Eos Rejuvenation is a premier provider of facelift and facial rejuvenation surgeries in Beverly Hills. We understand that through time and the natural effects of aging, your face can lose collagen and elasticity, resulting in folds, contours, and shadows that diminish your inner vibrancy and youth. The taut heart-shaped face of youth may lose its shape, firmness, and definition, presenting a face that looks fatigued or tired when you are not.
Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Nima is a leading provider of facelift procedures in Beverly Hills. He has helped countless patients turn back the clock 10 to 15 years through facial rejuvenation techniques. Dr. Nima uses only the most advanced facelift procedures and state of the art technologies to reverse the effects of facial aging and restore a vibrant, firm, and youthful facial structure to countless patients in and around Beverly Hills.
Facelift plastic surgery, also known as rhytidectomy, focuses on rejuvenating the lower part of the face, including the cheeks, jawline, and neck. Depending on your personal cosmetic needs, a facelift may be combined with other upper facial plastic surgeries such as brow lift or eyelid surgery for enhanced facial reconstruction results. A facelift can help to shape and correct problem areas such as jowls that have developed in the cheeks and jaw, loose skin, and excess fat in the neck region, also known as “double chin” or “turkey neck.” A facelift may also help address the loss of volume in the face and any areas where relaxation or loss of collagen of the skin has caused sagging.
Rhytidectomy is the most popular plastic surgery procedure used by plastic surgeons to achieve beautiful, dramatic, and natural-looking results in one session. A lifechanging facelift requires the fine-drawn and expert hand of a seasoned surgeon with a long track record of high caliber cosmetic work. Dr. Nima is a top-rated board-certified plastic surgeon who has made facelifts a primary focus of his practice, using multiple facial reconstruction or rejuvenation surgeries alone or in combination to reverse the effects of aging 10-15 years and significantly reduce the appearance of folds, wrinkles, and plasticity of the face.

What Are The Primary Benefits Of Getting A Facelift?
The primary benefits for facelift cosmetic surgery include:
- Expertly restores a firm, youthful look to your facial structure
- Repairs the appearance of sagging skin, jowls, wrinkles, lines, and creases
- Produces natural, vibrant results without a “tight” or “pulled” look (only at Eos)
- Customizable design and results
- Turns back the biological clock 10-15 years with a single treatment
- Proven, long-lasting results
Improve The Appearance Of Sagging Cheeks And Jowls
A facelift can improve the appearance of sagging cheeks and jowls and many other visible signs of aging in the neck and lower part of the face. As people become older, facial tissue gradually loses volume, and skin loses elasticity and collagen as part of the natural aging process. This can lead to the development of deep wrinkles and loose skin on the lower part of the face and neck.
Facelift surgery in Beverly Hills can help patients achieve a more youthful appearance by smoothing deep folds, removing sagging skin, and tightening loose facial tissue. A facelift can help patients feel younger and more confident as they continue to age.
Am I a Candidate to Get a Facelift in Beverly Hills?
Rhytidectomy is well suited for candidates who maintain realistic expectations for the procedure and are in good mental and physical health. Good candidates for a facelift will have done substantial personal research and consulted a board-certified plastic surgeon for the potential risks, benefits, and costs.
A Facelift is Perfect For
Great candidates for a facelift may have any of the following signs of facial aging:
- Lack of jawline definition “double chin”
- Sagging jowl or loose facial skin
- Impressed smile lines
- Lack of volume in cheeks
- Marionette lines (present from side of the mouth to the chin)
- Lost vitality and volume (collagen) in facial tissues
A Facelift is Not so Perfect For
A facelift procedure should not be pursued by patients who:
- Whose expectations are not realistic
- Are currently experiencing emotional trauma
- Habitually smoke or use nicotine products
- Lack of understanding regarding the risks, benefits, or costs
- Are not in an adequate state of mental or physical health
How Old Do I have to Be to Get A Facelift?
Considering a facelift procedure is a highly personal decision, and there is no specific age that patients should have a facelift. Typically, patients start with a mini facelift or mid-facelift between the ages of 35 to 45 when the effects of aging result in collagen and elastin depletion. A full or “comprehensive” facelift is done more so through the ages of 45 and beyond. The facelift procedure depends on each individual’s aging process and is best suited for patients who are mentally and physically ready for the surgery.
I’m over 60 Years Old, Am I Too Old for a Facelift?
The simple answer to this is no. Increasingly so, patients’ “golden years” are approached with radiance and enthusiasm as they have the time and means to focus on themselves. As long you are in good physical and mental health to withstand the facelift surgery, beyond the age of 60 is as good a time as any to have a rhytidectomy.
A study by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) showed a “statistical insignificance” in post-op complications between younger and older plastic surgery patients. Both rates were low, with only a 0.10% difference between the younger and older groups.
