Facelifts at PROFILES Beverly Hills
Facelifts are among the most effective methods used to correct signs of aging on the face. Individuals seeking a way to turn back the hands of time and rejuvenate their appearance may wish to consider one of the facelift procedures that we offer at PROFILES Beverly Hills. A facelift is a restorative surgery that does not alter the appearance of your face, but rather provides an overall rejuvenation and lifting of the face. As we age, the loss of collagen and the effects of gravity over time result in sagging skin, loss of muscle tone and skin volume, displacement of fat, and the formation of deep creases. A facelift is able to correct these signs of aging by lifting and repositioning the foundational layer of the skin. There are a variety of facelift techniques used by plastic surgeons today; however, at PROFILES Beverly Hills we offer only a carefully selected set of facelift types and techniques to our patients in Los Angeles. Based on our years of experience performing facelifts, we have found that these approaches offer the most effective results. Of course, the approach that you choose will be uniquely tailored to provide a natural and refined appearance that's right for you.
The Hybrid LiftTM
The Hybrid LiftTM utilizes a variety of techniques that Drs. Solieman and Litner have found to be the most effective. A twist on the traditional facelift, this procedure is designed to address the main signs of facial aging – loss of tone, increased laxity of skin and muscle, and the loss of facial volume as a result of fat and bone volume loss. This proprietary facelift, offered only at PROFILES Beverly Hills in LA, combines the best facelift techniques, providing superior results to our patients. During the facelift, our plastic surgeons will address the deepest layer of the face, known as the SMAS. This layer contains the deepest tissues and musculature of the face. A lift performed on this layer produces a very natural look, as all tension is placed on the deep tissues, eliminating any risk of overly tight or pulled skin.
Our Los Angeles surgeons also incorporate a micro fat transfer as part of the Hybrid LiftTM. In order to achieve an ideal effect, we believe that volume restoration should be a part of a comprehensive facelift procedure. This is to combat the loss of volume and fat that comes with age. We commonly add volume by transferring fat from the patient's own body to the cheeks and under eye area to provide a more youthful, smooth contour to the face.
Mini Face Lift
Our Mini Face Lift is able to provide effective results to a select set of patients. Mini facelifts have been growing in popularity, but Drs. Solieman and Litner will only recommend this procedure if they believe it will truly benefit their patient. A Mini Face Lift can provide great results to younger patients who still have good skin elasticity and are only showing early signs of aging. The procedure may also be appropriate for patients who require only minimal improvements, in particular around the jawline and jowls area. Alternately, a Mini Face Lift could be performed on patients who require a touch up after a previous traditional facelift. This approach is minimally invasive and is essentially a "tuck up" procedure. If you are interested in this approach, we encourage you to discuss your goals with our Los Angeles surgeons, so they can help you determine if the Mini Face Lift is right for you.
Our plastic surgeons specialize in revision facelifts for patients who are dissatisfied with the results of a previous facelift. Our doctors have found that the popularization of many "quick" facelifts procedures (such as the 3-Day Face Lift or Executive Face Lift) has increased the number of patients who seek a revision facelift. Unfortunately, these trendy facelifts do not tend to provide long-lasting results, resulting in the need for a revision facelift. In other cases, a unsatisfactory face lift may be the result of poor communication between patient and doctor. At PROFILES Beverly Hills, we listen closely and patiently to all of our patients so we can meet their goals with a tailored facelift approach.
