Facelift Surgery Beverly Hills Los Angeles

As we age, certain parts of our face tend to droop, sag, and develop wrinkles. This is most pronounced in the neck and on the sides of the face in areas called the jowls. Facelift can address these signs of aging. In the facelift procedure, incisions are made around the ears and within the hair on the scalp. Modern facelift techniques as done at Rodeo Drive Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles provide excellent results by tightening both the skin and the deeper tissues of the face and neck.

Before and after facelift

This approach allows flexibility so the surgeon can tailor the facelift to each patient and avoid the “windswept” look that was common some years ago. The facelift procedure is modified for each patient individually to provide the best results. Restoration of volume combined with a facelift optimizes a natural appearing balanced result our patients desire. Facelift is often combined with other facial procedures such as browlift, blepharoplasty or neck liposuction depending on the needs of the patient. For some patients, the Rodeo Drive Chin Rejuvenation procedure can provide neck and chin improvement either with or without a facelift. Learn more about chin augmentation

Consultation for a Face Lift

During your consultation at Rodeo Drive Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills – Los Angeles Ca, your Beverly Hills plastic surgeon will examine you and discuss recommendations for the specific type of facelift to yield the best results. The facelift procedure is often done as an outpatient with recovery either at a specialized overnight care center or at home, sometimes with a private duty nurse. The facelift is performed under general anesthesia administered by a physician anesthesiologist to minimize discomfort during the procedure. In addition, for the facelift the surgeon uses local anesthesia to numb the face and neck. Most patients have very little pain following the facelift surgery because long-acting local anesthetic is administered as part of the procedure. Most patients return to work about 10 to 14 days after the facelift surgery. There may be some bruising for a week or so and some swelling for a few weeks following facelift surgery. The majority of patients feel good enough to return to most activities after a few days of the facelift procedure. Read more about a threadlift.

Browlift Surgery – Forehead Lift

As we age, our brow tends to sag and droop. We also develop lines in our forehead and along the sides of our eyes. Browlift addresses these signs of aging. At Rodeo Drive Plastic Surgery we use various browlift techniques depending on the features and needs of individual patients. These include the coronal lift, which uses an incision along the entire scalp; the temporal brow lift, which uses small incisions at the lateral parts of the hairline; and the endoscopic brow lift, which uses several small scalp incisions and telescopes to do the lift.