I’ve Previously Had Facial Surgeries but Am Not Happy with The Results…
Dr. Nima offers spectacular results for secondary facelifts (Do-Overs) and facelift revisions. A secondary facelift is used to correct and adequately redesign the mistakes of a previous surgical procedure, or successfully revise a facelift that has aged over time. Dr. Nima understands that patients who seek out this type of corrective surgery require specialized attention to renew or correct previous surgical manipulations. He will be happy to go over your options for a facelift correction or revision in a personal consultation.
Facelift Surgical Techniques to Consider
Depending on a patient’s unique needs and parts of the face that need to be corrected, there are multiple facelifts and facial rejuvenation surgeries that can be performed by Dr. Nima.
The most popularly requested facelift surgeries requested by our Beverly Hills patients at Eos Rejuvenation include:
“Comprehensive” or Full Facelift
Also known as a standard, or traditional facelift, this procedure is often used to address moderate to advanced signs of aging and may involve more extensive surgical techniques such as repositioning of deeper facial tissue and the removal of excess, sagging skin. A full-face lift considerably smooths skin, redefines wrinkles, and is designed to create a more defined jawline, chin, and facial profile.
A mid-facelift, also referred to as a cheek lift or vertical facelift, targets the cheeks and under-eye hollows. This procedure helps to soften ‘marionette lines’ (present from the side of the mouth to chin) and elevates the corners of the mouth for a more rested look. Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) or micro-fat grafting are commonly paired with a mid-facelift for improved results.
A lower facelift aims to eliminate unwanted fat and tighten the skin by the neck, ear to mouth, and down. This procedure helps contour the cheeks, jowls and smooth the neck for a shapelier underlying structure. A lower facelift consists of surgically removing skin and fat in the lower face to correct the drooping “turkey neck” appearance because of genetics or the natural aging process.
A mini facelift can address mild cases of sagging and jowls by tightening facial tissue. This surgery is specially designed for younger patients showing signs of mild jowls or skin looseness but have not yet been affected by abundant signs of aging, including wrinkles, folds, and loss of collagen. Unlike a comprehensive or full facelift, a mini facelift is not as dramatic or invasive in nature.
Options for your facelift, expected results, and the mechanisms of the procedure will be clearly defined in an initial consultation. Dr. Nima may also recommend an accompanying procedure such as eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty), chin enhancement, nose surgery (rhinoplasty), or liposuction to produce enhanced results alongside a facelift.
Facelift Results – Before and After
It is important to find a board-certified surgeon with a long-standing history of successful and beautiful plastic surgery results before committing to a facelift. Dr. Nima uses the most advanced deep plane facelift techniques to create a more natural look, without the telltale signs of a pulled look.
During your initial consultation, Dr. Nima will give you the opportunity to explore photographs of his previous facelift patients, so you have a better understanding of how a facelift procedure can achieve your aesthetic ideal.
“Exceptional experience from start to finish! Dr. Nima’s careful, artful, and comprehensive examination of my face lead to results that exceeded all my expectations.” – Kat B.
Eos Rejuvenation Wellness Surgery Center | Beverly Hills
Your facelift will be performed at Eos Wellness Surgery Center, located in the heart of Beverly Hills, right next to Cedars Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles. We are a jCAHO and Medicare-certified outpatient surgery center meeting the highest standards and strictest criteria for certification. We ensure a comfortable stay throughout the duration of your rhytidectomy and welcome tours of the facility after your initial facelift consultation with Dr. Nima.
Facelift Procedure Process Explained
Eos Rejuvenation ensures our Beverly Hills patients will feel absolutely no pain or discomfort throughout the duration of their facelift surgery.
On the day of the surgery, you will be given either general or twilight anesthesia by an experienced member of our team to help you relax in preparation for the procedure. You will be comfortably asleep with general anesthesia or kept in a “twilight state” with twilight anesthesia throughout the entire procedure. Our trained surgical professionals guarantee a safe and hospitable experience at our Beverly Hills surgical center.
During a facelift, a series of indiscrete incisions are made along the hairline and around the ears. Dr. Nima then separates the skin from underlying tissue and muscles, then repositions facial tissue to eliminate jowls and tighten the facial skin. Excess skin along the cheeks and jowls are then expertly removed and pulled tightly to produce a smoother, more youthful facial contour without the “pulled” or “draped” look.
Dr. Nima has spent many years fine-tuning his surgical techniques to complete the facelift with minimal tugging or scarring on the skin. He consistently achieves long-lasting and natural facelift results through artfully placed incisions, employing a “no-skin-tension” technique that renders the incisions virtually invisible. His ultimate goal is to make his Beverly Hills patients look the way they feel – youthful, vibrant, and attractive – without evidence that they had a surgical procedure in the first place.
There is no blanket process when considering a facelift. Your facelift will be as unique as you are; therefore, it requires a highly personalized approach and in-depth consultation with an American Board-Certified Surgeon. The first consultation with Dr. Nima secures that we personalize your facial rejuvenation roadmap and find the best course of action that fits your cosmetic ideal.
Managing our Beverly Hills patients’ expectations and comfort is a high priority at Eos Rejuvenation. Our approach to facelift plastic surgery consists of opening up the lines of communication so we can accurately design a more refreshed and youthful facial structure, without the unnatural “windblown” or “pulled back” look created by less skilled surgeons.
