whether blepharoplasty (eyelid lift) is the best surgical option for you. Call 480.505.6430 to learn more or to schedule a consultation with Dr. Maffi.
After the procedure, the eyes are lubricated and no dressing is required. Most patients experience some numbness and blurry vision immediately after surgery. A 5-7 day recovery at home is necessary, after which patients can return to work and other restricted activities. Private casitas are available at the surgical facility in which patients may choose to recover. Any swelling, bruising and mild discomfort subsides within a few days, and the results become more visible over time, generally within 10-14 days after the procedure. Detailed postoperative instructions along with a complete vitamin and supplement program are provided by Dr. Maffi to ensure eyelid surgery Scottsdale patients recover quickly and comfortably.

You will also be provided with a full line of medical-grade skin care products and a complimentary camouflage makeup session to help conceal any redness, bruising or scarring from surgery.
To perform brow lift surgery, Dr. Maffi will select an advanced surgical technique based on your unique anatomy, skin irregularities and aesthetic goals. In most cases, brow lift is completed using either the standard surgical method or the more recently developed endoscopic approach. During traditional brow lift surgery, the incisions are created behind the hairline, whereas endoscopic brow lift requires smaller incisions and the use of a surgical viewing instrument. Both procedures typically produce excellent aesthetic results with minimal scarring.
Brow lift surgery is usually performed under light general anesthesia, administered by a board certified anesthesiologist that specializes in plastic surgery procedures. The operation may last anywhere from 1-2 hours. Interested in a consultation with Dr. Maffi to discuss a brow lift? Call Maffi today at 480.505.6430.
Brow lift surgery is a cosmetic procedure that is performed to reduce visible signs of aging, often in patients ages 40 to 60. However, individuals who have naturally low and/or heavy brows or furrow lines can also achieve a more alert, well rested and refreshed appearance with brow lift surgery. Just like with any surgical procedure, in order to receive this treatment, patients must be in good general health and have realistic expectations. Forehead lift surgery can also be combined with other facial rejuvenation procedures such as eyelid surgery or Botox injection treatments. Contact Maffi Surgery Clinic to schedule your personal consultation 480.505.6430.
As you wake up from surgery, you will feel mild pain and discomfort. In some cases, Dr. Maffi may place surgical drains at the incision sites to help eliminate excess blood and fluid. In the days following brow lift surgery, your head may feel sore, tight and hot. Any discomfort is alleviated with mild pain medication, and patients are provided with a vitamin and supplement program to help with healing. Some bruising and swelling is normal and will subside gradually. Most patients are able to resume work and other daily activities within seven days or as recommended by Dr. Maffi.
Rather than going home after surgery, you may choose to recover in a private casita available at the surgical facility. Final results are usually achieved within four weeks, during which time you will be carefully monitored by Dr. Maffi and his medical team. In order to prevent any possibility of complications, you will be asked to follow all aftercare instructions diligently.
