What is a facelift?

A facelift is a surgical procedure to address signs of aging in the face and neck to regain the youthful appearance you once had. A facelift procedure is the gold-standard in facial rejuvenation. A facelift lifts and tightens deep tissues of the face that have declined aesthetically over time due to aging. By skillfully manipulating the complex musculature and tissues beneath it, an expert surgeon like Dr. Neavin can transform your features to enhance smooth wrinkles and lines, and help you tighten the face. As results from modern face lifting procedures are both striking and natural-looking, it is a hugely popular cosmetic procedure that provides patients with long-lasting aesthetic results.

Benefits of Facelift Surgery

Simply put, a facelift is one of the top cosmetic surgery procedures for patients that are looking to correct facial aging, and it is one of its greatest benefits.

Some of the key benefits of facelift surgery include the following:

  • It tightens and accentuates facial features and the facial structure.
  • It smooths texture and dramatically reduces the appearance of deeper wrinkles and lines
  • It can carefully adjust facial musculature and surrounding tissues for the best results.
  • It’s a more permanent, longer-lasting cosmetic solution than injectables
  • Scars are subtle and well-hidden in the natural contours of the face, hairline, and neck.
  • The procedure can markedly reduce progressive facial aging.
  • Combined with fat transfer, more natural facial architecture can be recreated.

The main goal is to restore the youth you one had in the face. It can address numerous signs of aging, including:

  • Nasolabial folds
  • Sag below the eyes
  • Prominent jowling
  • Changes in cheek fat distribution
  • Facial dimpling
  • Facial architecture
  • Volume loss

Dr. Neavin achieves effective rejuvenation results by placing strategic incisions at specific points. He then elevates the skin to reveal the musculature and its surrounding tissues, the superficial musculoaponeurotic system (SMAS); a key factor in many facelifts.

Types of Facelift Procedures

There are several facelift techniques that can be used to achieve the best result depending on the patient’s request. A combination of any of the techniques with a brow lift is common to achieve the desired volume. 

Mini Facelift

Mini – facelifts varies from surgeon to surgeon. Usually, a mini facelift is indicated for patients who wish to tighten a specific area of the face; namely the jowls and upper neck. A mini facelift procedure does not focus on the SMAS but instead seeks to “fine tune” a targeted section of the face for less extensive, but natural-looking results. As less of the face is operated on, there are smaller incision points which can result in shorter, barely visible scars after healing from your mini facelift procedure.

Neck Lift

Some patients may wish to combine a facelift procedure with a neck lift to improve the soft tissues of the face. This method requires the excision of excess skin and tissue in both the face and the neck area with incision points around the ears, down the back of the neck, and under the chin. A neck lift as a standalone procedure is suitable for patients with excessive skin laxity in the neck, or for patients with prominent platysmal banding (muscle bands in the neck), but who have very little visible sagging in the face.

SMAS Facelift

The SMAS facelift alters the underlying muscles and tissues of the face as well as the skin for a tightened effect. It may involve plication (folding) and imbrication (overlapping). After exposing the SMAS, Dr. Neavin adjusts the SMAS, lifting and trimming the necessary tissue where indicated. Depending on your treatment plan, the SMAS facelift may involve fat transfer. Once the manipulation of tissues is complete, and the necessary skin is removed, he redrapes the overlying skin and sutures it at a higher position.

Traditional Facelift

A traditional facelift can effectively address sagging skin, extra skin, deep creases, and jowls, providing a more refreshed and revitalized  profile. While it is a more invasive procedure compared to non-surgical alternatives, a traditional facelift can deliver long-lasting results for individuals seeking a comprehensive facial rejuvenation solution.

Which technique is best for you?

During your consultation, Dr. Neavin will go over all of the facelift surgical techniques listed above and recommend the best technique for your anatomy. 

Ideal Facelift Candidates

A facelift is done with general anesthesia, thus adults in their 40s, 50s, and 60s must be healthy and will benefit most from a facelift. Where patients have deeper lines, double chins, marionette lines, and prominent wrinkles, and there is severe skin laxity in the profile, a facelift can achieve dramatic, lasting results. As one of the most comprehensive ways to rejuvenate the face, face lifting is extremely popular for many reasons, including:

  • Take blood-thinning medications/have a blood clotting disorder
  • Are heavy smokers who would struggle with cessation
  • Have a serious heart or lung condition
  • Have hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • Have poorly controlled diabetes
  • Have unrealistic expectations of results

Cost of a Facelift in Beverly Hills

The facelift Beverly Hills cost depends on the type of facelift Dr. Neavin deems best for your needs, and whether you choose to combine it with another procedure. Financing may be available to qualified candidates.

