Patients who have not yet reached their 50's or 60's may benefit from a short scar facelift or mini facelift in Los Angeles. These procedures can help rejuvenate the cheeks with a lower cost and shorter recovery than a traditional facelift. These options can be quite effective for the right patient, but they do not have as dramatic an impact as a full facelift.
During your personal consultation, we'll discuss your options. My years of experience working with thousands of facial rejuvenation patients will enable me to recommend a surgical plan that fits your needs. Achieving a natural-looking result will be one of our goals.
I use two primary techniques for younger patients seeking a face lift.
Many factors play a role in the way our faces look, including chronological age, sun exposure, environmental factors and genetics. Candidates for a mini face lift, short scar face lift or traditional face lift can be as young as in their 30's, or well into their 70's and beyond. It's best to choose the procedure that is most likely to achieve your goals, and we will decide that together in your consultation.
Patients should be in good overall health. Blood pressure should be under control. If you smoke, you should stop prior to surgery for optimal results and healing.
Mini facelift and short scar facelift patients usually take a few days to a week off work. Most people look good within a few days, with most swelling gone by six weeks.
Complications from facelift surgery have been uncommon in my experience. Infection, bleeding, slow healing and nerve damage are possible risks.
