Your Facelift at PROFILES Beverly Hills
Too often, former full facelift patients have found that the results of their procedure have faded over time. With the variety of trendy facelift procedures available today, such as the “three-day lift,” and the “lunch break lift,” it is sadly common for patients to receive the wrong kind of treatment, and the results end up fading away more quickly than expected.
However, patients should realize that these problems are not necessarily a flaw of facelifts techniques, but rather the fault of the doctors who are not offering the right kind of treatment for their patients’ specific needs. More importantly, if a particular technique did not work well the first time, it is not prudent to undergo the same procedure a second time in an attempt to improve the results.
At PROFILES Beverly Hills, Drs. Solieman and Litner have years of experience in not only their own facelift procedures but also in evaluating and correcting work that their patients previously had done. Above all else, communication is the key to identifying a patient’s exact needs so that the best treatment can be provided. Drs. Solieman and Litner are absolutely devoted to working with you every step of the way.
Revision procedures are ideal for rhinoplasty patients that need help with maintenance or improvement after the original results have begun to fade. This is especially appropriate for patients who have had previous work done primarily in the cheek area or near the corners of the nose or mouth.
A revision facelift, like every revision surgery, is more difficult than the initial procedure. Drs. Solieman and Litner provide each patient with a full analysis of their facelift history, to determine whether or not a revision lift is best.
Some of the potential risks and temporary side-effects associated with revision facelifts include:
At Beverly Hills Profiles, we have extensive knowledge and experience performing revision facelifts in LA. We work closely with each patient to provide them with the ultimate treatment plan that will help them achieve their aesthetic goals with no complications.
As experts in facial plastic surgery with many years of experience behind them, Drs. Solieman and Litner can adapt a number of facelift techniques to suit your needs. Many of the principles they employ in their signature PROFILES Hybrid Facelift are used in their revision facelifts as well, such as adding volume to the cheeks, using natural fat transfers to restore natural contours, and lifting both the skin and deeper tissue in the cheeks and neck.
Combined with the doctors’ unique lower eyelid lift (blepharoplasty), a revision facelift can restore the natural fullness and youthfulness of the face, just as though this was your first facelift procedure.* Drs. Solieman and Litner are world-renowned for their expertise in covering or hiding the scars attained in previous procedures. Very often our surgeons carefully use the same incision spots as before, or they successfully create new incisions in such a way that the old ones are covered. In other words, Drs. Solieman and Litner do their utmost to keep any new marks on your skin to an absolute bare minimum.

With their many years of experience in not only performing revisions but also innovating some of the newest techniques in the field, Drs.

Yes, if you are not satisfied with the results of your initial facelift, you can opt for a revision procedure. However, in most cases, it is best to wait for 6 to 12 months before having the revision facelift. The face heals and changes during the 12 months post-surgery, so it’s best to allow these changes to occur before attempting a revision.
The placement of the scars will depend on the surgeons’ unique approach. Drs. Litner and Solieman have earned a reputation for their ability to hide old scars, as they often use the same incisions as the original procedure. In cases where this is not possible, they create new incisions that help cover up the old scars.
Facelifts are designed to restore and preserve your youthful appearance. Therefore, the ideal facelift patient should be between the ages of 40 and 50. However, all patients are different, which means that some may benefit from a revision facelift at a younger or older age, so consult with an experienced plastic surgeon to learn more.
A compression garment can help your skin adapt to its new contour, reduce swelling, and accelerate your recovery. The amount of time you have to wear a compression garment will vary depending on the patient and the surgeon’s expertise. Drs. Solieman and Litner conduct a full assessment and discuss recovery information before each surgery.
Like all cosmetic surgeries, there are some risks and potential side-effects associated with revision facelift. These include the potential for a bad reaction to the anesthesia, swelling as well as discomfort during the recovery period, and other side-effects. At PROFILES, Drs. Litner and Solieman discuss the potential risks with their patients before the operation so that you can make an informed decision.
