Face and Neck Lift in Los Angeles

 

Why does facial aging occur ?

As we age, our skin and deeper soft tissues weaken.  In addition, gravity pulls the skin of the face and neck down resulting in skin stretching. Thus, we gradually develops jowls, redundant/hanging neck, and heavy skin folds from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth (called nasolabial folds).  Wrinkles also develop in the face and neck areas during this aging process.  The result is an aged and tired appearance of the face.  In some people, extra fat may accumulate in the face and neck adding to the heavy and saggy appearance of the face and neck.

How can the appearance of the aged face be improved?

A face lift and neck lift work well for facial rejuvenation.

A face lift pulls the skin of the face up and back and the excess of the skin is removed.  Similarly, a neck lift pulls the skin of the neck up and back, and the excess of the skin is removed.  You can simulate the effect of the face and neck lift yourself in front of the mirror. Simply, pull your face and  neck skin up and back and notice the immediate improvement. 

During the face lift and neck lift in addition to tightening of the skin, we also tighten the deeper located soft tissues of the face and neck (called SMAS and platysma). In addition, we perform face and neck liposuction to remove excess fat in the face and neck when indicated.   The choice of techniques will be discussed with you in detail during your appointment.  Your goals, preference and facial/neck anatomy will be considered in planning your facial rejuvenation.

What results should I expect from a face lift and neck lift ?

The face lift and neck lift techniques we use produce the following results:

1. Neck will appear tighter and smoother, with restored youthful neck angle.

2. Jowls will be minimized or eliminated restoring the smooth contour of the lower jaw

3. The deep folds on each side of the nose (nasolabial folds) will be diminished.

4. The skin of the cheeks and neck appear will smoother with less wrinkles.

5. Overall the face and neck will appear refreshed and rejuvenated.

How long will the results last?

With today's techniques, the results last longer than in the past. Our patients are happy with results of the face and neck lift usually for a number of years after surgery. Some people decide have a touch-up years down the line.

The face lift and neck lift will reverse the clock. However, the aging process can not be stopped.  The exact duration of the face and neck lifts are not known and depend on each person’s physiology and genetics.  Some people develop the signs of aging faster than others.  Regardless of the continued aging process, you will still have a more refreshed and rejuvenated look at any point of time in the future after a face/neck lift than without surgery.

How are face lift and neck lift done?

We usually place the incisions where they can be hidden by your hair and behind your ears. The exact location and length of incisions will be discussed with you in detail and will depend on you anatomy and goals.

We perform face lift and neck lift under local anesthesia, sedation, or general anesthesia depending on your preference and medical condition. This will also be discussed with you in detail during your appointment. Our patients usually go home the same day.
