What is the Beverly Hills facelift?

A facelift, or rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure designed to smooth and firm the skin providing a fresh, youthful appearance.

Surgery for a facelift involves the repositioning of facial and neck skin and underlying tissues, and in some instances, the removal of excess fat deposits.

You may want a facelift if you have:

  • Sagging skin, muscles, and fat in the face and neck
  • Excess skin and fat in the neck area
  • A sagging jaw line
  • Crease lines along the nose, mouth, and chin

The Beverly Hills Facelift Procedure

The facelift commonly involves making small incisions just inside the hairline, following the contour in front of the ear, and continuing under the earlobe to the backside of the ear and to the lower scalp.

The underlying tissue is repositioned, excess fat is removed, the skin is repositioned, and any excess skin is removed.

If the neckline requires attention, an additional incision is made under the chin and the same procedure is again followed.

Fine stitches are used to close the incisions and to reduce any chance of scarring.

A facelift may take several hours or longer depending on whether other cosmetic procedures are completed at the same time.

Patients who undergo a facelift have stitch removal after a week and experience some swelling and discomfort.
