Though there are many options to reduce the signs of aging, the face lift is still the most effective choice for rejuvenation. There are a variety of approaches available to customize the procedure for each individual patient. During our initial facelift consultation in Los Angeles, we'll discuss which technique is right for you, and whether you'd like to add eyelid surgery or another procedure to the surgical plan.
For me, natural results are paramount for each patient seeking surgery in Los Angeles. Face lift treatment plans are fine tuned to meet each man or woman's unique needs.

Most candidates for a face lift in Los Angeles are in their 40's to 60's. Mini face lifts and short scar techniques are most useful in younger patients. The full incision approach is best for older patients or following weight loss, when there is substantial skin laxity in the neck.
Patients should stop smoking and blood pressure should be properly controlled before surgery.
Most face lift patients take about a week off of work. Most people usually look their best 6 weeks after surgery.
For maximum rejuvenation, eyelid surgery and laser resurfacing are frequently combined with face lifts in the same operation. Chin implants and brow lifts are also complementary procedures that may be performed at the same time as a face lift.
Complications from face lifts have been uncommon in my experience. Bleeding, infection, delayed healing and nerve damage are possible. Each of these complications is treatable with quality postoperative care.