The first consultation will take about an hour or more. During your consultation, Dr. Nima will:
- Listen to what you want to achieve with a facelift
- Carefully and thoroughly evaluate your health and facial areas of concern
- Answer all your questions regarding facelift procedures, financing
- Collaborate with you on developing an overall plan for your facial rejuvenation
- Tell you how to prepare for your facelift
- Discuss realistic results
All parts of the consultation are aimed to accomplish your desired cosmetic result and deliver a massive boost of confidence and a renewed sense of self that comes with your life-changing facial cosmetic surgery.
How Long Does a Facelift Surgery Take?
Depending on the complexity of the procedure or use of combination procedures, facelift cosmetic surgery can take about 3-6 hours. Each procedure will vary on a case-by-case basis, depending on the patient’s individual needs.
What Should I Expect in Terms of Recovery After My Facelift?
With all surgical procedures, it is important to listen to your pre- and post-surgery directions precisely. You will be able to go home on the day of the surgery after a brief stop in Eos Rejuvenation’s comfortable recovery room. Beverly Hills surgical procedure patients do not typically report pain, only mild discomfort from the incision area.
Generally, your stitches or bandages will be removed 7 days after surgery, and you can return to normal activities 1 to 2 weeks after. While you will see immediate results post-surgery, expect to see full facelift results after a few months once your incision site has healed completely. At this time, the superficial tissues and underlying muscles would have remarkably improved to unveil a firmer, younger, and more vibrant appearance.
In your post-op visit, Dr. Nima will discuss in detail:
- Pain and antibiotic medication management
- Proper cleaning and replacement of incision bandages
- Tips on how to comfortably sleep and exercise during recovery
- Usage of icepacks and ointments to reduce inflammation
- Best practice to maintain your look and promote healing
- Best skincare regimen and products to keep skin taut and moisturized
How Long Will the Results Last? Is There a Chance I’ll Need to Get Another Facelift in the Future?
The majority of facelift patients state that they feel 10 years younger and love their results! A well-maintained rhytidectomy can last upwards of 10 years or more, granted the patient maintains a strict skin regimen and a healthy lifestyle.
Your face will continue to age as time progresses, but your face will still look younger than it did if you had chosen not to invest in a facelift procedure. Post-surgery, you will have scheduled yearly visits with Dr. Nima to evaluate your facelift results. If necessary, Dr. Nima may recommend a secondary facelift to successfully revise and renew a facelift that has aged over time.
Other Things to Consider Before Getting a Facelift
Are There Any Risks Involved with Facelift Surgery?
Broad risks for rhytidectomy include:
- Residual scarring
- Incision infection (if not properly maintained)
- Hair or skin loss
- Facial asymmetry
- Residual numbness
Possibility of nerve injury
Every surgical procedure has a possibility for complications. A facelift procedure should only be performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon with a long history of successful results. Dr. Nima is committed to his craft and consistently completes countless safe and predictable facial rejuvenation surgeries with long-lasting and stunning results.
Should I Really Get a Facelift? Will I Really Look Good or Notice the difference?
Dr. Nima takes pride in the creation of natural-looking and artfully designed facelifts. Rhytidectomy is the number one plastic procedure done nationwide for its ability to bring back softness and firmness to the face, revise issues with sagging skin and wrinkles, and its capacity to turn back the clock 10-15 years, producing dramatic long-lasting results in one session. 95% percent of patients on RealSelf say their facelift procedure was “Worth It,” mentioning their results were beyond their expectations and they not only looked younger but felt younger too.
How Natural Will My Results Look After a Facelift?
As a Beverly Hills surgeon specializing in facial plastic surgery, Dr. Nima is an expert at creating natural-looking facelift improvements that can last for years to come, circumventing the aging process. Dr. Nima’s affinity to the arts helps him create a stunning facelift without the “pulled” or “draped look,” commonly seen with less attentive surgeons. He expertly places nearly invisible incisions along the hairline that heal inconspicuously for stunning, long-lasting, and natural facial cosmetic results.
A facelift can be maintained for years through a healthy lifestyle, as well as adequate skin and face protective measures. Proper sun care, proper nutrition, and maintaining a healthy weight can certainly help to extend the life of your facelift.
How Can a Facelift Restore My Youthful Appearance?
According to a study by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), patients who underwent a facelift rated themselves as looking an average of 12 years younger after surgery.
A facelift restores the appearance of youth and vitality by revising loose skin, deep folds, and sagging along the cheeks and jowls that can cause a patient to look fatigued or feel older. An expertly completed facelift by Dr. Nima restores a “younger” version of yourself, revitalizes and redesigns the heart-shaped face of youth and can often create a halo effect that boosts self-esteem and a healthy self-image for our Beverly Hills patients. Dr. Nima forgoes the generic and works diligently to uncover each patient’s unique beauty in a way that remains true to their authentic selves, ultimately revealing their own personal “masterpiece.”
