A Facelift, also called a rhytidectomy, is a plastic surgery procedure that helps reduce and improve the visible signs of facial aging. The more common age-related skin problems that a Facelift can treat are sagging facial skin, fold lines that appear between the nose and mouth, jowls, and loose skin with excessive fat around the neck (often referred to as a “turkey neck” or double chin).
The facelift procedure is a very popular, long-lasting treatment that can be performed using various techniques to help patients regain confidence and appear more youthful. At the Beverly Hills Aesthetic Surgical Institute, Dr. David Saadat has performed hundreds of facial plastic surgery procedures over the years. In addition to a traditional Facelift, we offer our Beverly Hills patients techniques that treat the whole face or can target specific problem areas.
Dr. Sadaat offers several different facelift procedures that can treat the signs of aging and provide you with significant rejuvenation.
At the Beverly Hills Aesthetic Surgical Institute, we have seen our Facelift Beverly Hills patients enjoy the following benefits from their surgery:
As with any surgery, the best candidates should be nonsmokers, be overall healthy, and maintain a positive outlook with realistic expectations regarding the procedure. Other characteristics that make a good candidate for Facelift are:
The first step in getting Facelift surgery in Beverly Hills is to contact the Beverly Hills Aesthetic Surgical Institute and schedule your appointment. When you come in for your initial consultation, you will get to meet with Dr. Saadat and explain the goals you have from the procedure. He will examine your facial structure and ask questions regarding your medical history, during which time it is very important to be open and honest with him to avoid any unnecessary risks or side effects during the surgery and recovery. The two of you will be able to discuss your options and decide on which techniques may be the best to achieve your desired results. Once he has collected all of this information, Dr. Saadat will be able to create your surgical plan.
If you agree with the plan, our Patient Coordinator will be able to help you select the best date and time for you. You will also receive a list of instructions to follow before your surgery to ensure you have the best and safest results.
You will be able to return home after your Facelift, however, you should arrange for a family member or friend to provide a ride for you. You should also consider having a capable adult be able to assist you for the first few days to make your recovery a little easier. Dr. Saadat will prescribe you temporary oral pain medication so that any pain you feel will be alleviated, as well as some instructions to follow that will help you get the most out of the results of your surgery, such as keeping your head elevated.
After a few days of recovery, you will be asked to return for a follow-up with Dr. Saadat so he can remove any bandages and sutures, and evaluate your healing process. He will reapply fresh bandages before sending you home. You can expect to be bruised and swollen during the first week or so, but the medications prescribed should help minimize any infection and lessen the bruised or swollen appearance.
After about the first week post-surgery, you can return to light housework, but you should still take it rather easy to promote proper healing. By the end of the second week, most patients feel comfortable enough to return to work and light exercise like walking, but again, you shouldn’t exert yourself during the initial stages of recovery. Towards the end of the first month of recovery, you may still have some residual swelling and tightness, but you should begin to look and feel much better. It’s also around this time that many patients feel well enough to return to a light workout routine and slowly develop from there. You can also expect some pinkish hues around the incision sites, but they will fade over time.
Before electing to get surgery, you should understand the basics of the procedure. While the following are only estimates, they will help give patients a good idea of what they can expect.
The cost of a Facelift in Beverly Hills is dependent on many factors, including which surgical techniques are utilized and the degree of work necessary to achieve your desired results. The best way to learn how much your surgery will be is to come in for an initial consultation with Dr. Saadat. After meeting with you and creating your treatment plan, our Patient Coordinator will be able to provide you with a breakdown of your surgery cost.
