Facelift (Rhytidectomy) in Los Angeles & Beverly Hills, CA
A facelift restores smoother, more pleasing contours to your face and neck. It can help you look as good as you feel and feel younger than you are. The aesthetic balance between the face and neck is critical, and the transition must be harmonious. Los Angeles Facelift Specialist Dr. Ryan Stanton dedicates extra surgical time to this transition zone and automatically addresses the neck (neck lift) with each facelift he performs. Bring a photograph of yourself 10-15 years ago if you are considering any facial procedures.
A facelift does not correct conditions such as sagging eyebrows, excess skin, and fatty deposits in the upper and lower eyelids or wrinkles around the mouth. Dr. Stanton will discuss the other cosmetic facial plastic surgery procedures that treat these areas if you are interested in considering them in addition to a facelift. They can often be performed at the same time as a facelift surgery.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING A FACELIFT PROCEDURE?
A facelift is a surgical procedure that tightens supportive facial tissues and removes loose skin to provide rejuvenation to the lower face. This procedure can address lower face sagging, jowls, loss of definition around the jawline or chin, and wrinkles around the nose or mouth.
During a facelift, Dr. Stanton places incisions along the hairline, behind the ears, and/or under the chin. Through these incisions, he tightens tissues, removes excess fat, and tightens skin. The incisions are sutured closed using specialized techniques that minimize scarring to create a smooth, even skin appearance.
who can benefit from a facelift?
Facelift surgery can benefit men and women of many ages. You are a good candidate for a facelift if you have:
- Loss of fullness and sagging of the cheek tissue skin, muscle, and/or fat.
- Deep wrinkles in the cheeks and sagging of the highlight areas of the cheek bones.
- A deep line, or fold running from the corner of your mouth.
- Loose skin,wrinkles, vertical “cords” or excess fatty tissue in the neck.
Patients should not smoke or use nicotine products as this can slow healing and lead to post-surgery complications.
