Best Facelift Surgeon In Beverly Hills, CA

At Yamin Plastic Surgery®, we specialize in advanced surgical techniques to provide the best plastic surgery offerings in the area. One of the most popular services we offer at our Yamin practice is the rhytidectomy, more commonly known as the facelift. We’ll be happy to book you for a consultation with one of our board-certified plastic surgeons whenever you’re ready to get started.

What Is A Facelift?

The colloquial term for rhytidectomy came about because this surgery lifts sagging skin on the lower half of your face. A plastic surgeon will tighten the skin around the chin, jaw and cheekbones to give your skin a smoother, healthier and younger appearance.

Facelifts are one of the most common plastic surgery procedures performed around the world, and there have been incredible developments in technique and procedure that allow for a more natural look and a faster healing time. In just a few weeks, you’ll be ready to make your debut with a younger appearance that highlights the most beautiful parts of you.

The team at Yamin Plastic Surgery® includes some of the country’s leading facelift surgeons who specialize in advanced techniques and exceptional deliveries. Explore our results gallery and see why we’ve earned our reputation as one of the best rhytidectomy locations in Beverly Hills, CA.

Who Should Get A Facelift?

Our surgeons want you to feel comfortable in your skin, and sometimes, the best way to do that is through a facelift. If you deal with any of the following conditions, a rhytidectomy is an excellent option to restore your confidence:

  • Loose skin around the cheeks and jawline.
  • Deep lines, wrinkles and creases around the face and neck, especially between the nose and mouth.
  • Having good physical and emotional health and a support system to help them recover.

The Facelift Process

Before we start your procedure, we’ll sit down with you for a consultation. During this time, we’ll review your medical history and perform an evaluation to ensure you’re a good candidate for our services. We’ll also talk in-depth about what you hope to get from a facelift and the kind of results you’re looking for. Once we agree to move forward, we’ll take your “before” shots for medical records.

On the day of the surgery, our team will talk with you one last time to ensure we’re all on the same page about your treatment. We’ll answer any last-minute questions and make sure you’re prepared for post-operative care. Then, we can get started with our minimally invasive surgery, making incisions along your hairline and other easily-hidden places. Our expertise helps you get the most natural results possible while tightening loose skin and removing excess fat.

Side Effects Of Face Surgery

As with any surgery, getting a facelift can come with some post-operative side effects. The usual recovery time for a facelift is about a month, with most of the significant healing happening within the first two weeks. During this time, patients report effects like:

  • Swelling
  • Tightness
  • Weakness
  • Discomfort
  • Numbness
  • Cold sweat
  • Heart palpitations
  • Depression
  • Quietness

The last two symptoms are often due to the inability to communicate over the first few days of recovery. We often advise patients to avoid visits and overusing face muscles until they have some time to heal. Having some of your favorite activities, shows and hobbies readily available can be a welcome distraction.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can A Facelift Be Combined With Other Cosmetic Procedures?

Yes. Facelift surgery can be combined with ancillary surgical or nonsurgical treatments to address multiple signs of aging. After a facelift, many patients schedule treatments that target issues such as sun damage and fine lines and wrinkles. Our doctors spend time listening to patients’ concerns. We develop the ideal treatment plan for each so that the signs of aging are adequately corrected.

Will A Facelift Help The Lines Around My Eyes And Forehead?

Facelift surgery is performed to improve the shape of the lower face, from the cheeks to the jawline. Some patients with slight submental fullness or loose skin on the upper neck may notice an improvement in these conditions, as well. While we can customize a facelift to address a variety of concerns, this procedure does not extend to the eyes or forehead region. In the upper area of the face, adults may develop concerns about hooded, heavy eyelids, horizontal or vertical lines, puffiness, and more. These issues can be difficult to ignore. Fortunately, they are not difficult to correct. At the time of a facelift consultation, a patient can discuss other procedures, surgical and nonsurgical, to rejuvenate the forehead and eyes, as well.

What Are The Risks Of Facelift Surgery?
When performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon, facelift surgery is considered very safe. That said, no surgery is completely without risk. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the risks of facelift surgery, though rare, include:

  • Anesthesia risks
  • Infection
  • Bleeding
  • Prolonged swelling
  • Poor wound healing and skin loss
  • Skin irregularities and discoloration
  • Unfavorable scarring
  • Fluid accumulation
  • Deep vein thrombosis, cardiac and pulmonary complications
  • Facial nerve injury with weakness
  • Temporary or permanent hair loss at the incisions
  • Persistent pain
  • Numbness or other changes in skin sensation
  • Spontaneous surfacing of sutures through the skin
  • Unsatisfactory aesthetic outcome such as asymmetry

An experienced plastic surgeon employs protocols that minimize surgical risks. Patients can also manage their risks by following their post-surgical care instructions well.

Will There Be Any Additional Scarring?
Our experienced plastic surgeons are experts and placing facelift incisions in discreet locations. The majority of facelift scars are placed well and do not pose a significant concern. Still, patients are encouraged to carefully follow post-operative instructions to help scars heal as quickly and efficiently as possible.

General guidelines for optimal scar healing include:

  • Keep the incisions clean and dry
  • Stay hydrated and eat enough protein
  • Use all ointments recommended by the surgeon
  • Take multivitamins
  • Protect the incisions/scars from direct sunlight
How Long Does It Take For A Facelift To Settle?
The majority of healing and recovery occurs during the first four weeks after a facelift. After about one month, patients typically resume most of their normal activities, including moderate exercise. Still, it is important to continue paying attention to physical and emotional cues that additional rest is needed. Certain areas of the face may remain slightly bruised or swollen, but this is usually minimal and concealable with makeup. A sensation of tightness may persist for 6 to 8 weeks. After approximately 2 months, the side effects of surgery should be nearly resolved and we expect the patient to be enjoying their refreshed, youthful look.
