The Next Generation of Facelift Procedures
Our exclusive PROFILES Beverly Hills Hybrid Face LiftTM
From Drs. Solieman and Litner’s years of experience performing face lifts, they have learned what works best. They have incorporated these techniques into what they have named their Hybrid FaceliftTM, a twist on the traditional face lift. Scars that result from the Hybrid LiftTM are shorter than they are from a traditional face lift. This procedure can improve the jaw line and the neck as well as the cheek area. Combined with Drs. Litner and Solieman’s unique lower eyelid lift (‘blepharoplasty’) that restores and replaces fat along the lower eyelid, The Hybrid LiftTM can eliminate the hollowing often associated with aging and recreate the contours that define a youthful appearance.
As premiere Beverly Hills and Los Angeles Facelift Surgeons, we recognized long ago that there was a better way to achieve everything our facelift patients wanted. The result has been the proprietary Hybrid LiftTM, created by the facelift surgeons Dr. Litner and Dr. Solieman of PROFILES Beverly Hills.
The Hybrid LiftTM, in one procedure, successfully addresses the two main signs of facial aging:
- Loss of tone and increased laxity of facial skin and muscles, and
- Loss of facial fat and bone volume
This innovative face lift surgery procedure combines the best of all available techniques and provides results that are superior to the Mini Face Lift and the Traditional Facelift. As well recognized specialists in facial plastic surgery, we know that for facial rejuvenation to work optimally, lifting and volume must be coupled in cosmetic facelift surgery. In fact, we’ve had the opinion for some time that some sort of volume is needed as part of any procedure that deals with the cheek and under eye area. So, we’ve incorporated micro fat transfer as part of our Hybrid LiftTM in the cheek area and around the mouth for most of our patients who are face lift candidates. In this way we are able to give your entire face a consistently smooth, youthful convexity without the usual negatives of a traditional face lift.
During the Hybrid LiftTM we achieve volume enhancement using your own fat because much of it will last permanently and, perhaps most importantly, it is natural and safe. As far as surgery, mini face lifts occasionally are indicated, but we have found that patient satisfaction and long term natural results really depend on addressing the underlying, descending tissue (the SMAS).
With the Hybrid LiftTM the skin is lifted in the lower face and neck so that the excess can be appropriately trimmed. But, we then go into a deeper plane to extensively lift the sagging tissues underneath the skin. It’s this lift that actually creates a lasting, naturally beautiful outcome and minimizes swelling and bruising of the skin, shortening your recovery time. All the tension of the lift is placed on these deep tissues so your skin can drape naturally over your jawline and cheek bones without ever having a hint of a pulled look. The extra saggy skin is tailored and removed via the smaller incision which leaves less scarring and also leads to a quicker recovery. And a quicker recovery means you can start looking fabulous even sooner!

After your Surgery at PROFILES Beverly Hills
Most of our patients describe feeling some discomfort the night of surgery but rarely is pain a significant issue. You will be provided with pain medications should you need them both during the first night and, if necessary, for the days that follow.
Dr. Solieman and Dr. Litner will check on you that first night after surgery, and will see you in the office the day following surgery. Your progress will be closely followed during the first weeks, and you will be given a list of activities that should be avoided in the weeks after surgery. The stitches will be removed within the first week, while self-absorbing stitches will dissolve on their own. You should expect to be socially presentable within seven to ten days after surgery and back to full normal activities within two to three weeks.
Your follow-up appointments will be scheduled ahead of your surgery, so that you do not have to worry about making arrangements. And, we are so committed to your long term results and happiness, that we will follow your postoperative course even years after your surgery.
