Often the evidence of our age first reveals itself in certain vulnerable areas of our face. Furrows and fine lines in the brow and forehead, drooping eyelids and a fatigued-looking eye area, and a slack jaw line are signs that skin is losing its youthful resilience. As the body begins to slow down the production of collagen, the skin’s ability to regenerate is lessened. Facial rejuvenation treatments—which can range from non-invasive techniques like dermal resurfacing and injectable fillers to surgical facelifts— can combat the signs of aging. With the emergence and aid of sophisticated technologies, the field of aesthetic medicine continues to see new advancements. Keeping track of all the latest procedures can be a challenge. Moreover, determining which treatment or procedure will yield the most promising results requires professional expertise.
Dedicated to the highest standards, not just the latest trends, Los Angeles cosmetic surgeons Dr. Litner and Dr. Solieman of Profiles Beverly Hills have refined both surgical and non-surgical restorative techniques that can markedly improve the appearance of the skin. When performing facial rejuvenation procedures, Drs. Litner and Solieman utilize the most advanced techniques, imbuing them with a unique approach to optimize results.
The traditional facelift, or a rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure designed to address loose skin and loss of firmness in order to restore definition and rejuvenate the face. During a facelift procedure, the underlying muscles and tissue are repositioned and excess fat and skin removed, resulting in a reversal of some of the visible signs of aging. There are different facelift techniques, such as the Deep Plane Facelift and the Mini Facelift. LA Drs. Litner and Solieman have developed the Hybrid FaceliftTM, which results in shorter scars, and effectively addresses skin laxity in the cheeks, jawline, and neck, well as loss of facial fat and bone. A facelift can potentially give long-lasting results, with patients benefiting from firmer skin for many years to come.
A mini facelift surgery addresses wrinkles and saggy skin by way of small incisions placed by the ears. This is done in the lower third of the face such as on the chin. Dr. Litner or Solieman will remove excess skin by this area and tighten any loose skin, lessening the signs of aging and adding definition to your jawline. The jawline loses definition from aging, weight gain and even hormonal changes. At Profiles Beverly Hills, Drs. Litner and Solieman perform mini face lifts that accentuate your jawline, while giving your face a naturally more youthful look.
Revision facelifts are performed when the results of a prior surgery did not adequately address the concerns of the patient. Because a revision facelift tends to be more involved and complicated than a primary facelift surgery, it is important to consult an experienced surgeon who specializes in revisions. At Profiles Beverly Hills, Drs. Litner and Solieman perform revision face lifts, taking great care to thoroughly discuss with the patient the shortcomings of the previous outcome, expectations, and what can realistically be corrected.
Liposuction, a minimally invasive fat removal procedure, can vastly improve the definition of the jawline. During the procedure, Dr. Litner or Solieman will place microcannula, or small hollow stainless steel tubes, into the treatment area and eliminate the excess fat by suctioning it out. Requiring only local anesthesia or minimal sedation, liposuction results in a smoother, more streamlined chin and neck area—with no downtime or extended recovery.
One of the first places to show visible signs of aging, the forehead and brow area can weigh the expression down with creases and lines, sometimes resulting in a permanent angry, sad or worried countenance. A brow lift, also known as a browplasty and a forehead lift, can counteract the effects of diminished elasticity and drooping brow. At Profiles Beverly Hills, Drs. Litner and Solieman can expertly lift the height of the brow and, when necessary, reposition a sagging brow that is hooding upper eyelid. The result is a refreshed and more alert the facial appearance. To even the effect, a browlift can be performed in conjunction with other rejuvenating procedures.
Drooping upper eyelids and puffiness under the eye can age the face tremendously, adding years to even younger face. Although sagging eyelids and under-eye bags can become more obvious as a person ages, they also can appear in people in their twenties. In some cases, sagging eyelids can interfere with vision. To give the eye area a boost and restore the natural contour of the eyes, Drs. Litner and Solieman recommend a blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery. A blepharoplasty can remove excess fat and skin in the upper and lower eyelids, resulting in more rested and lively eyes. Because the incisions follow the natural folds of the eyelid, scarring is inconspicuous.
To fill out hollow, sunken eyes and ameliorate prominent dark circles, fat from other parts of the body can be transferred to the eye area. Using a state-of-the-art technique called “water-assisted liposuction” (WAL), Drs. Litner and Solieman can harvest the fat with minimal damage to the fat cells, leading to smoother, more effective and permanent results. Because the fat is harvested from the patient’s own body, the fat transfer is readily accepted, with no adverse reactions. When treating under-eye dark circles, Drs. Litner and Solieman often prescribe pigment-reducing topical to help patients get better results.
