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 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 a board-certified facial surgeon. The first consultation with Dr. Nima secures that we personalize your facial rejuvenation roadmap and find the optimal 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.
