Before your procedure begins, we will once again discuss your desired outcome in the pre-operative area. I may mark your skin to show where your incisions will be. After this, we will move forward with your procedure.
What Kind of Anesthesia Is Used?
A facelift in Beverly Hills is performed under general anesthesia. I may also use a numbing solution on the skin to minimize any discomfort upon waking from surgery.
The Surgical Procedure
I work alongside a complete surgical team to provide you with the best results for all of my cosmetic procedures. During your surgery, my team will work together to ensure that you are comfortable and safe at all times.
Once you are fully under anesthesia, I will make incisions inside the hairline at the temple, in front of the ear, then around the earlobe and behind the ear, ending in the scalp area. I strategically make incisions in these areas because they can easily be concealed post-surgery.
I perform all of my procedures under 3.5X microscopic examination in order to have the most precise visual while working. This allows me to pay the closest attention to detail and give you the most natural-looking results.
When performing a facelift in Beverly Hills, I accomplish a natural-looking outcome by placing the pull of tissues on the layer under the skin called the SMAS. This technique puts the soft tissue framework of your face back into its youthful position. Once complete, I gently drape the skin back into place and trim away any excess sagging skin. I make sure not to create an overly “pulled” look that makes cosmetic work very obvious.
Many of my facelift procedures are performed with other treatments at the same time. This often includes fat grafting, which involves harvesting fat from another body area and placing it in the cheeks or around the eyes to restore volume.
Some patients desire an eyelid lift or neck lift along with their facelift in Beverly Hills. When these procedures are performed together, they give the patient an overall balanced and harmonious look.
How Long Does a Facelift Procedure Last?
A facelift in Beverly Hills can last anywhere from five to eight hours, depending on your unique needs. Surgery is typically eight hours when patients request other procedures like a neck or eyelid lift.
