A facelift by a plastic surgeon can help restore the look of your youth by selectively reversing the many signs of aging* in the face, including:
- Sagging, wrinkles, and jowls.
- Deepening of the nasolabial folds—creases on the sides of the nose that extend to the corners of the mouth, commonly known as “smile lines.”
- The weakening of the neck muscles, resulting in the development of the “gobble or turkey neck.”
It should be noted that facelifts do not correct the visible signs of again in the upper face; therefore it is most commonly done, if needed, in conjunction with upper and lower eyelid surgery, brow lift, or forehead lift. For those who want to improve their skin texture and skin tone, there is skin resurfacing using either chemical peels or lasers also.
What to Expect After Your Face Lift
After a facelift, there will be some degree of swelling and bruising, and recovery times vary. Post-operatively, patients recover in our comfortable recovery room under the supervision of nurses and anesthesiologists. Most patients are discharged home after their operation with detailed instructions.
For those with major surgery or multiple surgeries, or those requesting further care after discharge from the recovery room, there are private duty nurses to help you through a safe and comfortable recovery.
For out of town patients, Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Aboolian has access to some private overnight recovery facilities in Southern California that are specially trained to provide you with the best and the most conscientious nursing care.
After the recovery period, if you have had a facelift combined with another procedure mentioned—eyelid surgery, brow lift, or forehead lift—the outward signs of aging may be reduced by approximately 8 to 12 years.
