Everyone wants to project an image of youthful vitality, but a person’s face is usually noticed first and often displays the most significant signs of aging. Facelift surgery, or rhytidectomy, in the Beverly Hills area can correct facial sagging and wrinkles to rejuvenate your appearance.
Facelift surgery turns back the hands of time to help patients look as young as they feel.
A facelift performed by celebrity plastic surgeon Dr. Diamond is the obvious choice to improve signs of aging and achieve a more youthful appearance. The facial tissues are adjusted and the skin is pulled smooth to give patients taut, firm facial contours and to reveal a more vibrant outward image. You can look up to 10 years younger after undergoing this procedure in Beverly Hills with facelift surgeon Dr. Diamond.
A facelift in Beverly Hills can effectively diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Wrinkles and fine lines are some of the leading contributors to an aged appearance, and they can appear on almost any area of the face, especially in the midface and from the nose to the corners of the mouth (nasolabial folds). Facelift surgery reduces these pesky furrows by correcting underlying depressions that allow the skin to fold and pulling wrinkled skin smooth.
Facelift surgery corrects sagging and redistributes displaced fat to reveal tighter, firmer skin.
Loose skin, fat deposits, and weakened tissues often cause the face to sag, especially along the jawline and into the neck. Facelift surgery lifts and tightens the underlying tissues of the face to reduce sagging, and excess fat deposits can be removed if necessary. Neck lift surgery can be combined with a facelift to further address neck banding and wrinkles.
Patients who are in good health and concerned about their facial wrinkles, fine lines, and jowls may benefit from facelift surgery. Schedule a consultation today to see if this procedure is right for you.
As with any surgical procedure, there is downtime when patients need to rest and heal. The exact facelift surgery recovery time will depend on how extensive the correction was and the technique used. Dr. Diamond will give you specific instructions to follow to ensure you have a safe and effective recovery.
Recovery tips include moisturizing your skin, protecting yourself from the sun by wearing sunscreen and a large-brimmed hat, staying hydrated, and living a healthy lifestyle.Immediately After
After surgery, the face is gently wrapped with bandages to reduce any swelling or bruising. The head should be kept elevated as much as possible as the facial skin adapts to its new contours. Take it easy and get plenty of sleep during this time.One Week
Your symptoms should reduce after one week, and you can start light activities again. Most patients are able to return to work about one week after facelift surgery.Two Weeks
Light exercise may be resumed at this point if you feel up to it. You should see significant improvements in your facial appearance.Four to Six Weeks
Many patients can resume additional workout routines at this point, but strenuous or heavy workouts should still be avoided until after six weeks. Bruising, swelling, and discomfort should diminish by the sixth week, and your face should continue to improve.
Incisions are placed inconspicuously along the hairline to avoid noticeable scarring.
Depending on the technique used, the incisions for facelift surgery may extend around the ears into the lower hairline and/or along the temples. If necessary, incisions within the lower eyelids and upper lip may be used, and these scars are completely concealed. Dr. Diamond uses his extensive skill and experience to make careful incisions and minimize the appearance of scarring. All scarring continues to fade over time until the scars are almost invisible. Cosmetics can conceal them until they are unnoticeable.
The average cost of facelift surgery varies based on the extent of correction needed and the techniques used.
Dr. Diamond is one of the world’s foremost experts in facial plastic surgery. Depending on the patient’s facial anatomy, one of various techniques can be used to achieve the best results. Cost is dependent on many factors, such as the complexity of the case, duration, location, and surgeon’s expertise.
