Facelift Surgery


In Southern California, one’s physical appearance is a matter of high importance. Every year, thousands of individuals have facelift plastic surgery to look and feel more attractive.

For those seeking physical enhancement and a younger looking appearance, a facelift can dramatically improve sagging, loose facial skin. Factors such as overexposure to the sun, gravity, smoking, and aging can all affect your facial and neck appearance. A facelift can help improve your facial features by removing excess skin and tightening the underlying facial muscles.

World-renowned facial plastic surgeon Jason B. Diamond, M.D., F.A.C.S. is a premier Beverly Hills facelift expert. At The Diamond Face Institute, he offers a wide range of procedures for aesthetically improving the facial structure, as well as reconstructive techniques. Our facial plastic surgeon attracts patients throughout Los Angeles and Hollywood.

Dr. Diamond is skilled and experienced; he is board certified by the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (ABFPR) and the American Board of Otolaryngology (ABOto). In addition, Dr. Diamond is famous for his media appearances on E! Entertainment’s “Dr. 90210,” and in Harper’s BAZAAR magazine and People magazine.

Our Beverly Hills and Hollywood facelift patients have been able to achieve youthful and natural-looking appearances with the help of Dr. Diamond. At his surgical facilities, Dr. Diamond uses state-of-the-art equipment and the most advanced techniques to ensure your comfort and safety, while providing you with the incredible results you deserve.

If you are considering a facelift procedure (“rhytidectomy”), you can consult Dr. Diamond to help you fulfill your goals in facial plastic surgery.

Facelift surgery with our Hollywood cosmetic surgeon can help you achieve the following:

  • A more youthful appearance
  • Diminished appearance of extensive fine lines and wrinkles
  • Correction of sagging skin in the neck and jowl region

A facelift is usually performed on an out-patient basis, using general anesthesia.

As an experienced Los Angeles plastic surgeon, Dr. Diamond performs deep plane surgery – one of the most advanced facelift techniques available, typically providing longer-lasting results than traditional facelift surgery. To perform the procedure, small incisions are made in the hairline and around the ears, the underlying facial muscles are tightened and the skin is redraped, giving your skin a smoother appearance and eliminating fine lines and wrinkles.

Who is a Good Candidate for a Los Angeles Facelift?

Ideal candidates for a Beverly Hills facelift have wrinkles and sagging facial skin and are in good emotional and physical health. It is essential to the success of your plastic surgery that you start your experience with realistic expectations and the desire for personal improvement, not perfection.

The facelift patients looking to gain optimal results may also undergo a neck lift. Instead of a full facelift, Dr. Diamond may recommend mini facelift surgery for patients who would like to focus specifically on features of the mid face. For less-invasive methods that will reduce the appearance of wrinkles, our facelift surgeon offers a liquid facelift, which is a non-surgical approach to eliminating facial sagging skin and tissue of the face.

Facelift Technique

Dr. Diamond developed his reputation as an elite facial plastic surgeon based on his superior Facelift results initially. “My career path has been significantly different than almost every other Facial surgeon in that most people start their career doing noses and build from there because typically facelift patients take the longest time to become comfortable choosing a surgeon so they rarely go to a younger surgeon. I started my career based on my facelift results and my facelift practice grew very rapidly based on consistent natural and beautiful results. As a result my rhinoplasty practice grew from there, so facelifting was the first procedure that became nearest and dearest to my heart.”

Dr. Diamond first perfected the Deep Plane Facelift technique which requires dissection around the delicate facial nerves and is the most complex facelift to perform, but gives the most natural results. “I initially made my name based on my Deep Plane Facelift results because the results are so natural and beautiful,” says Dr. Diamond.

From there, Dr. Diamond developed other facelift techniques to meet the demands of those people who the deep plane facelift is not appropriate for. “The Deep Plane Facelift is ideal for those people who require a conservative lift of the neck and face but there are many people who require more than a conservative lift based on their anatomy and for those people the Deep Plane facelift is not appropriate. As a result I developed a Vertical Facelift Technique that is very powerful for rejuvenating the lines around the mouth and jowls,” says Dr. Diamond. The vertical facelift allows for more significant lifting which is ideal for older people and those who have had significant weight loss and now are left with a severe amount of excess skin, and also for those people with heavy jowls that are otherwise difficult to correct.

Dr. Diamond will also perform a hybrid of the two techniques for those people who are in between. “There is definitely a fine line between lifting the correct amount, doing too little and doing too much and having these different techniques at my disposal allows me to do exactly what is required for each individual person to achieve the results they desire”, says Dr. Diamond. “I have never made anyone look pulled or weird and I intend on keeping it that way.”

Dr. Diamond’s Insight Into the Facelift Procedure

Creating harmony between the lower and middle thirds of the face

As a Beverly Hills board certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon I have the honor, privilege and challenge of seeing people from all over the world who have had facelifts elsewhere who are unhappy with their current facelift or are ready to have their second facelift.

One of the most common complaints that I hear is the patient feels that they look “done.” Many patients complain that their scars are too visible. Many people also complain that their faces seem hollowed out particularly around the eyes. All of these problems are tell tale signs that someone has undergone a facial rejuvenation procedure.

One of the most important aspects of performing this type of surgery is to ensure that the results are natural, such that a person will look rested without looking operated on. Fortunately, all of the above mentioned problems are avoidable at the time of primary surgery and usually correctable with an appropriately performed secondary facelift. It is essential to create a harmony between the upper third (brows, upper eyelids), the middle third (cheeks and lower eyelids), and the lower third (neck and jawline).

We have all seen the people who have tight neck and jawlines but saggy cheeks and this is known as the lateral sweep deformity which occurs as a result of not addressing the middle third of the face at the time of the facelift procedure. There are several methods that are extremely effective at correcting the middle third of the face to avoid the above mentioned deformity. A deep plane facelift, midface lift, fat transfer, or submalar implants are all good options to create the appropriate balance between the lower and middle third of the face.

Many of these procedures alone will provide an excellent rejuvenation of the cheeks, but often times a given person may require a combination of the above procures. Because every face is different, the appropriate procedure will be based on the anatomy and particular goals and desires of each individual. Today we are able to produce far superior facelift result than we have in the past, and this is in the most part due to a better understanding of the aging process, as well as advancement in technology and surgical techniques.