Facelift Recovery

As with other invasive procedures, face lift recovery time for patients follow a similar protocol. For the first few days after the procedure, avoid strenuous activity and any sun exposure. Pain medication will be prescribed to help manage any discomfort for the first week or so. 

You will experience some swelling for the first week and it will subside after 2-4 weeks.

You will begin to see the final results of the facelift 3-6 months post-operation. The incision lines will begin to fade and blend in with your natural skin

    When performed by an experienced and skilled surgeon, the results will very natural looking. However, it’s important to have realistic expectations and understand that the outcome will depend on a variety of factors, including the patient’s age, skin quality, and individual anatomy.

    It’s normal to experience some swelling and bruising during the healing process after a facelift, which can take several weeks to subside. The initial results may be visible after a few weeks, but the outcome may take several months to fully develop as the tissues heal and settle into their new position.

    A facelift can improve the appearance of wrinkles, but it may not eliminate them. The extent to which wrinkles are reduced will depend on a variety of factors, such as the depth and location of the wrinkles, the patient’s age, and the quality of their skin. In some cases, additional treatments such as fillers, Botox, or laser resurfacing may be recommended to further improve the appearance of wrinkles.

    In the world of aesthetic surgery, facelift procedures carry rare risks of infection and bleeding. These risks occur in less than 10% of cases. Occasionally, a fluid collection called hematoma may form beneath the skin flap. Fortunately, this can be resolved by draining the fluid with a needle in most cases. Reopening the incision for drainage is extremely uncommon. While complications are rare, it’s important to mention potential damage to nearby nerves responsible for facial expressions like smiling or raising eyebrows. Our top-rated Beverly Hills plastic surgery practice prioritizes patient safety above all else. Our board-certified surgeons have extensive training and years of experience performing facelifts and other cosmetic procedures. They understand how crucial it is to minimize risks while achieving optimal results. When considering a facelift procedure, patients often wonder about cost and recovery time. The price varies based on factors such as surgeon expertise, location (like Beverly Hills), and additional procedures included (neck lifts or eyelid surgeries). Recovery times differ from person to person; however, most individuals experience mild swelling and bruising for around two weeks after their facelift procedure. It’s important to follow post-operative instructions carefully during this time for proper healing. Choosing our Beverly Hills practice offers significant advantages including natural-looking results tailored specifically for you—enhancing your unique features while maintaining your individuality. Our skilled surgeons use advanced techniques like laser-assisted facelifting approaches or combining surgical and non-surgical procedures to achieve longer-lasting outcomes with minimal scarring compared to traditional methods.

    A facelift is primarily designed to rejuvenate the lower two-thirds of the face, including the cheeks, jawline, and neck. It typically does not address issues in the upper third of the face, such as forehead wrinkles and drooping eyebrows.

    For forehead wrinkles and sagging eyebrows, procedures more specifically targeted to these areas are usually recommended. These include:

    • Forehead Lift or Brow Lift: This surgical procedure specifically targets the area above the eyes and the forehead. It aims to lift drooping eyebrows, reduce the appearance of forehead wrinkles, and improve frown lines. The procedure involves the removal or alteration of the muscles and skin that cause the furrows and lines in the forehead.
    • Botox Injections: For treating forehead wrinkles, Botox is a popular non-surgical option. It works by temporarily paralyzing the muscles that cause wrinkles, leading to a smoother appearance of the skin. However, Botox does not lift sagging eyebrows; it primarily addresses dynamic wrinkles caused by muscle movements.
    • Dermal Fillers: These can be used to fill in deep forehead wrinkles, but like Botox, they do not address sagging eyebrows.
    • Laser Treatments and Chemical Peels: These procedures can improve the texture and appearance of the skin, reducing the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles on the forehead. However, they do not lift sagging skin.
    • Combination Approaches: Often, a combination of these treatments is used for a more comprehensive approach. For instance, a person might have a brow lift for sagging eyebrows and use Botox or fillers for forehead wrinkles.
