Facelift Beverly Hills

The facelift procedure is one of the best procedures to address age-related changes including sagging skin along the lower face and neck, deep lines and wrinkles, and improvement to the jawline.

Often times, superior results are achieved with complementary procedures. Dr. Attenello may also recommend these to obtain a well balanced result. This can include an eyelift (blepharoplasty), browlift, or facial implants.

During the procedure:

During the procedure, all incisions are created with the goal of being hidden and discreet – usually in either your natural skin creases, behind your ear, and around your hairline. Dr. Attenello will then tighten the muscle layer underneath your skin that is contributing to the sagging skin, deep wrinkles, and jowls. Next, the skin is then nicely re-draped and trimmed to provide excellent natural appearing results. Dr. Attenello prides herself on personalizing each patient’s surgery to provide the best and most natural outcomes.

Recovery:

After surgery, patients will have a bandage wrap around their head and face for the first night to provide light compression. This helps with the bruising and swelling. Though, mild discomfort with some bruising and swelling is expected. Patients can usually resume some social activity after two weeks depending on their comfort level after some of the bruising and swelling has subsided. Any smoking should be stopped prior to surgery as this can harm the recovery and healing process.
