Why let the years give away your age? Growing older does not have to involve looking old. The years, the elements, and stress work against us all to create wrinkles and sagging skin on the cheeks, jawline, and neck. You might be surprised to learn how many people have rejuvenated their face and erased years from their look across the globe and the nation, as well as nearby in Los Angeles, with face lift surgery.
A Facial Renewal
A face lift, or rhytidectomy, improves the appearance of the lower two-thirds of the face by tightening sagging facial muscles, smoothing wrinkled skin, and removing excess fat. This procedure is often combined with a neck lift for improvements under the chin. The surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia, but can be performed using local anesthesia with sedation. Face lift surgery usually takes between 2 to 4 hours to complete depending on the extent of the procedure.
Test drive your new look
Visualize the results that can be achieved from your procedure with computer simulations from the VECTRA 3D imaging system. This advanced technology can help you and your surgeon to determine the best approach for creating the results you want.
Face lift surgery in Beverly Hills provides lasting improvements that can remain for 5 to 10 years. Our patients often find that regaining their youthful look enhances their self-esteem as well as their appearance. Unfortunately, the procedure can’t stop the natural aging process. Factors such as skin elasticity, exposure to the sun, and lifestyle choices (such as, smoking and weight changes) can affect the longevity of your improvements.
Many of our patients from Los Angeles and Beverly Hills elect to combine their facelift procedure with other facial sculpting procedures, such as a brow lift, eyelid surgery, and rhinoplasty. Our patients with less advanced wrinkling and sagging can sometimes benefit from the less invasive mini face lift, which involves smaller incisions and quicker recovery. The VECTRA 3-D imaging system can help you determine which combination of procedures will achieve your goals by creating personalized simulations of your results from various treatments.
